Sorry Stardove,


YOur link still doesn't work for me.   In fact often my own links don't work.  Ever since they changed this forum from the one before this one, I've had trouble posting links.




Please report this to Staff at community@beliefnetstaff.com.  Yesterday I finally reported at times there are glitches in making of links.  Most of the time links work like they should, but I experienced a number of times lately where the title and URL address both show up.

This not knowing where or how to bury a body is the weirdest thing I've ever heard of.   They're supposed to belong to a church.  Can't they get some advice from them?   Maybe they think if they wait long enough, he'll return.



The family is fighting over the where part of the burial.  Too bad Michael did not express his wishes.

Enough with the Michael Jackson crap already!



Don't talk to US.  Take it up with whomever is forcing you to open and read threads you know you're not interested in.  I pity you about that.  The rest of us have a choice not to read what we don't like.

I agree with Marcion: Enough with the little bugger already!


However, like others who couldn't care less about Jackson, I nevertheless continue to revisit this thread out of some sort of morbid curiosity, I guess.  I can't think why else.


I mean, you've got this famous guy where, even after several autopsies, there is still no documented cause of death, and whose body has seemingly disappeared.  This is about as weird as it gets!

Once the 'spirit' or 'soul' or essence of life - or whatever you want to call it - has left the material body, then the body itself is of no more use to anyone.  The best thing for bodies, then, would be to simply cremate them and either put the ashes in a little box (as we did with our beloved cat) or let them blow away in the wind.


My father's ashes are in a vase that my brother and his wife keep on a mantelpiece, which seems a little weird to me for some reason.  But, then, I'm no one to talk, because we have our cat's box of ashes on a window ledge, with a photo of the cat in a little frame on top.  For some reason, I like to look at that little box and the photo.  It's as if our cat is still with us in some way.


But, still, they're just ashes.


On the other hand, people like to walk around graveyards and look at headstones and think about the people who might be buried under them, especially if you're strolling around a cemetary where you know some well-known person is buried.  And, if you've got your own ancestors buried in a family group that goes back to the 19th century, you look at the names of those people who came before you, and this is a moving experience.


Of course, plain common sense tells you that, after so many years, there cannot be much left of your ancestors' earthly remains.


One of my friends said once that, when she dies (hopefully not for many years yet), they can put her body out with the trash as far as she's concerned!  Because she certainly would have no use for it anymore.




I think after death solutions to burial and creamation are often informed by family tradition. There are plots in my grandparents' burial area that will not be used but my parents, my father's parents, at least one aunt is buried there. There is a traditional large gravestone there in a very old Catholic cemetary.


My mother's mother was the oldest of 11, only 3 of whom lived to adulthood. When I was a small child that grandmother would take us with her to visit the cemetary. She respected us as children and we respected her visiting graves. It wasn't sad.


I still have a dried rose from the blanket of roses I bought for my husband's casket. He is buried in a Catholic section of a prominent local cemetary. There is also a military section.


Funerals and burials are for the living. So are memorials.


The whole MJ scene is just plain weird.

RIP Michael Jackson I hope you find in your after life experience  happyness and fulfillment .


 


My concern is that MJ faithfull fans make of him a subject of worship, Surprised some of his videos make him look as a very  powerful superbeing.  Check out Earth Song, he resemble a very angry semi-God reverting all wrong doing .Embarassed

New flash of the day (at least for me) Michael had an older love child.


Omer Bhatti : Michael Jackson-Pia Bhatti Love Child


A mysterious man who was given a front row seat to the memorial to the late King of Pop has been named as Omer Bhatti, Michael Jackson's love child.


You can search the name Omer Bhatti and find all kinds of stories.  The above link has pictures comparing Jackson and Bhatti around the same age.  Also a picture of him on the front row of Memorial.  Jackson death is the story that just keeps on giving.  I also read of a DNA would be done to satisfy the Jackson family.


Click here for pictures of Omer and Jackson when Omer was a child.

Have they done the DNA already?  The last I heard is that he was going to pursue DNA testing.
