The earth is 4.54 billion years old and the population is growing. I think that cremation is better than burial coz it takes a lot of space. Have you guys heard of cremated ashes used as a fertilizer to grow a tree?I think it serves a better purpose than a coffin.

Land is a finite resource and a lot of it has been allocated for graveyards. I'm hoping there comes a time when they realize how much space it's actually taking up!

 

Buried both of my maternal grandparents this year. They are both Roman Catholics and were against cremation.

Is the Catholic church against it? Didn't know that ?

Well it is really taking up space! But it will be hard for the government or private groups to require cremation to save land space. There are so many religions out there.
