Could the 'Mark of the Beast' Be Just a Swipe Away?

Instead of keeping countless cards and pieces of information that verify your identification, soon there may be only one thing you need: yourself.
As identity theft has become the bane of consumers everywhere, technologies aimed at making transactions more secure are gaining ground. Such "biometric technologies" include iris scans, as well as those for fingerprints, palm, skin, voice and face patterns.

Cash or Plastic? How About Fingerprint?

Albertson's, the No. 2 supermarket chain, is one of hundreds of retailers testing biometric payment systems that let customers pay for purchases with a mere swipe of a finger.

This whole concept of a cashless society sounds good at times, but overall, it gives me the heeby-jeebies. I don't think my fingerprint will turn out to be the 'mark of the beast' - but I have no idea what that mark will indeed be. I only know that it's coming, and without it I'll not be able to buy or sell. Which means I'll most likely be hungry a lot, because I'm not taking that mark!

Peace, love and preparedness...

"He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name."
- Revelation 13:16-17
