Blurb/Shorttext:
Though a preponderance of news coverage, scholarly research, and non-academic books have addressed the topic of modern Christian apocalyptic belief from a sociological, political and religious perspective, relatively little has been written about the issue of what some would see as the other end of the cosmological or spiritual spectrum: the apocalyptic beliefs of New Age adherents. This study gathers new empirical data on this population through the use of a 40-question survey designed to measure the ontological beliefs of participants, apocalyptic expectations and their level of engagement in the political process. In a wide variety of correlation and group comparison tests, a negative relationship was found between New Age apocalyptic belief and political/civic engagement. There also seemed to be a hint that more catastrophic views of the future produce a greater likelihood of disengagement from the political or electoral sphere.
