Secular Apocalypticism is 21st C. terminology used to characterize coming (anticipated) global upheavals in economics, religion,
government order, as well as, a spate of natural catastrophes.  The
secular occurrences are predicated on a platform of probability
theory, stastical projection models (e, g., atmospheric driven  weather), and internet sampling engines to predict events via frequency
of similarity, etc.  Biblical prophetic, eschatological, or scriptural pronouncements are
not a part of  any or all secular equations for
factoring event probability.  GOD is definitely not a part of the hypothesis, unless it is a null hypothesis.
SECULAR  APOCALYPTICISM
Truth and Science
When Truth is determined according to the record of mankind's historical trial-n-error, plus scientific schema vs. God's absolutes, then
anticipated catastrophic events will be less augured than chance probability (50%).  Science ostensibly analyzes and quantifies
immediate vs. past samples (data) and extrapolates to future occurrences.  As  
science improves its sampling techniques, the results
(
secular truth) correspondingly become  more relevant and representative.  Science in  the 21st C. is escalating its achievement in
sorting through age-old mysteries, diseases, atmospheric changes, and even astronomical events to come.  Oddly  enough, the searing
question being asked today: is humankind rapidly approaching its
fait accompli?  Science on balance says not, biblical scripture says
before we possibly can imagine.
Darwinism vs Creationism
Darwinism is a form of nefarious atheism.  No need to parse the definition, God is not recognized in this anti-theology, and on
balance, it denies God as the origin of all life.  Further, this atheism has no methodology or stratagem for addressing the ubiquitous
worry about endtime consequences from unforeseen events and 'sudden' happenings. We are living in a season of the 'suddenlies' (e.g.,
9/11) and without a discernment of  things other than in the past, or immediate present, there is no foundation for foreseeing the
near-future, much less near-distant-horizons.  All they are looking for is imparted and revealed in Biblical scripture, yet to embrace
the God of all Creation denies the
god of this world.(2)

Imagine there's no heaven.  It's easy if you try.  No hell below us.  Above us only sky.  Imagine all the people
Living for today ... Imagine there's no countries.  It  isn't hard to do.  Nothing to kill or die for.  No religion too.  
Imagine all the people Living life in peace.  Imagine no possessions.  I wonder if you can.  No need for greed or
hunger.  A brotherhood of man.  Imagine all the people Sharing all  the world .. You may say I'm a dreamer.  But
I'm not the only one.  I hope some day you'll join us.  And the world will live as one.

"Imagine"
One would have to look far and wide to find a timelier mantra, than that written by Lennon at the beginning of the Age of Aquarius, to
serve as the 21st C. social-progressive political agenda.  This agenda is presently inundating Congressional legislation and steering
America's international diplomacy.  Again, the Lennon mantra has absolutely no reference or recognition of GOD, only a passing
reference to hell, but serves as a phantasmal
nirvana embellishment for wishful thinking.  Needless to say, it has been a stellar success
among the
live in the now generation(s).  It also portends a coming global governance, ecumenical secular unification, and redistribution
of wealth.  Was Lennon a prophet, Not, just a dyed-in-the-wool individual living in, through, and for the flesh with a gifted set of
lyrics.  His songs still resonate throughout college campuses, wobble anchorless souls, and agnostic communities.  Lest we forget, Satan
was the music director in heaven during his tenure there, and still has the seductiveness to woo the fevered soul and pen endearing
melodies to sway man's mind astray ... the consummate Pied Piper(3) .
The craving for world government did not begin with John Lennon.  In the book of Genesis, the people decided to
build a city and a tower to provide a focal point for the unity of the human race.  The tower of Babel and the city of
Babylon became a symbol of security---oneness for mankind.  From that  time till now, the dream of world
government has driven men to conquest in pursuit of the vision of one world.  Since "money answers all things,"
(sound familiar?) and "the love of money is the root of all evil," their (social liberal) first moves were financial.  They
reasoned that if economic union could be achieved, political and cultural union would surely follow(4) [parenthesis

Cravings
The PBS, History, Learning, and National Geographic cable channels are now replete with evolutionary paradigms for explaining all
things great and small
, the origin of life, along with futuristic extra-galactic phenomenon holding valence over planet earth.  A harmony
of religious persuasions appears to be a must for mankind to reach its apex of spiritual awareness ... thus enter,
universal ecumenical
religion
.  The false prophet cannot be far behind. (Rev. 16:13)  The publishing, marketing, and sale of quasi-eschatological centered
materials are now big business, in all of its media forms.  Television broadcasts featuring
guru-type soothsayers and contemporary
mystics are becoming ubiquitous.  Electronic and digital media platforms are in full competition with mainstay religious venues.  The
witchcraft in the Potter series has swept away many a youthful mind into fantasy-type empowerments and sorcery enchantments.  
Crop circles, UFO's, and demonic apparitions are about to become mainstream.   The paranormal will become commonplace in the
evolving secularized social-progressive acculturation.

Nomenclature a-Changin'
21st C. antecedents to e-Global whatever: e-Government (digital Gov.), e-Commerce (e-business/banking), e-religion (internet gospel),
e-Defense (remote actuation "wireless").  Global Nations (no individual sovereignty), ecosystems (greenized technology) and in the
second half of the tribulation period there will be an abominable   e-god in the Temple of desolation (Matt. 24:15).  That envisioned
e-god (anti-christ empowered android-like creature) will be the one that ignites conclusion to the secular apocalyptical saga.  God's
endtime eschatological Plan will be made complete as secular apocalyptical counterfeits are manifesting without even knowing that
which they are  attempting to emulate.  The will be a satanic-trinity.  Is has been said,
fiction imitates life, yet here we have the
counterfeit  attempting to imitate the
real.
Bottom-Line
What America is witnessing through this present Administration, Congress, and implosion of Wall Street (et al.) is the precursor to
this great nation being willingly co-opted into the global systemic.  This systemic will embrace regulation of transnational e-financial
transactions, hegemony-type regional governance, militarization of national assets, and omnipresent religious ecumenism.  There are
those which will quickly retort ...
that will never happen here!  It is already happening today.  Those which continue to deny the
outworking of God's scripturally based endtime Plan(5), and only adhere to secular wisdoms, will literally become
spoils unto the
enemy.
The non-Christian world is heralding the coming nirvana (Far Eastern-type utopia) as being just within it grasp.  Several mainline
Christian denominations are in the process of
falling away (i.e., the apostasia) from biblical absolutes and embracing convoluted
tenants of belief in order to satisfy deviate aspects within their denominational congregations.
Valley of Decision
Mankind is literally at the precipice of its eternal point of decision: to choose God and His Plan for salvation, deliverance and eternal
life, or mankind's self-reliance and secular wisdom to overcome and survive the coming tumults racing towards all humanity.  When
mankind reaches the
Valley of Decision(6) it will be a fait accompli for God will have already decreed His judgment on the unbelieving
"multitudes".
Do not wait to make your eternal decision, if you have not done so already ... 'time' is not on our side, mankind's collective judgment
has brought itself to the fault line of global disasters.  Once God's Age-of-Grace has run its course there will be no further opportunity
to recapitulate and plea for more divine immunity or exemption from His
judgments. Once the Tribulation Period begins, it begins,
and the time of its completion is set in scripture (seven years).  Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of
salvation". (2 Cor. 6:2)
