This week seemed like a “WOW!” week for microchip-related news…things are really picking up there!
News story from KSTP out of Minneapolis/St. Paul regarding a River Falls, WI employer who is offering microchips to it’s employees: http://kstp.com/news/wisconsin-company-to-implant-microchips-in-employees-three-square-market/4549459/
I started my computer the other morning and saw the following poll on my homepage, which happens to be MSN (not because I believe MSN is real news but because I have not changed it). Because I’m me, and I think about these things, I had to look further.
Apparently, polls on this are big these days. Just a small sampling of screen shots I found, most quite recent:
From Corbett Report. Agreed that it is a PR stunt for public acceptance:
An interesting video from Richie from Boston (I like his You Tube channel, but that is not an endorsement for all of his beliefs):
Gonz and Basil from Canary Cry Radio:
I have a very Bible-centered view of this.
16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man, and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
Now…I don’t believe that the RFID chips in River Falls, WI are the mark of the beast. Nor do I want one anyhow. Even if I did not have my particular Biblical viewpoint, I would have great concern about privacy and how this could be used negatively down the road. However, it seems that this is a hot issue and is being pushed as a great option…and I do believe it most certainly is a precursor to said actual mark.
