The Da Vinci Code

Thursday, May 18, 2006

Ever since the book "The Da Vinci Code" is published and filmed, there have been many news article about it. Especially so when it was filmed into a movie, and I'm going to watch it this Friday. Some interesting stuffs that people do around the world to stop the movie from screening...

1) Legal Action: Top Vatican official said the film's insult to the faith may merit legal action to stops its dissemination. Previously i read in the papers also some top vatican official to the Pope ask people for their support to not watch the movie.

2) Counterprogram: In Sydney Australia, the theaters will show a brief Anglican Church video challenging the film, as a effort to get 10% of the city's populatioin to become church-goers.

3) Preach: More than half US pastors polled by Leadership (a Christian magazine) said they planned sermons, classes or seminar to discuss biblical and theological issues raised by the film.

4) Yes, Singapore has rate the film to be NC16, as it challenges the norm radical and might mislead the underage of the twisted facts.

Above are the many different actions that some tried to resist the screening, while some are taking constructive action to reform the negativeness of the show to something positive.

Personally I am not a church-goer, but the base foundation that I believe in is to be open to all possiblities. The book Da Vinci book/novel was the first english novel ever since I read in the past few years. I wanted to read more about it before watching the movie.

Many church believes that the film/book tarnish the church image, as it contains twisted facts. They are fearful that those non-believers will believe the film fiction. The television effect has mislead children with altered stories line in history, thus their concern is not groundless.

However I am more supportive in the fact that the mature adult should seek truth contradicting to believing everything from the show movie or holy scriptures or book. To believe blindly is akin to an act of copying or imitation. To seek the truth, learn it and practise is what make a faith more convincing to believe in.

Anyway regardless of the oppositions, I am still going to watch and enjoy the show as I enjoyed the book.

    Hello Sins and all,

    There is a way to verify the truth...

    Yes, the DaVinci Code is a novel. It is no more accurate as a literal version of history than is the New Testament. In other words, neither is the literal truth, which is a key fact of the story and ancient history. The primary sub-plot is about purposeful symbology being used to encode hidden meanings, exactly like the Bible and related texts. Arguing about whether the DaVinci Code, Gospel of Judas, or the Bible are accurate history is a Machiavellian red herring designed to hide the truth by misdirecting your inquiry away from the heart of the matter.

    Want to truly understand why we can't let the Vatican succeed at telling us what to think about ancient history? There is a foolproof way to verify the truth and expose centuries-old religious deceptions. It is also the common thread connecting why the ancient Hebrews, Yahad/Essene, Jews, Gnostics, Cathars, Templars, Dead Sea Scrolls, DaVinci Code, and others have all been targets of Rome’s ire and evil machinations. What the Vatican and its secret society cohorts don’t want you to understand is that the ancient Hebrew symbology in all of these texts purposely encodes and exposes the truth about them. Furthermore, the structure of ancient symbology verifiably encodes the rules to decode messages built with it. This is what they most fear you will discover.

    If the Bible represented the literal truth or even accurate history, there would be no need for faith in the assertions of deceptive and duplicitous clergy and their ilk. Wisdom and faith are opposing concepts, because wisdom requires the unequivocal truth where faith obfuscates and opposes it. Religion is therefore the enemy of truth and wisdom.

    It is undeniable the New Testament is framed by ancient Hebrew symbolism and allegory. The same is evidenced in the Dead Sea Scrolls, Gnostic texts, biblical apocrypha, DaVinci Code, and other related texts. All ancient religious, mystical, and wisdom texts have been shrouded in mystery for millennia for one primary reason: The ability to understand their widely evidenced symbology was lost in antiquity. How do we finally solve these ages-old mysteries? To recast an often-used political adage: It’s [the] symbology, stupid!

    It is amazing the Vatican still tries to insist the Gospels are literal truth. It is beyond obvious they are replete with ancient Hebrew symbology. Every miracle purported for Jesus has multiple direct symbolic parallels in the Old Testament, Apocalypse, Dead Sea Scrolls, and other symbolic narratives and traditions. This is the secret held by the ancient Gnostics, Templars, and Cathars, which is presented with dramatic effect in the DaVinci Code. None of these narratives or stories were ever intended as the literal truth. That is a key fact to unraveling ages-old mysteries.

    Likewise, the following Washington Post article ( The Book of Bart) describes how many changes and embellishments were made to New Testament texts over the centuries, unequivocally demonstrating they are not original, infallible, or truthful.

    It's no wonder the Vatican fears the truth more than anything else. Seek to understand the symbolic significance of my name (Seven Star Hand) and you will have proof beyond disproof that Jews, Christians, and Muslims have long been duped by the great deceivers I warned humanity about over the millennia. What then is the purpose of "faith" but to keep good people from seeking to understand truth and wisdom?

    Now comes justice, hot on its heels... (symbolism...)

    Not only do I talk the talk, I walk the walk...
    Here is Wisdom!!

    The organization, be it religious institutions or govern censorship authority, who request to ban the movie should trust that the public has the ability to judge for themselves.
