Virus[edit]

Actually Romero's films (the master and king of all zombie films) never put forward a definite explanation for the plague of walking dead. One was that Hell might've been full. In interviews he's said he specifically didn't put in a cause, it's up to the viewer to imagine, or just not know.

The "zombies" in 28 Days Later were caused by a virus, but weren't actually zombies. They were living people, who stayed dead when killed.

Obviously the problem with a virus theory, is that viruses depend on living cells to reproduce, or to have any effect at all, by themselves they're inert, they don't move or live. The theory about Hell makes more sense scientifically. 188.29.165.219 (talk) 12:03, 29 October 2015 (UTC)

Zombies are already irrelevant in a romero movie due to the focus being dat social commentary. What caused them is irrelevant because they're here, they're winning and they showcase various aspects of humanity through being around. --"Paravant" Talk & Contribs 14:00, 29 October 2015 (UTC)
The only two things I could think of for an actual ZA would be a bacterium or parasitic organism. They could keep some of the brain cells alive and keep the rest of the body dead; I recommend the book series Zombie Apocalypse!; it is really good and written with an original style, they use a similar method as I mentioned.--Rationalzombie94 (talk) 18:26, 2 January 2016 (UTC)

Make use of Vultures and 'maggots and other creatures of that kind' 82.44.143.26 (talk) 17:39, 29 October 2015 (UTC)

What if the disease pathogen could transverse species?--Rationalzombie94 (talk) 18:33, 2 January 2016 (UTC)

Zombie epidemic?[edit]

There are a lot of videos and articles out there saying that a zombie apocalypse is possible. I am not talking about those who use fictional scenarios for real life threats (such as de CDC), i am talking about an actual zombie apocalypse. Of course that thinking that a walking dead like scenario is possible is just bullshit, but what do you think?— Unsigned, by: Ep0605 / talk / contribs

An actual zombie apocalypse? Dead bodies don't work that way. Or at all, really. They need food and oxygen and a functioning circulatory system--Hastur! (talk) 06:02, 9 September 2020 (UTC)
