Biometrics and Bible Prophecy
Before we share the information on Biometrics, let us look at what the
Bible predicted almost 2000 years ago before any type of modern technology
was available. The Bible shares that Antichrist will have a "mark of the
beast" placed in the hand or in the forehead of his followers and
biometrics could very well play a part in it.
We Will Now Look Into Revelation, Chapter 13
Which Introduces Us to Antichrist.
Soon, an empire will arise, as did the Roman empire. It will have a
fierce ruler which will be directed by Satan himself. This leader is
known as Antichrist. Satan gives him his power, and he is marveled after
by mankind and they will fear him.
2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his
feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and
the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and
his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
4 And they worshipped the dragon [Satan] which gave
power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like
unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
As we sojourn along in the Future of biometrics mark of the beast quest,
we see that people will worship Satan who gives Antichrist power.
Antichrist will speak against God and he is given power for 3½
years (42 months based on the Hebrew 360 day year) He will make war with
the Saints during his 3½ year reign (Remember that is how long the
Christians are hidden.) and he has power over all mankind (except true
Christians) and they will all worship him in fear.
5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things
and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two
months. [3½ years]
6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to
blaspheme His name, and His tabernacle, and them that dwell in Heaven.
7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints,
and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and
tongues, and nations.
8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose
names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the
foundation of the world.
Yet again ... Here is evidence that there are Christians on earth during
the End Times.
Antichrist will make war with the Saints and overcome them.
How will Antichrist make war with the Saints and overcome them if there
are no Christians on earth as they were all raptured already? It is just
not true that all Christians are Raptured. If one is not convinced by now
that there are Christians on Earth during the End Times, they are choosing
not to believe, based on something other than God's Word, as He makes it
There are Christians on Earth during the End Times.
Let's get back to the Future of biometrics mark of the beast adventure,
shall we? Antichrist will have a false prophet with him. This Religious
figure will cause the world to worship the Beast (Antichrist) who had died
from a wound and was healed.
11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and
he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before
him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the
first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down
from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
This false prophet can do miracles as to deceive many, even bring fire
down from the sky as God did for Elijah.
2 Kings 1:12
And Elijah answered and said unto them, If I be a man of God, let fire
come down from heaven, and consume thee and thy fifty. And the fire of
God came down from heaven, and consumed him and his fifty.
This type of act will make many believe it is a true prophet and they will
This false prophet will cause mankind to create an image of the beast and
this image will be alive and be able to speak and cause those that do not
worship the image to be killed.
14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the
means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of
the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should
make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast,
that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that
as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
This is an important part of the Future of biometrics mark of the beast
study ... He will also make all of mankind receive a mark of the beast in
their right hand or in their forehead. Nobody will be able to buy or sell
without this mark of the beast.
The mark of the beast will somehow represent 666.
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
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.
Many think the "mark of the beast" will be an implant of a bar code under
the skin. Kind of like the one on all the products we now buy, where they
scan them at the checkout counter at your local grocery store. Many
believe that biometrics technology will be used.
So, in the End Times, when mankind goes to make a purchase of any sort,
from gasoline, paying bills to buying groceries for their family, they
will simply reveal the Mark of the beast and receive what they want.
However ... If you do not have the mark, I suppose that you will be
quickly escorted away to either accept the mark or be put to death.
And what of this "image" that can speak? Well, if you are viewing this web
page now, you are using an "image that can speak." The computer is quickly
becoming the new trend in communication. The computer may be used in the
construction of this image. There is no way to be sure until this image is
set up, so just be watchful.
The Future of biometrics mark of the beast warning is clear. We will now
be looking into the very strange world of Biometrics now in order to
understand a certain aspect of the Bible where we are warned of
Antichrist's deeds during his reign of terror. It is written that
Antichrist will perform certain deeds that will require technology to
perform, reach and control the entire earth.
In this study, we will look into ... Biometrics Technology & RFID Chips.
What is Biometrics?
