Hey bloggers, or whoever could be reading this blog at the moment, and this is another one of those random posts where I find myself attempting to post content on this blog whenever possible for some reason or another. And so this posting happens to be about RFID technology. What's up with that? And are you wondering what those letters even mean? Well, so am I. Does that internet bible dictionary Wikipedia have an entry for this word? And as far as I know those letters have something to do with security and access control. How do I know, because I came across some high tech plastic looking credit card with some high tech magnetic sensor that one waves like a magic wand in front of some other red light sensor that reads the credit card looking device to let you pass though some door. And I have seen many a people in the workplace, businesses and beyond, waving these magic wands in front of doors to get through them. And that RFID tag, smart card technology sort of scares me for some reason. So much that I thought to post that upc bar code image in the photo above, save no man that he may buy or sell except that he have the mark of the beast 666 thing image. And what do the letters RFID mean anyway? And so when one types in these letters on the computer, along comes the phrases "RFID bracelets, RFID tag, RFID chip, RFID reader, RFID scanner, RFID tracker etc; and big brother seems to be watching you with this high tech device of our times here on planet earth. And so this reminds me of conspiracy thoughts of the end of the world or something having to do with the mark of the beast again, the national id initiatives, globalism, the new world order, whatever that could mean in a whole another blog posting, freedom and restriction of travel, some scene out of that George Orwell 1984 totaliarian novel, whatever that phrase could mean also, that mark of the beast 666 thing again. And no one is free when others are oppressed. And what does this have to do with a No Police State?

Hi girl,

RFID stands for Radio Frequency Identification and it's a technology that's spreading fast in logistics applications--keeping track of goods as they travel from seller to buyer and through industrial manufacturing. It saves a lot of time and money: boxes don't need opening to make an inventory; theft is pretty much prevented, and so on.

Then there's the chip they put in the scruff of your cat or dog so it can be identified as properly vaccinated or returned to you if gone astray. That's RFID, too. That's the kind of RFID chip people are getting to pay for drinks and to identify them to a medical records application. The really funny thing is that there's no possible way this VeriChip could have any relation to the number 666, and still there's a whole army of conspiracy theorists that have decided that this chip is the Mark of the Beast.

I've written a blog post to try to debunk that myth, but it won't do any good; there are too many people who have staked their reputation on pushing it, as flawed as it is.

I've said this before on your blog, but for the case you didn't so it then, I'll ask you again: read my free e-book Walkabout: The History of a Brief Century for a banker's take on the End Times!
