At the Science Centre in the city where I live they have a new exhibite called body worlds. Its pretty much an exhibite of preserved bodies. It was kind of interesting but at the sametime creepy.
People can "sign up" to give their bodies to science once they die. You can even give stillborn babies.

personally I would not, and partly for religion and partly I dont want strangers looking at my body.... (and most were naked)


i think i may have seen that exhibition before.

quite interesting.

did they put some of the bodies in certain positions? i remember seeing one that was skiing down a hill...=="

and another was sitting in the thinker position playing a game of chess
and i also remember i saw a vein system of the hand on a slab of glass...it looked amazing...

How do you "dishonor" as dead person ? The way I see it is they have no honor if they are dead. And besides what he did is legal so whats the issue ? And why should I have respect for a dead person in the first place ? I don't see a reason to respect a dead person.


One point is what the dead human being wanted for her/his body. In the case of body worlds they themselves gave permisson to use their body that way.

My point, what I consider even more important is what this show does to the spectator. It leads to a view on the deceased that lacks even the slightest bit of respect and therefore dishonours them.

There is no scientific benefit to gain from body worlds, they just make money by showing dismembered and skinned dead bodys like rottendotcom.

It's just disgusting and I'm not even religious.

Edit: The german word is "Leichenschändung" which commonly means dishonoring the dead. Perhaps "desecration of a corpse" would be better.

I, a student, learned many things from Body Worlds, I learned how different muscles worked and was able to see them in real life. This exhibit even expanded our interest in biology. I was a spectator and i still have respect for the dead, and im sure everyone else does as well.
Theres a lot more "disgusting" exhibites out there... ever heard of the artist that chained a dog and watched it starve in the name of art? I think thats something people should be suspicous of. This is just teaching the public about the human body in a different way

You want to tell me that was a job which couldn't have been accomplished by synthetic corpses. It had to be real ones?

why not? If a student goes to this exhibit they can see the real thing, and thats much more interesting. What else do you think these bodies should be used for? Specifically.
