You make a good point there about where following the way of Brown's "sacred feminine" would lead. Though I haven't read the book, that's the impression I got from seeing it summarized and exposed in the latest Tabletalk.

I also think that you may be onto something (namely, the derivative and pedestrian nature of Dan Brown's spirituality), in that sacred-feminine/fertility-cult/earth-goddess worship is simply the default doctrine of the sinful mind. Ho-hum, nobody needs a guru to lead them there, Danny boy.

Incidentally, I've noticed that you don't get as many comments as the Craw. I just wanted to let you know that I read and appreciate your posts nevertheless. Keep them coming.

Me too.

Seriously.

Thanks, Geoff. I haven't seen the latest Tabletalk yet. Need to get one.

Thanks too for encouraging me on the blog. It actually gets a fair amount of hits per day, but I guess Garrett's audience is a bit rowdier than mine... Of course, what else would you expect from a crazy ex-marine who wants to preach like a Baptist? Rabble-rouser!

;)

Peace,

Brett,
Did you catch 60 Minutes last night? They did a great story on the alleged Priory of Sion and seemed to expose it as one of the best hoaxes in all of history. Seems the whole society was the figment of some Frenchman's imagination. He crafted false documents [including the alleged list of famous leaders] and filed them with the French national Library.
I'll refrain from one of my frog jokes. Personally, I hope Brown's publisher pulls any future deals.

Boneman

No, I didn't see 60 minutes, but I heard that the docs were a fraud. Unbelievable.

It is a great counterfeit. It looks real on the surface, but up close you can see that it is a fraud. Unfortunately, counterfeits sell... I expect to see a lot more from Dan Brown.

Well I have to admit that sex rituals would be a lot more fun than sitting in church!

Seriously, I did a little research on the Sacred Feminine after seeing the film last night, and I think he may be on to something. So much of what is wrong with the world today stems from the lack of feminine values in places of power. Time to end destruction and time to nurture.

Boneman

Dreamer,

I don't know if you will come back and interact with me on your comment - I hope you will...

Anyway, your kidding aside, I hope you have done enough research to know that Dan Brown's book is propaganda in the sense that he combines little bits of facts with huge swaths of fiction to make his point. I would strongly encourage you to go to www.thetruthaboutdavinci.com

I would also ask - what is a "feminine value?" My understanding is that we have one set of values, but two different gender roles to fulfill. Perhaps you are confusing "sin" with "masculinity." Help me out here.
