Meet the 'Digital Angel' -- from Hell
'Twas Lord Byron who said it first, I believe: "'Tis strange but
true; for truth is always strange; Stranger than fiction."
In the 21st century, I'm certain we will find that truth is even
stranger than science fiction.
You had better sit down for this one, privacy fans. A company called
Applied Digital Solutions has what sounds to me like the final
solution. The NASDAQ-traded high-tech company is excited about its
acquisition of the patent rights to a miniature digital transceiver --
which it nicknamed "Digital Angel (R)." Personally, I think it
should be rated X -- or worse.
The product is billed as a versatile transceiver that can send and
receive data -- and which can be implanted in humans.
It can provide a tamper-proof means of identification for enhanced
business security, the company boasts. It can locate lost or missing
individuals, say the proud owners. It can track and locate valuable
property, they claim. It can monitor the medical conditions of at-
risk patients. And it can slice, dice and destroy the last vestiges
of personal privacy in an increasingly impersonal world.
The implantable transceiver's signals can be tracked continuously by
global positioning satellites. When implanted in the body, the device
is powered electromagnetically through the movement of muscles, and
it can be activated either by the wearer or by the monitoring
"While a number of other tracking and monitoring technologies have
been patented and marketed in the past, they are all unsuitable for
the widespread tracking, recovery and identification of people due to
a variety of limitations, including unwieldy size, maintenance
requirements, insufficient or inconvenient power-supply and
activation difficulties," explains a company prospectus. "For the
first time in the history of location and monitoring technology,
Digital Angel(R) overcomes these limitations."
The company projects a global market for this technology in excess of
But the applications it discusses just don't add up to that kind of
number. The math doesn't work for me. You decide. Here's what the
company is talking about: business security, locating individuals,
monitoring medical conditions, tracking and locating essential
military and diplomatic personnel, tracking personal property.
The only way that adds up to a hundred billion in my calculator is if
every human being on earth gets one of these implants. And maybe
that's the idea.
On Jan. 31, APS accepted the special "Technology Pioneers" award from
the World Economic Forum for the company's contributions to worldwide
economic development and social progress through technology
And what is the World Economic Forum? It bills itself as an
independent organization committed to improving the state of the
world. It does this by "creating the foremost global partnerships of
business, political, intellectual and other leaders of society to
define and discuss key issues on the global agenda."
Now, I want you to use your imagination here, for a moment. Why would
an organization committed to breaking down nationalist barriers and
moving the world toward global government give a technology award to
a company that just acquired the patent to a sophisticated,
implantable identification device? Hmmmmm? And guess what one of the
foremost goals of WEF is? You got it -- vaccinating every human being
on the planet. How convenient! What a coincidence.
President Clinton recently addressed the WEF in Davos, Switzerland.
He boasted about asking the Congress to give pharmaceutical
conglomerates tax credits to make vaccines more widely available at
low cost. He appealed for a similar effort from the World Bank, other
nations and the corporate world to deliver the vaccines to the people
who need them -- meaning everyone.
How could ADS ever hope to make $100 billion with this new
technology? By implanting it in every human being in the world. And
how could that be done? At vaccination time, of course.
Let's see now. The application is buying and selling. The technology
is implantable. The plans are global.
This sounds remarkably like something I read in Revelation 13:16-
18: "And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free
and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their
foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the
mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is
wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the
beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred
threescore and six."
Digital Angel? Sounds more like we could be entering the age of the
