AMEN! It's about time that people accept that, in fact, "The Da Vinci
Code" is a book of fictions, not inspired by the True God, but
comprised of a clever concoction of facts but mostly theories put
together to make money, promote movies, and to be the new hot topic of
bloggers galore. Furthermore, a lot of his "facts and theories" are
imperfectly understood and, consequently, render a very imperfect
"gnostic" revelation. Besides, in the final analysis, you will never
find Truth in any form of written literature, not even the NHL et al.
but solely through experiential Gnosis. The written words have their
place, to be sure, but they are at best vague adumbrations of how and
what Truth might appear as.
It is one thing to say "The Word" but this mystical concept must never
be confused - not ever - with the written words of humans, be they
spiritual or secular or nearly brain-dead. Unless, at heart, we too
are become "bible-beating fundamentalists"? What divine Being ever
wrote anything down, other than the demiurge when it "inscribed" the
words of the Torah on two blocks of stone?
