IMNSHO, it's not the professional archaeologist, anthropologist, or coroner you need to worry about. As Katherine said, these professionals invariably treat the dead with respect, mindful that these r ...

You're being more than a bit obtuse and disengenuous here, Vicstar. Sorry, but most of the so-called 'metaphysics' you've brought up is little more than re-hashed airy-fairy NewAge rigamarole. A nice ...
