It sure is confusing. The deeper you go, the more contradictory things become. Either too many hands stirring the pot, or not enough attention paid initially to keeping this stuff straight.

I'm usually always pleasantly surprised that the graphic novel kept all this stuff clear and coherent, where it addressed dates at all. It's only afterward, by and large, that confusion sets in.

I still contend Walter's birthday listed as 3/21/40 is totally intentional. It is 3 days before Easter in 1940 (3/24/40). Good Friday (the crucifixion of Jesus) is actually 2 days before Easter, but I believe Moore made a simple error and just figured the third day before Easter was 3/21/40 instead of 3/22/40. See the "baptism" thread.

Rorschach's theory of "punish all sins" is the mirror image of Jesus' belief of "forgive all sins." Walter has on two occasions blood splashed on the symmetric opposite side of Jesus' chest wound from the spear of destiny on the cross. That's no accident either. I believe Moore wanted to show the birth of Walter and the death of Jesus as a metaphor of moral objectivism being the symmetric opposite of Christian beliefs.
