« Brown acknowledges "reworking" passages, using ideas from HBHG | Main | "Symbologist" Robert Langdon inspired by... »

"Better to let people think you are a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt."

Too bad DB's wife didn't tell him about that popular adage...


I'm just waiting for the movie to come out, and then all the people who've read the novel and think it's "all just so believable, don't you know" will witness the flurry of convoluted ideas and conspiracies swirling around in their heads suddenly thrown right up there on the big screen for all to see. And it will appear so truly absurd (just like the film "National Treasure") that most people won't help but laugh and realize that the whole theory is nothing but a lame joke.

awww..."National Treasure" was fun.

Carl, I admit it: I clicked on the LAST thing you want to talk, as above. Just to see. Golly, you're right, THAT stuff makes Dan Brown look like Clancy or Crichton.

Lawyers seem to have the same reputation for truthfulness as Dan Brown, so I wonder why Dan Brown's lawyers did not advice him to buy a new copy of HBHG when the judge asked him to present his personal copy to the court. :D

(About my lawyer joke: I'm a law graduate myself waiting for the results of the Philippine Bar exam (results to come out by the end of this month; you may construe this as a prayer request!), so I guess it's not uncharitable to make fun of myself.)

Ed: It's impossible to overstate how horribly written the "Left Behind" books are. Impossible. Their lack of literary merit seems to directly parallel the lack of theological and biblical evidence for premillennial dispensationalism, which the books seek to spread like an exotic disease among an unsuspecting populace. For examples, see my review of Book #12 of the series, Glorious Appearing:

Cristina: A lawyer who tells lawyer jokes! May you pass your exam and be a source of salt, light, and laughter within the legal profession.

Ed Peters

Amen. Let us know, OK?


Good luck, Cristina. I too know this torture.

Cristina A. Montes

Thanksalot, all of you.