You may have heard of it briefly on the news. You may have even
participated in it and not even known it. The definition: Biometrics -
Devices which confirm identification by measuring biological or behavioral
features. The most common biometric measure is fingerprints, but some
devices also identify based on a retinal or iris (eye) scan, face or
voice. Those who promote Biometrics promise that our identities would be
virtually impossible to steal, impersonate or misplace if we accept the
Wow !!! Sounds cool huh? I mean hey, are you tired of worrying about your
identity being stolen? Are you worried about the person looking over your
shoulder at the ATM or at the grocery store and seeing your password or
Pin #? What if you are mugged and your wallet or purse is taken. Any money
or credit cards you had could be used by the burglar and you are out of
luck. Yet, your fingerprint, eyes, face or even voice cannot be stolen.
(Yes ... For you sinister thinkers out there, they have created a way that
if your finger or eye are removed they would not work in a biometric
scanning device. So there you go.)
Need gas in your car ... Scan your hand or eye. Need money from the ATM
for a night out on the town ... Scan it for cash. Need groceries, cash
your check, open a bank account, anything to do with your money ... Scan
it. It is safe and you won't have to worry about thieves.
Face scanning has also emerged as one of the hottest biometric methods for
identifying people. The goal is to use unique body parts -- such as
fingerprints, eyes, face or hand patterns -- to help identity someone as
friend or suspected foe.
Beware the Future of biometrics technology.
Here is a quote
from Sgt. Greg Fox of the Identity Theft Task Force at the Sacramento County
Sheriff's Department in California
Some type of biometric is the only way we'll
be able to reliably identify anyone, you can take my name, but you can't take my
There are many today who are concerned that it gives way to any entity
being able to track down our every move, purchases and invading our right
to privacy. I mean, as they are placing these eye scanners and other
biometric reading devices in our surroundings "they" will be watching over
our every moves. It is occurring all over the world more so in other
countries such as the European Union than in America. The frightening
thing is that whoever has control over this massive people database will
be a very powerful person. So what's the big deal about Biometrics and
what does it have to do with End Times?
In the book of
Revelation, Chapter 13 it says that the false prophet who is the
Antichrist's right hand man, will cause all people great and small, rich
and poor, free and imprisoned to place a mark in their right hand or
forehead. No man might buy or sell unless he had this mark, or the name of
the beast (Antichrist) or the number of his name. Notice it says there are
3 ways to be able to buy or sell, a mark, the name of the beast or the
number of his name which is 666.
Many businesses were concerned about implementing this biometric
technology into their systems because they thought the public would be
paranoid that this was either "big brother" or the Antichrist at work.
However, over the past few years they have been running trials in their
stores and not only has the public welcomed this, their business sales
have increased by up to 12% in some cases. This shows them that the public
is accepting this technology in the name of convenience and security
against thieves. Years ago this technology was a thing of the future, a
pipe dream if you will. The future is now here and the dreams have indeed
Many stores such as Home Depot have offered cashier-less check out isles
where you purchase your goods by computer touch screen via cash, credit or
check/debit. This is the first step in giving way to the biometric system
which will make shopping much more expeditious.
This is a sign that shows us now that for the first time in history the
Biometrics technology that would allow the Antichrists mark of the beast
system is not only available, it is being used today and the number of
businesses and consumers that are being attracted to it are growing daily.
At this time there are school systems that are using the fingerprint
biometric technology system for lunches. Instead of kids getting daily
lunch money from their parents or from government assisted lunch programs
this money is put into an account with each child's information in this
They then scan the finger of each child for the database and when its time
for lunch they scan their finger to see what if any funds are in that
account for the child to eat that day. In fact many schools are using
these scanners on busses as well as using them to take roll in class.
Whether or not you think it is a good idea for convenience and safety for
the children being bullied for their lunch money doesn't seem to matter.
They are doing it anyway. When the Antichrist rises to power this system
must have been in use and accepted as the norm. This can be in worldwide
use in as little as a few years. Definitely a sign of the End Times and it
is worth looking into more and keeping an eye on in the near future.
Well it looks like science fiction is once again becoming a fact.
