This isn’t the first time a religious book has crossed over into the mainstream. But I have to say that The Da Vinci Code certainly has taken in a relatively high percentage of the gullible. And now here comes the movie, which will certainly be a blockbuster.
The question arises, “Should those of us who are atheists debunk The Da Vinci Code?” I say no. Since “Jesus Christ” is a fictional character in the first place, debunking Da Vinci would be like debunking a book that claimed a secret cult was trying to protect the descendants of Frodo.
