Beginning of the End?

Filed under
Sci/Tech

"Scientists have embarked on a massive project to "barcode" every species of life on earth to create what would be a modern-day Noah's Ark to aid research." Alarmists will say this is the beginning of 'being marked'. Some folks think this is what The Bible refers to when it says those "with a mark on their head or hands". Will panic ensue? Will protests abound? My interpretation of the Bible passage is merely our works/actions and thoughts/heart. However, we still need to fear Big Brother. He is definitely coming! Here's the full story on the barcoding of animals.

The Mark

I think identify theft is going to get so bad that there is going to be some kind of volunteer chip implant process started. Wave your hand over the scanner and your are good to go. People that refuse the chip will find it harder and harder to conduct bank transactions or buy goods. The beast will actually be the computer network storing the data.

re: The Mark

Shudder to think. Hopefully I will have moved on to the great compiling ground in the sky by then.
