Hmm, passports already use RFid but who carries that around? As far as I know the RealID thing has been postponed so I don't really know.

Maybe it something the employees have to carry?

You even sure it's going to be used to track customers? Looks like it's mostly used to track goods and only a few places have used it on customers.

On another note...


RFID implant as the mark of the beast

A few critics, mostly conservative Evangelical Christians, believe that RFID tagging could represent the mark of the beast, which Revelation 13:16-17 says will be placed by the Antichrist in the right hands or foreheads of humans and necessary for commerce.
“ He forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead,

so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name.


—Revelation 13:16-17

Katherine Albrecht and Liz McIntyre, authors of Spychips: How Major Corporations and Government Plan to Track Your Every Move with RFID, wrote a new book on the subject.[74] John Conner, leader of an organization called "The Resistance of Christ" also believes there is a strong connection. Related subjects include eschatology (last things) and dispensationalism.[75][76][77] Rev. Irvin Baxter Jr's Website www.endtime.com provides an in depth video analysis on the topic titled "mark of the beast." Lol.

Walmart is putting those chips in some of their products. I don't know of any current Walmart ID that's RFID right now unless that's going to change. Are these cameras activated by RFID proximity?

Um, yes they will? Only people with IQs below 130 can't see this trend. Eventually you will need one to purchase anything, anywhere. But that kind of foresight is obviously beyond you at this point.

They've already put them in 15 newborn children as an experiment.

And they are already in passports.

Only a fool doesn't see that they are trying to put this into all forms of ID. And that eventually it or something similar will be required to buy anything.

RFIDs will be used in America with a new digital currency called the Amero. If you don't believe it exists wiki it. America is trying to move away from hard-currency and move completely digital. So they can cut you off from your funds completely if your wanted by the law or anything like that. The Amero will become the standard currency of Canada, United States, and Mexico. Their governments have already accepted it.

RFID scanners have been in Walmart for a long time, they use them on all their electronics and expensive products. It's the thing that makes the little beeper go off when you leave the store without paying.

RFID in people isn't much of a stretch though. The RealID will be coming pretty soon, I'd guess in the next presidential administration (regardless which of the two main parties people elect). Injecting it into living tissue though... that's probably going to be a little further into the future. I think it'll take at least 20 years and a lot of fearmongering to get people used to the idea.

PS- RFID is being put in not just passports, but a lot of state drivers licenses.

somewhat related, our company is doing electrical work for a new high school in town and they are installing rfid tracking devices and making the students wear bracelets. since when did high schools turn into penitentiaries? In fact some of the students are wearing orange shirts saying ' P.... High Penitentiary'

Should have just placed them on the dollar bills so that they could track currency and see money without searching for it to stop currency smuggling and find hidden money. That wouldn't be intrusive unless all the shops register the individual bills and who paid with them, but it could also be abused by criminals to see who is loaded and where they keep the money.

Also cards shouldn't be legal tender and it ruins the ability to track the actual money and spotting of counterfeit.

I hope the next EMP holocaust is nigh.

RFID implant as the mark of the beast

I remember back in the late `70's they [whacko religious groups] thought the scan bar [UPC code bar] was the mark of the beast.

Almost 30 years later, I've yet to see a person with a bar code on them that didn't want it tattooed on.

If it's open for interpretation, you can bet some religious group will be on it like white on rice, going "OMG its teh end of dayz!!!!".

Meidum IQ is 100 with a standard margin of 15, which means about 97.5% of people have IQs under 130, so what's your point when you say only people with IQs under 130 can't see the trend?

they are using it for inventory. But that is nothing new as there has almost always been this sorta thing.

Eventually it will be used to scan faster and make stealing harder.
