The Polygraph As A Truth DetectorWritten by William Trevino
Continued from page 1
The polygraph procedure and machine is an accretion of 1930s technology and popularized psychology rooted not in practices of modern science, but rather based on traditions of polygraph testing itself. In that sense, a polygraph examination is a self-fulfilling process, "measuring" a series of physical signs without machine and drawing subjective, psychological sounding conclusions in varying ways depending upon mental state and set and training of each, and rapport between both, examination subject and examiner. The result of this exercise, associative of monitoring machines of Scientology, is a series of conclusions about veracity of specific statements or guilt generally, conclusions unsupportable by consistent scientific logic or by confirmation by other means. In fact, there is convincing evidence to suggest that procedure is much more likely to create victims of false allegation than it is likely to detect purveyors of falsehood or paragons of guilt-however falsehood or guilt may be defined. The statistical illustration at end of paper provides an illustration of this phenomenon. To read rest of this articel go to http://www.police-test.net/polygrapha1.htm

Hodgepodge JusticeWritten by Terry Dashner
Continued from page 1
I believe that national governments of all countries are responsible to God and its citizens to discover and protect human rights. However, positive law proponents disagree. They believe that nations and their governments create laws. In light of history, this is a dangerous philosophy to embrace. Accountability, according to Bible, is first to God and then to state. God ordained human governments to maintain order throughout world. Citizens are to abide by laws of land; however when a man’s law supersedes God’s law, God’s people must resist it with all their might.
I conclude this “hodgepodge” of thoughts with a quote from Thomas Jefferson. He said, “God who gave us life, gave us liberty. Can liberties of a nation remain secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are gift of God? Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that his justice cannot sleep forever.”
