Im not sure if this is the right place for this thread, if not please feel free to move it. Im just really curious and would like to know what
everyone else thinks on this subject. It concerns mummies and maybe further, the exhumation or disturbance of a grave or final resting place of a
human. I do understand , even though do not totally accept the exhumation of a body for forensics in a suspicious death, but what about mummies that
have been undisturbed in their resting place for thousands of years.
I know that science wants to know how people lived. what caused their death and what else can we learn from these mummies that have lain for
centuries, undisturbed, but is it right, should we be exhuming these bodies in the name of science or better knowledge and learning? I myself find it
interesting just watching the shows of these explorations, but I still harbor a feeling that it is not right and that these people should be left to
their final resting places. I know that I would not want someone digging me up years after my death just for the sake of science. Just curious as to
everyones thoughts on this subject.
