dont worry im one of the rare ones too. the funny thing is though, i am really into religious conspiracies and stuff, but my fascination with the mary magdalene and jesus stuff took place before DVC when holy blood holy grail was around. even then, i didnt find it that interesting. dan brown basically took an old hypothesis that has been around and made it for the masses.
anyways, has anyone seen the one show on the history channel where they actually try to prove whether jesus's descendents are the merovingians? i think its digging for the truth or something, but they located a tomb of a really really old merovingian royalty and was able to extract DNA from one of the bones. and they tried to match it up with middle east-israel (jesus's people) DNA and i think they actually concluded that the royalty indeed could be a descendent of jewish origin.
although i havent read DVC, from what ive noticed, i think dan brown did a good job of combining all these elements that already had a mysterious and clandestine reputation such as templar knights, PS (which is most likely fake), the insiders at vatican, etc. to weave a interesting story for the masses. kudos on him for a good business move, but minus points for not giving props to holy blood holy grail.
