The more invasive and intrusive technology gets, the less willing I am to be anywhere near the "cutting edge" of it. I think we're definitely at the point where technology is changing so fast people aren't really thinking through the ramifications associated with each change.
But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy.
"I saw a voice analysis system that could be combined with cellphone technology to enable remote medical analysis of virtually everyone on the planet. It would create an extraordinary new approach to early diagnostics and constant monitoring at an astonishingly low cost."
Ditching credit cards for facial recognition will remove the last physical barrier between our bodies and Corporate America
Many consumers will need convincing before they ‘smile and pay.’ Aram Sinnreich recently went grocery shopping at a Whole Foods Market in his hometown of Washington, D.C., and realized he had left his wallet at home. He had no cards and no cash, but he had no reason to worry — at least, not about paying for his food. “I used my iPhone to pay, and I unlocked it with my face,” he said.
That’s when it struck him: We are just one small step away from paying with our bodily features alone. With in-store facial-recognition machines, he wouldn’t even need his smartphone. Sinnreich, associate professor of communication studies at American University, said he got a glimpse of the future that day.
Biometric technology is infiltrating every other aspect of our digital lives. Next stop: replacing your wallet. Biometric mobile wallets — payment technologies using our faces, fingerprints or retinas — already exist. Notable technology companies including Apple AAPL, -0.01% and Amazon AMZN, -0.39% await a day when a critical mass of consumers is sufficiently comfortable walking into a store and paying for goods without a card or device, according to Sinnreich, author of “The Essential Guide to Intellectual Property.”
Removing the last physical barrier — smartphones, watches, smart glasses and credit cards — between our bodies and corporate America is the final frontier in mobile payments. “The deeper the tie between the human body and the financial networks, the fewer intimate spaces will be left unconnected to those networks,” Sinnreich said. ... The facial-recognition market is projected to double to $9 billion between 2018 and 2024, according to Mordor Intelligence, a consulting and analytics firm.
Juniper predicts that 80% of smartphones will have some form of biometric hardware by 2023, representing just over 5 billion smartphones. That has traditionally meant fingerprint sensors, but facial recognition and iris scanning will become more prominent over the next five years, with adoption surpassing 1 billion devices, Juniper forecasts.
Revelation 13: 16-17 16 Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, 17 so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name.
Its the iPhone X facetime feature? I guess we are giving up on the barcode or the microchip then?
No, at least I’m not. I believe that these are all related events leading up to the Beast system. A new world order system. A surveillance state. Big corporations and Big govt are already working together to build this infrastructure. Incremental changes like these are going to make it easier for people to ultimately accept the chip/barcode. Is it really going to be a stretch for them to convince the masses to accept those as the next step? They will tell us ‘well we already have all your information. We already know everywhere you have been and where you are going and what you are doing and what you are buying. This is now necessary for your safety. And if you don’t accept this you won’t be able to work, or get health services, or drive, or buy and sell, etc’
From link- Home improvement stores like Home Depot and Lowe's have become partners in Big Brother's ever expanding public surveillance program. According to the Cook County Record, two recent class action lawsuits accuse Home Depot and Lowe's of secretly using facial recognition to identify customers as soon as they enter their stores.
On Sept. 4, 2019, a group of plaintiffs simultaneously filed virtually identical class action complaints in Cook County Circuit Court in Chicago against Lowe’s and in federal court in Atlanta against Home Depot, accusing the retailers of violating the Illinois state law by “surreptitiously” scanning customers’ faces as they moved about the chains’ stores.
According to the Lowe's lawsuit, home improvement stores are secretly using facial recognition to identify everyone.
The Home Depot and the Lowe's cases claim that they have failed to inform customers that their biometric data is being collected, and did not obtain written consent for doing so. Home Depot and Lowe's have also neglected to post a publicly available retention schedule detailing when the data will be destroyed.
According to the Lowe's class action, "defendants actively conceal their faceprinting practices from the public."The class action also claims that Lowe's has been secretly using facial recognition for over 11 years. There is no mention of how long Home Depot has been using facial recognition.
Have private corporations secretly turned America into China? Since when did it become OK for private corporations to secretly surveil the public?
But that is not the end of this privacy nightmare. Things get worse, and I mean a lot worse.
Can you imagine two competing corporations sharing millions of facial recognition photos and descriptions of customers? Well imagine no more, because it is happening right now. The class actions claim that Home Depot and Lowe’s have shared facial recognition pictures of its customers with other stores. Welcome to China, sorry I meant America: where everyone is treated like a potential criminal.
Think about what this means: both Home Depot and Lowe's have secretly collected millions of customers faces and are sharing them with other stores, regardless of whether or not they have committed a crime. Corporations and Big Brother do not care about our privacy, in fact the opposite is true. Corporations want to monetize our privacy and Big Brother wants to use it to track everyone.
By everyone, I mean your kids, family, friends, co-workers, and even your pets are all affected by facial recognition.
Stopping facial recognition should be everyone's goal unless you like being treated as a potential criminal everywhere you go.
I view it as such, the beast existed 3 previous times. All 3 times, none of that stuff mattered. Now, I’m not saying that technology doesn’t influence mankind’s mind, because it does! I am saying in each previous case, we understand the beast when we understand that previous 3. Babylon had many gods, but the king was to be worshipped. The king’s word was law, not his counselors or a senate. People did what they wanted when they wanted. Motivational driven economy. Persecution of others. Unfair trade practices. And so on...
I caution everyone looking with a single eye on face and hand (mark) things because you can limit the scope of what it may be. Don’t make it so linear.
The mark is a spiritual condition. That condition has to be made with a world view in hand. That condition does not have to be physical. But it does have to be spiritual. Christ warned us to know right from wrong. Not all tech is bad when used correctly.
Gold is useful. But made into a calf for worship is evil. A blade is useful to cut. But used to kill is wrong. Technology is no different.
It was the barcode in the 80’s, popularized in movies. Then it evolves into the microchip in the 90’s. Now facial recognition in 2015. Perhaps retinal scanning later? The use of tools wasn’t wrong in Babylon. It’s how they were abused. And the abuse of the tools comes from mans sinful heart. The tools themselves aren’t inherently evil. But the men who abuse them.
visit-r: I sincerely believe that most here would agree that Paul at REVELATIONCHAPTER12dotCOM is a "true watchman" and is definitely a watchman that "builds up". Noting as well that NOT all so called "watchmen" are true. Peace.

