Would we be able to survive a zombie apocalypse
Debate Rounds (3)
You would think that we have come long enough to be able to survive a zombie apocalypse, but if you're talking on a global scale, there would be almost no hope. If you think about it, if almost 50% of the world population was somehow turned into zombies, we would be in big trouble. This 50% may include military soldiers that would have the job of protecting. On top of that, there would be too many zombies too. Even though it sounds like an even fight, zombies normally cluster into large groups. This has been shown on many zombie movie and TV shows, such as The Walking Dead. It is shown how deadly zombies can be through this "mob warfare".
I do agree with your point, but I guess I just misinterpretted your argument. You state that there is a small chance of the virus even becoming a real thing threat. I'm arguing that the zombie apocalypse would doom us all. Normally, the case with any "zombie virus" is that if you are bit, you become a zombie. This is a MAJOR advantage for all of the zombies. This way, there can be additions to the opposing side. This creates a very tough war between the two sides, ultimately making the zombies a larger force therefore having them win the war.
I see where you are coming from, but if you were right in that we would be able to surivive this, the TV show The Walking Dead would've been finished along time ago. What also makes a zombie apocolypse deadly is the anarchy it creates among humans across the world. No matter what you do, it's almost impossible to save every possible person and to stop this situation becuase there are always going to be those who either cannot keep up or just plainly may deny authority. It is just in human nature to do this at times. With these rebellions, there would be chaos among the healthy humans stil left in the world, creating a sort of "civil war" among them. This would only count as an advantage to the zombies, because it would distract a large part of military attempting to control the "civil war". To go into more detail, there would be battles for food, land, shelter, etc., among all suriviors trying to live by themselves (referring to The Walking Dead charactes). In conclusion, there would only be more battles among surivivors, making military forces focus more attention on to them, therefore making the military weaker and more susceptible to defeat from a zombie apocolypse.
Thank you for debating with me too, you proved a very worthy opponent. Now I guess we wait for the votes...
