    Anyone can try to convince you that Luke is not the chosen one. But it is highly unlikely anyone will be able to do so. Because you have your own theory as to why Luke is the chosen one. It is a good theory. An interesting read, and I did enjoy it. You wrote it very, very well. But I don't know if anyone will be able to sway your opinion.

    @SpaceFlake "your going to find that many of the truths you cling to depend greatly on your own point of view."
    You have your theory and you believe it to be true \m/
    This is mine:

    "For over a thousand generations the Jedi Knight's were guardians of peace and justice in the galaxy." "The Sith have been extinct for over a millennia."
    During the PT the force was out of balance. It was all but all the way to the Light side of the spectrum.
    Anakin brought balance to the force by turning to the Dark side and wiping out most of the Jedi (Light).
    Luke did not \m/

    Yes the Empire ruled with an iron fist, they had enslaved many star systems. "Fear, fear will keep the star systems in line".
    During the OT the force was again out of balance. It was all but all the way to the Dark side of the spectrum.
    Anakin brought balance to the force by turning to the Light side and choosing to save his son and destroying the Emperor (Dark).
    Luke did not \m/

    If "balance means equal parts on both sides of the same spectrum; dark and light, equal polarities." Then Anakin Skywalker brought balance to the force. In order for one to bring balance they will have had to have been on both sides of that spectrum. Anakin was. He was a Jedi Knight (Light) and a Dark Lord of the Sith (Dark). Luke was only a Jedi (Light). He was never on the other side of the spectrum (Sith).

    I've mentioned it already, but it was a while ago. I am firmly on the side of Anakin being the Chosen One for the simple reason that it's canon, and the explanation makes sense to me. I wouldn't go as far to say that George was a "notorious liar," but admittedly he did waffle quite a bit.

    The key word here, as everyone has brought up already, is "balance." Balance in this case doesn't mean equal numbers, but it's a way of describing the health of the Force. As we heard Palpatine describe it in ROTS, the Sith were using the Force in ways that were "unnatural." This has been compared to being like a cancer on the Force. Think of it in terms of the human body; if we had cancer, our bodies would be out of balance - but not because of the unequal number of cancerous and healthy cells.

    "Balance" was attained once the Sith were eliminated; a feat Anakin/Vader accomplished, with the help of his son, at the end of ROTJ. The fact that his son was crucial to the process doesn't change the fact that it was Anakin's actions that brought an end to the Sith (Palpatine and himself). Luke couldn't have done it. Anakin was the Chosen One.

    (Also, "the other Yoda spoke of was your twin sister..." Not a lot of wiggle room for interpretation there. :) ).

    From wookiepedia:

    In 20 BBY, during the Clone Wars, the aging Father drew Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker to Mortis so that the Chosen One could replace him as the keeper of the peace between his rival children, the Son and Daughter, who represented the dark and light sides of the Force, respectively.


    So yes, he was the chosen one but he did not fulfil the prophesy. I also know this is not 100% official cannon anymore but it is my personal cannon xD
