[I think the idea that stabbing a soundpost will have an acoustical effect can be fairly easily verified. Start with a solid soundpost measure it's resonance profile, stab it and measure again. If there is no change then the likelihood of it changing the sound of the instrument is near zero.
I would be seriously surprised if there's any change, after all no wood is removed, neither stiffness, mass nor damping properties of the post are significantly changes by stabbing.
I believe the scientific method calls for hypothesis testing, peer approval etc.
