 I saw the movie Friday morning and never made the connection. I thought it was - 7/10 at best. Way too many CGI for my tastes.
When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle. Then I realised that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me.

I've always heard the comparisons of Superman to god/Jesus, most my life. Though wasn't Superman created by Jewish guys?

A god is like a rock: it does absolutely nothing until someone or something forces it to do something. The only capability the rock has is doing nothing until another force compels it physically to move.

So was Jesus.

I forgot...which one can leap tall buildings?
Yo, put that in your pipe and smoke it.  Quit ragging on my Lord.

Jesus might have been Jewish but I've heard Christians deny that online and off.

All Jesus had was walking on water, apparently. Seems Superman is more godly than Jesus.

Don't knock the water into wine thing. As superpowers go, that's a neat one.
Science: I'll believe it when I see it
Faith: I'll see it when I believe it

Without life, god has no meaning.
