There are more than 300 million people in America. That will end up being a lot of dead people in 50 years and your outdated burial rituals are going to waste an inconceivable amount of perfectly good land…forever. No one is that important. Can you just bury the body long enough to have your little theatrics then dig it up, burn it and make way for the next cold, lifeless body? Good, now each town will have a recycling cemetery the size of a convenience store parking lot. As a reward I should get half of all the land I just saved you.
