Transcribed passages from Da Vinci Code appear in red below. And corresponding passages from Rock Prophecy follow in blue.

DC 2003: The word Sangreal derives from San Greal - or Holy Grail. But in its most ancient form, the word Sangreal was divided in a different spot…Sang Real…literally meant Royal Blood…Sangreal…Sang Real…San Greal…Royal Blood…Holy Grail. It was all intertwined.

RP 1999: It's called the Messiah/Christ complex: Christ = Messiah = Original Sin = Sex Denigrate = Control of Women…

DC 2003: Their brutal crusade to "reeducate" the pagan and feminine worshipping religions spanned three centuries, employing methods as inspired as they were horrific. The Catholic Inquisition published the book that arguably could be called the most blood-soaked publication in human history. Malleus Maleficarum - or "The Witches' Hammer" - indoctrinated the world to the dangers of freethinking women and instructed the clergy how to locate, torture, and destroy them. During three hundred years of witch hunts, the Church burned at the stake an astounding five million women.

RP 1999: "All witchcraft comes from carnal lust, which is in women insatiable," Malleus Maleficarum…I don't think you can understand patriarchy unless you look at the fact that fear is at the core, fear that female sexuality will somehow become this chaotic force and nature will become this chaotic force overtaking us. So we have to have everything very tightly controlled and hierarchically ordered…observations from Eusebius set the stage for an age of Inquisitions, witch hunts, and burnings. When the orthodox gained military support…sometime after the Emperor Constantine became Christian in the fourth century, the penalty for heresy escalated. This trend climaxed hundreds of years later when the Gnostics, and anyone who followed goddess beliefs, became the targets of holocaust. Throughout Europe from the 15th to the 17th centuries, nine million people were accused of being witches. Eighty-five percent of those killed for the crime of witchcraft were women. This women's holocaust has roots at the Council of Nicea, the world's first EcuMENical gathering.

Whereas Da Vinci Code claims that "the royal bloodline of Jesus Christ is the source of the most enduring legend of all time - the Holy Grail," Rock Prophecy argues that it is not the bloodline of Jesus that has been lost, it is his line of thinking that has been concealed:

RP 1999: Jesus preached that everyone deserves the same. Constantine's crime at Nicea was to revise these teachings and redefine Jesus as a figurehead of hierarchy.

DC 2003: Not even the feminine association with the left-hand side could escape the Church's defamation. In France and Italy, the words for "left" - gauche and sinistra - came to have deeply negative overtones, while their right-hand counterparts rang of righteousness, dexterity, and correctness. To this day, radical thought was considered left wing, irrational thought was left brain, and anything evil, sinister.

RP 1999: The Pythagoreans went so far as to divide everything in the universe into two categories: the odd numbers belong to the right side, which is associated with the limited, the masculine, the straight, with light and goodness…while even numbers belong to the sphere of the infinite, the unlimited (as they are infinitely divisible), the manifold, the left side, the female, the moving, the crooked, darkness, evil…For Plato, all even numbers were of ill omen, and V.C. Hopper states correctly: "As if the feminine numbers were not already sufficiently in disfavor, the stigma of infinity is attached to them, apparently by analogy to the line"…Greek Hellenists imagined human beings to be split into a threefold division of body, soul and spirit. From this belief, Islam and Judeo-Christian religions have constructed the Fall of Man at the hands of sinful nature and wicked women. Even numbers represent the female: EVil EVen numbers.

DC 2003: Those deemed "witches" by the Church included all female scholars, priestesses, gypsies, mystics, nature lovers, herb gatherers, and any women "suspiciously attuned to the natural world." Midwives also were killed for their heretical practice of using medical knowledge to ease the pain of childbirth - a suffering, the Church claimed, that was God's rightful punishment for Eve's partaking of the Apple of Knowledge, thus giving birth to the idea of Original Sin.

RP 1999: Nature religions and possession dances…are physical, bodily celebrations denounced by Judeo-Christian traditions…The State took over the religion and redefined it to suit the leaders of the empire…Augustine, a Vatican writer, dreamed up the idea of original sin to link Jesus with Eden and the denigration of sex. With this creed the Church of the Empire offered men authority to order women into submission…the Fall of Nature explains why, in Western culture, all impulsive acts, all behaviors that are inspired by nature, have been for centuries regarded as sin…Campbell notes, "We speak with derogation of 'the nature religions.' You see, with that Fall in the Garden nature was regarded as corrupt"…In his book Counsel for Kings, eleventh century Islamic philosopher Ghazali reports, "When Eve ate fruit which He had forbidden…the Lord…punished women with:…menstruation;…childbirth;…pregnancy; not having control over her own person; a lesser share in inheritance; her liability to be divorced and inability to divorce; its being lawful for men to have four wives, but for a woman to have only one husband; the fact that she must stay secluded in the house; the fact that she must keep her head covered inside the house;…the fact that she must not go outside of the house unless accompanied by a near relative;…disqualification for rulership and judgeship…"

DC 2003: The days of the goddess were over. The pendulum had swung. Mother Earth had become a man's world, and the gods of destruction and war were taking their toll. The male ego had spent two millennia running unchecked by its female counterpart.

RP 1999: In short, society became A Man's World.

"Things like witchcraft, which is a form of exploration, and imagination, have been banned by the establishment and called evil. It's because people are frightened to find out the full power of the mind."

- Jimi Hendrix
