By Peter Hubral

Die moderne Wissenschaft reicht nicht aus, um die 7000-jährige hypothesenfreie Dao-Lehre zu entdecken und zu verstehen.

Sie liefert das älteste und gleichzeitig modernste Verständnis der Schöpfung.

Ist guy damit vertraut, so entdeckt guy sie, wie Peter Hubral überzeugend zeigt, in den alten Weisheitsschriften vieler verloren gegangenen östlich-westlicher Kulturen. Dazu zählen die Werke der Pythagoreischen/ Platonischen Schule und biblisch-gnostische Schöpfungsmythen.

Der Autor erklärt, warum die Dao-Schöpfungslehre nicht nur geheim und universell, sondern auch natürlicher und wahrer als die vielen, aus ihr hervorgegangenen Mythen und die moderne Evolutionslehre ist.
