every religion is a rip off of something else.
this especially true with symbology...
the devils pitchfork is a rip off of poseidons trident- which the catholic church put a spin on, so as to label anyone who believed in pagan gods and
goddesses as heretics.
the wise crone's pointed hat is now the same hat we associate with witches.
I used those as my examples, because not only are they in "the da vinci code" so they are fairly recognizable, but they are fact.
every aspect of catholicism is copied from somewhere else.
I'm trying to come up with some more examples. but it's late. and Conan is on.
great post BTW
