View Full Version : The Mark of the Beast Chip Thread *Merged*
May 27th, 2007, 08:08 PM
Here is a link to an article by the maker of the Chip ... VeriChip Corporation boasting that 1 in 3 hospitals are now microchipping infants.
I dunno no, but before it is all said and done, I just betcha "No will be able to buy or sell without it" I heard that the machine that holds all of the data is nicknamed the "Beast" but I can't remember who told me that so I can't verify that claim.

Just in case it's not clear, they're not chipping infants, they use the chips in hospital bracelets and such, so there's an alarm if an infant is taken out of a nursery by someone unauthorized, and to match up parents and children. The chips are not being placed in children.

16And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
17And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

Thanks for clarifying that. I should have made my post a tad bit clearer.

I came across this when I was researching RFID chips. For the Amish, the government is in a sense controlling when they can go anywhere because they get there with there horses. I'm not amish, but this is just crazy. All this new government control with the REAL ID act, ect. This is just the beginning... I wonder when they will make us microchip our pets, then ourselves. I hope it doesn't get to that anytime soon, but it seems like all of these new acts (RFID, RealID) just came out of the blue without anyone really paying attention to the impact or the general public being informed of the impact on our lives and giving a chance to give input and discussion beforehand.
RFID chipping of animals is a technology that is 'voluntary' on the national level, but state-by-state is mandatory. Few, or no, exemptions are being given to the Amish small farmers, nor to any small farmers, for any reason. However, penalties for non-compliance are so high that it will soon drive these farmers out of business.
About Amish Horses...
For the Amish, it is even worse. Rather than use motor vehicles for transportation, the Amish use horses. They use horses for their buggies, and they use draft horses for their farming. They borrow and lend their horses to their neighbors as need demands. States are requiring soon, however, that ALL livestock, including horses, be chipped with RFID.
Permits for Every Move
Permits are required by the states when animals are moved. The extent of the information required by these permits is, as yet, unclear. What is clear, however, is that the states expect that other animals that come into contact with the permitted animal be identified as well.
Equivalence for Us
This is as if the government were to require of us permits for every move we make with our cars. If we had to apply for a permit to go to the grocery, for example, and once there, document each and every other vehicle we came into contact with on the way, while we were there, and on the way back, you begin to see the challenge this poses for the Amish.
Further, if we had to apply for the permit days, weeks, or months in advance of the movement, and plan which vehicles we would be near to, you can see how bad this can get.

I'm not amish, but this is just crazy. :doh
Obviously I'm using a computer....

:lol2 that was funny :) Not funny about this chip and the poor Amish folk though. They do all they can to keep separate from the world, then the world comes in and takes over! :gaah

Materialism is invading the souls of many.

And you get stiff penalties for non-compliance. People just trying live there lives simply and not bothering anyone - then this. With all the materialism and government getting there hands into everything now-a-days, I kinda admire the amish way of life. I don't want to convert or anything, just admire the simple lifestyle and how they are self sufficient. Now the government is even ruining that. When will it stop.

It looks like the government won't let the amish buy or sell without there permission, since they have to get permission to go to the store. I can see why the amish would think of this as the "mark of the beast".
