Do you think more people should be cremated after they die so that we don't use up more valuable land space or continue on with the usual burials?

I really think that cremation is the way to go.

I want my ashes divided, part to be scattered over the Blue Ridge Mountains and the other half over the Pacific Ocean
(preferably near Hawaii!)

Yeah, I've never understood why anybody would prefer to be buried instead of cremated.

Please, burn me when I die, there's no way I'm coming back as a zombie or a vampire.

I think everyone should be cremated. They should also dig up all those people who've already been buried and burn them.

Really? Does that mean my soul just hangs out in my body until I disintegrate in my coffin?

If there is a soul, I'm pretty certain that it leaves your corporeal form when you die. If it doesn't, please, please, PLEASE burn me, because I would rather be destroyed than live for eternity in a coffin.

I doubt if the loved ones that DO visit their graves would appreciate them being dug up

interesting concept

I'd rather not be shut up in a box and buried in the ground though. Soul or no soul.

We depart our bodies at death.


I never understood the part about visiting graves, they aren't there.

I was just looking at grave sites

How could anyone put their loved ones in a hole in the ground??

I don't know if everyone SHOULD be cremated but that what I want for me.

First donate my body to medical science and then when they are done with it burn it.

I suppose it should be a choice, but I think cremation is still the way to go.

The world is not getting any bigger and the human race is just growing so I think that people should be creamated. If you get buried at death, all your body is doing is taking up space that the future generations will need. As for myself, I think the though of my body being stuck in the ground to rot, is just a nasty thought. When I die, I want my body parts to be given to the good of anybody that needs it. If any of my body parts could actually be used ot save someone's life one day, that makes my exsistence worth the time of my living. :)

Just to avoid zombies, yes. That or cement the graves.
