I think in my country, they force you to buy a casket, even if you want to get cremated. That's what I heard, anyway. I think cemetaries are a really messed up idea. Necropolis... dead city... what a horrible word! And having to drive past them all the time.. yick!!! What happens when they run out of space?!
But it's nice for people to have a place to visit. But I'd rather just visit a place where ashes are scattered or something like that.
But it makes me wonder... I mean... I believe in God, but I don't have the authority to say what exactly happens to a person after death. What if cremating, or donating to science and those kinds of things... what if they somehow interfere with the process of the soul leaving the body or something like that? Anyway I'm just thinking outloud... best not to think about it at all for me...lol
