Dowsing for Truth

dowsing for truth

Frank Mashenko came to us claiming to be able to dowse for hidden metal using two thin wires, not unlike coat hangers. As agreed in advance, we placed copper wire in one of several rolled-up newspapers (the others had nothing in them), and asked Frank to find the newspaper with the wire in it.

Frank complained that the building had too much interference from the electric outlets and plumbing, so we moved the test into the parking lot. Frank was still “getting interference,” so we hid the wire under rugs on a nearby lawn and Frank agreed to conducting the test there. He made six attempts to locate the wire – all unsuccessful.

Although Frank was unable to demonstrate any paranormal ability, we applaud Frank’s willingness to be tested — something few others have had the courage to do.

Our investigation of Frank was also featured in the New Times Article.
