Guess have not replied yet to this thread. Personally I have no problems with cremation. Why not? I would prefer this body to be cremated after I pass on over then to be placed in some casket in some cemetery in my personnel perspective. Why not for the body is going to decay anyway and it is just a container for the soul. Further why not let your body's natural nutrients go back and replenish the earth from whince we came instead of the body being stuck in some box to eventually decay. Also I am personally so against embalming as others here. Now when that times comes and I have an option of doing something, then would personally prefer to just take a long final walk into the deep wild woods and then somewhere wild and where no one goes, just lay down and then let the time to pass on over come. And as I said to let the body after it is all said and done, to replenish the earth in a natural way. This to me would be preferrable then having to pass on in some freaking hospital for instance with having some major disease like cancer or such, which path many will follow it seems in this modern day society. But hopefully I have some more years coming for this life for life is Wonderful! Just my two cents worth.
