Reading all this rubbish about the current 'zombie' incidents is starting to get on my tits.
This rhetoric I see all the time about 'deny ignorance!' and 'wake up sheeple!' is usually propagated by the foolish and the gullible. Add to that
such gems as 'worrying times people!" and "this is not normal!"
I love ATS. I love the members on here who are intelligent, witty, informative, well read, and open minded, these folk are people we can all learn
something from. Unfortunately they are a rarity these days. It seems that the majority of members would rather spout opinionated, fear-based,
hysterical, and sensational bull****, showing to the world that they are ignorant of science, history, biology and pretty much everything that
involves them using their brains.
Zombies are pure fiction. When I say this I mean the zombies we see in popular culture, the brain/flesh eating undead. (I'm well aware of the zombie
culture originating from the West Indies, this is quite different from our modern conception of what a zombie is).
Mostly, our modern zombie has his putrid roots in post WWII cold war mania, and the old B-movies from this time. The fear element relating to zombies
originally stems from the idea of societal collapse aka nuclear holocaust. As time went on this popular theme developed into the modern concept of a
zombie melt down where we are surrounded by animated flesh eating cadavers, a relentless horde, a claustrophobic nightmare of no escape. This kind of
thing will never happen. Yes there are some downright deranged people out there, doing some nasty things to other people, but show me a time when
there was never any mad stuff going on? Are we living in 'crazy times'? If you believe that we are then you're probably not well versed in history,
infact you probably don't know s*** about history.
When I see threads on ATS relating to a 'zombie outbreak' etc I can't help thinking that the real outbreak is happening with some ATS members, I
call em 'conspiracy zombies'.
