No, Harry, the BS is coming from you. Here's your first post:
"I often wonder if any of the skeptics have actually tried using a
couple bent wires. They work for me but I don't base any decisions on
what they inidicate without other evidence supporting them. From
tests of a few neighbors, friedns and family it seems that they work
for at least half of anyone who tries it."
No mention there of working only when there are clues, just the blanket
statement "they work for me ... they work for at least half of anyone who
This was followed with a lot of "obviously you haven't tried it" directed at
In another post, you wrote "I have found things using them and I have had them
fail." No mention there, either, of dowsing working only when there are clues.
Just the blanket statement "I have found things using them."
And this: "The problem with that is they indicate in just one location. I can
stand in one spot, sway back and forth and they cross/uncross. Take

mile long from the spring up ontop the hill was when he had that old man
come out and 'witch' it for him. dug down to the line the first time.
There are multiple plausible explanations for that:
a) the old man who 'witched' the line is the same guy that *installed* the
line forty years before
b) dumb luck
c) get anywhere close and dig a big enough hole, and you're bound to hit it
d) somebody's lying
The fact is that when "dowsing" is tested under controlled conditions, NOBODY
has EVER demonstrated success at any rate greater than that expected by blind
If you think you can do it, go get your million dollars.
The most obvious explanation is that -- by your own description -- you were
out there _looking_for_something_. It's hardly surprising that you found

away from a million dollars. That's the reason I can't take your
story seriously - you might be lying, deluded, or just lucky.
If someone told you that they had been playing 21 at the church
