"Thanks everyone.  I am getting cremated.  I just read "Stiff"; The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers, (fascinating) and the thought of being buried makes me ill. Where they get the feet pointed East bit, I have no idea.  …"

"Why is there an assumption that God is in the east, though? Maybe he'll be coming from a northnorthwesterly angle? >.> Or is there an assumption that God is coming from China?"

Burial facing east for the second coming

I work with a woman who worked and a mortuary and she said that most burials are feet positioned so that when we rise from the grave we will stand up facing east to greet god.   I was furious ...for a moment.Then I realized that it doesn't matter one flip how I am buried.  But for them to just automatically do this is silly.  Actually, I will not be buried I hope (still haven't made my wishes known-shame on me).  Does anyone else find this silly and irksome?

Hi Marcia, and welcome to this friendly meeting place where freethinking atheists recognise that gods are fictional and religion is a fraud used to control vulnerable superstitious people;
and how tragic and inexcusable it is that women and minorities have been oppressed these last two thousand years and even longer.

Terry Meaden
founder of the busy group "ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Earth, Humans, Religion, Evolution, Darwin..." with its 275 discussion topics. We invite you to join us.
