Have they ever figured out exactly where the bodies come from?
luzhishen, are you confusing Body Worlds with Bodies The Exhibition? The latter has been denied exhibition at many museums because its cadavers are unclaimed bodies that come from China. Body Worlds owners insist every cadaver used in its exhibition is from a consenting donor. Understandably, it has not released all of its paperwork on these cadavers because of privacy issues. (So of course the skeptics cry fowl.) Too few people consider donating their bodies to science the way it is. If their records and names were released upon such a donation, there would be even fewer.
Jesus died on the cross, was buried, and rose again from the grave. His wounds were healed. Nobody pumped him full of plastic and put him on a skateboard. I can only hope and assume that our bodies truly are no longer needed when we pass into the spiritual world.
I saw the exhibition in Philadelphia. I found it to be creepy to the max.
My comment wasn't meant to be sacreligious or blasphemy, not sure if the people that voted my comment down thought that's what I was doing, or maybe are athiests. But consider what actually does happen at "the end". At the battle of Little Bighorn after Custer was defeated, the indians mutilated the bodies of the soldiers (cut off their hands, feet...etc.) so that they could not use them in the afterlife. Going through the afterlife as an action figure doesn't sound like fun.
This is creepy x 100.
