    As an Atheist, I am firm believer of the words of Richard Dawkins and follow all of his actions. Look how approving he is of being buried, how he smiles and claps.

    Yes I understand that concept of giving back to the Earth after you have died. But if an Atheist wishes to be cremated, I don't think it makes them lesser an Atheist. I am also an Atheist but I'm not sure as to how I'd like to be disposed of when I die. If it's to give back to the Earth, I'd get one of those sky burials where they chop the body up and feed it to vultures. I can't imagine maggots and insects squirming through my dead decomposing body, so I'd choose either the sky burial/have my freshly dead meat thrown to wild animals or get cremated and have my ashes be used as fertiliser for a rose garden.

    I was being facetious, I don't really praise Dawkins in that way. We should be able to do what we want with our bodies within reason.
