    Matter can't be created nor destroyed?

    If matter can not be create nor destroyed, If a body is cremated does it remain the same mass?

    Matter cannot be created or destroyed, but it can take other forms of equal mass. Water sitting outside can evaporate into vapor of equal mass, which enters the atmosphere. We don't see it, but it is there. There are always the same number of atomic particles.

      You answered the question in more clear way.

    Mass = Density x Volume

    Of course the mass will differ because the density and volume of the body had been changed, but the matter of the body didn’t destroy it is now in the form of carbon, so it had been changed to another matter

      I think that Old-Empresario give the best answer for your question

    Matter can be destroyed; turned into pure energy. This happens every second at the core of the sun. Two hydrogen nuclei are forced together to become a helium nucleus which has slightly less mass than the two separate hydrogen nuclei. The extra, unneeded mass is "excreted" as gamma radiation.

    Matter has been created in the laboratory with high-energy lasers. Suddenly two particles appear in a magnetized bubble chamber -- one (electron) spinning off in one direction, the other (positron) spinning off in the other.

    Yes, a body cremated remains the same mass. Fire merely turns the body into water vapor and ash. The same atoms remain unchanged, except that they are no longer associated in their prior molecular forms.

    But beyond this, though, both matter and energy can be created and destroyed, if you know the mechanics of creation. The "create" act is the Truth of any creation. If you take a piece of matter and "create" it, it disappears. It acts like a toggle. If you know the truth, the truth will set you free. This goes for every persisting condition. Truth takes the time out of an object or condition.

    Not knowing a creation, rotates the creation into the time stream, giving it persistence.
