They can do whatever they wish to my body, throw me in a ditch somewhere if they want.

Not like I am using the body anymore.

this is a different form of vs thread so I dont think they'll block it... My religion says I should be cremated and I'd actually prefer to be. I would mesh into the world a lot faster that way. Plus in my culture, the ashes are spread in a river and there is a book with the names of my ancestors whose ashes were set free there. I think thats pretty cool.

I have nothing against burial, and it leaves something for the living to go see after the person has passed away, but i like knowing that I'm not decaying in the ground but instead, I'm everywhere in the world all at once almost instantly.

Do what you want, its your choice... I actually find it a little morbid to get cremated and to keep the ashes so if that was the case, I think getting burried is a better option. However, if your like me and your ashes are going to be disposed of somewhere- cremation is my favored choice.


I totally forgot about the no vs thread rule until after i posted it, but it's good to hear that its a little different and theres a chance the mods wont block it.

It says something in the bible about coming from dust and returning to heaven from our graves (at least thats what my mom told me) but she said it doesnt specifically say wheather it's right or wrong so shes not sure either.

Yeah it does sound nice being scattered around the world from your ashes, but it's nice to have people visit your grave too.

I seriously dont know what to choose, but i'll figure it out sooner or later. I think i might go with the traditional choice, but i dont know if i'll stick with that.




It says in the sticky thread in the poles that "no vs thread" isnt a definite rule. Yours is generating a more intellectual response so they will most like not lock it.

"It says something in the bible about coming from dust and returning to heaven from our graves (at least thats what my mom told me) but she said it doesnt specifically say wheather it's right or wrong so shes not sure either. "

I'm not overly religious and I'n not gonna try do defy your beliefs but i am going to say this: that line could be interperated in so many different ways. Coming from dust- yor basically dust after being cremated. Returning to heaven- It could be talking about the Ethereal heven or heaven as in the skys. You'd return to the airs after both ways- just cremation will take a lot less time. As far as Ethereal heaven goes, many religions believe in cremation and in heaven. Thats like saying that the people that belong to those religions will not go to heaven. From our graves- Who says that a grave has to be a place that your burried?

The point of what I am saying is that you shouldn't rely to heavily on a book, you should also think for yourself. Many things written in the bible can be seen as uncooth today and aren't followed in the least. I am not saying that you should get cremated. You should just look at both and pick which will be better for you. In either way- you end up being the same thing physically, just 14 elements i think.

I hope i was helpful.

None of this is true.

I feel the need to intervine for, you are being quite rude. Calling someone who wants to be burried a fool is just disgustingly single minded. It may be a part of their religion or beliefs and you nor i nor anyone else has the right to say that its wrong.

Secondly, Read some Dr. Seus. A person is a person no matter how small. You may think that only one persons existance is insignificant but the existance in question has an impact on the entire world. I am talking to you, I might make you angry. You may take out that anger where you live. Someone may get offended by that anger and tell someone else. That someone else might post on another site how rediculously rude you are, etc, etc.

People use up money to take care of your burial site, that is true. However, it is not a civic service. They get money to do it. They make a profit, which pays the workers, which feeds their children. And its not as if taking care of the body in any otehr scocially acceptable way is any cheaper.

It is natural for people to love other people and have their deaths done in such a way that they can properly say goodbye. A life is never insignifigant because there is at least a hundred other people that your life effects. I dont prefer burial, I prefer cremation but that doesnt mean I insult it.

I never insult people, I insult ideas but when a person like you presents themself I feel the need to put them in their place. I've made my point and my words for you end there. You arent worth any more of my time as it is. Have a pleasent evening.
