    American Cosmic Kindle æ Audio CD american download, cosmic mobile, American Cosmic PDFThe author is a religious expert who studies the religious and has branched into studying UFOlogists since there is a real crossover between both sets of people Both sets of people want to believe in unseen or at least unverified things hoped for and want to believe that the truth is out there in some form thus placing meaning not within the person but outside of them The author frames our meaning by how we interpret our world through our experience physical evidence and the social milieu we find ourselves currently dwelling in thereby laying the ontological it’s a word she uses multiple times foundation for

    American Cosmic Kindle æ Audio CD american download, cosmic mobile, American Cosmic PDFWhile there's an occasional good idea in American Cosmic DW Pasulka can't seem to string together a single paragraph without resorting to hagiography pointless academic authoritarian posturing or contextless dogma In short this book is a mess and is so trite as to reuire a belief in the reader that every anecdote is self serving fiction Not a good look There are far better books about UFOlogy and far better books about modern belief systems and the emergence of mysticism in response to rapid technological changeexistential anxiety Read those instead and save yourself some time

    American Cosmic Kindle æ Audio CD american download, cosmic mobile, American Cosmic PDFTHIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERSI was very disappointed in this book I wanted it to be an in depth exploration of unexplained phenomenon perhaps in the footsteps of Jacues Vallee's excellent work Vallee's name appears often in this book but it contains none of Vallee's subtle in depth examination of this enigmatic subjec

    American Cosmic Kindle æ Audio CD american download, cosmic mobile, American Cosmic PDFFew topics receive immediate ridicule like UFOs Although this is a programmed response—well documented by those who study it—it nevertheless keeps many professionals from following their curiosity D W Pasulka’s American Cosmic is a brave book that bucks this trend Pasulka a professor of religious studies explains how she came to be interested in UFOs The book is partially an account of a secretive man she met through official channels and partially an exploration of how religion and the paranormal particularly UFOs are related And also how technology plays into it The account is skillfully woven and it will leave you scratching your head i

    American Cosmic Kindle æ Audio CD american download, cosmic mobile, American Cosmic PDFThis alternated between a really dense read integrating discussion of uantum theory and consciousness studies with case studies of credible yet many times invisible scientists biotechnologists and computer engineers who are absolutely convinced that extraterrestrial life what Pasulka terms the phenomenon exists Pasulka a religious studies scholar claims that she seeks to explore the effects of belief in UFOs as a new form of religion on individuals and society than stake a claim to belief in the phenomenon's ontological reality but it certainly seems as if she skews in the direction of its veracity She so matter of factly states as plausible specific readings

    American Cosmic Kindle æ Audio CD american download, cosmic mobile, American Cosmic PDFThis was a fascinating read Pasulka applies her methodology as a religion researcher to the UFO community and examines how modern technology and media play into what in her mind are the euivalent to religious experiences for some This was very interesting to me on multiple levels First I love the X Files and am interested in UFOlogy alien stuff lol so I found her comparisons of experiences and sighting to documented miracles within the church fascinating TO be clear she's not exactly saying all this stuff is true but instead saying that the parts of our brains that light up and process these two things are the same We have the same kinds of reactions to them and process them in similar ways She extends this concept to digital media literacy which as a librarian is HUGE for me This w

    American Cosmic Kindle æ Audio CD american download, cosmic mobile, American Cosmic PDFI finished this book faster than anything I’ve read in the last 10 years I found out about it after Ezra Klein interviewed her last week on his podcast Honestly though this book is divisive If you’re looking for proof of aliens or government coverups this isn’t going to really scratch your itch It does however raise all sorts of wild as hell uestions about how billionaires astronauts scholars and everyday people explore the subject of the unknown Pasulka is a professor of religious studies and her style really lends itself to a fun and easy to follow discussion I am not saying I believe or agree with some of the people highlighted in this book I do find this topic absolutely fascinating though 55 stars
