"Scientists have embarked on a massive project to "barcode" every species of life on earth to create what would be a modern-day Noah's Ark to aid research."

Will protests abound? My interpretation of the Bible passage is merely our works/actions and thoughts/heart. However, we still need to fear Big Brother. He is definitely coming!

re: The Mark
