Also, a lot of ultra-religious people tend to conflate agnosticism with atheism. This would complicate matters enormously.

If an agnostic is asked, "Do you believe in God?" his or her most truthful answer would be, "I'm not sure." (Though I've known agnostics to have days of pure faith and days of pure disbelief.) But since an agnostic would have to answer yes or no on a polygraph test, either answer would be likely to result in a physical reaction, thus stimulating the polygraph machine--because both complete belief and complete disbelief would be untrue.
