I don't so much buy into the belief that there will eventually be walking dead shambling around waiting to pounce on unsuspecting coeds and turning them into hamburger.

What I do envision is a world altering event in which most of the survivors are shell shocked, suffering from severe PTSD or just this side of catatonic.  I see people that have few if no survival skills turning to any source of sustenance available, even if that source happens to be you.

I think that the end of their normal way of life, plus the slide into cannibalism will break their minds to such an extent that it will result in the formation of a subculture of feral, almost subhuman beings akin to the creatures in ‘I Am Legend’ (except without the super strength, etc…)  These are the Zeds I fear and prepare for.  The ones that want to eat you, but can reason, learn and are driven by the fact that you might have more than just the meat on your bones.

Yup, I see zombies everyday at work.

I see dead people zombies

I believe in bio warfare gone wrong/ scientific experiment hits public a la 28 days later.
So true walking undead, no.   Expanded zed group to include ragers as zeds?  Yes
Possible?  Probable?
If you can be prepaired for this, you can be ready for just about any apocolypse scenario.
Except when skynet takes over.  Then John Connor is our only hope.

I don't... BUT this forum gets me thinking about "post" SHTF scenarios and how I'll protect my wife and child.... as well as myself.  These guys have some great ideas on survival and self preservation.

I believe in them for the same reason others believe in Heaven.
To some pearly gates and golden roads are where they want to spend eternity.
With peace and love.

To me... Having free reign of the land being allowed to defend and survive without the
confines of modern law that has been abused and twisted to the benifit of the criminals.
Now that... That is Heaven to me.

I don't believe in zombies. I think they are possible.

Sheeple are led to believe with feelings. I like to think with reason.

Personally, it's a fun way to prep.
However, the possibility of a weaponized virus that could cause rage zombie/infected type behavior is a possibility.A weaponized rabies virus would be a horrifying terror weapon.Also, check out this article for more possibilities(it's been posted before):http://www.cracked.com/article_15643_5-scientific-reasons-zombie-apocalypse-could-actually-happen.html

Look at Katrina, then switch out what just happened in Japan and put it in the same location.

There are real zombies. Google the serpent Android the rainbow. But I expect a version of rabies to be the cause of a "movie" outbreak.

Why do I believe in Zombies, um 'cause they are real.
Real Zombies
Is it likely that the walking dead will someday plague us, probably not. Is it possible that some mad scientist gets bored and figures out how to make a weapon from one of the creatures from the link? I guarantee that right now there is a group of "scientists" working on that, and other bio weapons that would completely blow our collective minds.
Me personally I like how "Zombie" survival can cover bio, no-trad, and traditional warfare all in one subject. It's just the perfect euphemism for those of us that are bright enough to understand the fragility of society.
Plus the looks on peoples faces when you mention the zombie apocalypse.... priceless!
Link Posted: 4/2/2011 7:49:00 AM EDT
A lot of us use zombies as a metaphor. It basically means any type of disaster. Katrina, tornadoes, civil unrest, nuclear disaster, or even zombies themselves.  I prep for all of the above.

Classic example.

The zombie metaphor allows me to prep for various disaster scenarios while wrapping a minimum of tinfoil around my head and maintaining a sense of humor.

I met a zombie today!  It spoke of how "it is all Bush's fault" and how "Obama saved the economy" but refused to acknowledge that the all praised one has spent trillions of dollars.

Zeds are out there.     I believe.

Why do people believe in zombies?  People don't need to believe in zombies when they've seen the living dead.

Here's a man who's been certified as brain dead many times, yet he still walks and talks, all in a typical zombie-like manner:



What more proof do you need?

I don't know whether the above individual eats human flesh or not, but there's no way that I'd put my hand in HIS mouth!!!

I don't know if I can say I believe bloody mangled creatures will soon walk earth but I can say this. As humans we are limited to certain "beliefs" of this happening (unless of course you are bradley cooper in the movie "limitless") I bet when the first people walked the earth they imagined flying...guess what, flying has become a reality....we have developed things in this world that some could only fathom and I surely would not totally eliminate all things.

Some people will never believe in zombies, even if a zed is gnawing at their arm.  "Good gracious, sir, why are biting me.  Please stop, sir.  PLEEEAASE !!!"

Zombie denial, it's a killer mindset.  Don't let it happen to you.

EXACTLY! I dont know how many times ive seen it in movies where some dumbass walks up to a stranger (because they didnt look well), gets all up in their face, SEES their lower jaw ripped off, etc. with wounds that would leave anyone normal, dead dead dead, and then has the testicular fortitude to ask them "Hey buddy, are you ok? You dont look so good" THEN has a look of shock on their face when their newfound friend is gnawin their shit like it was a burger dropped in the middle of ethiopia.

I know at least 3 people in my neighborhood that would do just this same thing, and YES Ive already inventoried their shit. lol ITS MINE MINE MINE MINE MINE!

Ha !  Even if they're not zombies, I try and stay away from freaky people.  Sure, some may be deserving of sympathy and kindness, but I not so highly evolved that I can tell who's deserving and who's a flesh eating zombie.  My momma told me not to get in the car with strangers, and I gotta figure that letting strangers bite me isn't much better.

You know that there will be some people who just want to "help" the zombies.  "If we could just talk to them, we could convince them that eating human flesh is bad."  Or, "I'm sure that we can negotiate a win-win solution with the zombies."  How can you have a win-win with the flesh-eating undead?  I'm all for being a nice guy, but you gotta draw the line somewhere.
Link Posted: 4/15/2011 1:02:32 PM EDT
REAVERS!!  Now, those are possible.  "I reckon some folk, just go out too far into the dark, and ain't got nothin' in 'em to deal with it."

I don't *believe* in zombies.  It's funny to go shoot paper zombies, to read zombie stories, and make jokes about zombies.

Morally bankrupt sociopaths?  Yeah, I don't believe in them, either.  They're real.

Yes, deep down, people know the truth.  With something as big as a zombie apocolypse on the horizon, how could we not know?  It's just that most people are in denial.  They don't want to admit that the kindly grandmother next door will turn into a flesh-eating zombie.
