An Ohio company has embedded silicon chips in two of its employees - the first known case in which US workers have been â€śtaggedâ€ť electronically as a way of identifying them.
CityWatcher.com, a private video surveillance company, said it was testing the technology as a way of controlling access to a room where it holds security video footage for government agencies and the police.
Embedding slivers of silicon in workers is likely to add to the controversy over RFID technology, widely seen as one of the next big growth industries.
RFID chips â€“ inexpensive radio transmitters that give off a unique identifying signal â€“ have been implanted in pets or attached to goods so they can be tracked in transit....
All of the technology of today has nothing to do with Revelation, the context of that book was written to the 1st century Christians. 666 is the number ascribed to Nero and the beast is Rome. People have been infected with dispentational presuppositions and mis-read the bible to say things that John never intended it to say.
"Revelation pretty clearly describes that the number of the beast will be a visible mark on the forehead or the hand that says "666."
Whether Revelation clearly describes the mark as "in" or "on" the forehead or the hand is dependent on what "Bible" you are reading.
Revelation 14:9 NIV - "...on the forehead or on the hand" NASB - "...on his forehead or on his hand" Mess - "...on forehead or hand" AMP - "...on his forehead or on his hand" NKJV - "...on his forehead or on his hand"
Revelation pretty clearly describes that the number of the beast will be a visible mark on the forehead or the hand that says "666."
I'd be afraid to extrapolate that into meaning a "digital chip that uniquely identifies you."
Also, RFID tags can be easily read and duplicated.
My bigger concern, and I'm really shocked this isn't making bigger headlines, is the fact that the RFID tag is encased in a glass capsule. What happens if the glass breaks? Why don't they use some other material?
