In preparation for the movie, I am rereading Dan Brown's book, Angels & Demons. I found these passages quite intriguing and interesting:
Langdon's head was pounding louder now...tiny voices playing tug-of-war.
Faith does not protect you. Medicine and airbags...those are the things that protect you. God does not protect you. Intelligence protects you. Enlightenment. Put your faith in something with tangible results. How long has it been since someone walked on water? Modern miracles belong to science...computers, vaccines, space stations...even the divine miracle of reaction. Matter from nothing...in a lab. Who needs God? No! Science is God.
The killer's voice resonated in Langdon's mind. Midnight...mathematical progression of death...sacrifici vergini nell' altare di scienza.
I am so looking forward to the movie.
