While I'm typing this Diary Of The Dead is on the TV. Seems to me that the only way the zombies could ever over run us, as they do in the movies, is if we were stupid enough not to shoot them in the head right at the beginning! Mind you, what is it the one legged preacher says in Dawn Of The Dead?
"People still believe there's respect in dieing!" (Or something like that. . .)

Hey there. I wanted to answer a post you made awhile ago on this thread. Sorry that I forgot to get around to it until now. School just started so I won’t be able to be on ATS as much as I’d like to.

also, sorry ahead of time for being long winded here. I just love talking about zombies.

As to your question about how the zombies originally reanimated, I assume you are asking about the George A. Ramero Zombie movies. (Night of the living dead, dawn of the dead, day of the dead, land of the dead, and diary of the dead.)

It never conclusively says. In the original black and white version of night of the living dead they do mention radiation from a returning space probe as a possible reason, but never say definitively.

It is never (to my knowledge) mentioned anywhere in his movies how exactly it started, and that is something I thought was one of the creepiest parts. If you don’t know how it started you can’t figure out how to stop it.



That, which is unknown and unseen, always commands the greatest fear.


I think the above quote was from H.P. Lovecraft, but I’m not sure.

Anyway, the remake of “Dawn of the Dead”, as well as numerous other zombie films makes it out to be an illness. This was probably because of the whole being bitten turns you into a zombie thing expressed by Ramero. But the human mouth is a filthy thing. Even before death the human mouths swim with harmful bacteria barley kept in check by our immune system.

Any deep tissue bite from a human can cause sepsis, as well as a host of other infections and problems. I would assume that a zombie’s mouth is even rifer with disease, and I assume the bites from a zombie going untreated would quickly lead to the person’s demise.

So It could have been seen as a disease, except that in Ramero’s movies everyone that dies comes back, not just those infected through bites.

Thanks for the posts.

Zombies are my biggest fear.

An irrational fear but fear nonetheless, I hope it stays irrational and doesn't manifest itself as a rational fear. I would prefer to not be around during a zombie apocalypse.

Although it would be a pretty good stress relief to go crazy on a bunch of the undead.

Oh, bloody zombies

For pete's sake !

If someone made a teen tv-series about pink spotted jellyfish, we'd be seeing believers in here before too many weeks had passed

Zombies ?

You're worried about ZOMBIES ?

The word is FULL of zombies, right here, right now


At least half the world's population is the living dead

It's just called "Cell". It's somewhat like the movie "The Crazies". I think he even dedicated it to George Romero. Not too bad for his later stuff.


And then there's:
Isaiah 26:19-20

19Thy dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead.

20Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.


I'd include my usual Harry Cooper spiel, but I've probably used it to much...

But the purpose for this thread is because I am a little confused about one of Zechariahs predictions. It says:


“This will be the plague the Lord strikes all people with who warred against Jerusalem: their flesh will rot while they stand on their feet, their eyes will rot in their sockets, and their tongues will rot in their mouths.” Book of Zechariah 14:12 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)



The meaning in this verse is metaphorical.
"Their flesh will rot while they stand on their feet" means they will no longer have any 'muscle' to dominate us. The criminally insane will loose their physical power over Human Beings .

"Their eyes will rot in their sockets". They will not see it coming when the Human Beings rise up against their oppressers. The Villians will see with their own eyes what they never thought could happen.

"Their tongues will rot in their mouths". Our oppressers will be speechless in their astonishment as those Human Beings who claim freedom from their oppressers do it by turning the very words and decrees of the Dominaters against them.

if you go on to read through you will see that nibiru passes pretty close on this coming pass and in doing so the earth's crust will expell excessive amounts of lava!

how do i get this b/c the lord is nibiru it was what helped shape our solar system and the species that bumped us into our current state as nature was taking a millenia to get us here came from...also the passing of nibiru is when it says and the lord will pass judgement...the planet will pass...the lava is when it says and the earth shall expel her blood..

isaiah 26:21-

actually christian lore goes as follows when "god" returns and the dead rise from there resting places its not talking about zombies its talking about the ones who have died and been buried or whatever are asleep and will not be awakened again until "god"s returns for final judgement those who go to heaven will leave with him those who go to hell stay on earth with the devil

Are we talking, slow stupid not scary, fun to kill zombies? Or the crazy roided out super fast zombies who would still be fun to kill but a bit more tricky?

Either way, I am game.

Either way, always check the back seat. And don't forget the double-tap.
