A ‘time-traveller’ who says he is from the future has passed a lie detector test after claiming Donald Trump will be re-elected and Artificial Intelligence will take over.
In a startling YouTube video posted by Apex TV the man, whose face and voice have been distorted to hide his identity, claims he has risked his life to travel back in time.
Apex TV says it is ‘one of the biggest voices of paranormal content on YouTube’, with over 56 million views and 100,000 subscribers.
His mission, he says, is to tell those alive now what the world has in store.
Among his predictions is the claim that Google Glass-style robotics will spread across the globe.
Technology will also have developed to the point where it will be able to independently run a home.
Bitcoin will be increasingly popular but pennies and cents will still be in use.
In 2030 he says the US president is a mysterious figure called Ilana Remikee.
He also suggests global warming has caused temperatures in North America to increase while Europe has cooled.
Humans will reach Mars in 2028 and, the same year, time travel will be discovered.
He states that electric cars will be able to travel as fast as diesel and petrol ones (despite many already being able to do so) and many forms of cancer have been cured.
In a previous interview with Paranormal Elite, Noah said he had anorexia and is in fact 50-years-old, but that he had taken an age rejuvenation drug which had transformed him into a 25-year-old.
Of course, his claims have attracted scepticism. In response, he agreed to take a lie detector test on camera.

Critics have been quick to claim the test was rigged and that the lie detector (pictured) was not switched on
In the footage from ApexTV the would-be oracle is seen sitting on a chair with what appears to be a polygraph lie detector wrapped around his bicep.
He is asked to predict some of the future’s major events – and confirm he really is who he says he is.
The interview begins and Noah is asked a simple question: ‘Are you an actual time traveller from the year 2030?’
He responds with a yes and ‘TRUE’ appears in large green letters superimposed on the video. However, the results on the machine are not shown.
Noah then claims he has ‘hard evidence’ to back up his predictions but isn’t sure that he can say what that it because it might cause a paradox.
Once again, the word ‘TRUE’ appears on screen again.
How do lie detectors work?
A person receiving a lie detector test (file picture)
In police investigations – and often when someone applies for a job when national security can be compromised – a suspect or applicant will be subjected to a lie detector or polygraph test. They are now routine for U.S. government jobs with the FBI or CIA. The goal of a lie detector is to see if the person is telling the truth or lying when answering certain questions.
When a person takes a polygraph test, four to six sensors are attached to him. A polygraph is a machine in which the multiple (‘poly’) signals from the sensors are recorded on a single strip of moving paper (‘graph). The sensors usually record a person’s breathing rate, pulse, blood pressure and perspiration. They can also sometimes measure someone’s arm and leg movements.
When the polygraph test starts, the questioner asks three or four simple questions to establish what normal signals are for the person being investigated. Throughout questioning, all of the person’s signals are recorded on the moving paper.
Both during and after the test, a polygraph examiner can look at the graphs and can see whether the vital signs changed significantly on any of the questions. In general, a significant change – such as a faster heartrate, higher blood pressure or increased perspiration indicates that the person is lying.
But critics say that it easy to beat lie detectors – simply by ‘lying with your body as well as your words’. If a person substantially increases their respiratory rate, blood pressure and sweat level while answering standard questions, their answers to other questions (whether they are truths or falsehoods) will seem true.
This was done in the film ‘Ocean’s Eleven’, and is usually achieved by pressing down on a sharp object such as a drawing pin during routine questioning. This will cause more perspiration or a faster heart beat which in turn bamboozles the lie detector.
But while this countermeasure (if properly applied) can be effective, polygraphers have developed counter-countermeasures for it – the simplest being to simply make the subject remove his shoes.
While both sides are in competition like this, the debate over the reliability of lie detectors continues. That is especially the case when people who are mentally ill are subjected to polygraph tests – because they do not know or cannot express the truth, the argument goes, they will hardly likely to be exposed as liars.
He then begins to list events he says will happen in the next 12 years, including the re-election of Donald Trump and the rise of AI.
Again, the interviewer asks if he is telling the truth and, again, the machine apparently records that he is.
But so-called Noah has received criticism from sceptics who claim the test was rigged.
‘All Apex TV does is flash an answer on the screen with a ding noise, that doesn’t truly validate the lie detector,’ wrote one critic.
‘You can see Noah fidgeting around with the monitors strapped around his fingers and I myself know from first hand experience that when you take a lie detector test you are supposed to sit back and remain completely still.’
Another added: ‘You need to show the name of the lie detector and go through the stages of setting up the test
‘2030 is not that far off so what was the name of the president he gave, [they] should be very much alive right now.’
Lie detector tests do no say if things are objective true, only that the person who is making the claim believes that they are true.
