Not Your Maker's Mark

by baldilocks

I like how this story reads — as if we haven’t read it before.

You walk into a gro­cery store and pick up eggs. No smart­phone? No prob­lem. You swipe your hand across a reader, and the amount is deducted from your bank account.

If that sounds far-​fetched, you obvi­ously haven’t been to Swe­den recently, where thou­sands of peo­ple have report­edly had chips implanted in their bodies.

A com­pany called Bio­hax has already “installed” around 4,000 chips in cus­tomers, inserted just below the thumb. They can use the implant to open secure doors, pay for tick­ets, and share emer­gency infor­ma­tion with med­ical per­son­nel. The chip is about the size of a Tylenol pill, and the pro­ce­dure — which costs $180 — is sim­i­lar to get­ting a tetanus shot.

Other good rea­sons for get­ting the mark … er … chip are listed. And they are really good rea­sons. The logic is sound. And with the uproar — real and ginned up — about voter fraud in 2016 and some on this very day, add vot­ing to the list of mun­dane tasks that can be made sim­pler and “error-​free” by hav­ing every piece of infor­ma­tion about one’s iden­tity inserted into one’s body.

Leav­ing aside the bib­li­cal prophecy about the Mark of the Beast, how alarm­ing is this? One won­ders what will be the out­come of a mal­func­tion­ing chip. How will a person’s body — and mind — react to that?

You know, of course, some day, not very far off, this chip will be manda­tory for every­one, right?

Bring­ing back Bible prophecy into the mix, there will be those who refuse to get the chip for what­ever rea­son. They will be left out of the world economy.

The tile of the piece is “Are You Ready for Chip Implant?” The true ques­tion, how­ever, is: are you ready to do what it takes to sur­vive with­out it?

You walk into a grocery store and pick up eggs. No smartphone? No problem. You swipe your hand across a reader, and the amount is deducted from your bank account.

If that sounds far-fetched, you obviously haven’t been to Sweden recently, where thousands of people have reportedly had chips implanted in their bodies.

A company called Biohax has already “installed” around 4,000 chips in customers, inserted just below the thumb. They can use the implant to open secure doors, pay for tickets, and share emergency information with medical personnel. The chip is about the size of a Tylenol pill, and the procedure — which costs $180 — is similar to getting a tetanus shot.

Other good reasons for getting the mark … er … chip are listed. And they are really good reasons. The logic is sound. And with the uproar — real and ginned up — about voter fraud in 2016 and some on this very day, add voting to the list of mundane tasks that can be made simpler and “error-free” by having every piece of information about one’s identity inserted into one’s body.

Leaving aside the biblical prophecy about the Mark of the Beast, how alarming is this? One wonders what will be the outcome of a malfunctioning chip. How will a person’s body — and mind — react to that?

You know, of course, some day, not very far off, this chip will be mandatory for everyone, right?

Bringing back Bible prophecy into the mix, there will be those who refuse to get the chip for whatever reason. They will be left out of the world economy.

The tile of the piece is “Are You Ready for Chip Implant?” The true question, however, is: are you ready to do what it takes to survive without it?
