Da Vinci Code

"'The Da Vinci Code' is a clever and dangerous book suffused with lies, distortions, Satanic imagery and historical inaccuracies, all designed to cast doubt in readers' minds about the deity of Jesus Christ," said Robert Knight, the director of the CWA's Culture and Family
The book is FICTIONAL It says so in the cover where you can find the words "a novel". A novel according to wikipedia is "an extended fictional narrative in prose." And fiction is "storytelling of imagined events and stands in contrast to non-fiction, which makes factual claims about reality."

How stupid is this brouhaha? How stupid are experts who dispute assertions made by a fictional book? And how stupid are organizations trying to stop the movie version from being shown in the Philippines?

To quote Albert Einstein
"Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the former."
