Actually it's more of an example of how the power of suggestion can be very influential in your interpretive process. If you do not know about DaVinci's style of presenting an image like that, you could be convinced that Da Vinci expressed something he may never have intended.

I really liked the book. I thought it was interesting, I stayed up until 1:00 am until I finally finished it. Though, I kinda though the ending was too perfect for my taste.. it seemed kinda too easy. I think I was expecting more. =T

[Spoiler] How Sophie or was it Sophia? XD I can't remember, found her family seemed way too perfect to me. And how Langdon and her kissed.. that was just kinda tacky for me. [/spoiler]

Well the film is really getting hyped, this town is going to be ugly when it comes out. Well then again it may not, but I know that church in the last scenes has had a boom in visitors thanks to the book alone. The Cathedral here has nothing to do with the book, its all the film.

I want to be an idiot
And go to idiot land
An idiot bird in my hand
I'd walk like a total idiot
And sing like idiots do
And people would say "what an idiot,
He/She's an idiot through and through
And I'd plant an idiot's garden
And live in an idiot's house
A harmless grinning idiot
With my lovely idiot spouse.

People's skin is too thin, and religious radicals are just silly.

I don't believe that is fair. I don't think it is written just for atheists and has all of these strong anti-Catholic/Christian themes. It may have some, but religious radicals are treating it like Dan Brown is saying his books are pure fact and that the church is wrong and bad. That is like saying anyone who has written a conspiracy novel on the government doing unethical things behind curtains is against the givernment.

If i had to pick a forumer as a "kindred spirit" I suppose it would be Celes, but she has abandoned all for Anshi *cough* dry.gif

no, I am not defending to anybody, nor saying that it is specifically for them.

in addition those “supposed found books” are not written by the true apostles is some test.

no, because they were found in the Nile, those books are of such competing of Jesus therefore is pure…bullshit

in any case hopefully that as a result of this does not form problem, is what I think.

To reawaken this topic a bit... It's not really necessary to create a new thread for the movie, meh? I'm going to go and see it when it opens tomorrow, but I know that in some of your varied time zones it's already playing (for a while now in china!) and others, like Popogeejo have already seen it.

What are your opinions?

I've heard that it was really somewhat poorly done, but I don't know how much of that is just the critics blithering.

As for the book, my opinion is that it gives a lot of people a feeling of bein 'intellectuals' just beccause they're reading a book about history while keeping their attention by throwing in action bits. However, it was nice that it brought an undersupported theory into the public eye, though it did represent a lot of itself as pure, undisputed fact, whereas a lot of it is really conjecture based on and inference from a specualtion about a fragment of a parchment. It isn't all that factual... it's just another interpretation of events.

Symbology is grossly misused at some points also.

I'm going to see the movie tomorrow too! (Imagine that tongue.gif )

I thought the book was a fun read but didn't take it as facts. The fact that the author apparently believed all of the ideas in his book is odd, but it shouldn't detract from the book itself as a novel. Some of the ideas seemed a bit ridiculous, but it was still amusing for what time it took to read it. I didn't think it was all that amazing though.

As to the movie, I heard it was going to be bad, but then I've heard a lot of other movies were 'terrible,' and really liked them. Plus it has Tom Hanks! Which doesn't make a differnce for the basic quality, but it is a plus.
