    I want to be cremated and have my ashes thrown into space. Dedication to the Faustian spirit of the white race
    All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream at night, in the dusky recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity. But the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams, with open eyes, to make it possible.

    Vanessa,

    You are completely cirrect about psychopaths.
    They do understand the difference between right and wrong, it just doesn't mean anything to them. Recent research's points the finger at a neurological disorder which may be present from birth, perhaps the damage is even caused at birth.
    Only the most extreme turn into killers, the majority are succesfull in life.
    Due to their ruthlessness and lack of remorse, they tend to excel in things such as business where they tend to climb the ladder of promotion at their colleagues expense, etc.
    I read once that the perhaps as much as 1 in 20 people display pychopathic symptoms to some extent. It is said that we all probably know one person in our lives who is a psychopath.
    Actually, I think one of my friends displays some classic symptoms.

    Anyway, going off topic agains, so I'll stop now

    Ritual burial is one of the earliest and most primal forms of religious expression. Just about every culture on earth has some form of burial ritual or procedure. Even some of our very distant pre-Sapiens ancestors practiced some form of ritual burial.

    For the modern atheist, however, it makes little sense to be concerned over any form of burial, other than for family dignity, and for remembrance for loved ones still alive, and possibly for the use for descendants. For myself, my only personal concern which favours cremation, is that one hears all these stories of people being buried while still alive. Thus, if cremated, this concern is dealt with effectively.

    I would then desire to be cremated, and my ashes contained in a memorial to be seen by my descendants. Another modern consideration, is to keep a genetic sample preserved, for later research of my descendants, possibly regarding genealogy.

    I'd rather die from lack of oxygen in a comfy coffin than in the searing flames of a crematorium. Apart from that cremation is a big no-no for Catholics.
    And all my youth passed by sad-hearted,
    the joy of Spring was never mine;
    Autumn blows through me dread of parting,
    and my heart dreams and longs to die.

    - Nikolaus Lenau (1802-1850)

    Real misanthropes are not found in solitude, but in the world; since it is experience of life, and not philosophy, which produces real hatred of mankind.

    Yup, a bodily ressurection will be difficult when all you've got is a pile of ashes

    You prefer dying slowly over instantly? Cremation takes seconds.

    Nothing is impossible for God! If he can resurrect a body eaten away by worms, and possibly even bones which are powderised, I am sure he can resurrect ashes

    Cremation actually takes several hours. This is where Holocaust critiques come in. If cremation did take only seconds, it would be much more difficult to question the Holocaust. You have a mass of flesh which has to be burned at a very high temperature to vaporize all the carbon and residues, then you have to deal with the bones which are calcium phosphate and won't burn under normal circumstances.

    I apologize for the misinformation. Apparently it takes 2 to 3 hours. Still better than waiting to suffocate in a very small, dark coffin 6 feet under the ground.
