the real davinci code

Dan BrownI watched The Real DaVinci Code on Discovery last night. It’s the first DaVinci code show I’ve seen where they seriously explore the facts behind the book and conclude that Dan Brown didn’t do his research well enough. He holds that the Priory of Sion, a key organization in the book, does in fact exist as he describes it. The show reveals the hoax behind it.

With the movie coming out next year, this show is worth watching, and it is good to be up on the facts. The show will be on Discovery again later today, and then in looks like they are rebroadcasting it again on some of the channels in the Discovery family in the coming days.

    The Discovery Network did a pretty good job exploreing the scam behind the DaVinci Code. I wish Dan Brown would have come on the show, it leads an idea that he may well be hiding to avoid bad publicity for the movie.

    Please correct me if I’m wrong but isn’t the book fiction?

    I didn’t want to watch it but Sean got me into it. It was amazing to see how fiction can be interpreted as real by so many people. Oh and Dave, yes, but Dan Brown swears that all the organizations and rituals behind the book are factual. Except he missed that the Priory of Sion is a real fictional organization. (Oxymoron I know)
