Will Titanic Curse Da Vinci Too?

Forget the protests from the Vatican, the curse of Titanic, as first examined here at "Movies on My Mind" (on January 9, 2006) may be enough to sink The Da Vinci Code. Wire reports have already said, "Trade professionals believe The Da Vinci Code could become the biggest-grossing film of all time, eventually surpassing the current champ, Titanic, which took in about $1.85 billion dollars at world box offices." In The New York Daily News, in an article by Joe Dziemianowicz yesterday, there was the following -- "The movie, directed by Ron Howard and starring Tom Hanks and Audrey Tautou, blasts into movie theaters tomorrow, and it's expected to be the biggest thing since Titanic." Uh oh. This could spell trouble. Remember how the curse of Titanic works -- once it's suggested that a new film might make as much, or more, that Titanic, that film fails, EVEN IF IT MAKES LOTS OF MONEY!! Sony's big budget remake of Godzilla and Peter Jackson's overblown remake of King Kong, have both fallen victim to the Titanic curse. I wondered how long it would be before another film got sucked into the no-win situation of trying to top the boxoffice of a true phenomenon. It seems now, The Da Vinci Code needs to ward off this curse. If you remember, the curse does necessarily cause bad boxoffice (King Kong actually made lots of money) but rather, it sets up an expectation that even if a film grosses big -- but doesn't reach $1.8 billion -- it's a failure! An early sign of the curse has already manifested itself with The Da Vinci Code -- critics are lukewarm to the film. I can see the sharks smelling the blood...

Hi Montesano,

Pay close attention, profundity knocks at the door, listen for the key. Be aware, scoffing leads to blindness...

There is a way to verify the truth...

There's a bit more to the story of the Vatican's reaction than most are yet aware of. Read my missive below to understand what they truly fear. It's not the DaVinci Code or Gospel of Judas per se, but the fact that people have been motivated to seek out the unequivocal truth about an age of deception, exactly when they expect me to appear. The Gospel of Judas and DaVinci Code controversies are allowing people to take new stock of the Vatican/Papacy and the religions Rome spawned.

Remember, "I come as a thief..." ?

Yes, the DaVinci Code is a novel. It is no more accurate as a literal version of history than is the New Testament. In other words, neither is the literal truth, which is a key fact of the story and ancient history. The primary sub-plot is about purposeful symbology being used to encode hidden meanings, exactly like the Bible and related texts. Arguing about whether the DaVinci Code, Gospel of Judas, or the Bible are accurate history is a Machiavellian red herring designed to hide the truth by misdirecting your inquiry away from the heart of the matter.

Want to truly understand why we can't let the Vatican succeed at telling us what to think about ancient history? There is a foolproof way to verify the truth and expose centuries-old religious deceptions. It is also the common thread connecting why the ancient Hebrews, Yahad/Essene, Jews, Gnostics, Cathars, Templars, Dead Sea Scrolls, DaVinci Code, and others have all been targets of Rome’s ire and evil machinations. What the Vatican and its secret society cohorts don’t want you to understand is that the ancient Hebrew symbology in all of these texts purposely encodes and exposes the truth about them. Furthermore, the structure of ancient symbology verifiably encodes the rules to decode messages built with it. This is what they most fear you will discover.

If the Bible represented the literal truth or even accurate history, there would be no need for faith in the assertions of deceptive and duplicitous clergy and their ilk. Wisdom and faith are opposing concepts, because wisdom requires the unequivocal truth where faith obfuscates and opposes it. Religion is therefore the enemy of truth and wisdom.

It is undeniable the New Testament is framed by ancient Hebrew symbolism and allegory. The same is evidenced in the Dead Sea Scrolls, Gnostic texts, biblical apocrypha, DaVinci Code, and other related texts. All ancient religious, mystical, and wisdom texts have been shrouded in mystery for millennia for one primary reason: The ability to understand their widely evidenced symbology was lost in antiquity. How do we finally solve these ages-old mysteries? To recast an often-used political adage: It’s [the] symbology, stupid!

It is amazing the Vatican still tries to insist the Gospels are literal truth. It is beyond obvious they are replete with ancient Hebrew symbology. Every miracle purported for Jesus has multiple direct symbolic parallels in the Old Testament, Apocalypse, Dead Sea Scrolls, and other symbolic narratives and traditions. This is the secret held by the ancient Gnostics, Templars, and Cathars, which is presented with dramatic effect in the DaVinci Code. None of these narratives or stories were ever intended as the literal truth. That is a key fact to unraveling ages-old mysteries.

Likewise, the following Washington Post article ( The Book of Bart) describes how many changes and embellishments were made to New Testament texts over the centuries, unequivocally demonstrating they are not original, infallible, or truthful.

It's no wonder the Vatican fears the truth more than anything else. Seek to understand the symbolic significance of my name (Seven Star Hand) and you will have proof beyond disproof that Jews, Christians, and Muslims have long been duped by the great deceivers I warned humanity about over the millennia. What then is the purpose of "faith" but to keep good people from seeking to understand truth and wisdom?

Now comes justice, hot on its heels... (symbolism...)

Not only do I talk the talk, I walk the walk...
Here is Wisdom!!

Revelations from the Apocalypse
 
Well, In the conservative little town of Cincinnati, there is picketing of the movie outside of theaters. That should boost the box office some I would think.

I might take my own placard "If you are worried about historical accuracy STOP CALLING MARY MAGDALENE A PROSTITUTE!"

There is no more evidence in the Bible to support that she was a prostitute than there is to support she was married to Jesus. If everyone is going to get worked up about someone's reputation being at stake I suggest we restore Mary's first.
