14. 'Specially since one of the "keepers" of the Priory of Scion
documentation admitted in the '70s the whole thing was a hoax.
I find the whole thing too convoluted and ridiculous myself. My husband (who is not Catholic) says there are too many people involved -- every conspiracy falls apart and every secret is blown if enough people are involved.

Seriously though, the history of Europe and the church is bloody and tragic -- and sad -- enough without throwing in a lot of wild speculation.
