I posted this comment & reply on TNET, but it is applicable here as well. Dell
Mr. Xupz, I call myself a ProfessionalTreasure Hunter/Salvor. Do you consider that delusional?
In my occupation, Map, Photo, and Information Dowsing have proven to be invaluable research tools.
Your criticism of me expresses your lack of experience, knowledge and wisdom. There is much the human mind is capable of learning but,
"The door to knowledge and understanding is never open to a closed, or prejudiced mind" Dell
Once again, I'm a statistician. You do have some concept of what we do in our jobs yes or no? This is a serious question, I would like hear what you think statisticians actually do then have the balls to call me "delusional". I'm not the one who spends more time defending your wizard tactics to the death and can't even PROVE anything. So who's the one who's delusional?WOW! I didn't expect my size 16 hillbilly snake squashers which support my Cranium computer, would be stomping on a statistician's intellectual egotism. It appears a statistician can make errors also. No where in my comment do I suggest you are delusional. That is an inference you apparently tagged for your self in your emotion.
You are correct on the lack of experience. I have never dowsed. I have also never once seen any studies or experiments conducted which prove dowsing in any shape or form. Take a look at all the dowsers here. Not a single one of them has proven ANYTHING. Most of us are here to share our personal experiences with Dowsing. (It's a Dowsing forum) Your expectations of us on a public forum may be unrealistic. What proof of each of our individual experience would you have us provide? Certainly, nobody has asked you proof of your ability as a statistician.
Instead of them trying to figure out ways to validate their claims, they just simply state "oh you don't understand, I have a power". I can't speakfor other Dowsers, but I am certainly not endowed with any special power, or gift. In my experience, any one with intelligence can learn to develop their mind to Dowse with a degree of accuracy. It's a slow meticulous learning process and requires patience and practice to become profecient
They have and will fail every single time because dowsing is a joke. My claim is that dowsing is 100% completely false and it is put forward by a bunch of delusional people who are either uneducated, delusional, or scamming. Feel free to prove me wrong, it's just as arbitrary as any of you claiming to be able to dowse yet can't prove anything. Your opinion is your own, and apparently has no basis since you have never learned to Dowse and speak from personal experience.
In academics and research, if you made any claim this ridiculous you had better be able to support it with data.
In academics, or on this forum, I don't make any claims that I haven't experienced first hand, and many of those events have been witnessed and photographed by observers.
"ProfessionalTreasure Hunter/Salvor" What the hell degree is that? Oh, it's an "occupation". Where exactly does dowsing qualify as a research methodology? Research through dowsing provides me a starting point to search for a specific anomaly
Stating that I lack knowledge and wisdom followed up by an irrelevant quote is ignorant to say the least. Regarding Dowsing, by your own closed minded comments it appears to be a truism
Once again a dowser resorts to using a broad philosophical argument regarding a "prejudiced mind". Here's a quote of my own:
?A judicious man uses statistics, not to get knowledge, but to save himself from having ignorance foisted upon him.? - Thomas Carlyle
That quote is spot on. Now how about after 15* posts one of you dowsers actually link me to any experiments conducted, data, methods used, anything that has some actual DATA regarding performance measures on dowsing. I prefer to honor what Dowsing has proven to me in the field to be fact, rather than armchair statistics]
However, I would also be interested in stastical data about my own limited Dowsing ability. Perhaps I could provide you with the circumstances of witnessed and photographed finds from actual Dowsing events, and you can provide me the statistical odds of probability of coincidence.
Also will someone please list some "excuses" that may interfere with your so called dowsing abilities No excuses! Dowsing, may continue work for me, or it may not. I don't control the results. Each time I Dowse a location, or Information, I have no way of knowing if the target is going to be there until I see the physical results.
