In my experience more often that not, people "knocking on wood" tend to tap their own head.
There are line from a poem by Chesterton that seem apposite:
...We lived to see God break their bitter charms.
God and the good Republic come riding back in arms:
We have seen the City of Mansoul, even as it rocked, relieved--
Blessed are they who did not see, but being blind, believed.