mike: visit-r the first link is 'elephant in the room' - was that intentional? Not sure I follow why thats posted here. perhaps some of the dialogue attributed to it, has scrolled off. Second link - I also started watching Pauls video 20 mins ago
Feb 26, 2020 6:13:05 GMT -6
mike: Paul is certainly watching! Is he correct about everything? Certainly not, but I truly appreciate his diligence and earnest to watch and share with others whether correct or not
Feb 26, 2020 6:14:12 GMT -6
visit-r: mike, I posted two links yesterday. Unfortunately they were "forced off the page". The "elephant in the room" video aptly describes the atmosphere here. And - It was the second video I posted yesterday. It remains to be an issue IMO - sadly.
Feb 26, 2020 6:20:27 GMT -6
mike: Oh-Youre seeing an elephant? What may I ask is it that you see? (and yes the site causes posts in the shoutbox to scroll off the page)
Feb 26, 2020 6:22:52 GMT -6
visit-r: mike, yes, I believe Paul is very correct. I also believe that it is (in itself) prophecy being fulfilled. You can figure out the "elephant in the room" idiom for yourself. I'm done.
Feb 26, 2020 6:24:15 GMT -6
mike: visit-r - I would not asked about it if I was certain I knew what you feel is the elephant. I am not able to decipher your reference from reading a few shoutbox posts over a few days/weeks. But thanks for trying
Feb 26, 2020 6:30:37 GMT -6
mike: As for Paul being 'very correct' - I do not know how long you have followed his videos however some of those from 2+ yrs ago were clearly not correct. In his zeal and love for Christ his study at times has led him to incorrect conclusions...

mike: while the current is something I've also pondered, I do see some stronger evidence now for who the death dealer is. I continue to observe as things unfold. we shall know soon enough

tlwald: The amount of censorship on the internet is mind blowing. I went to read a thread listed above and saw a thread on the Coronavirus. I clicked backed to go to it and it is GONE from my page. Wow.
Feb 26, 2020 7:17:42 GMT -6
tlwald: My comments keep vanishing. This is weird.
Feb 26, 2020 7:27:34 GMT -6
mike: tlwald-we can try to investigate. can you give us more information? I see your post in the COV19 thread. Perhaps email me the details of what you think happened?
Feb 26, 2020 7:31:15 GMT -6
visit-r: Just in case. Worth reposting anyway.
Feb 26, 2020 7:39:45 GMT -6
tlwald: Mike...the one that completely vanished was on one of the articles about the Coronavirus. Not here is the boards. When I refreshed my page the ones here reappeared. The one on the article never did. I have no clue. Sorry I can’t help you more.

USCG_Vet: Paul pretty much claims Trump is the AC and that "the deal of the century" is the covenant of Daniel 9:27 even though nothing about it is for 7 years. He said 7 years isn't a requirement...
Feb 26, 2020 7:53:14 GMT -6
visit-r: Sorry tlwald I misunderstood. I sure did sound like Gomer Pyle there - Ha Ha...Anyone remember that...Ah! those Hollyweirdos...Now I sure AM showing my age...https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gomer_Pyle
Feb 26, 2020 8:07:15 GMT -6
mike: Vet & visit-r - I do have my suspicion about Trump and I will leave my suspicion as such, short of what Paul D has stated. One thing is that we are near the end. If there is another 'deal/dealer' it should appear very soon
