Default Its a frickin Novel folks......

A pretty interesting article that sheds some light on this new sensation that is
supposedly searching for "the truth". Be careful what tries to pass as fact.

i mean, just because Dan Brown,Ron Howard, and Tom Hanks say so.........

I don't really think people that believe that the bible is historically accurate have any room to attack a fiction author. If more people cared about facts in this country, that guy who started a "creationist museum" that says that Adam and Eve rode dinosaurs (with saddles!) wouldn't have a pot to piss in.

Every time I read the Christian opposition to this movie, I have a good laugh. Like I'm going to trust a Christian ideologue that believes the earth is 6,000 years old - he's got as much credibilty as some hack Sci-Fi author. At least you know that the author's in it for the big bucks - the PHD that the article quotes is a professor of New Testament studies at a seminary - I mean, isn't that the same thing as being a professor of Literature? He's a glorified book critic.

I would agree however that the Da Vinci Code is a stupid, boring book - the movie doubly so.

Also: Just because Pat Robertson, Ken Hovind, and Jim Dobson say it, doesn't mean that it's true.

I thought the Da Vinci Code was a good read in the pot boiler vein, but by no means a well written book. All Brown's books follow the same exact formula, so much so that it's easy to identify the "bad guy" almost as soon as he's introduced. I personally like books that are based on puzzles, especially one's that deal with history.

As for how factual it is, who cares? It's a work of fiction. I also am wondering when are the right wing evangelical types EVER going to learn that their protests are nothing more than free publicity?

I didnt mean boycott the movie, I was commenting on the fact that anytime anyone does anything dealing with religion some group of people whether it be the Scientologists as of late of the Catholics with Dogma flip out and say its blasphomous. And in the case of the DaVinci Code, untrue. When in reality no one has a clue what actually happened, we have beliefs but no real concrete facts. As far as I know the book was published as a work of fiction so you can take that at face value. People just need to relax a little and not bitch so much about things that make no real difference one way or the other
