Last Show Recap

Da Vinci Code Roundtable

In the first half, George Noory welcomed author, family physician, and speaker, Dr. Rick Sheff, who discussed his spiritual journey and quest. As an atheist and scientist, he had a series of spiritual experiences that didn't fit into his web of belief, and these experiences eventually shattered his previous way of looking at the world.

In the latter half, modern-day spiritual messenger Neale Donald Walsch addressed his latest work tracing the origins of the concept of God.

Da Vinci Code Roundtable

Show Archive
Date: Monday - May 29, 2006
Host: George Noory
Guests: Glenn Kimball, Laurence Gardner, William Henry, Hamid Mir

Scholars of ancient manuscripts and legends, Laurence Gardner, William Henry, and Glenn Kimball shared their reactions to the ideas presented in The DaVinci Code, Dan Brown's popular book which was recently turned into a movie.Gardner commented that in Brown's novel there is a murkiness blending fact and fiction, and that he is definitely wrong in stating some items as factual in his introduction--such as details about the Priory of Sion.

The three guests concurred with the theory that Jesus married Mary Magdalene. This is not what has been traditionally taught, so the revelation upsets the church hierarchy, said Gardner. Yet Kimball commented that every nun considers herself to be a "bride of Jesus." As evidence for the marriage, Gardner cited the New Testament's description of Mary Magdalene's anointing of Jesus' feet with oil. This was a long-standing wedding ritual, he said. Kimball believes Jesus and Mary had several children, including a daughter named Sarah (though this name was really a title that meant princess, rather than her actual first name).

Henry praised Dan Brown's work for posing valuable questions and bringing Gnostic thought to the masses. He suggested that the bloodline of Mary and Jesus may have faced persecution because they held a higher type of consciousness that threatened the church's authority. The church sought to quash the secret knowledge of transforming an ordinary human into a being of light, explained Henry.

Hamid Mir Update

First half-hour guest, journalist Hamid Mir spoke from Pakistan about his interviewing of Osama bin Laden in 2001. He said he is 100% certain that bin Laden is still alive. Mir also shared his conclusions that Al-Qaeda operatives have obtained Russian suitcase nukes which have been smuggled into the U.S. However, according to his investigations, Al-Qaeda only plans to use these weapons if they have "solid justification" i.e. as a retaliatory measure.
