We Will All Be Microchipped!
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.
Europe? Don't be silly! Surely we all know that it's president Saddam-Adolf Obamacare who is going to get us all 666-marked?Posted by Richard Bos in The Netherlands on Sun Jan 26, 2014 at 06:42 AM
I saw this on my FB feed, with some predictably stupid responses from those took it at face value. But then, that happens everyday with a range of 'news' stories in my feed.Posted by Mr R on Mon Jan 27, 2014 at 04:18 AM
