I was wondering if we should respect dead bodies. The thing is that I feel I cannot show a disrespectful behavior towards a dead relative or a pet, but I cannot find any logical/rational argument for it.
I mean, I think there is no practical reasons to show respect for the dead, you don't get anything and that person is dead (I'm atheist) so it makes no sense.
So I thought it is only backed by our irrational feelings embedded in our biology. But, maybe there's some biology rationale behind this because it gives us some advantage or benefit... I don't know, so here I am.
