Die Wasser-Offenbarung

Seit Jahrhunderten versuchen die Menschen dem Wesen des
Wassers auf die Spur zu kommen und einige Wissenschaftler
und Philosophen konnten dem Wasser, auch schon in der Vergangenheit, zum Teil spektakuläre Geheimnisse abringen.
Viele dieser außergewöhnlichen Erkenntnisse wurden vergessen oder deren Aufzeichnungen verschwanden unter mysteriösen Umständen.

Neueste Untersuchungen und aufwendige Experimente scheinen jetzt zu bestätigen - Wasser ist mehr als nur eine Flüssigkeit, die im Verlauf ihres Kreislaufes, von Menschen, Tieren, Pflanzen und der Industrie genutzt wird.

Forscher haben scheinbar eines der größten Wassergeheimnisse gelüftet.
Wasser lebt und es hat ein Gedächtnis!

Wasser hat offensichtlich einen viel stärken Einfluss auf unser
Leben, auf die Umwelt und auf unsere ganz persönliche Zukunft, als bisher angenommen wurde.

In seinem Buch gibt der Autor, kurz und prägnant, die wichtigsten Erkenntnisse seiner Wasser-Recherchen wider. Durch eigenes Beobachten und Experimentieren, wird der Leser viele der hier aufgezeigten Phänomene bestätigt finden.

Als niedergelassener Kinderchirurg führt der Autor seit Jahren neben der medizinisch indizierten die rituelle Beschneidung durch und verfolgt die diesbezügliche Diskussion seit der Veröffentlichung eines Artikels zur Strafbarkeit ritueller Beschneidung durch Putzke, Stehr und Dietz im Deutschen Ärzteblatt im August 2008.
Von Beginn an beschäftigt ihn das issue zwischen der juristischen measurement und der gelebten Praxis eines jahrtausende alten Rituals.
Die aktuelle deutsche Debatte zeigt (in beängstigender Weise) die tiefe Kluft zwischen der Mehrheitsgesellschaft und den muslimisch/jüdischen Mitbürgern. Erschütternd ist die Offenbarung der Sprach- und Verständnislosigkeit insbesondere der jüdischen Gemeinde gegenüber. Das wirft Fragen auf und verlangt nach einer examine der Ursachen, sowie einem Zurechtrücken der vermeintlich wissenschaftlichen Argumentation. Dabei liegt es fern das Ritual einseitig zu verteidigen.
Nach einem historischen Abriss wird die Entwicklung der Debatte und der folgenden Gesetzgebung nachvollzogen, bevor fundierte Informationen aus kinderchirurgischer Sicht über den medizinischen und psychologischen Hintergrund gegeben werden. Es folgen juristische und gesellschaftspolitische Überlegungen in Anlehnung an die einschlägig publizierten Texte der meinungsbildenden Medien. Schließlich wird nach den Gründen für den problematischen Charakter der Diskussion gesucht um einen Weg heraus aus dem Stellungskrieg der Argumente zu finden und hinein in einen conversation des Verstehens zu gelangen.

Die religiös begründete Beschneidung wird aus den dargelegten Gründen weder prinzipiell abgelehnt noch wird sie als "nicht verhandelbar" rundweg akzeptiert. Damit drückt der textual content zumindest im Bereich der Buchveröffentlichungen zum Thema als einziger die Ambivalenz eines derartigen Konfliktes aus ohne sich als Lösung der einen oder anderen Seite zu zuschlagen.
