DIGITAL ANGEL TECHNOLOGY - AN ANSWER TO OUR WORLD PROBLEMS
The United States Department of Agriculture is determined that every calf born in the United Sttes is to get a "CHIP" implanted under its skin so the animal can be traced from its place of birth, through sale barns, feedlots and the slaughter house.
I wrote in the Chronicle back in April 2000 that the Digital Angel had been developed by a company called Applied Digital Solutions. This thing called a microchip is a tiny, radio frequency device already being used to find lost pets, and to track fish and wildlife. While we think this is something recently invented, this technology has been around for over 30 years.
Betty Freauf writing for NewsWithViews.com wrote: "in the 1970's Sweden was stunned to hear that microchips were being implanted into hospital patients without their knowledge as part of a mind control experiment. Through numerous publications, we've been gradually desensitized to accept this new technology. An April 2, 2002 AP release stated that a young man with medical problems will be volunteering to have a chip planted under his skin to help him in emergencies."
In 1999 the August edition of TIME MAGAZINE carried a story about how the University of Virginia Hospital planned to begin micro-chipping all newborns in their belly buttons to prevent baby snatching.
These implanted devices will be monitored by a satellite system called Global Positioning System. Every little kid will now be safe from kidnappers. The Weekly Reader that goes out to grade schools throughout our nation recently conducted a poll of fourth graders asking, "Would you have a VeriChip implanted in your body?" Over 2000 kids voted -- 85% YES and only 15% voting NO.
When I first wrote about the Digital Angel many Christians who have read the "back of the Book" screamed: "IT'S THE MARK OF THE BEAST." We will have no privacy or security now that we have a government surveillance system that can track our every move.
David Hughes represented a consulting firm that helped Applied Digital in its discussions with the FDA, stated, "This new ship will bear only an identification number." However that ID number can be cross referenced with other databases to detail information concerning every aspect of your life, including medical records, vehicles owned, names, addresses and phone numbers of family members, credit ratings, bank security numbers and the list is never ending.
Once the Department of Agriculture makes regulations (not laws passed by Congress - just bureaucratic regulations) that all livestock must be identified by a Radio Frequency Identification System, that guarantees the safety of our food, is there any reason that the Department of Justice won't make similar regulations requiring all humans to likewise be implanted to guarantee the security of our nation?
