Self-Proclaimed Time Traveler Miraculously Passes Lie-Detector Tests, Predicts Trump Will Be Re-Elected And Humans Will Travel To Mars

This man traveled all the way back from 2030 to prove that people are way too gullible. FML for society on this one.

A man going by the name of 'Noah' claims to have traveled back in time from the year 2030 to warn us about what the future has in store. His predictions include a re-election for Trump in 2020, artificial Intelligence taking over, humans flying to Mars and a surge in Bitcoin usage. Noah also claims that his actual age is 50, but that he has taken drugs in order to bring him back to his youth.

Anyone can spout as much nonsense as they want, and it’s up to the listeners to decide whether or not they want to believe it. But the interesting thing about the so-called time traveler Noah is that he actually passed a polygraph test.

The entire video can be watched here:

Despite the polygraph pass, commenters of the original article, which was posted on 9gag, are skeptical.

We're skeptical as well. It can't go without saying that throughout the video, you never actually see the lie detector, and instead all you see are the answers flashing on the screen indicating that he had answered truthfully. Moreover, it’s practically common knowledge that if you remain calm during the polygraph test,  you can fool the machine. APA.org explains the process of a polygraph test, pretty much implying that it’s just about whether or not the person is calm vs nervous.

“So-called ‘lie detection’ involves inferring deception through analysis of physiological responses to a structured, but unstandardized, series of questions. The instrument typically used to conduct polygraph tests consists of a physiological recorder that assesses three indicators of autonomic arousal: heart rate/blood pressure, respiration, and skin conductivity.”

Time traveler, or just a seriously disturbed kid? Let us know what you think.

Polygraphs are unreliable. You can train yourself to slow your heart rate enough to affect it, or you can believe your lies are truths, and vice versa, to the point where not only are you fooling the polygraph, but yourself, as well. It happened on an episode of the underrated TV show Numbers.

Not sure about Psych, but Numbers actually did a ton of research into their math and science for the show. They even had a consultant from CalTech on the staff to check everything.

The things he said are already being said so big deal. Trump will no doubt get re-elected as did Dubya cuz the Dems will fail us again, Elon Musk will get us to Mars and Bitcoin is writing it’s own history everyday...where’s the surprise?

Isn't it funny all these so called "time travellers" somehow only appear on YouTube? It's like the only reputable source of media available to save the planet. I'm sure it's much better than talking to scientist or other influential people to help them tell the truth. Nope, YouTube channel run by some teen in their mums basement.

He passed an incredibly flimsy, notoriously unreliable test that doesn't directly measure the thing it's intended to determine? OH WOW!
