I signed up to be an organ donor a while back because I know there is a shortage of them and hopefully i'll be able to help someone once I'm gone. I remember asking my mom if she would do it and she had the "hell no" look on her face. She gave no reason why she wouldn't, but the last thing I want to do is press my beliefs on someone else.
I was just thinking about cemeteries and they seem like a waste of land and money. I know they give people comfort ,but gosh. I just kinda dislike meaningless traditions.
I know cremation and donating your body to medical science are alternatives to burials, but does anyone know any others or have any opinions on it?

Humans have this nasty habit of considering themselves outside of nature. I totally agree with organ donation, but I also believe that cremation is the way to go. Once I die, I'll have my organs donated for those who need them, and I'll have my body cremated and my ashes scattered in a forest or some virgin place of nature. I think that I, as a life-form, can make a final contribution of myself by helping nature by providing nutrients. That way, the human body goes "full-circle" from misc. organic nutrients, to a growing embryo, to a child, to an adult, to a corpse, then back to misc. organic nutrients.
