Re: Cremation vs. Burial
i don't really care, except in a philosophical way. i mean, i'll be dead, and i have no belief in any part of "me" hanging around after death and watching the proceedings.
but in a philosophical sense, i'm with you. feed me to the fishes, or feed my ashes to the plants; i like the idea of returning to the life cycle, and find elbalming gross and counter-life. that shell is just meat, it needn't be venerated and protected.
my dream funeral (*heh*) would be a viking one -- send me out in a boat set on fire.
