There is a whole lot of angst going on with regards to the following video and the “mark of the beast.”

Except that isn’t how this works. No one accepts any sort of computer chip in their hand or any of that kind of nonsense. I had to do the same sort of thing when I took my licensing exam to become an RN. The device has a camera inside of it that takes an infrared picture of the blood vessels in your palm.

Due to anatomical variation, the blood vessels in a person’s hand are unique to each individual: no two people’s vessels are alike. Even people with identical DNA have unique features, such as fingerprints and blood vessel patterns. In this case, customers of Whole Foods create an account, where they associate a credit card with the image of the blood vessels in their hand. This allows them to show their hand to the scanner, which then matches the photo to their account and charges the credit card on file.

It’s no different than a fingerprint reader or facial recognition, except the blood vessels in your hand are more difficult to spoof than a fingerprint reader or facial recognition. This isn’t any sort of “mark of the beast” or anything like that. This is a file kept of attributes that you are born with.

Now one could argue that you don’t want a business having a file on your personally identifying attributes, and I could certainly understand that, and I am not sure that I would be willing to do this, but I just don’t see it as ushering in the apocalypse.

In fairness, people are getting themselves implanted with RFID chips. This was the first hit on a DDG search, for instance:

And the typical place seems to be between thumb and index finger.

So, you’re right; but given the placement I see how someone could get palm-reader technology confused with reading someone who’s chipped.

    Vets have been chipping dogs for at least fifteen years; the one my Dad got from the pound in 2008 was chipped. Its previous owners apparently didn’t want to take it when they moved, so they just drove off and left it.

    I remember at least one campaign for “chip your children”, which was supposed to deter child molesters or something. So the idea has been around for a while.

I believe the same holds true for the retina. Each is unique as are so many parts of humans.

I can’t stand it when some people tell us we are all alike. I also can’t abide by the notion that men and women are essentially the same. All these ideas are garbage. We are all individuals — in spite of the progressive Marxists insisting the opposite, and there are two different sexes.

It’s getting old listening to these people.

Yeah…with the sheer amount of personal data that gets compromised every year, I’m not letting someone have a “fingerprint” of any of my biometric data.

Remember when fingerprint scanners came out and everyone thought they were the bees knees….and then a few months later some people figured out they could “lift” your fingerprint with gelatin powder and trick the scanner?

Faking hands with veins and arteries will probably be more difficult if the systems are able to detect things like the electrical field generated by your body and maybe the “pulse” of blood going through the arteries…but give it a year or two and it’ll happen.

I hope it works better than a fingerprint reader. Neither the feds TWIC card application reader or the Texas CCW reader could see my finger prints, both had to get a supervisors permission to use what little they could record. As a side note, the TWIC office was staffed entirely by Spanish speaking people, only a few could talk to me in English.

So you don’t believe in angiogenesis?

There is an implantable chip available in Europe now, coming soon to a mall kiosk near you.

    Divemedic · August 7, 2023 at 12:55 pm

    Angiogenesis occurs in response to all sorts of things, including blocked cardiac arteries (called collateral circulation), cancer, and other events. It doesn’t typically occur in the hands in large enough vessels to affect the palm readers we are looking at here.

    I also didn’t say that no one was implanting RFID chips. I said that RFID is not what the above video was showing.

This particular tech isn’t mark of the beast. The mark, in the present case, is a pre-existing unique physical attribute, not something artificial added or injected into a person (RFID, etc.) That said, with biometric technology such as it is now, and the tendency of govt and corporations salivating over total control and oppression, I no longer think the actual mark of the beast necessarily needs to take the form of a physically applied synthetic addition to ones body. Practically speaking, if retinal/blood vessel scans (or other such tech yet to come) become compulsory to transact any business of buying and selling the necessities of life, then they effectively become the mark of the beast.

All that said, there are two fundamental problems with this sort of tech. First is that it places more personally identifiable information that can (will) be misused at some point, into the hands of corporations and government (which are “this close” to being one and the same already).
The second is that the rollout of this kind of thing as a “convenience feature” further normalizes the eventuality of taking the mark of the beast, as it tears down resistance to loss of privacy and popularizes the idea of being marked in small, incremental steps. “And it’s sooo conveeenient”, they’ll say.

