Wow, what a doubter!

Hi all.
I've just been reading an online article about dowsing and thought I would post a link to it here...

(ed - link updated - GG 1/12/17)

I was amused by the writer asking for scientific proof, and when such proof was offered (see comments section at bottom of page) in the guise of a ten year study by the German Government the writer accused the authors of the report as being biased!

There's no pleasing some folks... :lol:

Doubtful News is a blog produced by the "Skeptical" movement in America. What did you expect?

The studies referred to are those done by Prof. Hans Dieter Betz see this thread:

Contrary to what she says, the JSE IS peer reviewed. The editorial board has a dozen PhDs. How can she know there
is "clear bias" when she hasn't read the paper? And because it doesn't say what she believes it
should, it can't be a peer reviewed journal!?!?! Circular and tautological.
