I believe it's time for mankind to set aside the crutch of religion and embrace morality born of reason and truth. Those crutches have long since proven treacherous when the ground gets slippery.

Spanish film director Bigas Luna, 67, cancer.

No-one else worthy of mention has died today that I am aware of.

Annette Funicello, original Mouseketeer. Multiple Sclerosis.

I haven't seen any other noteworthy deaths today either.

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."

Don't understand the reason for the sarcasm. For those who don't know, Margaret Thatcher is the person they are not mentioning. http://m.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-22067155

I has been forced outta Early retirement to say:

Nope, not noticed any deaths of any great note recently.
The smoke wafted gently in the breeze across the poop deck and all seemed right in the world.

"How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, 'This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant. God must be even greater than we dreamed'? Instead they say, 'No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.'" - Carl Sagan

"To doubt everything or to believe everything are two equally convenient solutions; both dispense with the necessity of reflection." - Henri Poincaré
