The Internet is blowing up with wild rumors of an upcoming mandatory micro-chipping. The not-so-electronic rumor mill is also spinning in overdrive. I’ve had numerous people tell (warn) me of the upcoming Mark of the Beast, sponsored by Obama. Some are fearful, others are angry, all are sure that Obama is pushing through the 666 microchip. One elderly woman recently warned me that this would all happen by March 2013! Another, a young woman, stated online that this Obamacare chip is not the true mark of the beast, but will also be an act of satan worship and damn your soul to hell. These rumors keep picking up speed.
There are numerous reasons why people like conspiracy theories. Yet the biggest danger is that once we embark full-on into wacky-world, when something serious does happen, no one will listen to us because we have “cried wolf” a bazillion times in the past. So let’s be normal, please. Here is why this microchip this is a big joke:
1. The bill with the ‘Medical Device Registry’ was not passed into law
The emails/posts usually reference bill HR3200 as legalizing a special registry that mandates everyone to be chipped and recorded in the Medical Device Registry. HR3200 was a very early draft of the Obamacare law that was rejected. There have been numerous revisions of the Obamacare legislation, and the final version (HR 3962) that was passed by congress has nothing at all mentioning “biomedical devices” or a Registry. We are dealing with a discarded rough draft that made it to the internet. It carries as much legal weight as toilet paper.
2. The bill rough draft had nothing to do with RFID microchips
This purported Registry covers medical devices used in patients not microchips used for banking, identification, or Satan worship. It was stated that “class II” or “class III” biomedical devices are actually chips implanted under your skin. The classes have nothing to do with what type of device it is, only with how much safety checks it must go through before doctors can provide patients with such a device. Some real examples of class II and III devices include: physiologic monitors, x-ray systems, gas analyzers, pumps, replacement heart valves, silicone gel-filled breast implants, and pacemakers.
3. It would not have forced or mandated anyone to obtain anything
There was nothing in the language that said “all citizens and residents must be on the Medical Device Registry.” Instead it was something created only for patients who use such medical devices. Most Americans would have been unaffected and not have known anything about this. This would not have forced anyone to get a chip any more than it forced anyone to get a hip replacement surgery. Biomedical devices are voluntary things people use for a health benefit.
4. The whole idea was only drawn up to regulate medical devices, not people
Here is the actual language used “The Secretary shall establish a national medical device registry to facilitate analysis of postmarket safety and outcomes data on each device that—‘‘(A) is or has been used in or on a patient; and‘‘(i) a class III device; or ‘‘(ii) a class II device that is implantable, life-supporting, or life-sustaining.” The whole point was to collect safety data about different brands of devices (such as two different kinds of pacemakers) to track the long term effectiveness of these devices. There is nothing about planting chips that brainwash and control people, only a blurb about making sure defective medical devices are put out of business.
5. Such a “mass chipping” could not happen without massive civil war
America started from the very beginning as a “free country” but true universal freedom is impossible in a sinful, fallen world. Even our great country has always limited greatest freedom to a certain group of people. In culture one group gets a “freedom” and by that “freedom” limits a second group. For example, slaves and Native Americans were not free to live as they wanted, yet the charlatans and slave traders were free to do what they wanted. Slave-owners wanted the “freedom” to own slaves, but the only way they could maintain this is by limiting another person’s freedom. When America took away the “freedom” to own slaves, a civil war ensued. It took 620,000 lives (more than all American casualties in all historic wars combined) to instantly take away the “freedom” to own slaves. If that’s the case, imagine the war it would take to instantly make everyone into a slave! There are close to 3 million soldiers and on active duty and on reserve. Since 1998, there have been 151 million background checks for gun purchases. About half of all Americans own guns. I’d love to see someone try to forcefully micro-chip 150 million people with guns. That is absurd, illogical, and quite impossible.
Truth is, this ridiculous microchip idea is a red herring that distracts us from a very slow and gradual cultural shift that is redefining morality and prosecuting Christian values. And by naively believing such lies as this microchip rubbish, we are showing ourselves to be as untrustworthy and ignorant as some think we are. By this we are heaping kindling to the fires of secularism.
