Not Even Up For Discussion

The media are giving a high profile to the story of a young person who has won the right to have her body cryogenically preserved against the day when the disease that killed her can be cured.

And no-one I've read or listened to has thought to ask why a soul would want to come back into a superannuated and damaged body. All start from the assumption that death is the end and souls are a figment of the religious imagination.

Where's the Archbishop of Canterbury when you need him?

Obviously I wouldn't expect a contemporary newshound to even consider interviewing a spiritualist or a spirit medium or a parapsychologist or anyone like that.
