A recent article in LiveScience Magazine points out that mass extinctions of species throughout history have served as global reset buttons, allowing the earth to refresh and renew itself. In fact many scientists argue that humans are speeding up this process through overpopulation and climate change, and we may end up on the endangered species list before too long.
ZRS Member, Kelly Doyle, suggests that zombies could be a magic bullet to save the planet:
“When the dead rise there will be no need for a new ice age to destroy the millions of different animals and plants living in harmony. Man will simply eat itself out of the equation, and the rest of the world can go on like we were never there in the first place.”
Instead of an earth-shattering natural or man made catastrophe, zombies would be a low impact option for the earth to protect itself from all-out collapse. In this scenario, mankind is the infecting parasite that has upset the delicate global balance, and zombies are the best solution.
So when the first walking corpse starts clawing at your front door, don’t assume that there’s no more room in hell. It might just be that that mother nature is sick and tired of allowing humans to create hell on earth. Moan-moan. Chomp-comp. Problem solved.
