Johnny in OKC BS: Digging up Mummies on TV (62* d) BS: Digging up Mummies on TV 25 Mar 04

Last night on PBS they were digging up Inca mummies.
The night before, they were digging up mummies in China.

Why is this okay?

I'm all for science, and I can see why they are getting
valuable anthropological info, but can't they get the
same information from pots and bricks?

"As you see by looking at this woman's pelvis ..."
I really don't think the woman intended to have her
pelvis examined on TV, if she could have imagined
such a thing.

"Those awful LOOTERS have been plundering this grave ..."
but aren't the scientists doing the same thing? At least
the looters only took the gold, not the bodies.

These mummies, weren't they actually people at one time?
Don't they deserve to be left in peace?

I'm gonna be cremated. It's all paid for.

Love, Johnny
