    I have no use for my body after I die which is why I am an organ doner. Once science has made use of any of my organs that have not been destroyed by whiskey and cigarettes, I would prefer to be cremated. I don't see the point of spending god only knows how many thousands of dollars on a box thats going to rot in the ground. I want my ashes spread somewhere in Central Park.

    For eastern catholics burial is the only option.

    Cremation was once used to deny the resurrection of the body. The body is to be respected as it has been nourished by the sacraments and is to be buried in consecrated ground

    I don't know- with so many people being cremated- where's the family plot to go visit? Relatives have to go to someone's house to visit/talk with their deceased loved one(s)?
    And how do you spread some ashes and keep some?
    Sounds confusing- but I guess I should do more looking in to.

    I'm an organ donor, and I want to be cremated. I want my ashes scattered at the Grand Canyon.

    I do not want to be cremated. Fear of fire for some reason. I have already told my family if they cremate me I will foreve haunt them.

    Burial is old and outdated. Once a body is dead and any of the organs harvested because of the wishes of the deceased that they want to donate them to science, cremation is a cost efficient and space saving answer to a very overcrowded earth. If burial is something that is so vitally important, why not bury small urns with the ashes of the deceased? Many more areas of land could accomodate more people and we could use areas that would otherwise have been set aside for cemeteries and use them to plant forests and parks for the living to enjoy that would also help our environment. A cemetary with huge burial plots are wasted land that don't benefit anyone.

    Any salvage operations that can be done on the body for the benefit of other suffering humans ... that is what would be important! My real remains would be the real me, which is not the body, so I'd be long gone to care about the rest of the rituals!

    I plan to leave whatever organs can be used, and then to be a cadaver in a lab for study. God doesn't need my body.

    When I'm dead, my body is just an empty husk - so no - don't care about it. Cremate me - bury me - just dump me in a river someplace - all the same to me.

    I thought of being cremated and I told my husband that he then could take me home with him and put me on a shelf. He did not go for that idea. I really don't care either way. I know that I won't be there either way.

    Yes, I will be cremated as were both my parents. I would like my ashes to be put in the yard and a tree planted on top of them. One of my children will probably live in this house so I will always be here as well.

    I wouldn't really mind either way...that was until I saw how Hunter S Thompson wanted to go: have his body shot out of a cannon.
    That just sounded so cool that I am pretty sure I wanted to stay in tact so I can be shot out of something.

    I want to be thrown in the ocean or buried without a box. I want my molecules to go back into the chain of existence, not just turn into greenhouse gases or be preserved forever in a box.

    We tried to "scatter" my dad's ashes in a river he always liked. The forest rangers were nearby (it's totally illegal to dump human ashes in a river) and we were nervous and didn't do a very solemn job of it. Luckily, we all have a good sense of humor, as did old Dad. So, it makes a great story although at the time it was pretty dark-comedy.

    Is it really?

    Don't we, as Americans, deserve a proper burial as we see fit? WOW...there it is again, BIG BROTHER getting into what should be personal matters.

    Would the government prefer we bury our loved ones behind the house like a household pet>?

    Again, HOW DARE the government say that we cannot put a biodegradable substance into a public river? (As long as it does not pose a health threat, which ashes cannot...any bacterium would be destroyed in the process,)

    I'm incensed because I plan to have the same thing done with my ashes.

    I think you have to get a permit, maybe. I don't blame other people for not wanting to splash around in a river that's got some dead guy's ashes mixed into it. We were bad.

    I intended on being vacuum sealed in thick plastic, in a lead sealed coffin, inside of a sarcophagus, in a large tomb... but that was before my commitment of will to never die.....
