I think the problem is Mat Maniac - 27/04/2004 01:48:31 AM

that too many are taking his artisticly licened stretches as Fact and are getting caught up in a heresy without looking into the churches teachings.

I've Read Angels and Deamons by Dan Brown and found it to be an interesting read, but I do have reservations about recomending it because mixed in with the truth aspects is a fabricated coruption in the church perfectly fiting the views of Vatican conspiracy theory believers.

Also the book (Da Vinci Code) starts with the little "Fact" section and in there it claims that the secret society did exist even though the only record of it was in a set of forged documents (not a very trustworthy scource if you ask me).

I would say Dan Brown is a good writer but in his areas of research he takes what helps his story even if it is iffy. This is fine for fiction but everyone should understand that if in doing so he goes into touchy subjects the truth will be defended so the impresionable people don't get mislead by fiction.
