With all the zombie survival threads floating around lately I thought it would be interesting to look into the possibility of zombies actually existing and see what I could come up with. This thread is for discussing the possibility of zombies existing in some form due to a virus or chemical imbalance, injection, or whatever. It is not for discussing Hollywood and Videogame zombies, which are obviously fake. I Haiti it is believed that certain Voodoo witch doctors have been responsible for turning people into "zombies" using toxins/chemicals/etc combined with each other or by "removing the persons soul out of their body". The theory/rumors go on to describe how the "victims" (although in some cases volunteers) will begin to exhibit zombie-like traits and eventually die. It is believed that they have sacrificed their souls to the devil, and they are then left with soulless bodies without expression/emotion, and basically walk around and scare people. They would be unable to think for themselves beyond basic animal instincts. I have no clue about the legitimacy of the information on these sites or the research that went into them but it makes for an interesting discussion nonetheless.

If so, do you think it has a medical explanation or a spiritual/demonic explanation or both? Thoughts?
