Our Secret Zombie Life

The Walking Dead and Fear of the Walking Dead by AMC are two of the most popular shows on television today. George Romero has spun a whole industry of gaming on campuses, computers, gaming, and movies that never end the topic of Zombies.

Why do people watch the worst of “after humanity” in these games and movies? What attracts us to this genre and is there a significance that has occurred inside of our culture to explain why people are drawn to this reality of death? Are we going to see a Zombie Apocalypse, not just from popular views but from scientific evidence and technologies available to us today? Lastly, does the Bible have anything to say about Zombies and death that can give an idea of how we can respond to the Y and Z Generations?

This book gives detailed information as to the behind the scenes view for Christians who might consider watching zombie movies and think that they are just fun. We even describe Biblical life after death experiences and what they really mean.

Inspiration for the book

As a teenager, Dr. Scott had a significant sensitivity toward supernatural issues. He didn’t like scary or evil based movies. These memories brought about a deep foreboding that He could not shake. Two of the scariest movies he saw were The Shining, with Jack Nicholson as the lead and The Exorcist, with Linda Blair’s demon possessed head spinning 360 degrees! While watching The Shining, he sat with his hand on the Bible for the last hour of the flick, so he would not bolt from the couch. Too many times he found himself viewing horror shows and really hating what he was seeing. He unfortunately watched each with fascination and fear.

Before his Senior Prom in Parker, Colorado in 1984, he came down the stairs from a video party where his friends sat watching Young Frankenstein and quoting every line within it. He made a phone call to ask a cute girl named Debbie to the Prom.

“Man, Scott, why didn’t you call a little bit ago?” she exasperatedly exclaimed. “Mitch just asked me and I said ‘Yes!’ I can tell him ‘No’ on Monday.” We both realized that it was a bad idea to break the fragile ego of Mitch, one of my best friends. Dr. Scott ended up going to the Prom with a sophomore who he wasn’t really interested in at the time. He joined 4 other couples and went to the Prom.

That whole night at the Prom, he looked in Debbie’s direction, and she in his, wishing he had phoned her an hour earlier that one night. He ended up at 3:00 A.M. at Mitch’s house alone while his friends took the girls home. He began watching the horrid VHS flick, Dawn of the Dead. This 1978 film was one of George Romero’s regenerations of his film series he spun for many years after his original. Somehow, this was the first time Dr. Scott had seen the Zombie genre in person and he was not impressed. But God had other plans for him later in life related to Zombies. This book is the research within that genre that started on that fateful night of his Prom.

In 1810 the word Zombi was adopted into the Oxford English dictionary (2) brought back by Robert Southey in his book The History of Brazil to explain the Haitian Voodoo Priests position within the culture. It is interesting to note that Southey also wrote a children’s tale, The Three Little Bears introducing the world to Goldilocks. Southey believed the word Zombi meant devil, but it was really an explanation of a utopian society who elected a priest or strong spiritual force who was called the Zombi,. We will revisit that term later on in this book in relation to Revelation 9:4-6.

These Haitian priests desired to enslave the population of uneducated agrarian workers with a neurotoxin called Tetrodotoxin (3). If the doses were just a fraction too high, the innocent would die without the ability to be resurrected into slavery; too low of a dose would have no effect whatsoever.

The real effects of Tetrodotoxin brought the unfortunate victims to paralysis which would remain for several days; with the person sometimes being conscious during this terrible period. The Voodoo Priest blew the powder upon the unsuspecting person’s skin after creating surface breaks. Once the neurotoxin entered the bloodstream, the effect of simulated death was convincing enough to the family to allow the Voodoo priest to bury the person (3). This master

would then bring the person out of the grave and after some physical recovery, convince the person that his life and soul were forfeited to the will of the priest. This victim would then work the land or tend to the priest’s needs for the rest of his natural life. Other outside witnesses in Haiti reported that there were no plantations with zombies working their fields (3). It was suspected that the drug brought about a deep myth that was promulgated by the ruling powers to control the uneducated to continue to live in servitude to a population that used suspicion to drive their truths into a personal reality of the loss of one’s Soul.
