I'm not at all surprised, Nico!!
My very first experience of dowsing was at a workshop run in SW London by a master dowser who has since become a good friend. There were about 15 of us, and he eventually took us out to a field nearby & said that there was an underground waterway somewhere there, and we were going to find it. We raised eyebrows, as we were all rank amateurs. He lined us up in a straight line at one end of the field, each with dowsing rod in hand, and we started walking. I was with a friend who was a complete sceptic (like yourself!). After about 25 - 30 paces, all of a sudden, the rods of every single person crossed decisively at the same time & we all stopped dead in our tracks! My friend looked astonished & kept saying to me "I didn't do that!" - as did many of the others!
I called it the Death of a Sceptic!

I find it a little strange that you 'believe in' magic, but not in dowsing - even though it's a kind of magic in its way! Believe me, even the most dyed-in-the-wool dowsers don't know how or why it works! And 'ancient Dragon lines' are just a description (as we use the term ley lines), not an explanation.
You seem to think people can find energy lines 'because they know they are there'. This doesn't hold up, I'm afraid. Who discovered them initially??
When I first used dowsing rods as a practising healer, it was at one of those mind-body-spirit fair thingies. A middle aged gent - very tall & healthy looking - saw the rods & asked me what they were for. I told him, and he said "well try them on me!" So I scanned his body from top to bottom, asking the rods to show where he had a health problem(s). When I got to the level of his knees, they crossed immediately. I told him it seemed that he must have some kind of weakness there - and he looked astonished!! He said he was having big probs with them and was due for an operation on one of them very soon!! Now how did I 'know' that?? I'd never seen the man in my life before!
So there ya go - take it or leave it!
(I don't know what I'm doing here....I should be off meeting a friend to go to the London Wetlands Centre any minute now! Seeya later! )

Interesting little experiment.

And that was exactly my point, the human factor.
Bravo for doing this experiment Merlyn!

Then I took a small tube and a level attached, and did it again. The rods did nothing when held in this level tube.
