By this logic titanic " worked fine " after it was hit by an iceberg, it's just that it sank.Klara Meison wrote:You seemed to miss the point. You enter a room, and see a person. You cast detect evil, and it returns " yes, evil ". Is the person actually evil or just under a spell making him detect as such? If your testing equipment is 100% accurate, there is 0% chance it is giving you a false reading, so the person is definitely evil. Except, obviously, that is not true.
No, I understood your point perfectly. There is still nothing wrong with the testing equipment. "If I can fool the equipment, then the equipment is flawed" is not correct. If I put a piece of uranium inside a Geiger counter, the equipment still works fine, even though it's always detecting radiation.
...Well, no. Exposing the gieger counter to a known source of radiation, like say a piece of Uranium, is part of the how it's supposed to be used. You've just source checked your instrument.
