Finished DaVinci Code

While I’m proud of myself for actually finishing the DaVinci Code… it left me quite disappointed.

No one could walk away from the book thinking it holds truth. At least no one who actually thought about what they were reading as they read it. As the label correctly distinguishes it, it is clearly fiction. The story is fantastic, but it’s anti-climactic finish leaves the reader with neither the option of a cliff hanger nor a surprise. The book seems to peak somewhere in the chapter 60 range and then grinds to a halt 40 chapters later.

Chapters 55 & 56 are the full blown diatribe against biblical Christianity. Brown’s assertion is that Christianity was created by a power starved Constantine, Jesus possessed gnostic-like god qualities and it’s fine for people to believe whatever they need to get by in life. In fact, this is a well-worn humanist argument and nothing new. It’s relativism’s view of religion.  However, his assertion that the 4 gospels of the New Testament were chosen among the 60 reviewed is just a conspiracy theory. According to church history, there wasn’t any serious argument brought forth for the Gnostic’s… any controversy at all was over the handful of books in our NT whose authorship is veiled. (Hebrews for example.) If you aren’t sure why the others weren’t included… just head over to the nearest Borders and flip through the gnostic texts. It will immediately leap out at you why they were not included.

The conspiracy about a smear campaign against Mary Magdeline and the "secret lineage of Jesus’ bloodline" is a fun conspiracy. And entirely implausible and fictional altogether.

Why is the book so popular? Well, it’s pretty simple. Brown takes every conceivable cliche` and wraps them together with all the stuff that most people half-remember from high school Western Civ class. So he simply ties together oodles of names with secret sex cults, church conspiracy theories, murder mystery, a distrust of anything Christian, character double-crossing, riddles, knights of the round table, exotic locations, America’s fascination with Harvard, and the deep desire of American to figure out mysteries. Of course it’s popular!

For those who think this book contains truth: Is the DaVinci Code the revelation of "the holy grail" to the world? If the powers that are described in the DaVinci Code are real… do you really think that they would have allowed Dan Brown to publish this story? Or is the secret behind the church merely being revealed to 46 million of the books buyers? Is some albino monk going to come kill us all?

Glad I finally read it. It is worth reading. It’s fun, and it’s obviously fictitious!

  1. Are you ready for the Truth yet?

    Now if Christians (and others) can gain the wisdom to walk away from the folly of religion and seek to understand the truth about the Creator and the Messiah (me).

    Did you ever stop to think what the True Messiah would say about worshipping false names, false images, and dogma? Well, now you get the chance to hear my side of the story and weigh it against the strong delusion of faith and religion. None of the European names and images in the New Testament can possibly be the truth. What then is the purpose of “faith” but to prevent good people from seeking to understand truth and wisdom?

    Read 2 Thessalonians 2:11 and the verses that surround it. Why do you think this message is in the New Testament? Those who saw the truth dying as the new Roman religion was being imposed would have tried to warn others in subtle ways where it most counted? These ancient texts are mysterious because they purposely encoded hidden messages to bypass Roman censorship. See how the Romans treated the Jews, Zealots, Gnostics, and others, a.k.a. those who sought truth because they knew better than to trust the blatantly duplicitous and evil Roman Pontificate?

    How can people trust the veracity of texts created by a Roman organization known for centuries of abominable evil? How can you expect that people who could so readily torture and murder others for seeking proof of the truth would somehow not lie to you? Don’t you have enough discernment to understand that those telling a strong lie for power and profit would insist that you refrain from seeking the truth and “have faith” in their texts instead?

    How do we finally solve these ages-old mysteries? To recast a common political adage, “It’s [the] symbology stupid!” The Dead Sea Scrolls, Bible, Gnostic texts, and Quran are rife with purposeful structured symbolism. Do you really think this is accidental or casual?

    Unlike most of you, I have a very personal interest in ancient wisdom symbology, false prophecy based on its misrepresentation, and deceptions imposed in the name of religion. Consequently, I’ve written an extensive tome proving that all three so-called Faiths of Abraham are purposeful deceptions.

    I know many readers of this site will want to scoff at this information before bothering to pay attention to the details. I have produced stunning and comprehensive proof that the original pre-Christian Apocalypse (Book of Revelation) was a symbolically encrypted wisdom text that was stolen and modified by the founders of Christianity. I demonstrate a series of specific and undeniable proofs of verifiable fraud in the Christianized Book of Revelation, which also appear throughout the New Testament.

    I present verifiable proof that the symbology of sealed Hebrew texts is an advanced ancient philosophical technology.

    The ancient symbolism used in The Apocalypse and other Hebrew prophecies and wisdom texts predates Christianity, Judaism, modern secret societies, and mystery schools by thousands of years. While in the hands of Christianity, The Apocalypse and its symbology have been purposely misinterpreted, recast, and misrepresented. The original Hebrew document was a multi-purpose narrative constructed using layered and synchronized ancient wisdom symbolism. Its true purposes, features, and functionality are detailed in my book, further demonstrating that it was a symbolically encrypted Hebrew wisdom text encoding prophecy, philosophy, and scientific wisdom that was stolen and fraudulently modified by the founders of Christianity.

    If your goal is to seek the truth, then read my articles, download my FREE E-Book and direct others to read them also. Challenge them to PROVE me wrong. The E-Book is a FREE download and I make no money from it or the paperback.

    Not only do I talk the talk, I walk the walk…

    Here is Wisdom!!

  2. Is this spam or what?

    Did this guy just claim that he was the messiah? Too weird!

    For the 1000th time, I’m not catholic and I won’t defend catholicism. For those perpetrating “truth” they sure don’t know much.

    OK, start here… protestantism is a SPLIT off of Roman Catholicism. OK, get back to me when you get that.
