The resolution is 'Zombies can be real'.

My position is that Zombies can occur, either naturally or man-made in some fashion. I'll seek to prove this during the debate.I will present my case in round 2 but for now I'll like to offer up a definition of Zombie to keep things clear.

1. Zombie- A reanimated corpse. Can be any living thing that was once alive but died and reanimates itself.


I accept.

Thanks for accepting and I apologize for taking so long to post.

I think that Zombies can be real, both man-made and natural, because of 2 main reasons.

1.) Zombie-Ant Fungus

The Zombie-Ant Fungus (Ophiocordyceps unilateralis) is pretty well known. the fungus actually belongs to sort of a family of fungi that each specializes in one insect d infects it, taking over its mind and effectively controlling its body after its dead to get the best chance of releasing its spores in a good place. There has been examples of these types of fungus in various insects so far. Is it really that hard to imagine a fungus of this family specializing in humans? It would have a larger inhabitant, giving it more room to release spores and controlling a human would also offer it a broader range of travel to infect more places.

2.) Rabies

The effect of rabies is well-documented and well known but I will explain it anyways. Some symptoms are foaming at the mouth, paralysis, and confusion. Put all of these together it closely resembles medias look at a zombie. I believe that if for some reason a Rabies outbreak in humans happened it would be a Zombie outbreak.
