Are the fans of the da vinci code stupid? Hard to tell, but it´s plain to see that the author of the book is. The book is full of obvious lies and the historical facts are not facts at all but plain fabrications, a few of the most obvious ones are the dating of the gospels, the number of gospels in existence and what is contained in the dead sea scrolls. The gnostic gospels are 100 to 200 years older then the canonical gospels, there were not 80 gospels to chose from when selecting the ones for the new testament, possibly 30, and the ones that were not chosen were simply not consistant with the earliest ones, which are the ones of the new testament. The dead sea scrolls have nothing to do with christianity, they are strictly jewish scriptures. These are just three things that are completely wrong, there are hundreds in the da vinci code, most of which are as easy to verify as the ones i just mentioned, in short... if you read the book and take it seriously, then youre stupid, if you read it as fiction then you may not be.

Ah yes.. i forgot the best bit, at this page http://www.danbrown.com/novels/davinci_code/bibliography.html the author lists his references for the book, one of which is "The Dead Sea Bible" by Martin G. Abegg
The funny thing is that Martin G. Abegg never wrote a book by that name as you can see @ http://www.twu.ca/Biblical/Faculty/abegg.asp
Maybe looking more at Mr Browns reference material could prove interesting?

Feffron.... its a fictional book, yikes, I'd hate to see how uptight you get with the geographical 'inaccuracies' of Lord of the Rings or something.
I loath the book being treated as a history lesson more than I loath Dan Brown plain literary 'talents'

The Da Vinci Code Receives a Much Needed Laugh

CHICAGO, IL—JULY, 2006— In the midst of The Da Vinci Code hysteria, a theatre group in Chicago has opted for the hysterical and put together what they deem to be “a much needed parody”.

Da Vinci Code 2: Electric Boogaloo is scheduled to open mid-August and run through mid-September in Chicago. This campy, witty and irreverent look at The Da Vinci Code pokes fun at The Da Vinci Code tale itself as well as those involved in creating and opposing both the book and the movie. Devout Christ followers, devout Da Vinci Code fans and those who know nothing about either will find it enjoyable, amusing and even a bit thought-provoking.

Matthew Moran, Founder and Artistic Director of Only a Stranger Productions, encouraged award-winning playwright John Cosper to write a parody on The Da Vinci Code in response to the overwhelming rhetoric being dished out by both Da Vinci Code fans and opponents, alike.

“It’s time to laugh about it,” said Matthew Moran. “Controversy, although stirring and powerful, can often leave us more hurt than helped and more confused than informed. Laughter and love, however, can break down barriers and bring healing. In Da Vinci Code 2: Electric Boogaloo we give people of every viewpoint an opportunity to join together for an evening of theatre where they can shake hands and laugh the night away. Even if you don’t know a thing about The Da Vinci Code you will still have a thoroughly enjoyable time!”

Only a Stranger Productions was founded as a way to broach important issues facing the religious world and provide a beacon of hope through entertaining and provocative Christian theatre.
