Also, you'd probably really enjoy the book. That, and Angels & Demons (also by him, and same premise), are two of the most entertaining books I've ever read. Most of my family is very religious, but they all enjoyed the book. I'm sure some of the info isn't true, and it has received a lot of flack from the catholic church, but I'd bet that it's no less accurate than the Bible.
Also there are numerous books that refute we landed on the moon, or that the holocaust ever happened. It's no surprise that many people ahve tried to make money off of "disproving" the DaVinci Code seeing as though the book is so popular.
way to high jack a thread honoring the pope j/k. i've actually never read the "code" either, but i didnt know that a majority of it was devoted to proving the catholic church a scam. i personally am not catholic, but from what i've heard the code tried to dispell all of christianity in general. i've seen some stuff about it on the discovery channel, lol, which tries to point out an intimate relationship between Jesus and mary magdelene? what is this world coming to
