Prophecy Sign: The coming future "Mark of the Beast" identification system
It's not a matter of 'if' but 'when' as to all people being required to be marked by an identification chip in order to be a citizen of good standing in the coming New World Order of things. It is no longer science fiction, but science fact and will happen according to bible prophecy.
It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name. Revelation 13:16-17 NIV
Is there a microchip implant in your future?
You can inject one under your skin and no one will ever notice. Using short-range radio frequency identification (RFID) signals, it can transmit your identity as you pass through a security checkpoint or walk into a football stadium. It can help you buy groceries at Wal-Mart. In a worst-case scenario – if you are kidnapped in a foreign country, for example – it could save your life.
Microchip implants like the ones pet owners use to track their dogs and cats could become commonplace in humans in the next decade. Experts are divided on whether they’re appropriate for people, but the implants could offer several advantages. For soldiers and journalists in war zones, an implant could be the difference between life and death. A tracker could also help law enforcement quickly locate a kidnapped child.
“In the long run, chip implants could make it less intrusive than some emerging ID systems which rely on physical biometrics (like your fingerprints or unique eye pattern),” says Alex Soojung-Kim Pang, author of the book “Distraction Addiction” and visiting scholar at Stanford's University’s Peace Innovation Lab.
Biometric authentication moves beyond science fiction
Biometric identification methods involve analyzing physiological and/or behavioral characteristics of the body, both classes of which would be presumably unique to an individual, and thus more reliable than traditional methods of verifying identity. These characteristics are then compared to information contained in a database linked to that person’s identity. Common to all biometric identification modalities is the need to choose a characteristic that is common to each individual, yet which has unique parameters. For example, having five fingers would itself not be a useful identifying feature, but the fact that fingerprints are not shared (even by identical twins) makes them a viable identification tool. Other physiological parameters include palm prints, facial recognition, iris and retinal recognition, hand, finger and wrist vein pattern recognition, electrocardiogram analysis and DNA. Behavioral characteristics include voice recognition, signature analysis, gait recognition and even keystroke dynamics.
