With science advancing by leaps and bounds..I guess we can say never say never.

May be time to stock up on Beer and Twinkies.

In addition, a virus and some bacteria can easily be spread infecting other people.

Meddling scientists...will be our down fall...or at least those who meddle in cirtain bio cocktails...as above link will explain...

If this ever gets out...and I'm certain it will...than it very well could be like the movie 'Resident Evil'....

It's one thing to talk about creating a deadly pandemic flu virus. That's a bit different than turning people into zombies (the walking dead), such as in the Resident Evil series.

But you yourself just explained how it could happen....

As you explained...strains are always mutating...and or if combined with rabies or some other type virus...you just never know...

Rabies + Flu = ?

The combinations are endless...such as peoples motivations for
wanting to unleash such terror...



I speak so elequantly at times...like a movie character or something...

Also called motion picture industry with an emphasis on zombie movies.

Another name for Zombies is Occupy Wall Streeter:



Now don't they look a little like zombies walking around?

I already gave an explanation earlier regarding flu virus. It's usually passed from person to person, directly or indirectly. Even the H1N1 virus for the most part was passed from person to person, although incidents certainly did occur from exposure to contanimated birds. Rabies can be transmitted from the bite of an infected animal.

It's still not the same thing as a zombie. Are you saying that it's possible a person can be stone cold dead, then somehow rise from the dead days, weeks or years later to stumble around hungrily looking to gnaw on someone's brains, flesh, and internal organs?

I'm not saying it can't be imagined. I'd say there are plenty of other deadly diseases to contend with. I do agree about the lab flu virus though. It could be pretty nasty if a mishap ever occured.

No, I'm refering more to the 'infected' class of zombie...

The '28 days later' type of zombie or Will Smiths 'I am legend' type of infected...

In the movie 'Iam legend' remember the movie starts off with woman scientist claiming they had cured cancer?

Then the scene jumps 3 years into the future....and the landscape is desolate...

Did you read the link I posted above?

If not...please read it...

Cause this conversation will make more sense if you do...
About that new super strain of the flu...the deadliest ever known...

I posted the link for a reason....

Here, I'll repost it for you...

Read the link? Yes, watched the vid, if that's what you mean. It's a deadly flu virus that was purposely created. I agree, it's pretty stupid. Deadly? Absolutely! Not sure what the reason was. Pretty reckless, imo. I'd say their actions should be taken to court. In any case, nothing in the vid said anything about it causing people to become zombies. Might feel like a zombie just before dying though. That is the subject of this thread, isn't it?

No, I haven''t seen "28 days Later" or "I Am Legend",so I'm at a disadvantage there. Still, I'm not sure I'd stake my life in paranoia because of a Hollywood movie though. They're fictional, aren't they?

Oh my gosh...what am i going to do with you??

You mean you havn't seen '28 days later'?
And heard about the 'Rage' virus??....

Ok, let me find a clip for you...


28 Days Later - Opening Scene - YouTube

This is why it's not good for animal rights groups to just go in and release animals in bio labs, cause they have no idea what those animals have been injected with...

This scenerio could very well happen....
warning...opening scenes kind of graphic....
