Are universal barcodes, implantable chips on people the mark of the Beast?

“60 Second Idea,” in association with the BBC, promoted the ideas of science fiction writer Elizabeth Moon, who believes everyone should be given a bar code at birth. Moon said, “If I were empress of the universe I would insist on every individual having a unique ID permanently attached - a barcode if you will; an implanted chip to provide an easy, fast, inexpensive way to identify individuals. It would be imprinted on everyone at birth. Point the scanner at someone and there it is.”

According to “60 Second Idea” and the BBC, “Each week a global thinker from the worlds of philosophy, science, psychology or the arts is given a minute to put forward a radical, inspiring or controversial idea – no matter how improbable – that they believe would change the world.” What is interesting about Moon’s barcode at birth idea is that the Apostle John predicted that in the last days there would be a one world economic system built around a barcode-type concept. Although, John was not specifically referring to a barcode, he predicted that each person would receive a special mark that would identify them and enable them to participate in the coming one world economic system. This mark is commonly referred to as the mark of the beast or the number “666.”

And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.”
--Revelation 13:16-18
