religion, organ donation.

i don't follow any religion, but i feel that all religions are completely acceptable theories and can possibly be valid.  i'm not an athiest or heathen, but i'm not particularly fond of any one religion. parts of all of them make sense to me, but i don't believe that religion is like a buffet where you can pick and choose parts, so i just choose not to follow anything. i believe that there are god/gods, that there is a possibility of an afterlife, or heaven, or purgatory, or reincarnation, or so on.

this all in mind, i am not a registered organ donor. because i'm not sure what happens after death, i am afraid of screwing myself over by allowing my corpse to be flayed and pillaged. do you think that it's "fucked up" and/or wrong that i choose not to donate my organs although they are all perfectly functioning, since i don't actually have any religious beliefs that dictate i shouldn't? i had a debate with a friend of mine about this the other night. he got me to feeling like i'm just a greedy jerk.

are you an organ donor? why or why not?

is there anyone in this community that shares a similar belief with me?
