Da vinci code apocryphal??

Well I read the book in flat 4 days time oh ok I ll be truthful I took 9 days and was left amazed as the author honourable Dan brown debunks so many myths surrounding Christianity and also others about (listing prominent ones ) opus Dei, museum lourve , Da vinci , Holy grail, Mary Magadalene and many others. The book is like a fast paced hollywood thriller no wonder Ron howard has already grabbed the book and right to direct the movie version of it with Tom hanks starring in it ......But what is most astonishing is authenticity is being attached to the each story the author describes..The historians have already cried foul after reading book and declared the book a pure piece of fiction .....but I dare to disagree as what we know about history is through written manuscripts which could have so easily altered by the kings when they commissioned writers to write about their kingdom and in that scenario the writers must have made friends with fiction to extol the particular King and disregard or belittle another one is definately possible so as to speak there are many facts which might be hidden from us ,,,,or which are known might not be true at all.....

so we never each archaelogy or manuscript discovery leads us to better understand or is swaying us from the actual facts about our past ....

time will tell or maybe not !

Do a little googling and you can see that most of the stuff that Dan talked actually existed.There is really a Opus Die HQ in Washington DC.

BTW,just read Angels and Demons.I loved it more than Da Vinci.Go grab and read it.
