I have read reports of supposedly real zombies. I don't really believe it to be honest.
Where does the idea of zombies originate from?
Does anyone believe in them?

are we talking "drugged victims of Hatian witch doctors"?

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

And from the evil of darkness when it settles And from the evil of the blowers in knots
And from the evil of an envier when he envies"

It comes from legends and tales dating back as far as Egypt.

The problem with discussing "real life" zombies is that the film/book fanatics think zombies have to be a dead person coming back to life as a zombie.

Where as a zombie is just a mindless animal that has no control over itself anymore. It does exist in many cases in nature. Even rabies is close to "zombieism". If scientists just mess with the wrong thing and change somehting and it gets out...  Or if a virus/disease mutates/evolves itself... Then zombies could be very real. However, people and military etc would probably sort it quicker than in films.

When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.

Very true. The rage virus in 28 Days Later is far more realistic scenario than say the walking dead. Or just look at the incident in Florida with the bath salts, where  a perfectly normal functional human being during a drug induced state (bath salts) ate another man's face and had to be put down in a hail of bullets by the police.

Have any of you heard about the new Russian drug Krokodil? I repeat do not subject yourself to any videos or pictures online of krokodil drug addicts if you are squeamish or possess an sensitive stomache or offended by images and videos of people's bodies rotting right down to the bone. Krokodil is the stuff nightmares are made of.

"I charge thee in the sight of God, who giveth life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed the good confession; that thou keep the commandment, without spot, without reproach, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: which in its own times he shall show, WHO IS THE BLESSED AND ONLY POTENTE, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS; who only hath immortality, dwelling in light unapproachable; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power eternal. Amen" (I Tim 6:13-16).

This i sure you know is caused by tetrodotoxin from the pufferfish,but now days most in mental hospitals act almost zombie like themselves.

"If it is not advantageous,do not move.If objectives can not be attained,do not employ the army.Unless endangered do not engage in warfare.The ruler cannot mobilize the army out of personal anger.The general can not engage in battle because of personal frustration.When it is advantageous,move;when not advantageous,stop.Anger can revert to happiness,annoyance can revert to joy,but a vanquished state cannot be revived,the dead cannot be brought back to life."

Well i don't beelive that was purely bath salts... Bath salts has been in the UK for over 10 years and nothing liek that has happened. I reckon it was linked to medical drugs  like some new anti depressent. Maybe mixed with bath salts. But the first case didn't have bath salts in his system. Somehting the media didn't really make clear.

You are spot on though, that is essentially a zombie. :tu:

Also I lvoe 28 days/weeks later because of how they are more realistic. I like walking dead, but it's nowhere near as scary becuase it just isn't as realistic. I like wlaking dead more becuase it shows the survival side better than a lot of the big zombie films out there. They hardly ever show the actual survival parts, like needing food, water and shelter.

Yeah I seen that. Horrific images, I have no clue why someone would do that.

Zombies originated in Haiti on sugar cane plantations. Plantation owners wanting cheap labour would go around town poisoning people using as mentionned the puffer fish toxin which would slow the heart rate down to a crawl and cause paralysis. Families would bury their family members who they thought were dead. At night the plantation owners would go dig up the graves and bring those poor people back to work once the toxin wore off, keeping them drugged constantly. On a few occasions either the plantation owners would forget to give them their daily dose or would simply pass away and those  "zombies" would come back to their senses often coming back to their villages to families that burried them years prior.  And voila!...zombies explained.

Well documented case.   http://en.wikipedia....irvius_Narcisse

The only problem being the guy didnt actually show to have consumed bath salts in the autopsy... That was simply fear mongering by the media to fuel the "War on Drugs".

Krokodil is terrible. Easily the worst and most damaging drug out there I have ever seen to one individual. It gets the name as it makes you rot from the inside out making your skin look rough like a crocodiles. It basically eats you away.

The most shocking picture I saw of that was someones foot or what was left attached to nothing with a gap of bone between other flesh higher up on their shin.

I don't believe in the traditional zombie (a dead person brought back to life as a walking corpse with a hunger for living brains and flesh) but as said above, some substances can radically change a person's behavior to be erratic. It is eerie what some of these drugs can do to a person. I can't imagine a full scale "drugged people out on the streets and normal people surviving in harsh conditions" thing going on, though.

When I was young, we had a pastor at our Baptist Church who was from French Guiana, in South America who told stories of going to a funeral and then sneaking back at night to see the local witch doctor dig up the person and lead them off like a slave, whipping them as they walked.
