Anyway, it's a story.  Kinda neat twist on the phrase "san greal".  Pure fiction though.



I liked the movie, but I don't believe anything coming from it:smileyhappy:


I thought Dan Brown said the book was entirely fictional? So, as to why people believe it, I have no idea.

If you didnt read the part about the book being fictional, its easy to see why people believe it.  He presents the book in a way that can convince many people.  Why else would he start off the book by writing facts, then follow it up with his "fictional" story.  I never saw the movie, however.  From what ive heard, it has an interestingly addictive plot.  At least its getting kids to read...

On new years eve, I rented the movie "The Da Vinci Code"  (I've read the book before, too), and I'm confused on how they verify their "facts" based on Da Vinci's paintings.  He lived over a 1000 years after Jesus Christ, so how does he know all this stuff, making his information, credible?


its a good movie:smileyhappy:
Starwars battle front 3 announced?

It's fictional, but hey.. so is the Bible. People think Dan Brown's books are actual information because in the front of the book, it says something in the sense of, "All accounts in the book are based on factual information". Most of the history is correct in his books, and the fictional twists he throws in are easily mistaken as right. But who knows, anyway? The book's interesting and a great read.

Religion's a taboo topic and not really allowed to be discussed here. There really was no reason to bring it up- Harry potter's a fictional book, and any other book that won't cause controversy could've been used as an example.
