Every where there are signs of a coming zombie appocolaps. When do you think we will need to start blowing zombie's heads off? I thik it will be in the next 50 years if not sooner. What do you think??

This should be an "interesting" "debate".

1st some definitions:

Zombie:
"
Zombies are fictional undead creatures regularly encountered in horror and fantasy themed works. They are typically depicted as mindless, reanimated corpses with a hunger for human flesh, and particularly for human brains in some depictions. Although they share their name and some superficial similarities with the zombie from Haitian Vodun, their links to such folklore are unclear. Many consider George A. Romero's seminal film The Night of the Living Dead to be the progenitor of these creatures
.[1][2]" (1)


Apocalypse:
"Any universal or widespread destruction or disaster: the apocalypse of nuclear war." (2)

zombie apocalypse:
"Intimately tied to the conception of the modern zombie is the "zombie apocalypse"; the breakdown of society as a result of an initial zombie outbreak which spreads. This archetype has emerged as a prolific subgenre of apocalyptic fiction and been portrayed in many zombie-related media post-Night.[26] In a zombie apocalypse, a widespread (usually global) rise of zombies hostile to human life engages in a general assault on civilization. Victims of zombies may become zombies themselves. This causes the outbreak to become an exponentially growing crisis: the spreading "zombie plague/virus" swamps normal military and law enforcement organizations, leading to the panicked collapse of civilian society until only isolated pockets of survivors remain, scavenging for food and supplies in a world reduced to a pre-industrial hostile wilderness." (3)

I think that there is little/no evidence for the existence of zombies.
& there is even less evidence (if that's possible) that there will be a zombie apocalypse within the next 50 years.


My opponent will have the BOP to show that there will be a zombie apocalypse within the next 50 years.

Good luck.
