decoding da vinci

"The DaVinci Code" movie will open soon. I will give it precisely the same careful attention I gave to Dan Brown's book -- I will carefully avoid seeing it if at all possible.

But it's hard to ignore the hype about it. I frankly don't quite get why people are so hung up about the controversial points in the book -- you know, the idea that Christ was married and had kids, and that His descendants live among us, and that the people of Opus Dei are a bunch of reactionary nut jobs. Hey folks -- it's fiction. You know, that means it's made up? Like "The Lord of the Rings." Except for the bit about Opus Dei, that's true -- they are reactionary nut jobs.

Besides, Dan Brown's research didn't go far enough, because if it had, he would have discovered what I have learned -- Christ was an alien who traveled back in time and space to visit Earth. Unfortunately, his settings were off and instead of arriving just in time to watch Babe Ruth hit his home run against the Cubs in the World Series and satisfy for himself whether or not the Bambino called that shot, he ended up in the Roman Province of Palestine. But he made the best of it and enjoyed his gig as Messiah, and now that he is back in his true home on planet Qwerty, he is getting rave reviews for his excellent adventure.

At least, that's what I read on the internet somewhere.

I haven't read the book, but am planning on seeing the movie and then read the book. From the plethora of people I know who've read the book it is more than just guess-work about Jesus as much as it is just a good book. *not to pun the bible

However people who are caught up in the controversy crack me up. Even Dan Brown has stated it as "fiction" but that the documents he writes about in the book exist. There is a lot of theory that a Frenchman created many of the used documents and hid them in the French Archives only to make it look as if he had lineage to a royal bloodline. Maybe Brown believed all of this to be fake.

Anyway... Jesus and I are going for coffee... he likes Starbucks' mocha latte myrrh.
