Is he serious? Is he truly serious? Simon Cowell wants to freeze his dead body so that science can revive it in a 100 years or so? Well, he must be. After all, he is an egomaniac. And, he’s not the only one in the world to believe in cryonics. But let’s look at the situation realistically, shall we?
There have been scores of people already frozen in liquid nitrogen until such time when science can find a way to revitalise them. But what is the impact on the world? Let’s say Simon dies at 80 and is frozen. A hundred or two hundred years from now, he is brought back to life. He thinks he can make an impact on a future society as an 80-year old? He will first have to learn to adapt to the world. He might not have much time for that unless science can also find a way to reverse the aging process. He’ll probably be preying on pretty women who are young enough to be his great-great-great-granddaughter (or, who maybe is).
Similarly, families have decided to all be frozen. Again, if they all die at different ages and were restored, how will that affect family relationships? Take the case of the famous American baseball player, Ted Williams. There was a big brouhaha after he was frozen. First of all, he was decapitated. So, before he can be resurrected, Dr. Frankenstein will need to do some work. Secondly, some DNA samples were taken from him and some have mysteriously disappeared. How will that affect his second coming? Apparently, he and two of his children signed a pact that they will all be frozen. What happens if they return older than him? I doubt baseball will be the same game in the next century.
What happens if the individual’s estate runs out of funds to keep him frozen indefinitely? Will they just throw the body out? Or have a real funeral or cremation? These people are quite selfish in using their money to maintain their dead bodies for perpetuity. Quite conceited. As for the scientists who are wasting their time on this project rather than something much more worthwhile to the world, why didn’t they just start with a lab rat? They take up much less room.
It seems like a monumental waste of money to be spending on a scientific process that will probably all be for naught. Atheists and pure evolutionists will argue it can be done, but since I believe in a component of creationism, I declare that no mortal man can bring a dead man back to life.
