    Post Religious concerns bout chip implant

    I started a new thread on this topic cause Conf1rm3d_k1ll did have a good point:

    How did such a good thread end up going all religous? The book of revelations? Please.....
    I also wanted to add part of an article that I found at CNN. You can view the original story here.

    Religious concerns

    The chip has drawn attention from several religious groups.

    Theologian and author Terry Cook said he worries the identification chip could be the "mark of the beast," an identifying mark that all people will be forced to wear just before the end times, according to the Bible.


    Both privacy advocates and religious groups have voiced concerns.
    Applied Digital has consulted theologians and appeared on the religious television program the "700 Club" to assure viewers the chip didn't fit the biblical description of the mark because it is under the skin and hidden from view.

    Even with the privacy and religious concerns, some are eager to use the product.
    - (What's wrong with those people?)

    Jeff Jacobs in Coral Springs, Florida, has contacted the company in hopes of becoming the first person to purchase the chip.

    Jacobs suffers from a number of serious allergies and wants to make sure medical personnel can diagnose him.

    "They would know who to contact, they would know what medications I'm on, and it's quite a few," he said. "They would know what I'm allergic to, what kind of operations I've had and where there might be problems."

    The device has no power supply, rather it contains a millimeter-long magnetic coil that is activated when a scanning device is run across the skin above it. A tiny transmitter on the chip sends out the data.

    "It's a sad time ... when people have to wonder whether it's safe in their own country," Bolton said.

    Here's another picture of what the bug looks like:

    hello RA. I don't want any chip in me for any reason. It's invasive.

    btw - I'm not religious anyway.

    Greetz gold eagle. I wouldn't want that damn bug in me either. It's invasive and an abuse of authority if you're religous or not. It's a big concern for everyone that wants to maintain their privacy in day to day life.. Especially since the UN wants to make it a global form of ID. If the law is passed that allowes them to use this chip you can say good bye to your privacy.

    I hoped to God we're never stuck with a chip, like some stupid animal with a tracking collar.

    I'd want the chip in my hand because then I could amputate, and keep the hand alive in a jar, on a circular conveyer belt so it looks like I'm constantly moving around in a circle...
    Why am I still here?

    That's pretty morbid Alcatraz. Better to cut it out and stick it on a bus or train car.

    Have these people ever heard of DOG TAGS or maybe a BRACELET describing their medical conditions and blood type? Dear lord, I mean, seriously... First, the privacy aspect. Secondly, you can't take it off even if you really wanted to without considerable pain, thirdly, I am completely sure that dog-tags or a metal bracelet, being tried-and-true technology, will have less downtime than these chips, be more convenient to clean, change, see, etc, and will not have the same privacy issues.

    Seriously, the guy should get in touch with reality, how many people are likely to have a handy-dandy Medic-Laptop 5000 with firewire chip-reading peripherals!? On the flipside, far-to-the-nth-power more people know how to read!

    EDIT/ADD
    RA, I can't seem to view that attachment bug_tracker.jpg. I get a permission denied site error.

    I can see where this is leading, maybe a good makeings of a movie but as we all know the goverment people are sneeky and you may never know you might get the chip installed in your next trip to the hospital or this could be implemented into the armed forces. you see anyone who joins the military have given up there rights to everything, we are nolonger our own person the gov owns you. did you know if you get a sun burn in the military can lead to extream punishment. but besides that you could never know if you get the chip and this case senerio has been proven time and time again. Look at viruses made by the goverment and tested in different cities. So be causes to who your local doc is. Once we get this chip in us we will nolonger be free just another prisoner in our own country size cell.


    We are all lab rats in a big maze.

    Terr I get the same error. The bracelet thing? Yes. Better and already in place. Besides, RA said the UN wanted to push this stupid thing. The UN personnel already have bracelets and watches that are sat tracked so why the need for the implant? It can only be for control.

    Hrm.. I clicked the link and got the same message. Try to right click and go to 'Save as..' That should let you download it. With out a power source, it's gonna make it that much harder to detect the bug. It's already gonna be a pain in the ass cause it's only a bit larger than a grain of rice.. but if they ever put on in my, I'll find the !@#$@# and properly dispose of it. I dunno, personally if I had a medical condition, I wouldn't mind wearing the bracelet. There's no telling what other information they can find out about you by scanning you for 'medical' purposes.
