Saw this local TV commercial last night for a local well respected funeral service. Thay have been in our town for my life time. But the commercial I watched last night took the cake for mis- labeling the obvious. When we die we are dead. We don't tranistion to some other place or some other form. WE ARE DEAD. We become worm food. period the end.

I don't want at the end of my time to "transistion" I want to just be dead. Dead sounds like it would be much less taxing on your day. Transition sounds like it's just to complicated. To many things to keep track of. DEAD zero to keep track of. I mean you could "transition" to something or some one you don't want to be. DEAD is way more simple. Even the gravestone would be complicated. " Here lies ( Insert name here). He/She tranistioned on 1/21/13 to where we have no idea, to whom, we have no idea. DEAD on the other hand is simple,. Here'lies (Insert name here ) he/she/s dead. They are under your feet as you read this headstone. I want to be old school I just want to be DEAD. I don't want to "TRANISITION" to any where. Just let me stay dead. I need the rest...........For the record, I do not beleive in a heaven or a hell. Nor a God or creator.

heh.
One of my favorite quotes.




No one gets out of living alive.


Sometimes those commercials seem so self serving.

I hear ya and agree 100% but at the same time, I feel a little bad for the Funeral Home. Can you imagine what the chat would be like in the managers office, trying to think up anything for advertising which would attract and NOT offend people on the face of it?

'Our day starts when yours ends!' .. Err no..


We work hard because you can't now!' .. Nope.. not much better...

'Try us and pass eternity in style! ..' Definitely not!


A funeral home here runs ads occasionally to and they don't sound much better than yours ..but then, what can they really say for what they do for a living? Talk about a rock and a hard place!

They could go with the old tried & true -
Scantilly-clad beauties sobbing and laying flowers on your dead body in ONE OF THEIR coffins/caskets...
So many ways to go with that one...

Do you have a problem with diplomatic phrasing? Or would you like to march up to the grand daughter of the deceased and say, "Your grandfather is dead. Get over it."

It's called tact. Clearly, you could use some.

The problem with that occupation is that it is a dying trade.

Whether or not you believe in a creator or in an afterlife your definition is flawed and incorrect. You will transition back to the elements so to speak. Because your body cannot be destroyed the matter in it will be transitioned into another state. It will be broken down to it's base elements, compounds and become part of the world again. Einstein even proved that matter cannot be destroyed only TRANSITIONED from one state to another...

Now here is where your thinly veiled dig on spirituality (albeit Christianity) is brought into play. You have no proof that the same does not happen for your consciousness. Although what you wish for is spiritual Death or an End wouldn't the joke instead be on you if this was not possible? You are gonna be so disappointed...

Yea that's exactly what I would do. I dont tend to dis-illusion a child. My way your never gonna see her in the back yard "talking to Paw PAw" why, because we were honest with her and told her he's DEAD. Not tranistioned to a new plane or a greater place, reality is reality. whether you think it's tactful or not. Death is part of life. Teling a little one a story for her emotions is one thing, out & out lieing about death is another. PAW PAW is DEAD. lil Missy ,get on with your LIFE. VERSUS Paw Paw has transitioned to a higher plane of existance or tranistioned into that coffe table over there and you can sat at Paw Paw and eat your veggies each night.

Death is not a damn transition. It's an end.

That's what I call "being a *snip*". If you don't care how you make other people feel, then you're not worth listening to.

So, let's call it what is is .......

I'm all for putting a halt to the growing horrors of P.C. but there is something to be said for just about anything in moderation. After all, another way of saying it for a funeral home would be

'Bring your body down to the people packers for processing before the disposal team gets rid of it forever! We pack 'em better than anyone!'

Something tells me that Funeral Home would go out of business for a distinct lack of business.

Ain't that nifty...

That's your opinion and you are welcome to it, but it is not a majority opinion. Most of the population iof the world believes in some sort of afterlife, and also in reincarnation. The funeral home--and everyone else--is not required to conform to your idea of reality. A funeral home will take care of your arrangements, sooner or later.

See you on the other side. I will enjoy listening to you explain yourself. Cheers.

I don't know why, but this thread gave me an idea.
"rent a mourner"
Especially for families where there might be significant property or money to "pass on" so to speak.
Perhaps you know that everyone thinks they're going to get a big piece of your leftovers, and you also know that there will be bad blood, and arguments, over who gets the piano, who gets the antiques, and who gets the cabin by the lake.

You pay in advance.

and on Funeral day, 30 to 40 very attractive people of the gender of your choosing. sit in the back of the room, crying, whispering to each other, yes whispering, but just loud enough so the words, "money" "safe deposit box" "will" "generous" "charming" and any other words of your pre-arranged list, echo ever-so-quietly around the room.

If anyone feels the need to pull a stunt like that, there's probably a reason, if you catch my drift...

Actually if you read it correct. it's open (your)mind, not mine. Death is death, me being able to prove we don't transition is a co- out. Prove we do would be more the question, and that onus is on you. It's a rant more about the pervision of our words to be PC. I mean the truth hurts, but it's the damn truth. Life's hard, get you a good helmet.

There actually are paid professional mourners. We called the "wailers"...
When I was younger I lived in New Orleans and they put ads in the paper for mourners. Its a common cultural thing. YOu can also rent your mourners from some funeral homes and they cue the different parts of the service with crying or acting foolish.. depending on how hysterical the family is.

Technically if im not mistaken... YOU are the one who made the claim...

Lets recap shall we? I think so...


When we die we are dead. We don't tranistion to some other place or some other form. WE ARE DEAD. We become worm food. period the end.


I made no claim... I just asked you to prove a negative...


Though just for fun... Heres some interesting reading...
