    Most Christians i ask about this seem to either not know what im talking about, or say something to the effect of "Well if God wanted it in the Bible it would still be there. They need to realize men will makes things say what they WANT things to say.

    Yes, it's all true. That's why it's listed in the FICTION section at the bookstore. :rolleyes:

    you mean the idea of Jesus having children?
    well lets see...
    could Jesus have had children in his lifetime? Entirely possible...
    could someone be walking around w/ a piece of this man in them at the genetice level? maybe...
    this is all based on the idea that A) jesus was a real person and B) his blood line has not been killed off in the past 2000 years...

    but i think the ideas presented in the Da Vinci Code...well lets just say they stretch a little bit far.....

    I'd love to the see the references to non-existent books too. And while you're at it, how about some sources for your assertion that the Council of Nicea destroyed Scriptures? That certainly isn't in the acts of the council.

    Now, if you're referring to deuterocannonical books, most of them do exist in the Roman Catholic Bible, a few more in the Orthodox Bible and even more in the Ethiopian Bible. They all still exist, Nicea had absolutely NOTHING to do with setting the canon, and the fact that you can't find books in a Protestant Bible really is no evidence that it isn't part of the Christian Scriptures.

    Luckily we Orthodox, Oriental Orthodox and Roman Catholic Christians do not believe that the Bible is the sole basis of the Christian faith - we have Holy Tradition as well, and there is no evidence in that to suggest Christ was married or had children. The most laughable thing I can see about the Da Vinci code is that it revolves around a Roman Catholic conspiracy theory. If that were true, how come we Orthodox and the Oriental Orthodox both appear to have been 'duped' by it too? After all, neither church accepts the authority of the Papacy over them, and nor have they ever done so.

    Yes, the Priory of Sion exists (for jewscout's edification, they're a secret society that believes the Merovingian kings of the Franks were descended from Christ) but so does the Flat Earth Society. The mere existence of a way out group doesn't mean their beliefs have any validity.

    Read the books in this link. Although not mentioned on the site, these books are thought of by some to have been removed from the original bible by Constantine.

    It is perfectly normal for one who believes in the bible to also believe that it has never been altered. It is not, however, realistic, to assume that humans will not attempt to warp things to say what they wish it to.

    Have you not read the book in question?
    You should read it before you debate about it.

    It isn't what they are called. That is one of the fictional parts.

    i think i can debate about whether or not this book holds any substance regardless of whether or not i've read it. You're asking about the ideas of the book not about the plot or character development. The ideas i know enough about to know that the book is right where it should be...in the ficiton section of your local library

    Scott, my priest told me that the story of Noah, and Jonah, and others, were just stories, and did not really happen. Is this the way all Roman Catholics are taught, or was this just the opinion of one priest? And if you believe that the story of Noah was not an actual event, wouldn't this mean that the Bible is also "a work of fiction".

    i think there's a difference between religious scripture and the fables this book is loosely based on
