UFO and ET Fascination Among the Rich and Powerful
"American Cosmic: UFOs, Religion, Technology,” by Dr. Diana Pasulka, demonstrates, the fascination with alien life has found a home among the successful, educated and powerful in the United States, and their interest is not without cause.
When one considers how burgeoning religions have often been viewed throughout history — skepticism, dismissal and anger — the link Pasulka is draws between ufology and religion no longer seems so ridiculous. Still, it may be some time before the study of extraterrestrial life becomes a part of mainstream academic discourse.
