Is 'they' referring to atheists or just general dead people?

Maybe its a bit like a double chocolate muffin? Two types just to make sure?

Mind you if you are going to hell, apparently you burn for all eternity anyway so two types of incineration seems like an awful waste of energy. And what about my carbon footprint?

Don't be silly. With all the flame retardants coursing through our systems, we won't burn in hell, just get a little tanned. It will be like Spring Break. Bring hot dogs and marshmallows.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention measured PBDE levels in people by analyzing blood samples collected in 2003 and 2004 for its National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. The study found that 97 percent of Americans had flame retardants in their blood.

Flame retardants in consumer products are linked to health and cognitive problems - Washington Post

I was thinking it might be something like the word "pre-recorded" which to me always raised the question...is pre-recording the recording you do before you record something? Or maybe it is like a Chinese menu offering of "twice fried rice."

Yes 'twice fried' certainly seems like a good analogy here.
Another one I've always thought odd is refried beans. Exactly how many times have these beans been fried before I get to cook them?

Okay, I've sent it in to the Department of Redundancy Department and they will issue an official ruling, judgment and decision.

Me- No funeral, and cremated
Whatever is cheapest, simplest, quickest over & done with.

Intellectually I'd like to donate my body to science, but viscerally it makes me squeamish to consider
(then again, so does the inevitable prospect of decline, death, and accelerated decay).

So, no funeral, no pricey containers, procedures, ceremonies-
I guess incinerate me ASAP & sprinkle my dust in some dirt, maybe plant a lilac tree...
