The symbolic Doomsday Clock, which indicates how close our planet is to complete annihilation, is now only 100 seconds away from midnight.

The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists (BAS) said on Thursday that the change was made due to nuclear proliferation, failure to tackle climate change and "cyber-based disinformation".

The clock now stands at its closest to doomsday since it began ticking.

The idea began in 1947 to warn humanity of the dangers of nuclear war.

Remember when we were expecting 2012 to be the end of the times? hahaha people and silly beliefs.

To be honest, I'm all for the development of suicidal doomsday cults resulting in the mass shipping of those people to some low populated poor country so they can suicide in peace.
It would get rid of useless people anyway.

@deg in before doom eternal become reality and we all become doom slayers.

I refuse to put my faith in a very obviously flawed clock.

These are actual scientists, not a doomsday cult or an ancient prophecy.

I hope you know how to hunt, make clothes from animal hides, etc, otherwise you won't last very long, lol.

Doesn't that tick them off that they now have to keep watch of it? Once the time is up, there won't be anymore seconds for them to take a break since no one will give them a hand, because they're already dead by now.

Guess that's not something minute to take no serious concern about.

Nuclear is just one possibility (but I believe that this won't happen), but the most obvious things that will kill us all are unknown diseases, resource scarcity, unknown collision of space object with Earth (probably a meteorite that was not detected by NASA), Gamma Ray Burst and probably a Coronal Mass Ejection which might set us back a few years, including wiping out some percentage of important scientific research done by different countries, possible deaths caused by non-functional medical products and life-support technologies which have not been hardened against EMP/CME blasts. And most biggest threat would be pollution and climate change.
