Neighbor came over discussing 666 mark of the beast!

I was outside shovelling snow, when a neighbor seen me and came over to interrupt my shovelling. We began talking about borders and such, and new security things that were popping up everywhere, mostly in the form of biometric scanning.

We know certain companies have pay systems that have finger print scans... Some companies now have hand scanners, either for tickets for themeparks or entry into workplaces...

Then the debate came as he said perhaps it is 666, or the mark of the beast...

Well, I thought about it for a bit... I had read the bible when I was very young, and remembered a bit about it. I had not went to church now for a good year and a half due to my own personal problems at home... No time on my hands, actually to do anything... So I am no better than anyone else out there, that is for sure...

I replied that I was thinking that those hand scanners and finger print jobbies, are just like taking X rays at the hospital. I did not believe that we were there yet, and many different companies have the systems running through many different applications ( more companies have it, the less secure it could be for one useage such as payment methods), so I dismissed it all as it is not here yet..

But he did follow up on my comments that it does pave the way for it in the future, where a stamp, barcode, or a chip could be placed on your right hand or forehead...

I said, yes, it does pave the way for it someday to happen... When, we do not know... A place where governments probably will combine together, and control will be centralized more than ever...

All in all, it was very interesting how the Bible today - 99 % has not changed from those 300 BC dead sea scrolls, had something in Revelation that could be very much relevant in the future... And plainly written in black and white... Cannot buy or sell anything without the mark...

And of course, it takes a combined religious and political force to take it to task... A huge one, as todays freedoms and liberties, peoples charters, and countries laws, would never allow this to happen.. Unless changed in the future by dictatorships or autocracies...

Did it already happen- Roman Empire, Nazi Germany? Some people say it did, but where or what was the mark of the beast back then? Has humanity learned enough from those times as to not oppress another religion or people, race or community? Not sure as we still see crazy things going on right now.

We left the debate at that, probably believing that it could, perhaps could, probably happen at another time in the distant future...

Very interesting, especially with technology developping the way it is to track everything we do... Well, we will see what the future holds...

Till next time...

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

Supermarket Guy 5 doing very well.

Have approximately 15 % written on Part 5 so far. It is going really well, but the first few chapters maybe more drama and less action. Relationships come into play as the main characters father and mother first meet. A meeting of the eccentrics, one extreme male dominate character with a woman who takes liberty to the maximum extreme, looking back to the 70's, where we remember the 8 track tape and black and white tv. When smoking was cool. A decade where the men held the dominance in affairs and in the household, and the women usually held the fort at the home. Things have changed for the better through the late 80s and 90s, as a womans place in the world has become much more equal these days, becoming bread winners and with the men sharing allot of the household chores these days in many families. Perhaps Margaret Thatcher paved the way for many women all over the world. Now even governments make sure there is a good number of women in their cabinet in order to govern, and man…