Implantable microchips under the skin so that you can buy drinks and food
at a club in Barcelona. Apparently the VeriChip corporation, which is
selling these implantable chips, has told the owner of the Baja Beach Club
in Barcelona that there was a plan to use the VeriChip as a global
implantable identity system.
The objective of this technology is to bring an ID system to a global
level that will destroy the need to carry ID documents and credit cards.
The VeriChip that we implant in the Baja will not only be for the Baja,
but is also useful for whatever other enterprise that makes use of this
Last April, Barcelona's Baja Beach Club began micro chipping its VIP
nightclub members, to let them into exclusive areas and clock up drinks
and food via a chip implant in the arm produced by VeriChip Corporation.
Here are a couple of scientists that can send emails by just thinking.
Within a decade, Mr. Grulke says, microchips will be common. Already two
scientists at Britain's Warwick University have chips embedded under their
skin that let them send emails just by thinking. The process is still
cumbersome, Mr. Grulke says, but by willing a cursor around a keyboard on
a computer screen with their mind, they can write and send emails. "It's
really the start of interfacing the chip with the nervous system," he said.
We need to beware that the implanting of a chip is already becoming the
hip thing to do and soon it will be the only thing to do. How easy will it
be for the Antichrist to step in and take over a global identity system
that already exists?
Biometrics Mark of the Beast Danger
The Future of Biometrics Technology and RFID
RFID stands for Radio Frequency Identification Devices also known as spy
chips. This is a tiny rice sized chip that is being used today in clothes,
billboards, vehicles, merchandise and very soon in drivers' licenses or ID
cards. This chip holds all private information of a consumer that can be
easily read by a RFID reader.
For instance, Wal-Mart stores are now using these chips for all their
suppliers to keep track of stock. By the end of 2005 they will be in most
all of the items that you purchase from their shelves. For example, a spy
chip is in the tag or may be even woven into the fabric of clothing that
you purchase. It is scanned at the checkout along with your payment be it
card, check or biometric such as fingerprint or eye scan. All of your info
from name to SS number, address and phone number as well as all other info
required to having a credit card, check or biometric buy and sell
procedure. Perhaps and most probably even your religious preference.
Any RFID reader is then able to read the info off of the spy chip in your
clothing and identify who you are as a citizen. If you happen to be pulled
over by the police and he reads the spy chip in your clothes or ID or even
in Texas in this very year the chip will be in your vehicle inspection
sticker on your windshield. Hopefully you haven't borrowed your friends or
roommates clothes that day or even their car because if it doesn't match
up with their info there may be a problem. A RFID reader will be likened
to a speed radar gun that the police use. You will not even have to be
pulled over for them to be able to read your spy chip and know who you are
with all of your personal info just from sitting on the side of the road
as you pass by.
All new vehicles being made now have this technology in them from the
factory. A new smartcard, the type privacy advocates fear because it
combines biometric data with radio tags, will soon be one of the most
common ID cards in Washington. Department of Homeland Security workers in
May 2005 will begin using the new ID card, called the DAC , to gain access
to secure areas, log on to government computers and even pay their Metro
As we continue our research into the Future of biometrics mark of the
beast concern ... Even billboards now are reading peoples radio stations
in their cars and they in turn are able to provide advertising that
matches the preferences of the drivers on the next billboards on the
highway as the driver passes by. If you have ever seen the movie Minority
Report you will see that when people were walking through the subways or
just strolling down the street or entering any building where these RFID
readers were stationed they would pick up this info from each passerby and
greet them by name with advertisements suited to the individual. This
seems far fetched but the biometrics technology is not only available but
being used at this very moment.
In Tokyo last year they began issuing school ID cards with spy chips so as
to tell the parents when their kids are out of school or if they did not
make it to school. In northern California parents are furious over the
schools mandatory rule of forcing all kids to wear a school ID with RFID
chips. If we avoid buying products with spy chips or if we do not renew
our inspection stickers or drivers licenses or ID cards we can avoid this
invasion of privacy right?
