    Could rabies mutate and become similar to the 'rage' disease as seen in that film? Definitely interested in answers from doctors or those who specialize/study epidemics.

    Not sure if it could happen with rabies but it wouldn't be outside the realm of possibility for some kind of "zombifying" infection to originate from a meteor shower, effectively turning people into zombies.  For a great example of how a skeptical person with a scientific mind was fooled into believing this really happened see "Apocalypse" by Derren Brown!
