    No, it's actually considered holy ground.

    I don't like tombs and coffins. If everyone got cremated and buried in a little box, then that would save space. I wonder if anyone ran a calculation - given the current rate of population growth, in what year will the entire land area of the earth be 100% graveyards?

    No, and here's how: Plant lots of trees and flowers so that graveyards can be places of solitude and peace. Build meandering footpaths for joggers/walkers and benches where people can sit and soak in the beauty of it all.

    Death may be the end of life as we know it, and graveyards can be places where the living and the dead can co-exist.

    they should just burn the dead and be on with it. OOOOOR you cna go along with the Pygme [sp?] tribes, and just eat dead family members! When I was younger, the town we lived in had a grave yard with a brick wall built into the ground where it was higher, so if you were to walk across the graveyard to the far end, there would be a drop down and a brick wall if you were on the sidewalk below, adn there were feet sticking out of it XDD it was the funniest thing ever.

    no.. just because theres tons of space. and it also depends what you consider a waste of space....an old store could be a waste of space, or an unused parking lot

    so if a graveyard is a waste of space than so are a lot of other places

    ITS A GOOD USE OF SPACE

    kind of.

    people missing their dead loved-ones do appreciate somewhere quiet where they can go focus their grief, and graveyards provide this. they also provide a physical space saying "this person was special and existed". by showing respect for their lives by giving up some space to a memorial we are also saying "we beleive life is precious"

    BUT... yea i do often think there must be anotther way of providing for those things without using so much land.

    YES. We bury people in coffins. The coffins do not degenerate back into the earth. Our bodies rot in a box. We are basically burying trash in the ground. Nothing decomposes, nothing gets returned, it just sits there. I believe you should either, A) Get cremated. Or B) Donate your body to science.

    Unless you want to bury your loved one without a coffin of course, then by all means, bury em'. But if you're gonna use a box, just burn em'.

    Where else are you going to lay the deceased?! Imagine how horrible it would be if they just shot the deceased into space like they wanna do with Earth's garbage just to conserve space. Not everyone wants to be cremated (sp?)...

    NO!!! Its a holy place which shows honor th the dead.... Deffanatly not a waste of space

  • 1 decade ago

    oi! would you want someone saying that about your own grave or your family's? No they are not a waste a space...its a resting ground.

  • No, It doesn't mean just cause one person dies he must be forgoton . Memories of him passes on with other and this reminds them when they visit graveyards.. if you understand them you will knw
