There have been unending debate and discussion about the famous capital punishment that comes in different forms. In this world where it cannot be peaceful even for a minute is full of crimes and criminals. The world says they should be judged and that if they committed a heavy crime then they should also receive a heavy punishment. That is why there is the capital punishment for those who committed a great crime. It differs in different countries the kind of punishment and kind of crime also.
In the video above is the different facts about the capital punishment that was done in history. Even the famous people who have been found to have committed crimes cannot escape the horror of receiving capital punishment. Capital punishment in the eyes of other people is not right but why they were being practiced by other people and they even seem to enjoy watching it happen. How complicated are humans life and thinking. Even if it could be simple but people are looking for things that can be called extreme and delight in it.
But if you look into the history of there is a religious organization who have also used extreme punishment or capital punishment to torture and kill anyone that they view as an enemy of that belief and religion. Anyone who goes against them can end up receiving any of the many forms of torture they performed. They have killed many people with the excuse of doing the work of God.
In this article we want to share to you about the different practices or rituals that are being done by people around the world. We have seen a video about strange practices of burial and so we also want to share with you. We try to not just give you articles about our company but we also want you to learn something that is related of course to our business so you could also be informed. In this article is the different strange practices around the world.
If you have not yet encoubtered and have not read or write anything about this video then surely they would seem strange to you. For those who already have witnessed this kinds of practices or part of those who have this tradition consider them as normal. Some other practices can be the same even if they do not belong to same nation like the practice of the Northern Philippines in a certain municipality to hang their coffins. This is also the practiced that is done in China and Indonesia. They thought it could be the desire for their sould to go to heaven.
In other reason it could be for the bodys protection from other outside influence that could shake the coffins to be destroyed and bodies will be exposed. Sometimes cultures of people seem uncivilized and not good but they are very normal and are acceptable for those who practice it. Many people are curious about them and go to study with them.
Many people are in deep sorrow when their loved ones die. This sorrow can lead to depression to some people that they cannot easily recover. They need help until they can return to normal and can accept what had happened. It can take years and it can become a burden to the family members. But for the sake of being a family and caring for each other, they continue to take care of them. In relation to this, let us see some of the death facts.
The number one fact that is related to death is that the breath of Thomas Edison last breath is captured in a bottle. Who could think that even a breath of a person is considered important and valuable. Many people preserved photos or things of the deceased but the last breath is a new one that was heard of. I wonder what could be done about it. It cannot give power for sure and intelligence to a person. But for the sake of having unique things, it is now kept in a museum.
The second fact is that crucifixion is still used a s a death penalty in Sudan. It has been used before but it was stopped in other countries. An elephant was even hung in the year 1916 for killing a trainer in Tennessee. Around the world, their are many facts that are interesting but there are also the scary ones. You can watch all the others in the video above.
Options arise when also the time passes and other practices are discovered and observed. It is also the same in the memorial services that are done for a deceased person. In the early days, they do not practice cremation but rather want to honor the dead bodies. Even the famous religion wants to honor dead bodies and even preserved them regarding people that have high authority as somewhat sacred. They even adorn their churches with dead bodies being preserved and also bones were made as an artifact.
One friend of mine said to me before when we are having a conversation and it goes about the bones adorning a certain church that he would feel very scary and he cannot worship in peace to God if those bones surround him. They are meant to be on the ground so that they could return to it but they are admired by many people and now join worship. Maybe the dead worship together with the dead. But let us go back to the infographic above.
There are five ways on what you would choose to do with the ashes of your loved one. They can be scattered in places you wish or the deceased requests. They can be put in urns and kept inside the house. You can also choose columbarium where it is placed in a designated place in a cemetery. Another is cemetery burial and the last is a monument. Either of these ways you can choose.
have seen many symbols when you have been to a cemetery? They were used long time ago and they still exist even at this time. Some symbols have been added and that many are being changed in style and appearance as also many things today are becoming modernized. A cemetery can be one that is well maintained or a public cemetery where it is not that well maintained and so also the designs of the tombs or headstones are not that practiced and cannot be seen.
In the infographic is where we can learn about the twelve symbols that are being put up and engraved in the cemetery. They are interesting as they all have some meaning and that shows how we regard our ancestors as important and being respected. they are sometimes worshiped in other countries and their tombs are given importance as they were believed to give good luck or bad luck if their bodies are not taken care of. There are many of the beliefs and superstitions that were kept alive and intact until this time.
One of the symbols above is a Lamb that can symbolize that a child is in the tomb or Jesus which has the title of the Lamb. Another symbol is the open gate that wants to signify that a person leaves this world passing in the gate from this present world and into the world going to heaven. They are just symbols as we do not really know where did the soul of that person go to.
