The Kindle Debate

A debate with a friend over whether or not I should buy a Kindle sparked a deeply philosophical discussion over the necessity for one.  Up until now, my objections were mostly tactile, but the more I think about, the more this question bothers me: Do I really NEED a Kindle? 

I am beginning to feel as though technology is complicating our lives in a way that is unnecessary and unnerving.  What happens when every book is available on an electronic device or on the internet?  Will we begin to close libraries?  What will we do with all the books?  Will there be arguments made about their storage?  Their usefulness?  Their destruction?  Will it turn into another way to keep the poor uneducated, with no libraries and no money to access technology?

Granted, I’m going a  little COnspiracy Theory here, but how is all of this technology actually BENEFITTING us as human beings, if at all?  Aren’t these things supposed to be “connecting” us to each other?  Then why are we all in our separate homes having coffee at our separate computers “talking” to each other through status updates and blog posts?  I don’t think I can contribute to that any more than I already do.  Plus, the mingled smell of coffee and printed paper still makes me swoon.


A Little Scary

I read about a Bio-chip on Department of Homeland Security that’s a little more freaky than some of us would think.  Please read about it while I spend the weekend in Canada.

Transcribed from a Power Point Slide Pesentation ‘The 666 Microchip’ – July 15, 2008

Motorola is the company producing the microchip for the MONDEX SMARTCARD. More than 250 corporations and 20 countries are involved in the distribution of MONDEX to the world and many nations are “privileged” to use this system, among them: Great Britain, Canada, U.S.A., Australia, New Zealand, Israel, Hong Kong, China, Indonesia, Macau, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, India, Taiwan, Sri Lanka, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Panama, Honduras, El Salvadore and Brazil.
They have developed several implants for humans using the “Bio-chip”.
The “bio-chip” measures 7mm in length and is .075mm wide, about the same size as a grain of rice. It contains a transponder and a rechargeable Lithium battery. A thermocouple circuit that produces an electrical current with the fluctuation of body temperature recharges the battery.
MONDEX spent more than $1.5 million dollars in research just to find the best place to insert the “Bio-chip” into the human body. They found only two satisfactory and efficient places – THE HEAD, underneath the scalp and the backside of the hand specifically … THE RIGHT HAND!
Revelation 13:16, 17 (v16) He causes all, both great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, (v.17) and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Revelation 13:16,17


I am not perfect. I do my best to practice what I preach, but I am human. My mantra is, "DO NO HARM". I may not always succeed, but I will always try. My goal is to be a better person today than I was yesterday.
