Could A Zombie Apocalypse Actually Happen

Could a zombie apocalypse actually happen?  Suprisingly enough the answer is yes and here are some of the reasons why.

  • Natural or genetically engineered viruses could work its way through human populations resulting in zombie like behaviors.  Spread in the same way as the common cold; exposure and then pandemic would almost be guaranteed.
  • A government experiment gone wrong or exposure to certain chemicals from those experiments could produce zombie like effects.  These could be used to wipe out targeted populations in an effort to increase or enforce governmental policies and controls.
  • DNA and gene manipulation could produce cross contamination and transferable infections leading to the rise of the zombie nation.  Part of this process could involve a desire and craving for human flesh on those subjected to these tests.
  • The introduction of neurotoxins which could render a body in a death like state until the toxin wears off.  At that time the person would likely have suffered some brain damage and would be easily controllable through the power of suggestion.
  • Neurogenesis where scientists use laboratory/medical methods to attempt to regow parts of dead human brains.  If successful this could guarantee the rise of a zombie army through transplant and other nefarious brain surgery techniques.

You can see 5 of my post apocalyptic fiction books, 2 of my zombie fiction books and 1 of my horror fiction books on the left side of my blog page.  Go ahead; take a chance and purchase one or more over at  They are really quite interesting if I do say so myself 🙂

    As more and more speculations are made, this list seems to become more mainstream and realistic. We have bacteria that is causing flesh deterioration and the new strand of heroin that is called the “zombie drug” because it breaks down the flesh of the users from the inside. I wonder what other things are on the horizon.
