The rods and pendulum augment the movement so that it can be easily seen by the person. Look up micro muscle movements on the web. I heard someone say once that that's how cops can sometimes tell somebody is lying, that is, by picking up on the subtle muscle movements of the face.

    There is a man by the name of Darren Brown who exploits all of this for his stage shows. Look him up, there is lots of interesting stuff he does that touch on the whole dowsing thing, even if he himself doesn't dowse; well, he kind of dowses for lost items by using people as the rods.

    As for the Quantum Physics stuff, read up on it. There is tons of stuff available on the web. Google is your friend.
    Interesting. I certainly believe that some people are able to read other people when they are lying, me being one of them This is face to face tho.

    I like the idea of a brain map of space. Dare I say Matrix.

    Hmmm so the dowsers are actually making the rods move? I thought dowsers claim they are not making the rods move. I have Even seen a few vids of dowsers trying to keep everything still as they walk to prove its the rods not them. If they have the power why not just walk right up to the treasure and say "there".

    I think humans can train their bodies to do superhuman things like in sports or the brain. As far as finding treasure with rods, who knows.

    At least the thread didn't turn into ww3 infact it almost has the atmosphere of my grandmas house lol.

    ANY TYPE OF TREASURE HUNTING THAT PUTS MONEY IN MY POCKET
    All i will say about dowsing is that i have done it and it has worked out well for me....... I don't look for water i find coins & jewelry ...And it works for me.............. I will not say any more about it here...... For there are two many that will say i am lying it can't be done ..... But i have proved to my self it does work ... For me it works..... For others it will work for some and it will not work for others...................

    I think it is real but I don't think it is any "talent" that someone has. It is mentioned in the bible and goes way back.

    I believe some folks can do that. I have actually seen them tell you how deep, and how much water would flow, and they were right. I have seen those same folks miss completely, too. I believe there's something to dowsing, but not everyone has the talent.
    Just like Texas in 1880.

    I can dowse under ground electrical cables, and water lines using two "L" shaped wires, but that is the extent of my ability...... I learned how aftrer losing a $20 bet to a contractor on a water company crew who bet me he could find the fiber optic cable I was there to locate with a Metro locator.......... He found it and I verified it with my locator... After that I used the technique to double check my locates...

    I went to that link you posted. It had some interesting points. If dowsing is real it could be demonic I guess. It certainly is an unexplainable "power" so who is to say. I have always felt that in life there is nothing for free, so if someone has tapped into dowsing "power" I wonder what they are having to give up for that power? I wonder if they are even aware that in order to get, you have to give. Doesn't seem like a fair trade, you have the ability to find water at the cost of your soul. I'll keep using the sink

    I have no idea if dowsing is real or not. Why are dowsers not filthy rich by finding all of the lost treasure. How come some can only find water and not gold. It seems like a bunch of hocus pocus to me, but if you are a dowser and you really really think you have the "power" I would suggest you go prove James Randi wrong and win his million dollar offer. You would never have to work another day of your life. Just my two cents

    Well if you know anything about ouija boards, I feel like it's along the same lines. It's a trick of Satan to lure people over into the occult. I don't want to make anyone mad here, but that's what I believe.

    No, dowsing is bunk. Here in Oregon people in my own family have dowsed for water and dug wells and struck water most every time. Thing of it is, there is friggin water everywhere......

    Put some rods in their hands and ask them to find some gold..... whole different story.

    Whole lot of excuses.... not buried long enough, stars weren't aligned, the moon is in Jupiter, solar flares, I dunno.... pretty lame if you ask me.

    One thing i always ask myself, if the makers of fancy dowsing equipment knew what they were doing, and dowsing really works..... why are they selling dowsing equipment?

    After all, they should be rich after finding all that buried pirate loot shouldn't they?

    Treasure4pleasure, jeffro and shoot, I couldnt agree with you more. If it is real it's wicked but more than likely its baloney.

    Why are these dowsers not the richest people in the world? Same reason the psychic Sylvia Brown hasn't won the lottery. Or go on the James Randi show and prove him wrong. It's more childsplay than anything or maybe just wickedness.

    How come everytime someone does a scientific study, these so called dowsers fail on bucket tests almost 100% of the time. I Just seen a special on it, not to long ago, and not one person that claimed to have the "gift" passed the test. As for it being mentioned in the bible, so is a boat that carried 2 every living thing on this earth to save them from a flood. Which means all the animals in the Americas had to swim across the ocean to get on a boat so they wouldn't drown in a flood. Maybe we shouldn't believe everything we read. If you do believe in it hit me up I have a fresh batch of snake oil to sell. It'll cure all you aches and pains. Honest.

    As I said, I can dowse electricial cables, telephone cables and waterlines, but that is the extent of it, I can't douse gold or treasure............

    I want to add to my post and say that I had two other lots subdivided right next to the one my neighbor found the place to pound the well. On the first lot the well drillers got a fail - I think 3gpm then we had a moderate success in another spot at about 8gpm. On the other lot they did succeed at also less than 10gpm - having to go down very deep. That was the result of random guessing and /or well drillers knowledge of what might be a good spot based on terrain.

    I believe my neighbor found the right spot somehow and something led him to find it - he said it was his dowsing rods

    Maybe because there is water all over underground. Dig deep enough and you are bound to hit it at some point right?
