Scare stories about how governments are going to force us all to be "microchipped like dogs"
have been circulating for well over a decade. Mixed in with these stories have been Christian fundamentalist claims that implanted microchips are the "Mark of the Beast"
The latest scare story to surface is an article (written in broken English) recently posted on topinfopost.com
, claiming that "On May 2014, through Europe newborn children will be compelled to take in a subcutaneous RFID chip."
Nope. Ain't happening.
The photo accompanying the article actually shows a flexible "Biostamp" recently developed by the Massachusetts-based firm MC10. But don't worry. The fundamentalists are convinced that these "E-Tattoos" are also the Mark of the Beast
, and that those who wear them will receive the Wrath of God.
