New PDF release: Teufelswerk III: Das letzte Geheimnis der grünen Scheibe?

By Paul H. Krannich

Dieses Buch ist ein Skandal! Und eine Sensation zugleich.
Naturwissenschaftlich sauber erarbeitet, ist es gezwungenermaßen politisch ziemlich unkorrekt. Es enthält gleich eine ganze Reihe von Tabu-Brüchen. Fragen werden gestellt – und beantwortet - die so bisher noch nicht aktuell waren:

Gibt es eine Verbindung zwischen der Nebra-Himmelsscheibe und den Pyramiden unseres Planeten? Führt uns das uralte Artefakt zu neuesten naturwissenschaftlichen Erkenntnissen? Beherrschten die weltweiten Pyramidenbauer wesentlich mehr als nur die Kirsch-Kernphysik? Oder kannten sie sich sogar in modernster Hochphysik aus? Reichte ihr Wissensstand weit über den unsrigen hinaus? Hatten sie eine Vorstellung von Einsteinscher Relativität? Gibt es etwas wirklich Neues aus der Vergangenheit? Ist die Lichtgeschwindigkeit tatsächlich die höchste Geschwindigkeit? Woher kommt die komische, unrunde Zahl der Lichtgeschwindigkeit? Warum kann es die Plattentektonik nicht geben? Wieso hält sich die eigensinnige Erde nicht an die Plattentektonik, obwohl ihr das die heutigen Geowissenschaften vorschreiben? warfare die Menschheit in der Vergangenheit schon einmal weiter entwickelt als heute? Haben uns unsere Vorgänger Neues Wissen vererbt, welches wir noch nicht kennen? Gab es eine uralte globale Hochkultur? Wurde im Altertum Raumfahrt betrieben … und used to be hat mit all dem der Teufel zu tun? Wie kommt guy auf solch scheinbar abstruse Gedanken? Und wie lassen sie sich stichhaltig belegen?

Das Schöne an diesem Skandalbuch ist, dass sein Inhalt aus naturwissenschaftlicher Sicht völlig korrekt erarbeitet wurde. Er ist prüfbar und reproduzierbar, wie sich das gehört. Insofern wäre es wünschenswert, wenn sich vor allem Physik-, Geologie-, Astronomie und anderweitig naturwissenschaftlich Interessierte ernsthaft und intensiv damit auseinandersetzen würden. Aber selbstverständlich ist auch jeder Andere dazu eingeladen, sich beispielsweise an hilflosen Widerlegungsversuchen zu beteiligen - oder sich einfach "nur" auf den tatsächlich neuesten Stand des Wissens über unsere tiefe Vergangenheit zu bringen …

Wir haben hier ein Buch über modernste Wissenschaft vor uns. In der Steinzeit und davor.
"Die Steinzeit warfare ganz anders" als wir uns das bisher vorgestellt haben!1) ...

1) "Die Steinzeit struggle ganz anders" ist ein Buchtitel von Erich von Däniken, der 1991 erschien und heute aktueller ist als jemals zuvor.
