YEAR ONE

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

Dollins goes on a diatribe about the cover and that it contains a broom (a phallic symbol), a unicorn (an occultic symbol), etc. Yadda, yadda, yadda.
 
This man seems obsessed with sex as he mentions lust, phallic symbols, "private parts" and heading off into the bushes in his book.
 
THERE IS NO SEX IN THE POTTER BOOKS! NOR IS THERE ANY MENTION OF SEX.
 
Images on the covers relate to the story inside, and once you've read the book, you understand the cover.

Yes, there are things from mythology and paganism in the book. "Fluffy", the three-headed dog that is related to cerebrus is a prime example. But most writers DO draw from things other than Christianity for inspiration. C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and William Shakespeare are just a few.

Dollins claims to have read the book, but he makes mistakes throughout his opus that are hard to ignore. Here he claims that Hagrid is a giant (no, he's half giant); that Harry was invited to Hogwarts because they "knew that Harry had been born with a special gift for magic" and that he got his magical abilities from his SCAR! (page 17, paragraph three.)

Rowling stated that "in Hogwarts there's a magical quill which detects the birth of a magical child, and writes his or her name down in a large parchment book. Every year Professor McGonagall checks the book, and sends owls to the people who are turning 11." (www.mugglenet.com)

Harry's name was recorded at birth, as he had magical abilities then. You find out in book five that there was a prophecy made before Harry was born.
 
"The one with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord approaches... born to those who have thriced defied him, born as the seventh month dies, and the Dark Lord will mark him as his equal, but he will have power the Dark Lord knows not..." (book five, page 841 hardback.)

That scar does not give him power. That scar is the result of a curse that bounced off of him and hit Voldemort.
