I am Hindu, so I am obviously going to be cremated and I don't have any problem with that

Re: Would you rather to be cremated or buried?

Cremated seems to be all the rage these days, but I think I'd rather be buried. I think it would be nicer to have a place where one could visit and they'd know my body was there. It's not the same visiting the headstone of a cremated person knowing their remains are blowing away in the atmosphere somewhere having been scattered.

Cremation is mandatory for me.

Cremated. And my ashes thrown into the sea. I can't think of a better place.

Re: Would you rather to be cremated or buried?

I'd like to be cremated and then buried but that is not very environmentally friendly so I think aquamation sounds good, as long as it wouldn't be too expensive, I'd like my loved ones to be able to enjoy some of the money I would leave them. Maybe then my remains could be used to fertilize a flower bed or something. That's a place people could go if they wanted to remember me.

Re: Would you rather to be cremated or buried?

Cremated, no doubt.

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?

Don't want to be a burden to anyone. Just give my dead body to the Medicine College so they can get something good about it. It's just a piece of dead flesh, the end of all. Couldn't care less about my body once I'm dead

But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams

Cremate if I die peacefully; bury if I die getting murdered.
