    HINDI what? Hindi true? Hindi fiction? :confused:

    :lol:

    Dan Brown himself said his book is a work of fiction. the only allusion he makes to it being "true" is when he said that his research "bears merit." other than that, Mr. Brown never makes any categorical claims to his writings being truth.

    the question is, are you going to take the author's word for it, or should one insist on his/her own impressions? ;)

    From Wikipedia:

    Priory of Sion

    There was much speculation as to just what the Prieur? de Sion or Sionis Prioratus is. In its English translation it is usually rendered as Priory of Sion, or even Priory of Zion. It was an elusive protagonist in many works of both non-fiction and fiction, and it had been characterized as anything from the most covertly powerful secret society in Western history to a modern Rosicrucian-esque ludibrium but in fact it has been exposed as an elaborate hoax.

    Priory of Sion is NOT a hoax. There was a special on EWTN about the shroud of Turin, saying that the Priory were once the guardian of the said shroud.

    But if the shroud is a hoax(as what non christians believe), well...

    PRIORY OF SION: THE FACTS, THE THEORIES, THE MYSTERY

    http://www.fiu.edu/~mizrachs/poseur3.html

    "Is there any basis to these claims? Here is what it is apparently true: there was indeed an Order of Sion based on Mt. Sion, and according to a papal bull of the 12th century, it had monasteries and abbeys elsewhere in Palestine (in particular, Mount Carmel), in southern Italy (Calabria), and in France. There is little in the official histories linking Godfroi to this order, but he is said to have founded the Order of the Holy Sepulchre, whose relationships to these other orders (the Temple and Sion) are unclear. And the official histories do not indicate any overlap between these monks and the soldier-monks of the Knights Templar. The Order seems to have occupied its "mother" abbey, Notre Dame de Sion/St. Mary of Mt. Zion, built on the foundations of the original apostolic Cenacle or Coelaneum, up until around 1291 or so, when like many Crusader holdings, it was overwhelmed by the Moslem onslaught. It actually was in the hands of the Franciscans for several more centuries, until it finally was lost to Christian ownership and was converted to a mosque. '

    Why am I not surprised. Of course, any christian website would dismiss Da Vinci Code as a hoax/fiction!

    Actually, the actions of the modern Catholic Church concerning the Shroud show a great deal more openmindedness than what you credit Christians with.

    God I hate getting into pointlessly antagonistic and irresoluble arguments.

    it was in an interview, kaya lang it was on a site i browsed while surfing. can't remember the URL, sorry.

    but as far as memory serves, I do remember that Dan Brown has only gone so far as to say that his research deserves "merit," and that the ideas presented in his book aren't original to him. He's never claimed it to be completely factual outright, although i think he personally believes his own writing, or at least the basis for the writing.

    anyway, it's easy to prove that it's a work of fiction. somewhere in the book, the novel states Leonardo da Vinci's "The Virgin of the Rocks," which in the Louvre, is "a five-foot-tall canvas," even though a quick check on the Internet or in an encyclopedia shows that it is actually six-and-a-half feet in height. if it's a factual book, Dan Brown sure isn't careful about his facts. and just imagine: if he was inaccureate about something that's so easy to check, then what more his obscure references? :confused:
