Incorruptible Body on Science VS Religion

In general, all living beings that died must be decomposed into the ground, but apparently, not all happened so. Like the phenomenon of bodies/corpses are still intact despite having been buried for years. This unusual occurrence has been found in many burial places of the world. Most people assume that the bodies that are still intact and not decomposed are God's miracles for those who are conscious of Him. This phenomenon becomes a sign of sanctity that the other people do not have.

This phenomenon is often called an incorruptible body. For example as in the tradition of the Catholic Church where the bodies of the saints are still intact displayed in the aquarium chests. Their bodies are embalmed or coated wax to avoid corpse body damage.
