The dead are richer than the living.

Why do people worry about burying people with fancy jewels and clothes, coffins with velvet and lead lining, spend all that money for a funeral service when it counts for nothing? They don't ever see the coffin, so it all just seems a waste of time to bury people in the first place. If everyone was creamated, space used for cemetaries could be used for other, more important things. Do you have a good reason why people might sacrafice money, time, and effort to give the dead a coffin? And what about all those chemicals used to make them look more lifelike before burial when nobody looks at them. I don't get it.
