I thought that some frogs could be frozen solid and revived.  But your
point is a valid one.  Most people won't be convinced until you can
answer the "Show me!" argument with a demonstration.  That will satisfy
most (not all, of course) that cryonics is a valid proceedure.

Until then, I think that the best approach would be to try to show people
that cryonics can be fit into their existing belief system as an
alternative to a standard burial (or cremation).  (Maybe as "If you are
later revived from cryonics, obviously it was not your time to go."?)
