Face with Dr. Manhattan Television Host: Ms. Black you have the first question

Ms. Black: Dr. Manhattan as you know, the doomsday clock is a symbolic clock face analogizing humankind’s proximity to extinction, midnight representing the threat of nuclear war. As of now it stands at four minutes to midnight — do you agree we are that close to annihilation?

Dr. Manhattan: My father was a watchmaker…he abandoned it when Einstein discovered that time is relative. I would only agree that a symbolic clock is as nourishing to the intellect as a photograph of oxygen to a drowning man.

Ms. Black: So you’re saying there is no danger?

Dr. Manhattan: Even in a world without nuclear weapons, there would still be danger.
