|RFID may be used for location tracking|

|When I first wrote the Mark of the Beast article, I was contacted by several sincere Christians who were concerned that what they were reading was not entirely accurate. One person actually contacted VeriChip on my behalf, and asked them to read through my article and comment on whether the things written in it were factual or not. Of course the VeriChip representative said none of the claims were factual, but did not give details. And to be honest if I was a VeriChip representative, coming from a non-Christian background, I would probably say the article was ridiculous. One of the Christians that contacted me was concerned that I had stated the VeriChip could be tracked by Satellite, a claim which VeriChip themselves strictly deny. The tags are "passive", they say, and so cannot be tracked, despite tests showing an RFID chip can be read at over 70 feet away and the distance only being limited by the sensitivity of the scanner. Well it seems that as time progresses, more and more of what was written in the VeriChip article is coming out in the open. Electronics giant Siemens, is spearheading the development of an RFID system that can be used to track the whereabouts of a person or object within a wireless network, which of course can cover a whole city block. |
Quote: "Battery-powered RFID tags are placed on an asset and they communicate with at least three wireless access points inside the network to triangulate a location. Mr Birkl said: "The tags have a piece of software on them and they detect the signal strength of different access points. "This information is sent back to the server and it then models the movement of the tag depending on the shift in signal strength detected." For the system to work, the building or area that has been deployed with a wireless network needs to have been mapped and calibrated. To effectively locate objects a wireless access point is needed every 30 metres and Siemens said it was able to pinpoint assets to within a metre of their actual position.
Tracking isn't specifically mentioned in the Bible as being part of the Mark of the Beast system. The Bible only states that no man might buy or sell save he have the Mark, etc. As we have seen recently with the case of Madeline McCann, and in this article, the mainstream media is clearly making the case for having a global security system in place within the not-to-distant future. And it seems the only means of enforcing that is to have a medical implant in your right arm. Rather than clamping down on criminality, governments are telling their citizens that they can no longer guarantee their security, and in order to fit in to this brave new world we all must conform to their system. I wonder if it will only be a matter of time before the world is faced with the choice of having the Mark implanted, and if they do, will it be operated by a Lithium battery?
