No, I'd say we live in very moronic times. Not that much has changed since the dawn of human civilization.

What? No glow-in-the-dark barcode tattoos?
Damn! I was so looking forward to getting mine.
It's a shame there aren't anymore paranoid delusional people like D4rk Kn1ght walking around. My tin foil stocks would go through the roof.

Well, if you won't be able to buy or sell anything without having the chip, then it's probably a good thing you are going to kill the man who approaches you with it. Then you will get thrown in jail and they will just give you your food, clothing, and shelter. \"Cause without that chip, yer gonna be naked, starving, and homeless.

\"The devil has a company, and its name...... Its name is...
The devil is an imaginary being.
\"radi ID my behind - this is where i will draw a line in the sand, and say loud and clear.\"
Yeah, yeah, yeah. Bluster all you want. Draw your line in the sand as the rest of the world rushes past you.
\"Come near me with the chip and you will die.\"
Mighty bold talk for a powerless, nerdy, little twerp writing on his mommy's computer.
\"That mark, is the mark of the beast, and with it you are nothing more than a numberd piece of cattle.\"
As \"the beast\" is a fiction, the verichip cannot be the mark of \"the beast.\"
I will always be more than a \"numberd piece of cattle.\" Too bad about you though.
\"Times coming when you won't be able to buy or sell without one...\"
Maybe, maybe not. I think it unlikely that credit cards, debit cards, checks and cash will become obsolete very quickly.
\"we live in very interesting times.\"
True, but not because you any point YOU'VE raised.

\"Draw your line in the sand as the rest of the world rushes past you.\"
Papabear, that's an awesome line. The mental image is great!
That said, while this end times stuff is obviously a load of shite, I value my privacy and do feel some pangs of unease - then again, the average human being would be a damn fool if he didn't at least consider the possible outcomes of disruptive technology. Well, as many have said before me and it's a good rule of thumb, lets just wait and see what happens!

the verichip fundies scream about: i bet you theyre funded by christians! or atheists that like to mess with peoples minds, at any rate the *chip* is just another scare tactic marketed by fearful christian nuts.
Oh and youre already cattle, more accurately a christian sheep ready for slaughter.

I've been wondering about this for a while now -- why are fundies so keen on allowing invasion of privacy in their blind support of the president's \"war on terror\" UNLESS the invasion of privacy looks similar to the mark of the beast?

Nice point, Gadren. Letter of the law before the spirit, as per usual with the kind of mentality we're dealing with here.
8/27/2006 4:45:42 PM
\"Come near me with the chip and you will die.\"
Yeah those olestra chips give me the shits.
No, they didn't say 'mark of the beast', they said there will be sequel called, \"More Huckabees\". Do try to pay attention.
The mark of the beast is supposed to be an identical identifying mark; so will everyone have the exact same number? Cause that would kind of defeat the purpose of an indentifying system, yes?
8/28/2006 7:49:05 AM
So I guess pets have been satan's minions for years then.

[The beast] causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads.
But Snopes sez:
The recommended implantation location for biochips is between the shoulderblades, towards the back of the upper arm
Hmm... which is right: The raving lunatic, or the semi-authoritative urban legend resource?
9/27/2006 4:03:00 PM
Wouldn't it be better to complain about things that are happening now rather then worrying obout things that havn't come to pass and by all likely hood never will. Besides, wouldn't it be easier just to tatoo out SS# on our foreheads?
12/8/2006 6:22:37 PM
"you won't be able to buy or sell without one..."
OOH! I KNOW!
THE EURO! A CHECKBOOK!
A CREDIT CARD!!!

Conspiracies are one thing, Biblical Prophecy Conspiracies are a whole bag of crazy, tied with stupid chains and locked in the dementia barrel.
no one wants to or has any plans to put a chip in you.

Tin-foil hat on a little too snug? Alex Jones is hardly an authority on anything. "you are nothing more than a numberd piece of cattle." Nor is Derry Brownfield. Both are just paranoid kooks who see evil New World Order/UN plots everywhere to take away their guns. Repeat after me: There is no New World Order. There is No Mark of the Beast. RFID is as dangerous as UPC symbols, something else the uneducated and the paranoid (redundant) thought was the End of the World a few years back, that turned out harmless.
