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