Sky burial is the most logical and Earth friendly among most practices in Westernized countries.

Sky burial does not:

- pollute the Earth unlike the creamation process
- add embalming fluid and other chemicals to the Earth
- fill the Earth with boxes of bones, disturbing nature
- perpetuate the worship of humans (all of which are disgusting filthy creatures who have to bathe, perfume or cologne themselves and smear fragrances all over them and wrap themselves with clothing, trim this or that and other rituals in order to hide their filthy natures from one another)
