Convenient chart of bat-convenience

Some time back I created a quick comparison, for satirical purposes, between Autobot Leader Optimus Prime and Christian Leader Jesus Christ (there is even a useful pictorial chart for convenience). This comparison showed that if you wish to live by the example of a particular character than you would indeed be much better off going with the Peter Cullen voiced bearer of the Matrix of Leadership. If nothing else, he can give you a lift down-town whilst his opponent could do nothing of the sort.

This time we take a look at the Dark Knight Crusader vs. Jesus Christ. Which possesses the better philosophy? Which has the better track record and achievements? Who has the cooler car? And, most importantly, who serves as a better role model and example for humanity?

Just a quick announcement: I have set up a seperate blog to address a certain type of argument that I am trying.  This blog is The Church of Optimus Prime, established … well, the about page of the new blog explains it well enough.

The purpose of this satirical website is to demonstrate the foundamental silliness of most (if not all) arguments made by religious fundamentalists to support the existence of their chosen deity.  This is done initially by applying those same arguments to another entity; in this case Optimus Prime.  Secondly, the moral teachings/principles of Optimus Prime are used to demonstrate that if a figure had to be worshipped then he would make a far better choice than most (if not all) deities currently reverred.

The first new entry is simply titled Optimus Prime: Better than the Christian God.

We all know that Optimus Prime is the greatest being who has ever existed. His drive and compassion shape the Universe.  His sacrifices for us are common but always overcome.  His knowledge is unsurpassed in both matters of war and peace.  His three aspects magnificently come together to form one incredible entity.  He possesses the wisdom of the ages (in his chest) which indeed did light the darkest hour.  So how can you, a small fleshy human, even attempt to emulate the life of the greatest Autobot of them all?  Simply by following the Commandments of Optimus Prime.

optimusjesus.jpgTime for a bit of more light-hearted fun.  This time comparing the acts, history and philosophy of Autobot leader Optimus Prime against those of religious icon Jesus Christ.  Each character will be marked in a series of categories, with recorded feats being submitted as evidence.  Some may be offended at the comparison … but, really, tough. If you can’t laugh at yourself from time to time then something is truly wrong.
