www.msnbc.msn.com... the govt is going to start barcoding the 1.8million known species. how long until they start barcoding us,this is like the bible where we would have to wear a mark on the hand or forehead to buy or sell.

From the article:



A consortium of scientists from almost 50 nations is overseeing the building of a global database made from tiny pieces of genetic material. Called DNA barcoding, the process takes a scientist only a few hours in a lab and about $2 to identify a species from a tissue sample or other piece of genetic material.

David Schindel, a Smithsonian Institution paleontologist and executive secretary of the Consortium for the Barcode of Life, said the purpose is to create a global reference library — "a kind of telephone directory for all species."

"If I know that gene sequence, I can submit it as a query to a database and get back the telephone number," he said. "I can get back the species name."


Yes this is interesting. There could be so much more to this than they're admitting to. Maybe they need to verify the identity of people... or aliens?

FYI - I'm watching Men In Black II on TV right now.

exactly,what if they used to it start tracking immigrants or anyone for that matter and seeing as dna is so easy to come by it wouldnt be hard to be documented against our will

This is disgusting. Why do we need to document are selves? Sounds like someone is paranoid about something. We are farming the animals instead of hunting them. Its really creepy. Once these animals were free and we were their predator. Now they obey behind bars like in the holocaust.

If we have this documentation in some library. What real purpose does it have other than to track for food the lazy way. Human are lazy and there are way to many of us.

um, wow.

Perhaps you can all take off your tinfoil hats for a moment and consider that maybe this database is to, well, help study?

A lasting database of information about all the species could be incredibly useful in hundreds of fields including science and medicine.

stop being so paranoid.

If you think liek this then your on the wrong site and if you used logic you could see no one is going to spend the amount of money on this programme that the govt did without using it or seeing the potential for other applications

umm I don't think they're barcoding all individual animals and humans, they're just barcoding the species...

111111 = giraffe

Not

111112 = Len the Giraffe
111113 = Max the Giraffe

I think this could actually be a good thing. It'll certainly save money.

In fact, here are some good things that could come out of this:


The Food and Drug Administration has begun eyeing it as a tool to ferret out hazardous fish species and to confirm a type of leech used in some surgery. In May, the FDA used it to warn that a shipment labeled monkfish from China might actually be a type of pufferfish that could contain a deadly toxin if not prepared properly.

The Federal Aviation Administration and Air Force hope it will help them identify birds prone to collide with aircraft. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration sees it as a means to track commercial fish and reduce killing of unwanted species also caught by nets.



Why are so many people always quick to yell "conspiracy" and "New World Order"?

Umm yeah that’s nice and all for science. Problem is if they find a cure for cancer by studying these animals and bar-coding them and whatever else the government wants to do. There will be no way in hell your insurance will cover you for this cure. They may cover you only partially but the rest of it is on you. I mean think about how much money they are putting into making these ideas work. You think the cures will be cheap. NOPE!! That’s where they get you. If you don't believe me, call Genentech. They are always working on cures for everything. I watched these guys in action on the phone with insurance companies and doctors and whoever else gets involved. Its just another business like everything else.

This is nice.

Especially if combined with Digital Angel type technology.

What? "Welcome to ATS, you must believe anything and everything presented to you, if you dont, theres the door"


\if you used logic you could see no one is going to spend the amount of money on this programme that the govt did without using it or seeing the potential for other applications


I know, i just said the other applications, Medicine, science, etc.

Check out Dragonsdomains external source.

hehehe. welcome to Australia, where most forms of treatment are free, if not they are only a small amount. $100-$200, something like that.


They may cover you only partially but the rest of it is on you. I mean think about how much money they are putting into making these ideas work. You think the cures will be cheap. NOPE!!


Yes
i get free vaccines for a large amount of diseases every year.

Luckily my government cares, right?

socialist medicine kicks ass

thats not what we are speculating we are simply saying that yes the technology exist but how long untill someone rationlizes using it on us,they keep a database of sex offenders you think they wouldnt use this to catalog thier DNA?! and i propose how long untill people with aids or people of ethniticities. rationality is a wonderful thing to governments when it works in their favour
