Okay let's say they are coffins. But let's do some out of the box thinking. Since the economy is in the crapper could they be for all of the weak that might suicide themselves rather than face the rigors of getting by on hard physical labor as opposed to paying someone to do it? Add in the Rambo-wannabes that think they are survivalists that lack critical skills? The victims of mass panic and looting? And so on...
As for the FEMA camps, could they be cheap villages for those willing and able to go on but lack self-sufficiency? Perhaps they are for chosen people but for the skills that they do have and not for the negativity that would hamper such as criminal behavior and poor work ethic.
I don't know. Just a different thought about it all.

yes because dead things haven't been "contaminating" the ground through most of the Earth's history.... are you for real?
While the origins of the theories are unclear, there are blog postings that date back to December 2007 (AboveTopSecret.com), although the majority of postings have come within the latter half of July.
And, according to Vantage Products Corporation Vice President of Operations Michael Lacey, that’s exactly when the calls started pouring in.
“It’s been going on for quite a while, about a week,” Lacey said.
Lacey maintains that the theories regarding the property, and what’s on it, aren’t quite accurate.
The “coffins” aren’t coffins at all, according to Lacey. Instead, they are burial vaults, “the outer container for caskets,” Lacey said, placed in the ground before the coffin to protect the coffin and maintain level ground above.
There are currently 50,000 of these burial vaults on the property, according to Lacey. As the vaults were placed on the site around 1997 or 1998, there may have been as many as 70,000 or 80,000 to begin with.
“It’s nowhere near the quantity they talk about on the Internet,” Lacey said.
This quantity of burial vaults, Vantage’s Standard Air Seal model in black, also the least expensive model and the most in-demand, was made to cater to what Lacey calls the funeral industry’s “pre-need.” This “pre-need” occurs when people make arrangements for their funeral before they actually pass away, so that the family doesn’t have to go through the perceived stress of making the arrangements. When these arrangements are made, the products are paid for; obviously, though, they are not yet needed.
So, Vantage stores the product until the person dies, and the product is needed.
Further, pallets of the burial vaults are moved truckloads at a time, as there is space for a palate at the
Contrary to the beliefs of the theorists, then, the burial vaults aren’t owned by the government, or FEMA. Instead, they’re owned by individuals, or not yet sold.
“They’re not owned by any one individual, company or the government,” Lacey said.
Further, Vantage leases the land, located at 1200 Madison Industrial Boulevard, from Conyers Welding & Supply and has for four to five years, a fact confirmed by Conyers Welding & Supply. Conyers Welding & Supply took over the lease when the property was purchased from Robert Usury in 2000. Usury purchased the property in 1989, according to information provided by the Morgan County Tax Assessor’s Office and the Morgan County Online Public Property Portal.
The answer as to why the vaults are being stored in Madison? To put it simply, the Covington-based manufacturer got a good deal close to home.
“It was the most cost-effective place,” Lacey said.