Of course, after living through the COVID era and witnessing the appalling weakness and stupidity of humanity at large, I have exactly zero confidence that those who willingly submitted to retard muzzles and shit shots will not capitulate in exactly the same manner when faced with a mandate to receive the mark of the beast. So I guess my position really boils down to something I say constantly now: “fuck ’em”.

I no longer have the time or inclination to try and save stupid assholes from themselves. I’m tired, and no longer care. The way COVID was reacted to was enough to convince me that most of humanity is a write-off. I’m at the point of accepting we actually need a mass die off to cleanse over a century of dysgenic garbage that has diluted humans into fearful, moronic and dysfunctional pussies. A properly working civilization will never be re-established with the detritus now bogging us down. All the better if most of the drones self deliver by one means or another. Based on trends already evident, I believe the whole thing folds in on itself, and humanity gets knocked back to a much earlier and less advanced stage of existence, in heavily reduced numbers. Something like the dark ages, but considerably worse, given how much further this iteration of society has to fall.

    EN2 SS · August 7, 2023 at 3:31 pm

    I agree, Big Ruckus;

    The main passage in the Bible that mentions the “mark of the beast” is Revelation 13:15-18. Other references can be found in Revelation 14:9, 11, 15:2, 16:2, 19:20, and 20:4. This mark acts as a seal for the followers of Antichrist and the false prophet (the spokesperson for the Antichrist). The false prophet (the second beast) is the one who causes people to take this mark. The mark is literally placed in the hand or forehead and is not simply a card someone carries.

Big Ruckus D · August 7, 2023 at 5:52 pm

Indeed. This could take the form of something as mundane as a tattoo, or with current tech, RFID or similar implants. I, however, tend to think the mark will be something readily visible (like a tattoo) as the sick fucks who seek to control every aspect of human behavior want the mark to be something with the undeniable connotation of owning humans as commoditized livestock. That is a central point of what they want to do, so don’t discount the importance of that detail.

Part of the “thrill” of subjugating the weak and otherwise compliant is the ability to force their participation in the debasement and defiling of their body, mind and soul. Hitler had his yellow juden star patches in Nazi Germany, Pol Pot killed those with eyeglasses, as they were deemed the intellectual class at the root of all evil, and those committing the crime this time around will accept no less of a visible marker with which to insult to those they want to torture and kill for pleasure.

Since we already know the majority of humanity is all too willing to agree to their subjugation and physical/psychological torture – a demonstrated fact certainly, post COVID – it is clear enough the uptake of the mark will be widespread. Scripture says as much.

I’ll undoubtedly be disappointed and horrified many times over by learning those I care about have bowed to their masters demands, just as I was when they masked and took shit shots, despite all solid evidence that they were fucking themselves by so doing. But I have arrived at the incontrovertible conclusion that so many will act stupidly, and sacrifice themselves in the process. I no longer have the inclination to argue with those who don’t just get it. COVID was the proof of concept operation writ large, and having witnessed it in all it’s fullsome and enraging detail, I now know what to expect, and have simply made my peace with it. There is clearly nothing I can say or do to get the minds of people who are true believers “right”. Any further attempt at doing so is analogous to dick-punching myself repeatedly. That’s stupid, so I won’t do it. If God wants them saved, let him cast his divine inspiration upon them, otherwise into the pit they all go. Am I a callous bastard? Hell yes I am. How could anyone expect otherwise, after the events of the last few years?

So what happens if you hands are dirty, scarred up, etc.? There have been plenty of times I’ve broke a finger or two and just toughed it out, hand swole up and angry. Or cut my hand and wore a bandage for days. Can’t see how this would be very reliable. As with others, I’ve had fingerprint readers malfuntion repeatedly.

Also, the debit card scanners sometimes can barely read my card after being in service for a while. Many times I have to try 3 or 4 times to get the card to work, and it’s not the card – it’s the scanner. If there’s that much issue with a card/chip reader, how the hell will a commercial palm reader last more than a week in a grocery store?

Landroll · August 8, 2023 at 12:13 pm

That’ll work until an industrial accident or other injury screws up the circulation in the hand.

    Divemedic · August 8, 2023 at 12:44 pm

    Then you go in with your ID and have your hand rescanned. It isn’t rocket science.
