My bf asked last night how the following was possible. (and I’m asking if it’s even true).
According to him, when an aborigine passes away, they burn his/her body, but they save the heart after the body was burned. So he was asking how the heart doesn’t burn but the body does.
So, there are a couple questions here.
1)Do the Australian Aborigines practice (or have practiced) this?
2)Do they remove the heart first and that’s how it’s not burned (contingent on “yes” to #1)
3)If the above answers are “yes” and “no”, how is it that the heart doesn burn?
