    [quote="arcadia"]I've never read it but I've heard about it.

    I've always been taught that Jesus didn't die on the cross and that he had taken some sort of chloroform to render him unconcious. He actually died in Jerusalem around about 73ad. His descendents live on. He was not the son of god but the son of man. He descended from a long line of people who originated from Mars. They mindled with the Egyptian way of life before moving on. Jesus was a Jew but not in the way Judaism is today.

    Where the hell did you grow up? It's difficult to diss someone for what they were taught ( you can't choose you're upbringing.) However, there comes a point when you have to look through all the bullshit people tell you, and use you're fucking brain. Why don't you try going to the library....(the place with all the books.) It is common knowledge that Jesus did, in fact, die on the cross that day... along with many others sentenced to death. Mars? Dude lay off the peyote!

    The Di Vinci Code

    I just finished The Di Vinci Code. I loved it made you really think what if.
    I truly think that anyone reads this book. They will leave wanting more I can't wait to see part two of the Di Vinci Code. Dan Brown is an Amazing writter. Hes putting his Idea out there for all to see. He isnt saying something that has been said for a long time now. hes just bring that out into the lite. I hope that people see that he is not dissing the catholics, christians or the jews. Its his own opinion on what he believe he believes in the Mary Magadelin. We should be greatful for a good book to read that makes us go WOW when you finish it or what it made happen for me I cried because the story intwined with the history aspect of the book made me go wow this guy is good. I can't wait to see were he takes us in his next book and I hope people see that this is his own Opinion and hes not trying to hurt anyone.

    Respectfully,

    Gabby

    I ran into this post completely by accident, looking for an answer to a mappoint question (Go figure!) but my attention was caught because I also just recently read the Da Vinci Code and was totally blown away by it. Like some other people here, I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN! I started it on a Sunday morning, and even though I had to work Monday, read it all through the night until I finished.

    Gabby, like you you, I was starving for more after reading it. You may be interested in looking at "Angels & Demons";after I went into work on Monday (delerious from lack of sleep but just ranting and raving what an awesome book this was!) my co-worker recommended to me; it is actually the prequel (kind of) to The Da Vinci Code. I guess it's not really a prequel, but it was a previous book by Dan Brown that had Landgon in it (TDVC talks about some of his previous experiences in Rome, and about Vittoria. It's not as good as TDVC, but it's still better than at least 90% of the books I've read in the past couple of years.

    Also, to the other people who enjoyed TDVC as much as I did (and here, I'll assume that most, if not all of you, are also computer nerds like me!) you might also really enjoy "Digital Fortress" by Dan Brown... it's a mystery thriller with encryption, codes, super computers, etc.

    To Arcadia

    Um, are you kidding me????

    First, Jesus died at the age of 33, hence he was already dead (and risen) by 73AD. Second, where oh where did you hear of the chloroform theory?? Not to be insulting to you, but I've never heard that. The cross is one of the major symbols of Christianity for a reason.

    I do realize not everyone believes Jesus was the Son of God, so I won't dispute that one.

    But Mars?? Really? I'm apt to believe maybe the pyramids were built with "outside" help, but I'm pretty sure Jesus wasn't from outer space.

    May I ask if you pracitice or beleive in a 'traditional' religion/denomination? I'm curious as to where you were taught these things.

    so what?

    I'm not sure if anyone reads this still or not, but I'm in search of some answers to a few questions that came up while reading the Di Vinci Code. I was raised Catholic, and I am now attending a Baptist church. I'm looking for validation that faith is real, and I'm not wasting my time. I'm new to actively questioning my beliefs, and I have to say that b/c I'm so "green" the book really threw a wrench into my brain. But here's a big question I have...

    What does it matter if Jesus WAS married? It doesnt change what happened...does it? I mean, Peter was married and he built the church.

    I'm interested in an intelligent discussion about this book, but I'm bad at checking message boards. If anyone is interested in discussing, please email me at wjucindiloo@yahoo.com. No spam please.

    Di vinci

    The truth is clear, it is all around us but yet we chose to let our pre-judgement take part. I'm not here to be one sided person (BIAS), but to inform the truth with evidence that very little people know about. If you believe in Satan you know that he is very powerful in humans by making them follow their desires (whilst doing immoral things) and not the truth.

    God is our greater.He created us when we were nothing. Christianity teaches peace and harmony. Yet despite of having so may positive things is lacking of 100% truth, to be honest.
    The respected Saint Pal, Matthew,John and Luke were some what those who people believe received the Holy Ghost, as you might agree. The big question here is so many christians believe that the Bible is the word of God without thinking properly. Why is this that none of the four respected men who received the Holy Ghost, haven't got identical script?
    Did God change his mind? No I didnt think so. So why is this?
    To be honest I find it difficult to believe in this. I have tried so hard in my life to find the real truth and I found out that the Bible was called INJEEL and was truly sent to Jesus (praise be upon him) at his time and not to Saint Pal by Holy Ghost. I do not seek to offend christians, but to listen to what I have to say.
    Islam religion known at this time as terrorist. Rightly so by us westerners. They remind us of Bin Laden, Sadam Husein .etc. September 11, where so may innocent people died for no reason at all, except that most of them were none-muslims in America. This is very wrong.
    I have studied both Islam and Christianity, so I know what I am talking about. During my studies of Islam, I found out that very little muslims were in fact acting uppon what had been sent to them from God through their Prophet Mohammed (PBUH). Before I started I had a belief that Islam copied their scriptures from Christianity. However, with in depth studies of the religion I found that this was not the case. As I came across the miricals of miricals, when I opened their Holy Book (Qur'an). I found that it had evidences of scientific fact, some of which recently found out and some still not known of. Not a single scientific fact in the Qur'an had been found to be false. If you ask me this religion can collaps easy with more than 20 scientific facts. It even challenges us to find any contradictions in it. if you do find any then the religion is wrong, this reminds me of fasification theory.
    I wish you take big part in the search of truth. But first study the Qur'an's evidence then judge it acordingly.
    Please open your mind and open your heart to reality and keep Satan away from your thought. This doest just concern Christians, agnostic but also atheists. As soon as you visit this website "www.islam-guide.com", if you are a good person you will truly testify that "THERE IS NO GOD BUT God AND MOHAMMED(PRAISE BE UPON HIM) IS THE MESSANGER OF GOD. Amen! May God show you the right PATH!
    Thank you for reading and I hope you reflect on what I have said. And also what Di Vinci Has to say On Channel 4 Tonight. [/u]

    DiVinci Code

    The book goes back 2000 years and claims that Mary Magdalene was the mother of Jesus' child. Parentage has been a matter of dispute throughout history. Our generation has developed a method of settling these issues. We use DNA tests. In the absence of such tests, a book based on this relationship is only an interesting speculation.

    Incidentally, who was the Beloved Desciple?

    Am I the only one?

    This thread is an interesting read but I can't believe there are so many people who think this book is worth reading, let alone good!
    Am I the only person who thinks The Da Vinci Code is a poorly written and contrived load of tosh with enough plot holes to make a string bag?

    Why so hard....?

    Why is it so hard to believe that this, in fact, could have happend? If you think about the church's rule in those times, and their reaction to people not following it, the penalty was very violent! Wouldn't it make sence to believe if the church told you " it didn't happen" then you would say it didn't happen. Also, male dominating times, if a woman had more of a relationship (friend or intimate) with Jesus than a man then of course when it was written, by men, it would make the male figure more promanent.

    Di Vinci Code posts

    These messages are interesting, even bizarre. I certainly wish that there was spell check available on e-mail; does anyone know how to spell correctly anymore?
