Seperating Fact from Fiction: “The Walking Dead” a deadly reality? 2011/11/03

Like a lot of people I know, I’ve been enthralled in the undead fantasy world that is AMC’s “The Walking Dead”. At first I was a skeptic
of watching another “zombie flick” style show, but this is so much better than that. The show raised questions to me as to whether
or not the possibility of an actual occurrence of the recently deceased becoming reanimated were at all possible, and if it was in the
Bible. A little internet surfing and some reading of Scriptures gave for some pretty interesting answers. Answers you may dismiss
as just more fiction.

The whole premise of “The Walking Dead” is basically MANKIND in a fight for survival, against an unknown event which brought the dead
back to life with only the most basic of primal needs apparent, the need to feed. We’ve seen it before in countless flicks courtesy of
George Romero and others, but The Dead take a refreshing approach to the idea and really has me asking: Could this really happen?!
The only reason I’m even entertaining the idea of any form of resurrection is because of Bible scriptures I remember learning about
quite some time ago:

Zechariah 14:12
And the LORD will send a plague on all the nations that fought against Jerusalem. Their people will become like walking corpses, their
 flesh rotting away. Their eyes will rot in their sockets, and their tongues will rot in their mouths.

Zechariah 14:13
On that day they will be terrified, stricken by the LORD with great panic. They will fight their neighbors hand to hand.

I guess this is why the US insists on being Israel’s big brother, cause the government knows of the impending Zombie attack! Foolishness
aside, and taking into account that this is the Old Testament and not only is some of the material dated and confusing, some teachings
may have been taken out of context in the years of translation since the original scriptures were written, so lets fast forward, to the future in the Bible:

Revelation 11:6
These men have power to shut up the sky so that it will not rain during the time they are prophesying; and they have power to turn the waters into blood
and to strike the earth with every kind of plague as often as they want.

Revelation 11:8
Their bodies will lie in the street of the great city, which is figuratively called Sodom and Egypt, where also their Lord was crucified.

Revelation 11:11
But after the three and a half days a breath of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet, and terror struck those who saw them.

This prophecy is believed to be in direct connection with one of the Old Testament found in Ezekiel:

Ezekiel 37:10
So I prophesied as he commanded me, and breath entered them; they came to life and stood up on their feet–a vast army.

All jokes aside, every reference I seem to find about the living dead has direct correlation with judgement and conflict, which totally
fits the M.O. of “The Walking Dead”. End of the world scenarios abound in film today, with the impending 2012 date fast approaching and
no one really knowing what happens after that. Scientists believe that fire destroyed to world once, taking out the dinosaurs and from the ashes,
MANKIND arose like the phoenix. Then Bible scripture tells us (along with a lot of other world religions that agree that the events of Noah
and the Ark really did occur, ON TOP of the Ark being FOUND right where the Bible said it was in the icy mountain tops of Mt. Ararat) God flooded
the world with water to cleanse it a second time. What does that leave? Okay, it leaves a lot of options, I know, but zombie attack is definitely
on the table here.

But let’s say you’re an atheist, or of another religion. You’re not buying with the Bible says, so popular website Cracked.com
came up with 5 Scientific Reasons zombification could happen, check them out here:

Michael Bridges posts in his blog about zombification being outlawed in the country of Haiti :http://society.ezinemark.com/have-there-ever-been-real-zombies-184f95de5ba.html.
A cue he could have gotten from Wes Craven’s “A Serpent and the Rainbow” alleging to be based off of actual zombifying events in Haiti: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0096071/.

Whether any of this is true or not, all the events state the same thing, its gonna happen fast, no one’s gonna know it until its too late, and a clean shot to the brain or
decapitation is the only way to stop a zombie.

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m not one to take chances, so I’ll be heading to my local Bass Pro shop and selecting a few firearms in the near future.

Blog again soon.
