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. The French astrologer, whose real name was Michel de Nostredame, made a series of predictions in his book Les Prophecies in 1555.
Nostradamus wrote 100 years before the Great Fire: “The blood of the just will commit a fault at London, Burnt through lightning of twenty threes the six: As such, over the course of hundreds of years, at least a few are bound to come into fruition with the meaning of the philosophers’ words interpreted differently after the event took place.
This is one of the greatest fears of humanity, inspired by a bulk of Hollywood movies, and scientists do believe a zombie outbreak could happen. While it would be impossible to believe the dead would rise and feed on the living, experts do think that a parasite could affect the brain or a virus could evolve.
Already it is believed half of humans around the world have a dormant version of the parasite on their brains in the form of harmless cysts. Wendy Ingham, who was involved in the study, said the team tested the parasite on mice which were ultimately unfazed by the presence of a predator once infected.

Of all the horror tropes, zombies might be the most accessible because the idea of the dead rising from their graves dates back to when early man was living in caves. Since not much is known about what happens to us when we die, the idea that corpses could somehow be reanimated is something that has always captured people’s imaginations.
There are actually numerous real-world examples that closely parallel what we see in zombie books and movies. In fact, in the animal kingdom we can find a real-life example in tropical countries like Brazil.
We also know of numerous bacteria and fungi that can infect the human brain and change the way a person thinks and acts. Recently, scientists have discovered tiny organisms carried by house cats that can infect the human brain causing everything from altered brain chemistry and changes in personality to schizophrenia, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and Parkinson’s disease.

Whether they’re walking down the street or driving a car if someone isn’t able to process decisions it could spell disaster for innocent bystanders. Haitian zombies As crazy as it sounds, there are documented medical cases that suggest some sort of modification in humans in Haiti.
In the same year, in northern Haiti, the local peasants claimed to have found a group of zombies wandering aimlessly in the fields. AT THE Center DE Psychiatric ET Neurologic in Port Prince, Dr. La marque Coupon, a Haitian-born, Canadian-trained psychiatrist, has been systematically investigating all reports of zombies since 1961.
Though convinced zombies were real, he had been unable to find a scientific explanation for the phenomenon. Anthropologist and ethnobotanist Wade Davis Ph.D., has spent years investigating a possible scientific explanation for the alleged existence of zombies in Haiti.
While studying the phenomenon, he discovered a powder used by Voodoo practitioners that he believes is responsible for some cases. There are also stories of people experimenting with drugs for the first time and having horrible reactions that land them in all kinds of trouble.
Not only do the drugs take away their fear and inhibitions while giving them enhanced strength, but their ability to think is also gone. What’s worse is that they might be hallucinating, in which case they might perceive you as the threat, which means you are the target.
During the first season, the survivors head to the Center for Disease Control headquarters in Atlanta for answers and find that the government is as helpless as everyone else.

Just because “Hollywood zombies don’t exist doesn’t mean that there aren’t similar threats to your family’s survival and well-being. While Hollywood zombies may not be existed, there are real situations that mimic zombie attacks, from people high on drugs to people who are so preoccupied with their phones, gadgets and what’s going on in “reality TV” that they might as well be among the undead.
Many of these people were shot and killed simply for walking over some imaginary line in Chicago’s notorious gang filled neighborhoods. These aren’t poor urban kids in some neighborhood that you’ll never have to walk through; these are people of every race, and from every corner of America.
