Bored of Da Vinci

  Everyone is writing about this movie that I decided I should add my two cents as well. First let me start off by saying that I have not read the book or seen the movie. I was never into mysteries. For those of you that are interested in the Da Vinci Code this is your spoiler alert(stop reading), if you want to know what it is all about read on .

    The whole premise of Da Vinci Code is that  Mary Magdalene was the wife of Jesus and was in fact pregnant with his child at the time of his crucifixion, and that the church has been hiding this secret for two thousand years.  So there you have it, that is the big secret. Should you spend time reading the book or watching the movie is up to you. Like I said earlier I was never into mystery novels, and I am even less interested in novels, that base themselves on quasi-fact.

  I will not scream that the book is sacrilege or anything like that. I am no expert in theology or theological cover ups and the reasons for them. By birth I am Roman Catholic, but I do not actively practice any religion. I do believe in a higher power but have no real name for it. This book will not answer any big religious questions for anyone I think.

   If some people are looking for that mystical answer, the Da Vinci Code, will probably just confuse you more, remember it is fiction, just a story.  Religion is a personal thing and looking for answers in fictious novels, that claim to be based on some fact, is not the solution.
