At an Atheist Funeral there would be a noon religious reflection on death
An Atheist Funeral
AN EUOLOGY: A talk focussing on the achievements of the dead person, and the meaning of their life. May also be given to memorise and lighten the mood
Most of Athiest Funerals have music playing maybe from a band of the dead persons favourite Artists
Readings and sermon: a psalm from the Bible is read out. It is often Psalm 23, 'The Lord is my Shepherd'
An Religous Funeral
Prayers: prayers of thanksgiving, penitence and readiness for death are said.
The committal: this is probably the most solemn moment of the service. At a burial, this is when the coffin is lowered into the grave. At a cremation, the curtains are closed around the coffin. "We therefore commit (his or her) body to the ground; earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust; in the sure and certain hope of the Resurrection to eternal life."
