Getting Art History over with this year. Had to listen to a 20 minute rant, including a death threat against Dan Brown, by the professor today, because every semester, any time she shows The Last Supper to a class, someone argues with her about who is in it and what it means, based entirely on what they read in the fiction book (or saw in the movie, one genius in my class today didn't even know it was a book first - she thought it was Tom Hanks' fault, and that Tom Hanks had DaVinci exhumed to make the movie).
Are there really people who think a fiction novel is true because it's about a giant conspiracy theory? It lists at the very beginning of the book a handful of real life organizations and documents that were used as inspiration, but never once claims in any way that any of the actual story or clues in the book are true.
