Re: Would you rather to be cremated or buried?

Buried. I wouldn't want to be reduced to a pile of ashes, nor could I do that to a loved one. It's just creepy to think that the cremated don't even exist anymore. I know I'm in the minority, but whatever.

This. When I visit my mother's grave, at least I know she's there.

You think so? I just think its my grandparents' bones which are in their graves and that's it

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Re: Would you rather to be cremated or buried?

I'd like to be cremated, but in my area very few people are cremated and traditionally people are buried so I suppose I will end up to be buried.....

Re: Would you rather to be cremated or buried?

I'm an organ donor- but after that I want to be cremated.

I'm all about energy and I like the idea of my particles being released into the atmosphere, just seems a lot better than being stuffed in a box buried to be maggot food..lol

On a more serious note, I'd prefer to be cremated since I'm claustrophobic

I think it depends on religious/philosophical viewpoints. Some of us don't want to exist after we die in any shape or form. Some of us believe in a permanent existence (heaven/hell) after death. And some just don't care.

Aside from all religious mandates, I personally don't like the idea of being in a permanent place like being buried or even my ashes in an urn.
