Who cares? They are a leftist propaganda organisation, and their so-called “clock” simply reflects their biased idiocy.

This thing is such a silly gimmick that it is a surprise why anyone takes it seriously.

Moving the clock to NYC is more concerning.

They better forget about the hour and minute hand and just use the second hand when Iran daploys the bomb. It will always be at 11:59 and some small number of seconds.

Usually, it has a limit of 11:45PM as the “safest” time. I say they’ll move it back all the way to 12 noon for Zero’s Peace Prize.

In that case the doomsday clock struck 12 1/20/09.

Now we are post-apocalypse.

I agree, hence my question. Do you think they will move it back since we have the Messiah in charge?

Sarah Palin has joined FoxNews. The libs will move it to microseconds from oblivion.

They should put the debt clock front and center. Maybe that would wake up some idiots who voted for the messiah.

Yeah, the History Channel should be doing a “Life After Obama” series like they did their “Life After People” series. But then again most disasters probably all look the same. ;-)

I think that the "Doomsday Clock" should be changed to implementation of "Sharia Law" instead of nuclear blast. The leaders of our country are taking us there at warp speed because of their disordered minds.

Definitely forward because once Iran gets the bomb Western civilizAtion will be in a danger we have never experienced before.

Even the Russians were not crazy enough to launch a nuke on the U.S.The mullas in Iran don’t care Nd either they will use them directly or they’ll give them to their terrorist clients.

We will loose a city as a result.

So far their timepiece has been faulty.

We were supposed to be dead a long time ago.

Just read their blurb.

I remember them as the AntiNukeKooks.

But now they are big on 'Climate Change'.

I'm surprised they aren't saying we're doomed without ObamaCare, TARP2, and Gun Control!

This was my thought as well. But, I do not think that these minutemovers think Iran as a threat. Between Obama and the Climate Change crap in Copenhagen...I think they will move it back by 1 or 2 minutes. A feely good type of move and ‘can't we all just get along’ statement.

If the clock was accurate, it should have spun like a fan when B-HO got elected.