Not that easy. These RFID readers also alert when one does not have a
chip. If one does not have a chip which will soon be the norm for all to
have one, this person may be stopped and questioned as to why, under the
pretense that this individual is a terrorist or outlaw of some sorts, he
or she does not have a chip that displays their info.
Now what does this entire story have to do with the End Times? In the
Revelation 13:15 says that the false prophet has power to give life
unto the image of the beast that this image should both speak and cause
that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
Now this image of the beast whatever it may look like is given life. The
image which has an RFID reader or something very similar to it will have
the ability to tell if you had a spy chip or not. If not ... It would
alert the authorities under the beasts rule to detain you.
You will be given a choice to worship the beast or take his mark or you
will be killed. The point of this is that the technology is in place right
now and is in the plans to be used everywhere in all walks of life very
soon. Whether the Antichrist is in action behind these plans now or if he
will step in after its in place is yet to be seen. Either way it is
happening now as we speak. You may have seen them for yourself or just
heard about it from the news or elsewhere.
Whether you believe in Jesus Christ as your Savior or if you believe in
God, Allah, Buddha or you are an Atheist, the point is that these
prophecies from the Bible are taking place now. Whether you believe in the
Bible or not, the fact is that the Bible is scientifically regarded as a
real book written thousands of years ago. is it just a coincidence that
these strange prophecies are taking shape in our world today?
We need to stay aware and warn others so that we can all see what is
happening and hopefully not be taken by surprise when this world ruler the
Antichrist comes to power.
Biometrics Mark of the Beast Coming Soon
The Future of Biometrics Technology is Everywhere
There are biometric chips that have been made available for many years now
that can be injected into the skin even without the person being made
aware of it. There was a show on TV around 1998 about a single mother in
the UK who had a 19 year old daughter who was involved in a bad crowd. She
and her boyfriend would disappear for days doing drugs and other things.
This, of course, made her mother very concerned. The mother tricked her
daughter into going to the doctor for a flu shot under the disguise of
protecting her from illness.
The daughter agreed to go. Now the mother premeditated this visit with the
doctor and instead of a flu shot she was injected with a spy chip. The
company that the mother went to offered internet tracking of her daughter
at about $20.00 per tracking session. The mother got on the internet,
logged in and tracked her daughter via satellite down to the exact spot
and surprised her daughter with a visit. The daughter was shocked and
angered to hear how her mother had tricked her. Now this may sound like a
good story for protecting our children.
Yet it is very frightening to me how this can be done. Needless to say the
daughter had the chip removed and went about her business. The point I
think is that we are all born with free will. We must choose for ourselves
on what path that we choose. Imagine how easy it would be to do this to
anyone even now years later with the technology even more advanced.
Remember what we have discovered in the Future of biometrics mark of the
beast quest thus far ... The Antichrist will force all (including
Christians) to make a final choice one day in our near future. Immediate
death, if one refuses to accept his mark or worship him and/or his image
and be condemned to eternal life in Hell, with much fear, pain, weeping
and gnashing of teeth.
Revelation 14:9-11 says whosoever worships the beast and his image
and receives his mark in his forehead or hand shall be tormented with fire
and brimstone for ever and ever and they shall have no rest day or night.
This could very well be the technology in which the Antichrist uses to
track and control his subjects and even more ... As to seek out and track
those who do not take his mark or worship him or his image.
Biometric technology is definitely a controversial issue in many ways.
Points can be argued for and against it. I tell you the truth, I am not a
government conspiracy theorist nor a paranoid psychotic by any means. I am
certain that world governments are not even aware that they are preparing
the way for Antichrist's system. They probably imagine they are doing a
good service. The truth is ... There are higher principalities and powers
at work. Rulers of the darkness of this world, spiritual wickedness in
high places. Those of us who are Christians are at war with these spirits
not with mankind.
6:12 Watch and see.
Please read the Bible and see for yourself. It is best to read the book
... Don't wait for the movie. The most important thing of all is not to
fear what is happening and what is coming but to be prepared, faithful to
God's promises for those who believe and to endure the End Times.
Watch and Pray.
