I was wondering, is there anyone out there that believes that their will be a real zombie apocalypse? I hear many jokes about it, but I was wondering if anyone on TeenInk truly believes in it and why?

As far as "coming back from the dead" type Zombie... No... I dont think that will happen. HOWEVER! Allow me to shed light on this with actual science fact!
 
Ever played Black Ops (the first one) and changed it to zombie mode? Ever notice the numbers on the moniter? USE CALCULATOR HUMOR!!! :D it spells EBOLA.
 
Ebola is an incurable disease transfered via bites, yes, bites. It stems origionally from an infected monkey or ape and it is transfered to humans via bite or accidental exposure. The eyes turn bright yellow, your body starts to lose its flesh as the virus slowly eats your skin, eventually things inside you start to fail but you dont die yet. Your tongue stops working along with the rest of your insides you dont need to live (mumbling and groaning noises) and oddly enough the patients are restless though their skin is falling off and you can see muscle and bone. However, your death comes verrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry slowly by the cooking of your brain by itself (huge fever).
 
BUT FEAR NOT! Ebola is not at all common in 1st world countries. It is most common in Africa, as are most things. Just thought I would shed some light on the zombie thing! Have a good day! :D

Bugs and other simpler organisms have parasites that take over their body and force the host to bite others of its own kind to spread the parasite's eggs. Maybe a similar parasite that affects humans will evolve. That Ebola thing is interesting. Isn't that a parasite? What an awful way to go, I would rather get mauled by a bear. Or a zombie.

That seems interesting about Ebola. So I guess you could become a "zombie" in a way if you contracted Ebola.

For more information (though none of the sites do the virus justice, from my own extensive research) go to google and look up Ebola Virus... and WARNING! If you go to images, they are NOT for the weak! some are graphic

Okay, sis, you used the wrong 'there'. Might be a typo though. ;)

Zombies...well, no, I don't think so. But there's this kid in my art class who sincerely believes that there will be a zombie apocalypse, and he says that he keeps a machete under his bed so he'll be ready.

that kid is insane... While I firmly believe we just live in a paranoid world, it is always good to know how to find necessities should the need arise! Learn your stuff!

Wow, the Ebola virus is interesting (and disturbing). I've read the book Zombies Versus Unicorns (an anthology with zombie and unicorn stories to decide which ones are better) and there were all SORTS of different types of zombies in it. I prefer the idea of infected people becoming zombies through things like Ebola because that makes more scientific sense. If we're talking living dead zombies, I definitely don't believe that. But I see no reason that viruses like Ebola will ever cause an apocalypse. We've lasted for so long with it existing on earth without a problem so far.

Other evidence: check out ASAPscience's video called Zombie Apocalypse Science to learn about another theory.