Death is one that cannot be avoided especially when in a battle. If you watch movies of the documented battles or even just the fiction movie battles you can see that many soldiers died on the field. As we humans living on this earth regard a dead body with respect, we also want and wish that a dead body can be buried. In this article is about the naval soldiers who are buried at sea. Let us see in the infographic about its heritage and practice.
The customs and practices done during death were also developed in the military. They are not just buried or thrown but they have their own way to honor the dead. In the case of the United States Nava Force, they also have their own practices that originated from practices even long years before. They have the practice of rank reversal with the purpose of showing that all people in terms of death are all equal. This practice came from the Ancient Romans and it is done until today.
If you read all the infographic you will know the other three practices they do to honor the dead soldiers. You will also know the practice they do when different soldiers categories are being honored. A veteran is honored not like a soldier on active duty. Soldiers make effort to recover the body of soldiers who were dead and transport them to reach their loving families. Others are buried at sea with the practice they do a long time ago.
Every country has developed their own ways of burial. They have their own practices done from the time of death until the burial after the burial. People have been searching for a rest that they do not understand what it is and how it can be attained. There is just the feeling and yearning that when someone dies you wish that he will be okay. From that comes different practices that soothe the family of the dead that includes one practice discovered in China.
In the video clip above is where archeologists conducted a study about the hanging coffins. They re-enacted what was supposed to be what the people at that time have done. Their practice was preserved maybe as a remembrance that once there was a tribe who had their own culture and belief but was massacred and wiped out of any heir. Their existence is being proved by their own ancestors whose remains are in the hanging coffins. It is not just in this area of China that they have the practice like this.
What is surprising is that there is also a place in the Philippines that have the same practice. In the Northern part of Luzon is the Sagada located in Mountain Province. The hanging coffins are one of the popular tourist’s destination aside from the famous Sumaguing Cave and other tourists destinations found there. Maybe they have the same feeling that they want their love one to have peace and go up easily as they were high above the ground.
One thing that you can not forget when someone dies is to make for them headstones. It has become a practice and it becomes useful to locate the grave of someone. In other countries, they can choose to make headstones or just write the information of the dead person in the cemented and visible tomb. As practices differ also headstones differ and can be eliminated. But most of the time there are headstones and many countries practice putting it as the tomb is not shown.
As you have seen in the infographic, there are the thirty-three kinds of symbols that are put in the headstones. There can be one of a child or any that people want to put in their family members headstone. Headstones have gained an important and many cannot just forgo it. Anyone wants to visit their family members grave once in a while due to practice or other things and the headstones serve as a marker for them so that they could find them easily and be able to pay respects and give flowers.
Death is not something that a person wants but it just happens. If a member of a military died they can put on his headstone the eagle so that it could symbolize that he is a member of the military. There are much more in the infographic that can let you think what would be the one that would be appropriate for someone that you know.
If you happen to visit a tombstone without any plan about it, what are the things to do there and enjoy your time in such a place? Here are some of the things you can do there.
Read and find the names of the people who are buried there, you might see the tomb of someone very special. If you intend there to visit, do not miss to remember the memories of your loving ones. You will not notice that tears will roll down your cheeks.
Have a bonfire in the place during the night and watch the stars twinkling in the night sky to satisfy joy and happiness. Sometimes, watching the night sky will help you remember memories of long time ago.
Walking on the tombstone is not dangerous. No ghost will catch you. You can just enjoy walking and taking pictures of yourself.
Having a picnic is one of the most wonderful thing thing that you can do in a tombstone park. There are a lot of spaces where you can eat together with the family and friends.
Outdoor activities is can not be forgotten. Outdoor game can always be done anytime and anywhere. Example of an outdoor activity is playing chess on the tombstone. You can enjoy sitting and playing together when you are in the area.
You can weed out also in the tombstone especially if there are many weeds. Well tombs are tombs and they are just nothing. In fact, people have already become dust in the grave.
Have you ever wondered how the ancient people held their funeral services when their family member dies? What about those who die during the war in the ancient times? We can think that it is quite easy to held a funeral in the old times especially that the land is vast. There are more burial places before unlike today as there are less houses or buildings built at that time. However, nowadays, it is of great concern where they would bury the dead because the population is continually increasing.
In the ancient times, the names of those who died were engraved on a tombstone. And if a person dies during a war, he was just buried on the spot where he died. There is no proper burial or a funeral service that would take for at least a week unlike these days. But in some places, it is surprising to know that there are ancient tombstones found. For example, there were ancient tombstones of the Jewish cemetery. These tombstones are burial stones in order to honor or at least remember their beloved ones who already died a long time ago.
Some tombstones found were already destroyed but there are still those which their names are readable. Also, the date of their death was chiseled or engraved in that stone. The tombstones found were mostly during the 16th and 17th centuries. The following are some samples of tombstones. Yehudah HaCohen (1666), a message is engraved on his tombstone, “May his soul be in Eden, died the beginning of the month of Elul, the year 5426 (1666). May his soul be bound in the bond of life”.
