In the over 100 years that finger and palm prints have been compared, no two fingerprints have been found to be the same, including the fingerprints of identical twins. The chance that two persons have been born or will be born with the same fingerprints continues to be proven as near zero. The reliability of fingerprint identification is supported by the theories of biological uniqueness and permanence, probability modeling, and empirical data gained through the many millions of fingerprint comparisons conducted by experts in countries worldwide, assisted by computer programs designed to detect similarity among fingerprints in huge government fingerprint repositories.
