UFOs, Conspiracy Theories and the New Age: Millennial by David G. Robertson

By David G. Robertson

How-and why- have been UFOs so usual in either conspiracy theories and the recent Age milieu within the post-Cold warfare interval? during this ground-breaking ebook, David G. Robertson argues that UFOs symbolized an uncertainty in regards to the obstacles among clinical wisdom and alternative ways of validating wisdom, and therefore grew to become a part of a shared vocabulary.

Through historic and ethnographic case reviews of 3 popular figures-novelist and abductee Whitley Strieber; environmentalist and reptilian proponent David Icke; and David Wilcock, alleged reincarnation of Edgar Cayce-the research unearths that millennial conspiracism deals a proof as to why the prophesied New Age didn't arrive-it was once avoided from arriving through malevolent, hidden others. but millennial conspiracism constructs a counter-elite, a gnostic 3rd occasion outlined through their distinct knowledge.

An review of the advance of flying saucers subcultures from the viewpoint of non secular reviews, UFOs, Conspiracy Theories and the hot Age is an cutting edge program of discourse research to the examine of ultra-modern substitute religion.
