Unlocking DaVinci's Code: The Full Story (Sunday, December 19, 9 p.m. ET/PT)
Dare to explore the facts behind the best-selling book when the NGC presents "Unlocking DaVinci's Code: The Full Story." This two-hour special provides the most in-depth examination ever brought to television, including exclusive interviews with author Dan Brown who reveals the sources of his controversial assertions. The show also takes viewers on a guided tour inside locations claimed to hold the keys to the mystery. Was Mary Magdalene the wife of Jesus Christ -- and perhaps even the mother of his child? And are their descendants still alive today? Was this startling revelation protected by a secret society that included the likes of Leonardo DaVinci and Sir Isaac Newton? And did Leonardo leave hints hidden within his masterpieces?
HOW MUCH OF THIS NOVEL IS TRUE?
The Da Vinci Code is a novel and therefore a work of fiction.....
...My hope in writing this novel was that the story would serve as a catalyst and a springboard for people to discuss the important topics of faith, religion, and history.
I guess you haven't read the gnostic writings, which are so esoteric they are barely understandable.

I trust those who were with Christ and wrote about his life rather than those who adopted parts of christianity to fit in with their paganist beliefs. The DaVinci Code took much of its "truths" from Gnostics texts which were written primarily by unknowns or those who were trying to fit Christ into their paganistic beliefs. The Canons were written by those who were there and experienced Christ and the early church not by those who got second hand info and then incorporated thier cultism with Christian beliefs.
To take it as the Gospel (forgive the pun) is just ludacris and shows how you will believe anything.
