Those stories and games where zombies try to kill you are stupid.

1. A zombie is a rotting corpse, thus it does not have the brain functions to walk, move, let alone try to kill someone.

2. Because it is a rotting corpse, if it tries to walk, it would fall apart.

Well, if the causes for why they are happening in the Zombie Stories are true, then technically it is possible.

There are mushmind's all over DDO
"The bud disappears when the blossom breaks through, and we might say that the former is refuted by the latter; in the same way when the fruit comes, the blossom may be explained to be a false form of the plant's existence, for the fruit appears as its true nature in place of the blossom. These stages are not merely differentiated; they supplant one another as being incompatible with one another." G. W. F. HEGEL

I'm not sure what this has to do with philosophy. And here I was, hoping for an intellectual discussion about qualia!

of course they do they are supernatural. Now we all understand it.

Each movie defines zombies differently- a zombie is not necessarily "dead", just decomposing, and no longer rational. It simply follows base primitive instincts like eating.

Leprosy exists, as do flesh-eating microbes, so a living person can be decomposing and look like a zombie.

Alzheimer's exists, as does 'roid rage, so people can lose their memories, and have a biochemistry that makes them violent.

So, add it all together- someone can be rotting away, have no rational thoughts, and be driven by violence and hunger.

Sounds like a zombie to me!
