"Guess what?! I just finished the Da Vinci Code and---"
"Don't. Just don't."
A fact-based fiction book by Dan Brown. A stellar thriller that has been on New York Times Best Seller list for well over an year.
The book has stirred much controversy over the proposed theory with Mary Magdalene and Jesus.
Readers should realize that even though there is a vast amount of information, all that may seem factual maybe fiction.
I think The Da Vinci code is true~!
Actually no it's not, it's fiction.
Even though it is an extremly good work of fiction most of the history isn't true. The supposed history of the Priory of Sion is more or less a hoax; most historians willl tell you that there is little evidence it was even a thousand years old.
still a good book
After I had finished reading "The Da Vinci Code" and felt smart knowing everthing dan brown wrote, i went to wikipedia
to learn more about the priory of sion; turns out it was just a little supported theory.
A book written to show how little we know about religion. Very good book. By Dan Brown. Its a mystery about the holy grail and da vinci.
The da vinci code rocks
The book that suddenly makes everyone an expert on religion. A realization must be made that the Da Vinci Code is based on things we possibly know, but aren't sure, but quite probably could be true but not really.
Apparently by reading the Da Vinci Code in 2 weeks or so, I know more than historians who have been studying religion for years.
A kool book. Unfortunetly people don't understand that it is a ficticious work! Dan Brown said that it was fake, yet idiots still enjoy screaming about how it lies. People are constantly saying it's full of crap yet they don't get that it isn't real. What next? Are they going to start saying how Harry Potter is inaccurate? Infact the 700 Club
is talking about how fake it is right now.
Idiot: The Da Vinci Code is full of lies about jesus!
Dan Brown: Yes I know it is.
Idiot: Ahhhhhhh it's satan!!!
The Davinci Code is a book written by Dan Brown, though not using his own imagination. It is inspired by, and partially based on, two books written before his "work of art". It is a factually incorrect novel, put on the fiction shelf for a reason.
From the first page of the Davinci Code, you are hit with a lie wrapped in truth's clothing. Dan Brown creates this 'secret society' hidden by the Vatican, to be seen as a horrible and awful group. In truth, this secret society did exist - but not to commit crimes. Their goal was solely to help people in the way Christ would have wanted them to be helped, but in secret. They didn't want to make a name for themselves.
Second, you are lied to by having the "fact" that the Dead Sea Scrolls were found in 1950 and they contained secrets about Jesus, shoved down your throat. First of all, the Dead Sea Scrolls were found in 1947 and have NOTHING to do with texts called The Nag Hammadi (containing what is called the "Gnostic Gospels" by Dan Brown). Second, the Dead Sea Scrolls were written ONE HUNDRED YEARS BEFORE JESUS LIVED. How could these texts contain ANY information regarding Jesus' life?
Next, read the Nag Hammadi before you believe that they have anti-Christ-divinity writings in them. They only proclaim and renounce the divinity of Jesus, not denounce.
Also, the people who wrote these texts were BEFORE Constantine (the emperor who legalized Christianity). They were not of great influence - they risked their lives to s...
As I said in the Dan Brown entry, this book was based upon the book Holy Blood, Holy Grail, written in 1982. And it pisses me the fuck off every time some idiot sees the movie and thinks they are a fucking Religious Scholar, when they don't even know Dan Brown wasn't the first guy to say that Jesus was married to MM and they had kids, and the decedents walk among us today. Dan Brown is just a shitty fiction writer, whose books read like screenplays for a movie, and to sell more books, he copied someone else's ideas and made it into a fiction book because he's a no talent hack.
I saw The Da Vinci Code in theatres, now I think I'm an expert on Religion, but really, I'm just a moron.
