For two years now, the Doomsday Clock has remained silent...but...
On January 26, 2017, The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists hosted a live international news conference at 10:00 a.m. EST to announce "an adjustment" of the infamous Clock.
The reason? Donald Trump, of course.
"Never before has The Bulletin decided to advance The Clock largely because of the statements of a single person," said the scientists. Apparently, the Science and Security Board, in consultation with the Board of Sponsors, which includes 15 Nobel Laureates, fears a nuclear tweet.
While President Trump isn't the only reason The Clock inched 30 seconds closer to midnight, his influence is all over the 2017 "adjustment" which was made because of:
- a rise in strident nationalism worldwide
- a darkening global security landscape that is colored by increasingly sophisticated technology
- a growing disregard for scientific expertise (uh-oh)
- and last, but not least--The President's comments on nuclear arms and climate issues (you never wanna touch them climate issues, people. Not with a 10-foot pole)
And wait...there's more...
According to a brand-spanking-new Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists Poll, 78% (of those who also fear a nuclear tweet) agree.
A wise man once said: "...we need not be so utterly vague in our discerning of the times. For Jesus gave a much fuller description of time markers that we must look for just prior to His Second Coming. For one thing, Israel is most certainly one of the Lord's most polished timepieces, in the countdown and close out.of this age." --Maranatha Ministries
"...Time is running out. Wake up, for the coming of our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. The night is almost gone; the day of salvation will soon be here. So don't live in darkness. Get rid of your evil deeds. Shed them like dirty clothes...
Don't participate in wild parties and getting drunk, or in adultery and immoral living, or in fighting and jealousy. But let the Lord Jesus Christ take control of you..." Romans 13:11-14
