    just read a news bit about microchips for employees

    yep.....go to work
    open the door
    clock in
    buy stuff

    all by the chip embedded in your hand

    I made note in the title .....your forehead
    because it reminds me of scripture

    and dealing with the mark of the beast

    let's go for it!!!!!!!!

    (not me though....good old fashion money is nasty enough already)

    It’s a common reference in relation to this kind of technology but not one that is typically given with any kind of rationale, backing or conclusion. It typically strikes me as just a knee-jerk reaction to fear of technology people don’t really understand (which is natural but not necessarily positive). I think there can be a tendency for people to fall back on half-remembered scripture in this kind of situation, a kind of subconscious comfort blanket.

    At best it’s harmless, at worst it’s a distraction from the legitimate informed practical, moral and legal questions this kind of technology raises.

    This assumes you have knowledge of what the Mark of the Beast is. I doubt that, but don't take it personally. I doubt anyone does.

    It was Roman coins with the Emperor Nero's image on it. Parts of Revelation were written as angry poetry against the Roman Emperor. Such things - poetry railing against ruling powers - are common in the Bible, like with Isaiah 14.
    First Century Coin of Nero Found in Jerusalem — the "Mark of the Beast"?

    SILVER SPRING, Md., March 31, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is alerting consumers to Meridian Medical Technologies' voluntary recall of 13 lots of Mylan's EpiPen and EpiPen Jr (epinephrine injection) Auto-Injector products used for emergency treatment of severe allergic reactions. This recall is due to the potential that these devices may contain a defective part that may result in the devices' failure to activate. The recalled product was manufactured by Meridian Medical Technologies and distributed by Mylan Specialty.

    While the number of reported failures is small, EpiPen products that potentially contain a defective part are being recalled because of the potential for life-threatening risk if a severe allergic reaction goes untreated. Consumers should keep and use their current EpiPens if needed until they get a replacement. Consumers should contact Mylan at 800-796-9526 or [email protected] with any questions.
    At this time, the 13 lots identified – distributed between Dec. 17, 2015, and July 1, 2016 – are the only EpiPen lots impacted by the U.S. recall. Consumers who have EpiPens from lots that are not included in this recall, do not need to replace their EpiPen prior to its expiration date.

    I think that - in your hand and forehead - means to do evil (hand) and to think evil (forehead.)

    I don't think it has anything to do with implants.

    Clearly, ancient mythologists were talking about microchips.

    I'm all for chipping hard criminals. It would save time tracking them down when they commit a new crime, and would save money digging for proof, as we would have the chip locations and information.

    and heaven forbid ( as if heaven has anything to do with it)

    heaven forbid your chip is flagged or deactivated

    you can't get on a bus .....a train.....an airplane.....
    you can't use your cell phone
    you can't open the door of your house

    in China .....it's called 'untouchable'

    they do it without a chip

    but it's coming
