The Mayans predicted that the world would end on June 21st, 2012 (later changed to December 21st, 2012) which didn’t happen. But historians and experts have warned that some of Nostradamus’ apocalyptic predictions such as plagues were very common during his time.
A lot of social media users have taken to Twitter to share their reactions to the apocalyptic theories going on the internet. Source: AMC By Gina Vaynshteyn If you love reading about eerie predictions and the end of the world, you've come to the right place.
Apparently French astrologer Michel de Nostradamus predicted a zombie apocalypse for 2021, because at this point, why not? However, it's important to note that his prophecies are in poetry form, and are often times vague.
He also allegedly threw in a famine and a couple of asteroids smashing into earth. Some believe he predicted COVID-19 when he wrote, “There will be a twin year from which will arise a queen who will come from the east and who will spread a plague in the darkness of night, on a country with 7 hills and will transform the twilight of men into dust, to destroy and ruin the world.
Plus, experts aren't exactly alarmed by Nostradamus's apocalyptic prophecies anyway, especially with the mention of plagues. Most of us believe that the idea of zombies should be confined to the horror section of our preferred movie providers.
In them, he discovered details of a genuine US military plan to combat a zombie outbreak. Peter Cummings, a scientist from Boston University, states that several diseases and conditions already exist that could cause someone to be viewed as a zombie.
According to Cummings, the key to understanding the potential for these conditions to produce zombie traits was to examine the shutdown of the frontal lobe of the brain. He claimed that this resets the mind to its primal survival instincts, which is a zombielike state.
However, any “stimulation” from another person during this time made these patients “go berserk.” For what it’s worth, Cummings works in an advisory capacity for the Zombie Research Society, “an organization dedicated to the historic, cultural, and scientific study of the living dead.” When thinking of zombies, most people conjure up images of the dead rising from their graves.
She stated that the rising dead was an unlikely scenario, but the mutation of a virus similar to rabies wasn’t. Furthermore, she warned that this mutated strain could spread around the world and cause a condition almost identical to the typical view of a zombie.
For example, what if an individual or a group of people take it upon themselves to create a mutation of such a virus for the so-called “greater good” of the planet? With the slave trade, these traditions and practices made the journey to many parts of the Americas.
In recent times, Haiti has become one of the epicenters of modern cases of “zombies.” In fact, the notion of voodoo permeates the mindset of the population. Without a doubt, one of the most controversial claims of real-life zombies came from Wade Davis of Harvard University.
Even more intriguing was Davis’s claims that criminals were turned into zombies in antiquity to stop their wayward behavior. Ultimately, he stated that creating zombies was achieved through a mixture of secret natural toxins.
Other believed that such discoveries, if true, would be of great interest to secret military projects. Researcher Zora Neal Huston has performed some of the most exhaustive studies of zombies in Haiti.
Almost half a century before Davis, Huston claimed that “people have been called back from the dead.” Supposedly, she had also witnessed real “zombies in Haiti.” In one intriguing account, Huston tells of being invited to study hoodoo rituals up close.
A hoodoo priest gave permission for the unique opportunity, and Huston eventually performed several rituals herself. However, the account in her 1938 book, Tell My Horse: Voodoo and Life in Haiti and Jamaica, really grabbed people’s attention.
‘ Zombie Parasite Takes Over Insects Through Mind Control | National Geographic The main worry is that these natural methods will be replicated in a science lab and used against the general population.
For example, many natural zombies are created when a parasite enters the nervous system of an animal through the food chain. This is most often an effort to bring the animal out into the open and in full view of its natural predators.
Stephen Kane, an associate professor at the University of California, Riverside, certainly has a unique theory as to why aliens have not visited Earth. In 2014, he claimed that space travel in the past had left such astronauts stranded as zombies on an unknown planet.
When we view the idea of zombies in those terms, the prospect doesn’t appear so laughable regardless of how unlikely it is to happen. Some researchers insist that the intelligence world is seeking to turn people into zombies through the use of drugs and mind control.
Talk of infection rates, lockdowns and overwhelming pressure on health surface has left the planet in an eerie state (Image: GETTY)”People who are infected by zombies have immediate symptoms, often turning in a matter of minutes or hours. This would differ greatly to the COVID-19 incubation period, where symptoms do not tend to show for an average of 5.1 days.
Ms Sawmills goes on to detail how in zombie movies, once health and police services fall and governments collapse, people tend to turn into the worst versions of themselves. However, she states that in reality, this would probably not be the case and that the current coronavirus crisis shows how supportive humans actually are to one another.
Live forever: Wonder drugs kill zombie cells and prevent diseases But there are mechanisms for how to resolve these problems (including murder, etc) in ways that actively attempt to curtail violence.
It is a mystery to me why in the Walking Dead, for example, people don’t just move away from each other, given that the world is almost totally depopulated, and they could go anywhere! Coronavirus symptoms (Image: EXPRESS)”And our heroes of the moment are those who have been caring for all of us all along: nurses, doctors, teachers, (home) cooks, grocery store workers, farmers...
“That desire to reach out and help people during a crisis is often missing in zombie films, which tend to assume that we will all descend into Aggressively Individualistic Survival Mode unless forced to do otherwise. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) appears fairly confident it knows what to do in the event of a zombie apocalypse.
According to Hollywood, all it takes is one victim to contract a virus that turns humans into the walking dead for the entire globe to stand on the brink of collapse. And as the coronavirus pandemic has shown this year, diseases can get out of hand and spread across long distances rapidly.
“CDC would provide technical assistance to cities, states, or international partners dealing with a zombie infestation. The CDC's primary goal would be to investigate the virus's source, its transmission routes and how readily it is spread.
