It Begins! India Is First Country To Start Nationwide Biometric ID Program For Every Citizen

Here is an article we will talk about on Wednesday when we do our prophecy show with Mary Danielsen:

The Mark of the Beast

For years now, we have warned and warned about the coming One World Government that will see it’s completion in what the bible calls the mark of the beast. In the scary new world, every single citizen is registered and cataloged with the government through retinal scans, fingerprints and ultimately an implantable microchip. Sound far fetched, you say? Could never happen? It is happening in India right now to the tune of 1 million people being processed every 24 hours.

India Is First Country To Begin National Biometric ID Processing Program

From the Activist Post: India has launched a nationwide program involving the allocation of a Unique Identification Number (UID) to every single one of its 1.2 billion residents. Each of the numbers will be tied to the biometric data of the recipient using three different forms of information – fingerprints, iris scans, and pictures of the face. All ten digits of the hand will be recorded, and both eyes will be scanned.

The project will be directed by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) under the premise of preventing identity theft and social welfare fraud. India has rather extensive social welfare and safety net programs, ranging from medical support and heating assistance to others aimed at helping the poor. Fraud is a rampant problem in India, especially in relation to these programs due to a preponderance of corrupt politicians and bureaucrats who often stuff welfare rolls with fake names and take the money for themselves.

Yet, although the justification for the billion person database is the increased ability to accurately disperse social welfare benefits, it will not be just the Indian government’s social welfare programs that have access to and utilize the UIDAI. Indeed, even before the program has been completed, major banks, state/local governments, and other institutions are planning to use the UIDAI for identification verification purposes and, of course, payment and accessibility.

The program is introduced as a way to speed up transactions, increase efficiency, and provide convenience. Soon, however, governments and businesses begin to transition out of the older methods of payment and identification and focus more on the new technology. Identification using the traditional methods remain as an option, but become viewed as cumbersome. Eventually, the alternative methods are phased out completely and mandates replace what was once a personal choice.

As soon as Indian banks, businesses, and government social service offices begin to require identification using the UID, the ability to remain off the system and lead what passes for a normal life will disappear.

This is exactly the intention with India’s new biometric ID program. In fact, the cashless society is a stated goal of the UID program. CEO of MindTree’s IT Services, the company that was awarded the government contract for development and maintenance of the UID, explained in an interview with ComputerWeekly that the “ID scheme will support a cashless society. He said all vendors will have a biometric reader and citizens can pay for things with a fingerprint scan. Even a bag of rice.”

This new monumental data mining effort by the Indian government dovetails with recent efforts in the Western world to develop an electronic surveillance grid capable of tracking, tracing, and recording every single movement and communication of every single citizen within a nation’s borders.

New technologies which are being introduced inside the United States, the UK, and Australia such as vein scanners, biometric employee time and attendance systems, voice recognition devices, and behavior analysis systems are all geared toward Total Information Awareness of every human being on the planet. source – Activist Post

    Well there ya go. Let's keep watching. I think when it come to the US there is going to be some, shall we say, 'resistance.' But then again I am not prophesying.

    Really? We are looking to the Left Behind series to tell us what the mark of the beast will be? Come on people!

    Having lived in India, I saw first hand that fraud and identity theft is a huge problem. Largely, it is due to a lack of reliable identity verification. You also have to note that there are thousands of babies born every day in villages that have no registration or knowledge outside their village that they exist. It is painstakingly hard for them to get any aid when it is needed. The fact that the government is instituting some sort of process to get everyone registered is a huge step forward.

    In the USA we all have a SS number tied to our names. We also have bank account numbers attached to us. Some of us use fingerprint scanners on our computers or phones for security. If you travel into many foreign countries now they at least scan your index fingers and take your picture at immigration. And there are millions of Americans whom already have finger prints on file as well. Biometrics is the safest way to ensure that only you can access any asset or benefit.

    Realistically speaking, if this is a sign of the end times, like the author suggests, as Christians we should welcome it. That means our Lord is coming soon.
