Surviving a Zombie Apocalypse – The Debate Continues…

There are questions that have haunted mankind for centuries including:

Existence – Why are we here?
Death – Is there an afterlife?
After Death – Can mankind survive a zombie apocalypse?

Either of these questions have been debated heatedly over the years.  Either of these debates can lead to violence depending on the alcohol consumption.

Today, I’m going to address the zombie apocalypse.  Anyone who has seen Dawn of the Dead, Return of the Living Dead, The Walking Dead, Z Nation, and thousands of other zombie related movies or television shows, knows that surviving a zombie apocalypse is nearly impossible.  The survivors can flourish for several years, but eventually something dramatic happens that causes the zombies to break through barriers and kill everyone who we think is safe.

Even if we can survive living with fellow humans, including crazy people like Negan, the threat of becoming a midnight snack for a hungry zombie is constant.  Rick and his compadres move from one location to another, because even when they think it’s safe a horde of zombies manage to break through.  A large group always diminishes quickly.  I can’t find too many examples out there that proves this statement otherwise.

Is there a safe heaven?  Can the outbreak be contained?  Can the zombie virus be completely wiped out?

Only time can tell …