A new technology that could help authorities track missing children relies
on eyes instead of fingerprints. The Richland County Sheriff's Department
is one of the first in the nation to join the database, which stores a
digital image of a person's unique iris, the colored part of the eye
around the pupil. "It will probably take two or three years before we
start to have a significant impact because it will take that long to get
that many systems out there," O'Reily said.
At least 1,200 other law-enforcement offices have requested the machine,
Mullins said, adding that the goal is to have the entire country online in
three to five years. Children stand about a foot away from a camera that
takes a picture of the iris, which stretches in the first six months after
birth and leaves marks. After that, it doesn't change. Parents get a
driver's license-sized card that includes a picture and the iris scan.
Then parents can decide whether to release the child's information to the
national database or just keep the card. It takes about 15 seconds for the
iris to be photographed and about nine seconds to search the database for
Wow, isn't that convenient? I don't know about you but I do not trust them
saying that the parents will have the right to give the info to the
national database or to just keep their child's info on an ID card. I mean
if they are scanning the iris in the first place, you would think that the
information would be in the database anyway. It seems to me that they are
training our children to accept this national database and biometric
scanning as the norm. So that it will be just as normal for the kids to
participate in this type of beast technology as it is to take a test in
school or play in the schoolyard for recess.
Your Papers Please! National ID Cards Coming
The federal government is moving ahead with a blizzard of new
identification card proposals affecting military personnel, government
workers and even ordinary Americans renewing their driver's licenses. On
Tuesday, President Bush endorsed moves in Congress to tack federal
regulations for state-issued driver's licenses onto the bill authorizing
$81 billion in additional spending for the war in Iraq. In a letter to the
House-Senate conference committee now considering the legislation, the
administration said the so-called Real ID Act would strengthen procedures
under which states issue driver's licenses. The Real ID Act requires all
new driver's licenses to include digital photographs, anti-counterfeiting
features and "machine-readable" information verifying a person's identity.
Update to This Story
Real ID Act Passes in House, Heads to Senate
Senate Passes Real ID: National ID Card on its Way
It is just a matter of time before we all will be under the law to produce
our biometric info ID card to any government figure that asks us. Sounds a
lot like Nazi Germany doesn't it? Even more frightening is that an evil
ruler far more worse than Hitler ever was is coming to take advantage of
all this oppressive, freedom raping technology. Be on the lookout.
Air Travelers Stripped Bare With X-Ray Machine
The agency in charge of the nation's air security expects later this year
to begin using a controversial X-ray machine that will show airport
screeners a clear picture of what's under passengers' clothes - whether
weapons or just bare skin. Screeners plan to test the "backscatter"
machines at several U.S. airports, the Transportation Security
Administration (TSA) says. The refrigerator-sized machines are considered
a breakthrough in scanning technology but have been labeled "a virtual
strip search" by the American Civil Liberties Union.
Security workers using the machines can see through clothes and peer at
whatever may be hidden in undergarments, shirts or pants. The images also
paint a revealing picture of a person's nude body. The devices can
potentially be used to screen hundreds of millions of air travelers each
year, although TSA says more study is needed to determine how the devices
may be used at U.S. airports. The machines are already used by U.S.
Customs agents at 12 airports to screen passengers suspected of carrying
drugs. The ACLU says the scanners invade personal privacy.
"This leads directly to a surveillance society," says Barry Steinhardt,
who runs the group's technology program. But Homeland Security Secretary
Michael Chertoff told a Senate subcommittee last month that he wants to
employ the technology and doesn't want an "endless debate" over privacy
Yeah I bet he doesn't. Why would he want someone to debate his
idea for stripping us all naked of our privacy as well as private parts.
That is their goal. Not to keep us safe from terrorists but rob our
freedoms that so many people died so that we can have them. I am sure that
the Antichrist is smiling upon people like Chertoff. Not much longer now...
