Zombie Apocalypse !! - Can someone please explain the fascination with this?
Of all the disaster preparedness things I've read about... this ZOMBIE thing keeps coming up. WHY?
The whole "undead" thing seems fun for a movie, but silly for activities such as this.

[link to www.huffingtonpost.com]

I'm teachable... so I'm asking a legitimate question:
What is the fascination with this idea?
Do rational people really believe it is possible for humans to become "undead" ???

Re: Zombie Apocalypse !! - Can someone please explain the fascination with this?
I think the prepping for Zombies goes back to the idea of the masses being SHEEP. The dead (in thought and action) will rise (fight) for food (any thing) after shtf (or before). Also I think the bible helped with the whole idea of Resurrection of the dead, and Dry bones in the valley...so "it's biblical".

Interesting thought you have. I can see this idea getting around.
But I don't thing the Biblical account talks of zombie like behavior. It's more like a "I'm out-of-here to heaven" kinda motive.

Re: Zombie Apocalypse !! - Can someone please explain the fascination with this?
My thoughts are...everyone realizes there's a lot of bad out there and nothing could be worse than a planet full of zombies with the goal of nothing else but to eat you.

The majority of people have probably thought...you know, if all the stories you read and rumors you hear were to ever come true, I'd fight if I had to. But no one truly wants to ever fight another or forced to fight their neighbor...or even try to imagine a true, apocalyptic world.

Zombies are a pretty safe outlet for these worries. I mean, you don't have to try to figure out if a zombie is good or bad, friend or foe. They are all bad. Plus, they're ugly. Mostly, they represent the bad in bad humans, but are not human themselves. There is no moral conflict when choosing to fight a zombie.

Being a member of this group, you obviously realize that a lot of folks have a lot of questions about a lot of things. I'm pretty sure though that everyone would agree...zombies are bad. There is a lot of comfort in certainty.

FYI, I am only attempting to give you one perspective in regards to your question. I am not a "zombie-ist" :)

Big brother is all set to turn on the microwaves to certain frequencies. We've already been infected with the enzymes. Those little buggers will lay dormant for 100 years. The microwaves will activate the enzyme and we'll become zombie like. Look it up on the web. It's real. Our SWAT teams use microwaves for crowd control now. They've been using and modifying microwaves for 4 decades.
The Nazis were working on this under Hitler and the US gov got their scientists to turn. Just like we got the nukes.

It's out there laying dormant until the right frequency is turned on ... then whole communities will become so doped up they will become zombie like. They can even make you hear voices. That's why the military, federal police and DHS are playing the Zombie War games. Because they're prepping.

End of story. zombies

I have seen the boogie man change a lot in my life time.
When I was young it was dracula, fankenstien, and the wolfman.

Its the sign of the times. Technology and Science has changed our fears from something supernatural to something that is now natural.

If you say your preparing just in case of a natural disaster or tyrannical government, than your just crazy. However, if you say you are preparing for zombies, everyone is o.k. with it. I decided to go with the zombie excuse.

I think it's the desire to kill evil things without societal repercussions. We all have to deal with evil things, namely our coworkers and family members. But if they turned to zombies, it wouldn't be morally or legally wrong to chop their heads off.

Just a thought.

Rumor has it...the bath salts zombie case...was not as it appears....Bath salts was a cover story..

The real story is an invented virus similar to rabies....turns humans brains into mush...making them act crazy...

The virus somehow was "accidentally" released or escaped...

Feds trying to keep a lid on it...phoney story about bath salts..

so real zombies are on the horizon once they release it..

Just another method of desensitizing....not much of a jump from walking dead to tattered, desperate, starving fellow man. You don't have to really believe it...just be open to the act of taking them out....makes it easier to live with yourself. All part of the plan.

Re: Zombie Apocalypse !! - Can someone please explain the fascination with this?
I love zombie stories. Frankenstein was a type of zombie, and they are an expression of our fear of technology getting out of control.
I also enjoy the metaphor of the mindless, all consuming dead zombie for current consumerism.
It plays to a view of the parasitic nature of humans. And at the same time our fear of not being the top dog on the food chain.
I think that's my worst fear, of being eaten alive.

The elites are trying to warn people to prepare for collapse, but they can't just come out and say the world is in real bad shape and everyone should be preparing so they use zombies to "plant the seed".

Or maybe...

Watch Prometheus, think carefully about it. Then consider the DHS exercises for a UFO Crash/Zombie outbreak...That should be enough to figure it out. Oh, the film Pontypool as well. It has to do with mass possession by an evil entity known as CHORONZON. I guess you could say Zombie films are just a joke on us from those who saw it coming.
