I'm comfortable with being cremated, and have a tree planted. I might hate dogs in the next life.

And original vampire.


Guy was a total trend setter.


No wonder dude is so esteemed...


Now I understand why you are against the spirit world being real.


I am? That's news to me.


Because if some things you don't want to believe are true


What do I not believe? And how do you know what I believe?


the ridiculing of Jesus and things of that nature,


I did? Howso?


Guess you will have to wait and see.



Hence life.


Good luck!


Same.

I wouldn't have a problem with this myself. Dead is dead and I have no deep seated need to be preserved in any manner.

My family is not one that really visits graves. To this day, I have never been to a family member's grave outside of the day of the funeral. I don't need to go there. I have memories of them in life and those are wonderful things. Visiting their grave is yet another reminder they're gone. I'd simply rather remember the time my grandfather let me help train the new foals to blankets and harnesses, or the time he let me help shingle the house, or help with hay baling or feeding the new baby calves with a bucket.

My grandmother taught me to can fruits and vegetables and tend a garden. I learned how to raise chickens and had several of them as pets.

My awesome uncle taught me so much about paleontology and geology because he was a geologist himself. He let us ride on his motorcycle and bought us obscene amounts of fireworks every year. He took me along on their family trip to Yellowstone and I will never forget that.

My stepfather taught me how to repair things around the house and to change the oil in my car. We didn't always see eye to eye, but I can look back and see where his influence was profound for me later on.

Going and sitting at some grave would be awkward and sad for me. I know they're gone. I don't need that extra reminder. I also can't ever remember a time when my mom or grandmother visited a grave.

As long as the bodies are not used for growing food, I don't see an issue with it.

This socialist project screams dehumanization. Letting grandma ferment in the compost pile. They will send you straight to the shredder instead of having a retirement.

Once you're dead nature has pretty effectively dehumanized you.

An excess of fat doesn't make for good fertilizer (or soil).

I'd rather go with "Grannies for GrainZ!"

Ranks up there with reef burials and eco-burials (fertalize a tree and the like) as an honorable and thoughtful thing to bestow upon the planet with your corpse or cremains. Can't become any more One with Nature than that, really. I mean, you will one way or the other, can't stop decomposition forever.

It's definitely more respectful than pumping it full of preservative chemicals and stuffing yourself into an encased box to putrify a little more slowly in. Mmm, dead people stew for the environment, just lovely. Talk about dragging out the inevitable, and doing it in a much more polluting manner. Ever wonder just how contaminated cemeteries are? (hint: Googling wont make you feel too spiffy about this method)

Anyway, I'd imagine dead folk microbial control is akin to the microbial control of composting toilets, which renders human waste sterile & nutrient dense. And while we're on the topic, it's not like human poop isn't already used for fertilizer, some states punt some of it fertilizer manufacturers' way for that exact use anyway. Vice did a show on this, You Don't Know S#. Be warned, if you can't handle poop jokes & associated fowl language in a joking manner, you may be too much of a delicate weenie to learn something interesting from the video.

And for an OP as Catholic as this one is, I'm pretty surprised she's on such a high horse about what becomes of remains. Catholic churches made from bones of the dead can't possibly be considered dignified eternal conditions unless you're willfully hypocritical.

Only if we can shove them over a cliff into the wood chipper. I like to combine my tropes and memes.

There's a fat remover in the squishing process, it's used to make soap, we don't waste any of our product.

I mean, as long as we have a chute down the cliff, and a conveyor belt at the top.

But that's more a gif..

So you want their demolition to be a bit more controlled? Very 9/11ish of you. I approve.

It makes good soap. Especially when you put it in a barrel and squish it with your feet...

Oh wait..
