Adam Hart Davies on James Randi's Oz dowsing test

Seems like a good moment to bring this up...

dowsing success to dismiss it out of hand, and I have seen a sensible
professor of engineering set up a successful investigative test.

Yes I do know about Randi's cheque, and I have also looked critically at
the footage of a massive dowsing test he carried out in Australia. In
that test he bamboozled the contestants with muddled statistics. They
did indeed show a significant effect, but he managed to flannel his way
out of it.

So I am not prepared to deny dowsing out of hand.
