Hi Robin,

In reading your posts over the past, you seem to keep an open mind on most issues.
I try to as well.

Lomas and Knight's work is very different from Dan Brown's and Baigent, Leigh and Lincoln's.

Dan Brown's da Vinci Code is probably 90% inaccurate. But the 10% that is correct no one pays any
attention to. There are elements to Holy Blood, Holy Grail that are correct but it gets thrown out with the baby in the
bath water because of the claims made by some of their sources. Lomas and Knight's work on the other hand has really
upset some members of the brotherhood but for obvious reasons you rarely see public comments about it.

There is a common thread in all of the works. What a person chooses to believe is their own business.

The one thing I have learned is that the truth is some times far more interesting than the fiction created around it.

"History: an account mostly false, of events unimportant, which are brought about rulers mostly knaves, and soldiers mostly fools."
Ambrose Bierce

"Historian: an unsuccessful novelist."
