I quip to them that if the Far Right is correct, we will have to deal with a spiritual apocalypse
Bullshit, but it has the advantage of being totally out of our control.
and if the secular intellectuals are right, it will be global warming and possibly other apocalyptic (or at best) societally changing events.
Do you doubt "if"?
But what do you think secularism has to do with it? Do you not understand that science is not secular?

We also need to watch out for false prophets
All prophets are false. And that includes those who tell you that gold is a great investment.

The issue is are we ready?
The issue is that you're a religious crack-pot desperate for the world to end.
Doom is inevitable. Death and Taxes are inevitable, but we usually give them a rest when we can.
So write your will and get on with life you bell-end.
I suppose you would encourage me to drop the Bronze Age "superstitions and mythos", get on board the Humanist bandwagon, and go to infinity and beyond!
I'd encourage you to just enjoy this life why you have it.
