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.
