Ive been to a few funerals and they've always been in a church, but thats not my thing! When my family and friends die, I dont want to be sat in an artificial house surrounded by gargoyles and images of an artificial lord that has never existed listening to a deluded priest who has never even met the recently deceased! So how does an atheist bury a fallen soldier! Is there a practise in today's world for such a sorry occasion???
If not, isnt it about time we thought up such an idea?
Also, what would you like to be done with your dead remains? Personally, I'd like to be given away to science. Im pretty sure that science has a purpose ay? ;-)
excellent link! Thank you Helen!
:) I wonder if American Humanists do the same thing? Probably.