Cashless Society: Quick Credit Card Coming
As if swiping a card at the checkout counter weren't fast enough, credit
companies will soon let you buy goods by simply tapping a card, waving a
key fob or holding a cell phone next to the cash register. Visa,
MasterCard and American Express all are planning nationwide rollouts this
year of "contactless payment" programs. Anyone who has used a Speedpass
wand to buy gas at a Mobil or Exxon station already is familiar with
The pinky-sized Speedpass contains a radio frequency identification (RFID)
chip that transmits the user's credit and security information to a gas
pump. Credit card companies want to embed similar RFID technology in their
plastic cards, key fobs or other devices that many consumers always carry
with them, such as a cell phone or a handheld PDA computer.
MasterCard, the biggest proponent of contactless payment cards, has been
diligently signing up merchants for more than a year to participate in its
PayPass program, including select McDonald's, vendors at the stadiums of
the NFL's Baltimore Ravens and Seattle Seahawks, and most recently Regal
Entertainment Group movie theaters nationwide. MasterCard ran an extensive
consumer test of its contactless cards in Orlando two years ago and tested
specially equipped Nokia cell phones with consumers in Dallas.
Visa International, meanwhile, announced in February it had completed
development of its own contactless payment program. The world's biggest
credit card company has been mum on specifics, but has hinted it expects
to announce by this summer that one or more major national banks will
support chip-embedded Visa cards. It also has successfully introduced the
system, using both cards and cell phones, in Asia and other parts of the
Iris Scanning To Begin At Orlando International Airport
Orlando, Fla. -- Florida's busiest airport will begin using high-tech
iris-scanning technology to filter out possible terrorists and add an
additional layer of security, according to Local 6 News. People at Orlando
International Airport will have both irises scanned at special computers
to determine their identity. "This will be an additional layer of
information that is enrolled, which will be biometric information," OIA
director of security Brigitte Rivera Goersch said. "Employees irises will
be enrolled for the additional layer of security." The Airport Access
Control Pilot Program or AACPP is a first of its kind, according to the
report. A person would be required to stand in front of a special mirror
and have both eyes scanned. "It has to verify both irises, not just one
iris," Goersch. "Statistically it is very reliable.
Iris scanners -- the technology of iris scanning -- is considered one of
the most reliable biometric technologies." "You know just like we did with
the airplanes with the cockpit doors and air marshals and all of that kind
of stuff," federal security director Art Meinke said. It is just another
step to try to figure out what can we do better." Local 6 News reported
that the 90-day test could be expanded and eventually moved to airports
throughout the nation.
Although the following 2 stories aren't specifically biometrics mark of
the beast technology stories, we thought you would like to know just how
easy it is to find information about yourself or anyone else on the
internet for free. Also how our information is sold to companies by many
government as well as credit card entities. For instance when you fill out
a change of address card at the Post Office. That information is sold to
the highest bidder. Here are some excerpts from this story.
Your Identity, Open to All
A search for personal data on ZabaSearch.com -- one of the most
comprehensive personal-data search engines on the net -- tends to elicit
one of two reactions from first-timers: terror or curiosity. Which
reaction often depends on whether you are searching for someone else's
data, or your own. ZabaSearch queries return a wealth of info sometimes
dating back more than 10 years: residential addresses, phone numbers both
listed and unlisted, birth year, even satellite photos of people's homes.
ZabaSearch makes it easier than ever to find comprehensive personal
information on anyone. ZabaSearch may give away some data for free, but it
charges for additional information -- like background checks and criminal
history reports, which may or may not be accurate. Critics say ZabaSearch
is exploiting the lack of data privacy in America.
We unknowingly leak personal information in countless ways, the argument
goes, and neither the government nor private industry provides effective
ways for us to control how our digital identities are shared or sold. If
your information is already out there, the logic goes, at least now you'll
know about it.
Biometrics Mark of the Beast in the News
The Future of Biometrics Technology Growing Fast
Spying eyes are watching you with new technology
It's easy and affordable to be an amateur snoop
Robert Gortarez is no private eye. But with an $80 piece of software
intended to track what his son was doing on the Internet, the 36-year-old
real estate investor uncovered some information about what his wife -- now
his ex-wife -- was doing online as well. Gortarez isn't the only one.
