    Is this ethical? Is it Biblical?

    Biblical?  Who cares?

    It's creepy and I think disgusting.  I have zero interest.

    I'm ok with it, after all the 21 ounce human soul has left, and I think it has some real educational value for those of us who don't otherwise do much dissecting of cadavers.

    If the humans had freely donated their bodies I would be okay with it--but it doesn't seem like that is the case.

    Then again is it really much different than putting mummies on display?

      To me it is because the bodies are of people who were living recently (have living relatives) and may have been acquired dishonestly or through abuse of power.

        I watched a TV Programme this weekend where they had some of the bodies on display. They were advertising the opening of a new exhibition. It got me thinking about how respectful we were for our dead  and the things that they owned in the past. Their posessions were like treasures, their bodies were mourned. Yes I believe that the souls of these people has gone to a better place but I began to wonder avout the moral side of displaying dead bodies for the sake of education. Have we gone so far that we are no longer able to learn through pictures, models and diagrams? Why do we need the shock factor of real bodies? HMMM still mulling it over.
