A Zombie Apocalypse Is completely Possible
Debate Rounds (3)
I do honestly believe that it is fully possible whether it be due to a fungus (cordysepts) or, a virus.
http://www.bbc.co.uk... There are over 400 different types of cordyscepts. Each type of cordycepts infects a different spices. Which could possibly mean that according to the theory of Evolution it could infect evolve to infect humans. Mass cannibalism has never been recorded and only small groups or singular people would commit cannibalism and cannibalism is preformed by people today. According to nbcnews.com(1) it is rare but still preformed today also pirons is NOT the only thing that makes people perform cannibalism. There is many different causes to cannibalism and it has also been preformed in Western civilization.
Since I do believe the term "zombie" has been modified from the last round I'm going throw in this:
Science has proved there to be different diseases that cause zombie like symptoms such as and not limited to Brain Parasites, Nerotoxins, Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, Neurogenesis (reanimation) and, Nanobots. Now the last two may sound extremely fictional but they are plausible. There is a lab that is dedicated to research on Neurogenesis is happening and just realty Scientists have already created a nano-cyborg, by fusing a tiny silicone chip to a virus. The first thing they found out is these cyborgs can still operate for up to a month after the death of the host. Notice how nano scientists went right for zombification, even at this early stage. (2)

Reasons for voting decision: Pro's second and third round arguments were good, but the first one had no relevance, therefore giving conduct to Con. Con did not use sources while pro did. In round three Con made a conseccion that the cordycepts could exist. The reason for More convincing arguments: The resolution asks if a zombie apocalypse is possible, and Pro answers that. Con states that it would not happen for thousands of years, but that doesn't refute Pro's arguments. Overall, I expected more from this debate.
