This is a blog to discuss philosophy, chess, politics,
C. S. Lewis, or whatever it is that I'm in the mood to discuss.
What I find amazing about Blomberg's critique is that he misses the easiest target which most clearly shows the nature of the claims in _The Da Vinci Code_--the Priory of Sion was a hoax by a Frenchman named Pierre Plantard, who planted fake documents in the Biblioteque Nationale in Paris; that hoax was taken seriously by Baigent, Leigh, and Lincoln's bestseller _Holy Blood, Holy Grail_, and that book is the basis of the vast majority of the claims about Jesus in Brown's novel.
An easy target, certainly--but not one pertinent to Blomberg's topical focus.
