This is my first post on this board. I'm not sure if this topic has been gone over before, so bare with me if it has. Either way, this is what I
Ever heard of UPC? This stands for Universal Product Code, commonly called Bar Code. Any time you go to the store to purchase something, this little
code is what the computer uses to identify a product, the price of the product, and any other information on the product that might be available.
If you look at any bar code, you will notice three sections of lines in the beginning, middle, and end of the code that are slightly longer
than the rest of the code. To a computer, these sections of code read as follows: "Start Code" "Switch Code" "End Code".
The computer begins reading the code, switches encryption half way through, finishes reading the rest of the code, then stops.
This is where religious conspiracy theorists' heads will spin. The number in these sections of code that represents these commands is the number 6.
If read all the way across: 666.
I've heard of certain computer companies (not mentioning any names) that offer to tattoo a light pink bar code onto the skin of their
employees for identification purposes. Instead of having an identification card, finger print idenfifier, or some other secret agent gadget you see
in movies, you get a bar code that identifies who you are. Without this code, you are not granted access to certain areas. The companies claim that
this is a matter of convenience since employees don't have to worry about remembering their identification and it's completely hand-free.
So my question is:
Is this the "mark of the Beast" that the Bible says everyone will be forced to bare in the future?
