Limited thoughts.


I haven’t posted anything in a while, because exams have been taking up most of my time. So anyway, I was walking to school one morning, and these Jehovah Witnesses stopped me and handed me this little booklet and suggested I read it. Of course, the title of it captivated me- Doomsday: Fact, Fiction and Fantasy- so I decided to read a bit. It was the Awake! September 2012 edition, and as I read I came across a line that said: “There seems to be no end to the forces ready to pounce upon and lay waste to humanity-killer robots, monsters of all sorts, aliens, zombies, ghosts, dragons, apes, birds, mutant rats and giant wasps.” (The Fascination With Doomsday, Awake! September 2012) They said that people would not take these stories seriously, but I believe we know it is the contrary. In fact, people wouldn’t hype over it so much if there wasn’t even a glimmer of belief present, maybe a bit of fear. For me, it was the word “zombies” that caught my eye. Being a topic that I am very sensitive to, I decided to look into it a bit more. They also stated “First, they are based on the speculation of men, and humans have a far-from-perfect record when it comes to guessing the future.” (Doomsday May Not Be What You Think, Awake! September 2012) Now I should state that we are not trying to predict anything when making our theories about zombies. We are, however, looking at the possibility of something of that nature occuring at some arbritrary point, and brainstorming every possible way in which that would happen. We aren’t saying yes, the world will definitely end by the hands of zombies, but we are saying that it is very real that something of that nature and magnitude would have the ability to wipe out the human race (and maybe a couple other species as well). There was one line that I agreed with, which stated “Concerning that day and hour (when the world will end) nobody knows, neither the angels of the heavens nor the Son, but only the Father.”-Matthew 24:36 So we see that no one can predict it. But that does not mean that they should label everyone else’s theories as to the way in which it would happen as being wrong. I didn’t say that the Undead Hypothesis was right at all. But you know, they’re religion.
I am a Christian, however, so I do agree with everything the Bible has to say about this matter. Just saying.
But the zombies can come, and as I always say, non-believers are the first to die.

P.S.: There was a line that said “The upright are the ones that will reside in the earth, and the blameless are the ones that will be left over in it. As regards the wicked, they will be cut off from the very earth; and as for the treacherous, they will be torn away from it.”-Proverbs 2:5, 6. Think about that for a moment. Would that, in your opinion, determine who succumbs to the zombie Apocalypse? And what defines uprightness and blamelessness? I should be studying right now…


Zombies as another species…


This thought came to me while I was cleaning my closet. Now the obvious thing is that the entire body is controlled by action of the brain/central nervous system. What people may think is that zombies are brain-dead, as in, their brain is no longer functional, so they are practically walking dead people. That may not be the case, because the only way the body can even work is by command of the brain. This means that the brain of a zombie isn’t dead, it is simply working differently. Now in theory, zombies aren’t as smart as normal people, they act mainly by instinct (without thinking at all), and they also have no sense of coordination or specific speech. This would mean that the part of the brain that controls voluntary action is dysfunctional, and the parts that control thought, speech and other non-instinctive factors are completely denatured. This decreases the capacity of the brain being used from the normal human brain capacity.

Basically, the most functional areas of the zombie brain would be the areas that control the five senses: sight, smell, touch, hearing and most importantly, taste. And because they would run only on instinct, they can be likened to animals. And if we consider them as animals, that would mean they are of a different species to humans completely. Of course, no real assumptions can be made, because zombies can be the new species that would come to replace the human race, being an evolved and superior species.

Well, we’ll find out someday. I’ve got to study the function of nucleic acids right now.
