What has any prophecy said on the kind of people that will be in the future? Will they be more bad than good? Will they be more overly good to the point of really bad than good? Will they be half alien? Will they be mutants? Will they be more in part cyborgs? Etc?

Depends on how far in the future you are thinking.
Tomorrow is the future for instance, and I think people will be just the same.

I have read many prophyseys concerning "our" future ...the consensus seems to be that most people who survived did so by hiding in caves in the mountains/or just the mountains period...The expression "Head for the hills" seems to go back a long way...then we apparntly have "A thousand years of peace",which will be about long enough for things to get crowded again and who knows what happens next...no information about people changing...i kinda doubt it.

To paraphrase Jesus and Monty Python's "The Life of Brian": "The meek shall inherit the earth, which is great because they're having a terrible time otherwise."

there will be a sizeable number of BlackSmiths...

not because industry & technology has regressed,
but because there will be millions of tons of Swords to beat into PlowShares

The only recognizable people will be slaves and robots (or some mixture). Their job will be to feed the bodies and minds of the elites, who will be parasitic lumps of flesh that move only according to their own pleasure - a bit like now really.
While physically weak, they will control us from a telepathic virtual world in which we appear as insignificant insects.

All the prophecies I know of (both mainstream/religious and non religious/mystical) talk about humanity degrading into downright depravity and a total loss of morals. After that, there is a golden age of either enlightenment or purity. So kind of a 'darkest before dawn' type of scenario.

I don't know of any prophecies that talk about humans no longer being human, though. In terms of mutants or some sort of new evolutionary species. The only ones of that type of which I'm aware (and this is loose) is that humanity will eventually be complete spiritual creatures.

ETA: Just saw your 'cyborg' comment. I'm only familiar with one set of beliefs (singularity) that speak of a 'computerized' type of humanity. Basically, they believe human essence can be transported into a computer where they can live forever (or something like that).

I'm a Christian so I believe humanity will sink into a loss of morals, suffer tribulation, then find peace in a golden age where depravity is no more.

Interestingly, I've just began reading "Lyotard and the Inhuman" (Stuart Sim, Postmodern Encounters series, Icon Books). So far it certainly brings out mergings of physicality and consciousness between the human and technology beyond the notion of "singularity".
According to a short Vedic view we're living in the Kali-Yuga. This means the age of quarrel and hypocricy. The worst is we're still in the beginning phases, and it's likely to get worse.

In this golden age without depravity, how will people procreate (considering that everyone is here because some female ancestor was raped, and a considerable amount of procreation nowadays is rape - see wars, Africa). How do we define "depravity"? Will God equal out the genders so that every man can have his woman?
Then I also wonder, what will be the incentive to go to heaven and give money to the churches? Or are you implying that the spiritual and material worlds will somehow merge, and there won't be physical death?
In that case we better not procreate by any means, because if nobody dies we'll be alarmingly overpopulated in half-a-decade.
Maybe we'll lose all interest in sex (like Jesus) and become some kind of sterile third gender.
Then we can happily live in same-gender communities without procreation or death.

Sex/procreation is not depravity when it is done within the bonds of marriage according to Christianity. So unless you think ALL sex is 'icky,' sex/procreation in itself within the marital union is not depravity.

And according to Christianity, during the millineum (the period to which I am referring), there will still be death. After the millineum, the world is destroyed by fire and is no more (from what I understand).

An often quoted point, apt (at least theoretically) for Christian believers.
What about rape in marriage - marital rape was one of the last forms of woman-abuse recognized because of the Biblical arguments? You say "sex/procreation" as if the two forms of sex were equal in religion. Even marital sex for pleasure has been a recent (liberal) phenomenon. The Biblical argument strongly stands for sex as procreation, and not for lust itself.
I would assume a world without depravity would be a world without temptation or "sin". So when it's time for the odd procreation the genders might go into time-limited heat, like dogs or cats, and get the "horrible" lust over and done with. A world without sin could also mean that God lifts all the sanctions against it. Either way; in the future: spay or neuter your kids!
