He may be on to something because on Tuesday, January 24th, the Doomsday Clock got 10 seconds closer to the end. The Doomsday Clock has been ticking for over 75 years now and it's no ordinary clock.

The Doomsday Clock keeps track of how close we are coming to destroying our world. On Tuesday, the clock was set at 90 seconds until midnight...the closet to end that its ever been.

The Doomsday Clock was created in 1947 and midnight represents the moment at which we'll have made the Earth unlivable for humanity. The clock hasn't moved since 2020 when the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists set it to 100 seconds to midnight.

The Doomsday Clock Moves Closer To Midnight

The decision to move the clock 10 seconds ahead is mostly due to the Russia invasion of Ukraine and the talk of a nuclear escalation in that war. The Bulletin says that the clock isn't designed to measure existential threats but to start at conversation

From the best that I can tell, the clock has only moved forward and never gone backwards. None of us really know for sure when the end will be here but I do know how it ends. How do I know you ask?

Because I've read the Book and in the end, we win and I hope that you're on the winning team too.
