As emotional appeals are all the rage nowadays when trying to make sure more people die, Laci Peterson’s mother took the stand and said a bunch of things that really make no sense at all. Amongst the claims
1) Laci Peterson has no arms in heaven, as her decomposing body lost said limbs during the months of decomposition.
2) She will be seasick for all of eternity, because she died on a boat.
Is this how a lot of people view heaven? That the final physical and mental state a person ends up in before they die reflects how they will spend the rest of eternity? I’m pretty sure that is what Sharon was getting at, although I’m not quite sure she realizes that death and the severing of each limb must have come in some discrete order. I’m pretty damn positive that Scott (or the REAL killer) did not sever anything while Laci was still alive, if at all. Therefore, if Sharon believes that Laci has no arms in heaven, she is implying that whatever happens to somebody’s body after they die affects their state in the afterlife.
Do people in heaven slowly ‘grow’ worms and maggots?
Do people that get cremated roam heaven as anthropomorphic piles of ash?
Do people that die in pain carry that pain for all eternity, effectively making the afterlife hell, regardless of where they end up?
The most frightening prospect is that these bizarre and inconsistent metaphysical ramblings of a distraught woman will eventually decide what fate Scott receives.
