Dismantling the Da Vinci Code
So what’s the problem with The Da Vinci Code? It begins on page one with the statement, “Fact. All descriptions of artwork, architecture, documents, and secret rituals in this novel are accurate.” If the historical claims in the story are true, then Christianity is a fraud built on lies and deceit. But the claims in the book are simply not true. The story includes both minor errors and major ones, which don’t matter if The Da Vinci Code is fiction, unless you claim that it’s all fact. From the Sacred Feminine and Priory of Sion to the counsel of Nicaea and Jesus being married, these errors when added up make for bad history, but great fiction. In this fast-paced message David Moore lays the story and facts out side by side so that you can dismantle the code for yourself.
