Zombies are real- in the bible and in science.
Zombies have been in the news and in hubpages, so when reading about Zombies it became very fascinating to find that science and even the bible wrote that creatures who were exactly like zombies were mentioned.
The bible wrote in 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.
This is amazing, because there have been recent stories of people who have been called Zombies, not only in the United States, but also in China, where someone has been attacked by anther person, who has had tried to eat their face off. This is hard to understand, but it is true.
What is even , at least to me, is that there are scientific reasons that a person could become a Zombie.
The first is if a parasite is able to enter a person's brain. One of these parasites is named Toxoplasmosagondij. This little bug infects rats, but can only breed inside a cat. A lot of people have cats. So, when a person changes the cat's kitty litter box, then that person can be infected.
Another scientific reason a person could be a Zombie is a disease called Mad Cow Disease. There is a virus that has been named Cuetzfeldt-Jakob disease and that is when humans eat the meat that has been infected by cows. This causes hallucinations, changes in walking, lack of coordination ,much more.
This disease is very rare in humans and the afflicted are not known to chase humans...yet
Neurogenesis is a way to keep a person alive even after the the person has died. The entire brain has died except for the stem of the brain. Scientists have been able to re-grow part of the brain tissue so that a person, who has been brain dead can "wake up" and walk around again. Although this person has no memory of who she/he was. This is just an experiment, it has not actually been done yet.
There is much more research being going on in labs at this time, on the brain. On how the brain works, what the brain can do and what the brain can do and what the brain cannot do.
But, do not be alarmed. They are only doing research, at least for now.
