While The DaVinci Code is fictional and The Bible Code is bogus, The Parthenon Code presents a genuine artists' code revealing the true history of mankind.
The Parthenon Code presents:
•A simple, but hidden artists’ code expressed on ancient vase-paintings and on the sculptures of the Parthenon that traces Greek religious history back through the Flood to a woman, a serpent, and a tree in an ancient paradise.
•The astonishing truth that Greek myth/art chronicles in great detail the re-establishment of the way of Kain (Cain) after the Flood.
•The meaning of the seven sculptural themes on Athena’s great temple, the Parthenon, deciphered and understood for the first time in more than 2,000 years.
The Parthenon Code demonstrates conclusively that the events of Eden were part of the Greeks’ collective cultural memory, and that their special interpretation of those events made up the very basis of their religious system. Greek myth/art is human history; the Book of Genesis is human history. While the viewpoints of each are opposite, the recounted events and characters match each other in convincing detail.
The Greeks knew exactly who Noah was. They called him Nereus, the “Wet One,” and they dated the beginning of their the religious system from the end of his era. While it is true that the Greeks built the Parthenon to glorify the serpent-worshipping Eve of Genesis, it is also true that they built it to celebrate the victory of their humanistic outlook over Noah and his God.
The depth and breadth of the revelations in The Parthenon Code render most other books on the subject obsolete.

“Original, seminal, ground-breaking, unforgettable, and highly recommended.”
James A. Cox, the Midwest Book Review.
“In the shade of the Acropolis, looking up at the Parthenon while reading it, the book made complete sense of the way ancient Greek artists communicated in a layperson’s language. [This] puts the book in a rare class of literature that can be classified as the beaconing light to understand humanity.”
New Europe, the European Weekly

| ||THE PARTHENON CODE reconnected me to the lost history of humanity. The computer reproductions of the ancient Greek statues are excellent, and to borrow a phrase, each of the many illustrations is worth a thousand words.|
THE DAVINCI CODE disappointed me. The absolutely false idea expressed in it that Jesus wasn