Husbands and wives, moms and dads, even neighbors and friends increasingly
are succumbing to the temptation to snoop, thanks to a growing array of
inexpensive, easily accessible high-tech sleuthing tools once available
only to professional investigators. Move over, Big Brother.
Little Brother is squeezing in. From software that secretly monitors
computer activity to tiny hidden surveillance cameras and global
positioning system devices, spy tools that can track a person's location
now can be purchased in retail stores and on the Internet. And a growing
amount of free personal information is so easy to find online that many
Internet regulars don't think of it as spying. "You can bug people the way
spy agencies used to do 20 years ago -- really cheap now," says Howard
Rheingold, author of "Smart Mobs: The Next Social Revolution." "The
Orwellian vision was about state-sponsored surveillance. Now it's not just
the state, it's your nosy neighbor, your ex-spouse and people who want to
spam you." It's unclear how many Americans are using these new tools to
check up on one another, especially since most people don't exactly
broadcast it. But experts say citizen sleuthing is on the rise.
Computer Chip Gets Under Skin of Enthusiasts
Yahoo News - New York (Reuters)
Forgetting computer passwords is an everyday source of frustration, but a
solution may literally be at hand -- in the form of computer chip
implants. With a wave of his hand, Amal Graafstra, a 29-year-old
entrepreneur based in Vancouver, Canada, opens his front door. With
another, he logs onto his computer. Tiny radio frequency identification
(RFID) computer chips inserted into Graafstra's hands make it all
possible." I just don't want to be without access to the things that I
need to get access to. In the worst case scenario, if I'm in the alley
naked, I want to still be able to get in (my house)," Graafstra said in an
interview in New York, where he is promoting the technology. "RFID is for
me." The computer chips, which cost about $2, interact with a device
installed in computers and other electronics. The chips are activated when
they come within 3 inches of a so-called reader, which scans the data on
The "reader" devices are available for as little as $50. Information about
where to buy the chips and readers is available online at the "tagged"
forum, (https://tagged.kaos.gen.nz/) where enthusiasts of the technology
chat and share information. Graafstra said at least 20 of his tech-savvy
pals have RFID implants. "I can't feel it at all. It doesn't impede me. It
doesn't hurt at all. I almost can't tell it's there," agreed Jennifer
Tomblin, a 23-year-old marketing student and Graafstra's
girlfriend.'Abracadabra' Mikey Sklar, a 28-year-old Brooklyn resident,
said, "It does give you some sort of power of 'abracadabra,' of making
doors open and passwords enter just by a wave of your hand." The RFID chip
in Sklar's hand, which is smaller than a grain of rice and can last up to
100 years, was injected by a surgeon in Los Angeles.
Tattoo artists and veterinarians also could insert the chips into people,
he said. For years, veterinarians have been injecting similar chips into
pets so the animals can be returned to their owners if they are lost.
Graafstra was drawn to RFID tagging to make life easier in this
technological age, but Sklar said he was more intrigued by the
technology's potential in a broader sense. In the future, technological
advances will allow people to store, transmit and access encrypted
personal information in an increasing number of wireless ways, Sklar said.
Wary of privacy issues, Sklar said he is developing a fabric "shield" to
protect such chips from being read by strangers seeking to steal personal
information or identities.
One advantage of the RFID chip, Graafstra said, is that it cannot get lost
or stolen. And the chip can always be removed from a person's body. "It's
kind of a gadget thing, and it's not so impressive to have it on your key
chain as it is to have it in you," Sklar said. "But it's not for
everyone." Sklar's girlfriend, Wendy Tremayne, has yet to be convinced.
She said she probably would not inject the computer chip into her body
unless she thought it was a "necessity." "If it becomes more convenient, I
may," said the 38-year-old artist and yoga teacher. "(But) I'd rather have
an organic life."
Coincidence or Not?
Our biometrics mark of the beast search for Truth quest has revealed that
we need to beware of the future of biometrics technology advances and how
they may be used for the mark of the beast prophecy. One more thing ...
This biometrics mark of the beast study is probably a decade old or more
at the time that you are reading it making the biometrics technology
advances to date .... Unfathomable.
