Well Im shure most of you have read this, if not then you should, Its a good book.
I finaly got round to reading it and I really liked it.

Anyone see it as a fact book?
Anyone see it as a threat to their religion?
Anyone like it just for its fiction rather than the non-fiction?

I think it's over hyped crap.
The old brotherhood Dan Brown says in based on fact has been proven to be an elaborate hoax by the guy who made it. Alot of it is based of only half truths and down right fiction.
It poses no threat to religion which is a pitty and is given far to much attention.

So...
Anyone see it as a fact book? No.
Anyone see it as a threat to their religion? No.
Anyone like it just for its fiction rather than the non-fiction? Well seeing as it is fiction it can't be condidered non-fiction so therefore you can only like it for fiction.

Dan Brown is a hack who was smiled on by hype.

ha ha, well yes it is only Fiction, but some people see it as something like a true as true FACT book, so thatís why I didnít pot it in as I donít like to offend/annoy people without due cause.. XD

But I would like to say I liked the book as a fiction book, it was IMO well written, interesting and intriguing.

I wouldn't be nearly as anooyed with it if he hadn't said alot of it was fact when it plainly wasn't. Alot of people I knew who read the book think they're intectual becaue they read it.(I went to a crappy school where "the cat in the Hat" is considered difficult rolleyes.gif )

Well have you reserched the facts from the book that you see as false to prove his misconseption so you can prove him right, or was that a supposition again?

At the start of the book before the story he says the the Priory of Sion is a real organisation. It isn't. He's repeated his statment in several interviews.

Well they are trying to ban its aren't they? Fear that it'll make people question the church and all that. You have to be an idiot though if you would change your opinion that easily.

The true believer will face up to any challenges to his faith, not shrink away from them and try to blot them out.

I haven't heard of any banning attempts. I know they tried it with Northern Lights(The "His dark materials series") ut I don't think the Church would try that again just yet.

I heard my parents talking about the ban, the Church are just trying to ban it as usual...I mean it's really our decision what we believe in... not theirs

readers are irresponsible and tend to believe facts that they know are false if they are wrapped up in a nice "story"

I'm sure there are people who really believe in the idea of the Holy Grail being the bloodline of Jesus because of this book (as well as its predecessors). The whole idea of fixing the reference of the holy grail to a bloodline is historically weak.

Again, people in general are irresponsible regarding what they will and will not believe and what they allow to influence their beliefs.
