superman and jesus

"I've always felt that the origin of Superman is the story of Moses -- the child sent on a ship to fulfill a destiny," said Singer, a producer on the upcoming X-Men: First Class. "And this was a story about Christ -- it's all about sacrifice: The world, I hear their cries. So what happens? He gets the knife in the side and later he falls to the earth in the shape of a crucifix. It was kind of nailing you on the head, but I enjoyed that, because I've always found the myth of Christ compelling and moving. So I hoped to do my own take, which is heavy s--- for a summer movie."-Bryan Singer, director/producer of "Superman Returns" the big fail movie.

Superman and jeebus, who'da thunk it.

Faith is the word but next to that snugged up closely "lie's" the want.

Google Dr. Robert M. Price,

Google Dr. Robert M. Price, and see if you can find any of his "Bible Geek" podcasts. When I listened regularly a couple years ago, he would often make connections between Superman and Jesus. I think he may even have a book with a title something to that effect. He certainly does have "The Incredible Shrinking Son of Man", which is an awesome title.

I did wiki him btw, took about 2 seconds to realize I already know a bit about him. I might look into one of his books. I need a few more reasonable books to prop up these bibles I have /cough

It's not so much that they

It's not so much that they are really connected, but are born out of human narcissism. We want so badly to be important our myths, gods and comic books reflect the heros we dream up.
