What to do with the offal?

I don’t see what the problem is with ‘presumed consent’ for organ donation.

After all, when you’re dead, you’re dead. Right?

Of course, various religions and faiths have their own take on it. The Egyptians for instance, kept their insides, albeit inside jars.

When you die, your soul floats off to whatever after life you believe in, but your body stays around for a while. Surely, if your body is needed in the afterlife, surely you’ll be needing it straight from the off. After a while it all turns to mush anyway, which is no good to anyone.

What is needed is a change of attitude. Once that happens there will be plenty of spare organs to give people a new lease of life.
What do you reckon your god would say, if you went to the afterlife after donating your kidney or retina to someone? Do you really think the ultimate beings place isn’t set up for people with sight problems, or not enough toilets for the people with kidney trouble? I reckon any benevolent spirit would probably give you pat on the back for recycling.

Come on, get over your self and donate.
