Avatar . . . Footballers . . . Cyclists . . . Swine flu
Brian Murphy (Letters , February 2) dismisses out of hand David Quinn's contention that the film 'Avatar' has any intrinsic religious significance for viewers.

Mr Quinn could be right. Mr Murphy seems to forget that the denizens of this planet kill their deities by crucifixion.
