The Da Vinci Code: Secret Hidden Truth?

The Devil is a liar and the father of lies, and the heart of man is deceitful above all things, and desperately corrupt. Put the two together and you get a very toxic mix indeed.

On his desk next to his computer sat crunched Red Bulls, empty Gatorade bottles, some extra pocket change and scattered pieces of paper. In the pocket of his sweat pants rested a blaring iPod with a chord that dangled near the floor, almost touching against his Adidas sandals.
