Ok I've had be doing a bit of discussion about zombies and I thought maybe a research project would be a good idea. I figure that I should probably get some support from a few members before I submit this to Advisor. So is anybody interested?

I'll gladly join in on this; I may have a few ideas that could contribute some validity to the theory, or at least help it hold up against naysaying debunkers.

Keep me posted on this as it progresses

Most of my theories come from Max Books' The Zombie Survival Guide, and so have an actual background in pre-researched entities.

Ok I'll list off the people who are willing to contribute to the project;
Odd, bordnlazy, Elija Black, and myself Cyberdude78. Before I submit this to Advisor I would like too gather ideas and outline what exactly we would like too prove. Also if possible it would be nice too have a scholar on board to help out since I've never been on a research project.

yeah, good idea. Methinks that they know how to go about the whole "im a scientist" thing.

As much as I would like to submit the project right now I think we should get more support. Also we should probably have a scholar, this project will most likely be treated as mere science fiction or something so we'll need to act professional to get respect. I think that the main question we should try to anwser is "Are zombies scientifically possible?", or something like that.

Research paper on Haitian Vodoun zombies

Whipped that up last night. It's a starting point... tell me what you think

That was an awesome research paper. I get the feeling that if this project becomes a reality we will most likely look into Haitian Voodoo zombies. Your paper is an excellent start for the theory of narcotic induced zombification.

I'm glad you liked it; it isn't much, but I was bored, and pretty stoned, so... well, I tend to produce stuff like that

At any rate, we don't have to concentrate on Haitian zombies; I just wanted to illustrate the point that zombies ARE possible, within a given cultural context... that sort of lends some logic to the whole idea, and that might stop some of the people that (as was said above) might want to write this whole thing off as sci-fi.

I really want to see this get off the ground, though. It'd be great to get to the bottom of some of this stuff.

I'm already looking into some info for a second paper; this one will be more or less about the human brain, and what factors might eliminate higher cognizance while preserving animal instinct.

You have my approval


" A really well written paper" says me.

Although, I am thinking of the Solanum induced zombification, but I have also heard about Voodoo zombies that were caused by puffer-fish extract.

Anyhow my idea for the zombie research paper is to look at both virus induced and voodoo induced zombies and then draw comparisons. Naturally we should also look for religous zombies. I think I will submit this project as soon as we get a scholar onboard, unless anybody else would prefer otherwise.

No, I'm good with that. I think I might do some kind of paper on Solanum or something

While I don't have time to join...I can offer some suggestions...

There is apparently a type of toxin said to be used in Haiti...I think it comes from a fish...for such rituals

Check into the Litchfield Experiment, supposedly a Nazi program for reanimating soldiers.

Look into the inspirations for Frankenstein, as I believe the scientist Shelley based him on, was doing reanimation experiments with frogs.

Bring up cryogenics.

yeah, I already said that. (it was a puffer fish BTW)

Yes, the japanese and russians did experiments in the second world war, though not for re-animation. They decided to breed zombies out of "volunteers" and put them behind enemy lines.

um... I wrote a research paper on that, if anyone's interested

yeah, its all good. I'll try and write one on something, though I can't find much info on the internet a.

Ok so it seems we have some people interested. Now it's a matter of trying to get a scholar. Once we do that we should have enough people onboard for me to submit this to Advisor.

Anyhow this threads been quiet for a while so just for organizational purposes, let's take a roll call. So who's in?

Count me in! I wanted in on this the first time this came around but i lost track of this thread. Thanx for putting this back out there dude

O yeah, forgot about the research project. Will probably post it on the site, rather than here.
