which has sold more than 40 million copies worldwide.
Well, after reading the book I can say that it was quite an excitin which has sold more than 40 million copies worldwide.
Well, after reading the book I can say that it was quite an exciting adventure book. OK. But some parts of the book has been written so superficially and -sorry but- so ignorantly that I could not help myself toprepare a video for criticizing these points and to enlighten 40 million people who bought this book.
So let's begin with 134Th page of the book where we read the women were banished from mosques in Islam and there are no women priests in Islam. This is completely wrong Mr.Brown and it isobvious that you did not make sufficient researches.During 300 years of the middles ages when 5 million women were burned at stake by the witch hunts of the Church ,Prophet Mohammed was sent as the last Messenger with the last book&religion to all humanity.Because the message sent by Jesus was somehow distorted in this new and last message of Koran Allah/or the God said "And for women are rights over men similar to those of men over women. (2:226)It was also stated that in Islam there is absolutely no difference between men and women , as both are promised the same reward for good conduct and the same punishment for evil conduct. Who so does that which is right, and believes, whether male or female, him or her will We quicken to happy life. (16:97) The last message namely Islam regarded men and women as being of the same essence created from a single soul saying "O mankind! Reverence your Guardian-Lord, who created you from a single person, created, of like nature, his mate, and from this pair scattered (like seeds) countless men and (4:1)" .So please get rid of your prejudice/and laziness that in Islam the women are treated badly and the only way for this is reading Koran and making researches.Lastly The Prophet Mohammed(PBUH) said, "Women are the twin halves of men."
Now let's come to page 172 where Dan Brown wrote "The Knights of Temple or the Knights Templar" discovered some facts in the ruins of Salamon's Temple and they became the most wealthy and limitless powerful men of the Christian world by blackmailing Vatican.(As you know later by1300s by the plan of Pope Clement V the Knights were cleansed BY BEING BURNED AT STAKES completely). What was the secret document they found?
It was simply what was mentioned in Koran.According to Koran Jesus was nor crucified neither killed which at the same time is the biggest flaw of the Christianity.As you very well know Jesus breathed into a clay bird, and it became a bird , healed a born blind person and the leper, he brought the dead to life ,he could inform people of what they ate and what they stored in their houses. so,how can a prophet with miracles like Jesus be crucified by normal/common humans like you and me?And how can such educated& learned&developed societies like you believe that a prophet is a loser although he has the power of Lord behind?
Now please Christian brothers do not be sorry any more that Jesus was crucified or killed and break all your crosses symbolizing Jesus' crucifixion because what you do is a really big sin.
So the sentence written on the 253rd page is right saying"Concil of Nicea by the orders of Constantine decided by voting that Jesus is the son of God and chose 4 gospels of Matthew,Mark,Luke and John among 80 gospels .However the sentence on the 250th page saying "The bible did not arrive by fax from heaven but it is a product of man" is completely wrong but the true anwer according to Islam is that it IS a book of God but because it was distorted the last book Koran was sent.
Lastly nor the Holy Grail symbolizes Mary Magdelena neither Sophie and his brother can be descendants of Jesus as it is written in the book because again according to Islamic sources Jesus was taken above alive and he will be sent again and he will marry ,have children and be buried near Prophet Mohammed after his death.Again according to Islam he will break "the Cross" which means it will be understood that he was not the one who was crucified. He is expected to come very soon according to some Islamic calculations and according to me I very strongly feel that he already has come.According to Islam he will be understood by his being without any relative and only very people with very strong faith will be able to know him.It is obvious that I do not have any chance of knowing or seeing him. I wish I had such a strong faith.Lastly if you really want to find the Holy Grail namely a propethical blood line just look at the mirrors in your house because Mark Humphrys, a genealogy enthusiast and professor of computer science at Dublin City University in Ireland estimates that Prophet Muhammad appears on the family tree of every person in the Western world.You can find this info on internet by searching the phrase "Does your family have royal roots?".Best Regards ( more )
In this business tv show, Paul George from the Business Families Team at PricewaterhouseCoopers explains why it could be in your best interest to buy out the rest of the family:
“The other thing that can be a problem with a family business that thrives over many generations is if you’re not careful you end up with a very unmanageable share holder register.
You know in a modern family it’s often the case that the entrepreneur will split the shares pretty equally among his children. If they do the same then in some families within generations you’re talking about dozens of shareholders and you can end up in a very difficult and unmanageable situation where its still a private company but its got a pretty widely spread shareholder base who aren’t closely associated with what’s going on and often the company carries on operating in much the same way they did in the first generation, with a very low dividend, really running very conservatively for the benefit of the business, not the shareholders and that’s a recipe for all sorts of problems if its not sorted out.
The companies that survive longest in terms of generations, if you go back through you’ll often find there’s been a succession of single children. The two big problems in family succession are having no children and having many children and there’s a process that many of those survived have gone through every 2 or 3 generations of, if you like pruning the family tree, buying out those parts of the shareholder register that aren’t really heavily committed to the company anymore.
Borrowing in the company and doing that in that way and history says that’s a successful part of the process of keeping a family process healthy in the long term.”

This is a touching tale of a female leopard’s struggle to raise two cubs in the harsh Savannah. One cub is bold and adventurous, often straying from the safety of the family tree - the other is more cautious, preferring to stay close to her mother. For two months we follow the family’s fight to stay alive. Can both cubs survive this unforgiving environment, or will one fall victim to the deadly Savannah?

Remember that children’s book “Are You My Mother?” For one Illinois baby, the answer to that question is a little confusing. That’s because even though his biological parents made him, his 61-year old grandmother... delivered him.
Finnean Lee Connell is Kristine Casey’s first grandchild. Her daughter -- Finnean’s biological mother -- suffered through multiple failed pregnancies until grandma offered up her own belly. Disregard the fact that Casey already hit menopause -- ten years ago.
ABC asked a doctor to explain how a 61-year old woman was able to safely carry a baby:
“The uterus itself does not age. So if you take eggs from a younger woman and use those eggs, and put them into the uterus of an older woman -- that success rate will be determined by the age of the woman’s eggs, not the uterus.”
Casey had a C-section delivery -- with a few minor kidney complications, which were quickly remedied. But a reproductive specialist tells the Chicago Tribune -- there can be serious risks for a pregnancy at that age.
"The issue comes up because as a woman gets older, the risks she takes in pregnancy clearly go up — everything from high blood pressure and diabetes to premature delivery and infant death."
Grandma says she felt a “spiritual calling” to this role. But not everyone sees this as a beautiful thing. A writer for the Village Voice says she’s just creeped out.
“... This concept -- "grandmother gives birth to own grandchild" -- makes me think of Russian nesting dolls.... Am I the only judgmental old prude who thinks this is slightly weird?”
The National Post interviewed a surrogacy lawyer who says more mothers are choosing family members as the ideal surrogate.
“… Women who have a relative for a surrogate. ... tend to be more trusting. Rarely is there a litany of do’s and don’ts handed down to a relative, whereas a paid surrogate, who is often a stranger, would have a number of restrictions ... Women who use family members as surrogates tend to be far more grateful ... seeing the surrogacy as an act of love.”
So what do you think? A courageous act of love? Or an awkward branch in the family tree?
