Creepy. Way Creepy.

Is anyone out there going to see that "Bodyworlds 3" sideshow at the Science Center? If so, can you help me figure out why this isn't a deplorable way to treat human corpses? Link here, but warning-- it's creepy. Just in case you didn't get the title of this post?

If there are any moral theologians who read this blog, could you weigh in on the morality of this?

Preserving the human body in it's flesh is just too personal! It is unnecessary and disrespectful. With artists and plastics, a similar study could be had in accuracy, but without exploiting true human flesh.

What are they going to do next? Preserve people in their entirety, so Aunt Mildred can keep Uncle Herbert's body displayed in his favorite Lazy Boy?

I don't know. I think it's interesting.
