Here's something to think about for you skeptics. It is said that lie detectors can be fooled and that the 99 percent accuracy level means nothing. Justin Smeja recently beat a Limestone Polygraph instrument, one of the most accurate ones out there, and it's used by the government. Even after Justin's polygraph results showed that he was telling the truth, some are still claiming that lie detectors are flawed and that anyone can fool a polygraph.
Here's the question that was posted on our forum earlier today: What if Justin failed the polygraph exam? Would skeptics accept the polygraph results and say that they knew he was lying all along?
SasquaiNation posted the following statement:
Let me flip this scenario around if I may. What if Justin failed miserably on the polygraph? I wonder how many would still hold their view of polygraph testing and the machine's accuracy. I'm willing to bet that almost nobody would say "but wait, Justin could be telling the truth because these types of tests are known to be unreliable."
Is it the man or the machine that people are having difficulty with? Something to ponder.
