NEWS UPDATE Doomsday Clock Apocalypse is 30 seconds closer
Scientists say the world has edged closer to apocalypse in the past year amid a darkening security landscape and comments by Donald Trump. The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists (BPA) moved the minute hand of the symbolic Doomsday Clock from three minutes to two-and-a-half minutes to midnight. It is the second closest it has been.
BPA chief Rachel Bronson urged world leaders to “calm rather than stoke tensions that could lead to war”. In a report, the BPA said President Trump’s statements on climate change, expanding the US nuclear arsenal and the questioning of intelligence agencies had contributed to the heightened global risk. It is the closest the clock has come to midnight since 1953, when the minute hand was moved to two minutes away following hydrogen bomb tests by the US and Russia.
The election to Donald Trump as president of America has in itself moved the world closer to “apocalypse” according to a group of scientists. The doomsday clock began in 1947. It was created to convey the dangers nuclear war to the public. Midnight symbolises (on this clock) the moment that mankind annihilates himself. It is interesting to see how the hand of the clock has moved over the last 70 years. 1991 was the furthest away from midnight. It stood at 17 minutes to midnight. This was when Russia and America signed nuclear arms reductions. But ever since then it has moved ever closer to midnight. “Never before has the Bulletin decided to advance the clock largely because of the statements of a single person,” the scientists wrote. “But Mr. Trump’s statements and actions have been unsettling.” The Bible says judgement is coming. It also talks of midnight as being the symbolic moment when Jesus physically returns.
While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. This is the point Jesus returns. The world will NOT end. He will intervene to save those who have oil [faith] in their lamps and restore the world.
The Weekly World Watch is written and sent by myself ( Andy Walton)- it is my take on events and I accept that on occasions I will miss significant events and also misinterpret them as well. However I will endeavour to be faithful to the scriptures and hope that it will be of benefit to both of us.
