Re: Zombie "Virus" Theorem

WARNING: BIOLOGY CONTENT AHEAD Ok first off you are right about one thing, this pathogen cannot be natural-occurring so we have to make our own if we want to. Firstly you will have to sequence Toxoplasma gondii g...

Re: A biology student's view on zombies

I have to agree with this thought process, that it's going to be a 'living' creature that acts as a zombie. Too many times, zombies are presented as 'dead' that have arisen to walk the planet. Anything that can alter the mind in such a way that induces paranoia, hallucinations, or psychotic behavio...

Re: A biology student's view on zombies

For a "layman" zombie "cause", I like a fungus… They can exist in "small" batches, or cover square miles. They can digest or infest whatever they encounter, but can also use their digestion to "aid" other organisms with which they establish a symbiosis. As a "goo", they can enter an organism thru a...
