«"Better Place" is Degrading»

Let it be said here that if I should ever die without outlining it in an official will: I do not want any religious overtone at my funeral, memorial, or burial. I am an atheist. I live as an atheist, and I should die as one.

You are free to say a private prayer for yourself. But for my sake, please don't say a public prayer. It would be degrading to the life that I lived to say I'd be in a "better place" after I die. That's what I was thinking when it was said at the Kralus' memorial. It's strange how trivial things like that can stick in your mind.

I'd also like any and all usable body parts (organs and such) to be donated to people who need them, anything that is left should be donated to science or cremated.

There is one more thing I would like to ask you all as my friends: if I should ever be in a vegetative state and kept alive on life support, please


  1. please what? D:

  2. Uh-oh, he went into a vegetative state before he could finish the post. Now we'll never know...

  3. ...for the love of god don't show me in that state on national television.

  4. @ Six Legions & Vid: Trevor gets it, as I knew he would.

    It's a South Park reference, in the Best Friends Forever episode Kenny is in a vegetative state (like Terri Schiavo was) and the lawyer lost the last page that stated what Kenny would have wanted. That episode won an Emmy.

  5. Can you please already get to the point? We know you are an atheist Good for you big deal. You don't need to make a big commotion about it. Just get to the damn point already.

  6. @ Anonymous (#5): And why not? Christians certainly make a big commotion about their beliefs, even going as far as forcing it on others.

    And I'm pretty sure the point of this post was to state my feelings about how I thought the crematorium (then an urn) is not a better place, and it's degrading to the life they lived to say it is. It's been on my mind ever since I attended the memorial service. So I've already gotten to the point.

  7. @Marf: Ahhh thanks for using Terri Schavio as an example. "Sicker than Terri Schavio, someone pull the fucking plug". I dont know who he is but those lyrics make sense to me now xD
