The Mark of the Beast?

It has been over a year since I first posted an article on the first-ever computer ID chip that could be embedded beneath a person's skin. The article has an actual picture of the chip that is implanted under a person's skin. The company that produces the chip has announced plans to develop a service that would allow consumers to pay for merchandise using these microchips implanted under their skin.

However, Applied Digital has attracted scorn from some fundamentalist Christians who believe that VeriChip is the fabled "mark of the beast" of biblical lore. According to the book of Revelation, Satan will someday force people to "receive a mark" on their hands or foreheads in order to buy or sell. If this technology interests you, I'd recommend reviewing an earlier article I posted on the topic.
