Why do atheists have funerals?

Why do worshippers of atheism get dressed up in suits, dress up the CORPSE ITSELF in a suit, hold moments of silence/reflection, all in a formal ceremony for what the atheist religion dictates is nothing more than decomposing matter?

Theists' belief of man's transcendent worth answers why they do.

What is the atheists' answer?

Good point man, we should just throw all the athiests in unmarked mass graves the second they die. No reason to let their loved ones pay their last respects. They believe differently than you so fuck 'em.

Funerals are only for the living. It comforts them by offering closure. No religion required.

That's not true. The Egyptians and Babylonians weren't religious.

Do you actually know history? The Egyptians and Babylonians were entirely devoted to their religions, building their greatest monuments to their gods.

So if there ever is a zombie apocalypse, at least we can all die from the sharply dressed undead.

Don't you know anything, OP? Fucking retard. You should've stayed in school then you wouldn't be so fucktarded, you theist piece of shit.

All mainstream religions believe in the transcendental worth of the human SOUL, not the body. So theist, why go through the motions of a corporal funeral?

Funerals are more for the selfish living, than the honor of the dead.

You again.
Fuckwit, this was answered twice: for the benefit of their family and friends. It's about grieving.

Like an atheist has a god to offend or something by doing it ffs.

I'm not religious, yet I go to church with my girl sometimes, celebrate christmas and will close my eyes and bow my head for prayers with religous people. Because it doesn't harm me and it's polite.

Kill yourself.

But you faggots keep responding.

Anytime this shit is posted, you must exercise self-control and ignore it completely.

With no replies, faggot OP and others will stop posting.

It really is up to you to kill it.

Good question. Atheists get burned.

I mean that's what they should do imo. Get incinerated. It's been done since hindus, it doesn't take space ans it has less of a religious connotation.

i think i would rather dig a shallow hole in the ground for someone than drag their corpse to a fucking mountain, which btw are so far away i dont even know where i should go.

I get you man " if you hold no value in my religion, why do you keep my practices" I ask this question a lot too. like why when God loves you, non believers try to throw my religion if my face to justify their non-belief

No idea. Funerals are a pretty dumb idea and burying people in metal and concrete boxes is sheer fucking lunacy.

there are vultures everywhere, and you could use pigs if you'd prefer. Mountains aren't really necessary. In Florida we use gators.

Logan Lopez

It's about respecting the dead. Would you leave your loved ones body out to dry in the sun?

Logan Thompson

Where i live there arent that much vultures, not enough to take care of ALL the dead anyway.

We have like bears, wolfs and lynxes. none of which i have ever seen or heard of nearby, in addition its cold here, the body would just freeze and not even a wolf pack would be able to take care of it, so instead of leaving it there for months to freeze, rot and smell i would dig a small hole.

Athieanon here. I vote straight to the incinerator. You don't memorialize people's severed limbs and shit so why make a big deal about the rest of the meat bag? It's stupid as hell. They should just give out memorial plaques or trophies or those window stickers you seen on the back of really shitty cars that say "R.I.P. James "Uncle Jimbo" Durquette 2-31-2013" or whatever.

Ayden Evans

Yeah, you don't want to encourage wolves and bears to start going after humans, but vultures are pretty good at eating corpses, you don't need a bunch.

atheists care about other people because they have empathy
theists "care" about other people because their imaginary friend wants them to and will punish them if they don't

Or perhaps donate their encasing (that holds the illusion that is "consciousness", per Abbot Dennett) to "science", like it was done with the bloated, cancer-riddled carcass known with the arbitrary appellation of "Christopher Hitchens".

The bodies of the self-avowed "rational","logical","science-based" "skeptics" truly can be a testament of "evolving" (or deviating) from being an or the image of "God".
