'Cashless' fingerprint technology

Quote from: Amber Hunt
RAPID CITY, S.D. — Futurists proclaimed the coming of a cashless society, where dollar bills and plastic cards are replaced by fingerprint and retina scanners smart enough to distinguish a living, breathing account holder from an identity thief.

One such technology is making its debut at a small state college in South Dakota.

Two shops on the campus are performing one of the world's first experiments in Biocryptology – a mix of biometrics (using physical traits for identification) and cryptology (the study of encoding private information). Students can buy potato chips with a machine that non-intrusively detects their hemoglobin to make sure the transaction is legitimate.

The technology safeguards against a thief removing someone else's finger to fool the scanner.

The machine identifies a print and checks that blood is pulsing beneath it, allowing a buy. The receipt is sent via email on a smartphone.

Nexus USA – a subsidiary of Spanish-based Hanscan Indentity Management, patented the technology.

Religious Lie: "God only paid for sins until the next time you sin."
Forgiveness is available until we get to eternity and then our eternal fate is sealed. Right now, people are free to sin and repent; but there is no forgiveness of sin for the damned in hell.

JUST A THINK ABOUT IT: Will you embrace the full meaning of Christmas? Jesus didn't die just so you could go to heaven. He came to give you life - His life; an abundant life free from guilt, condemnation, and slavery to both sins and religion. He came to bring a grace revolution to the world and tha
