Would it disturb you much if, upon your death, your body were simply thrown into the woods and left to rot? Why?
I don't think I'd mind much. Probably because I'll be dead. Not like I'll be using my body anymore. It's kind of the same way I feel about organ donation. If my lungs are good enough for someone else to use after I die, they might as well get them. Not like I'll be doing a lot of breathing when I've got six feet of dirt piled on top of me. I actually think, if I had the choice, I'd rather be cremated. Why should my rotting corpse take up space?
