The classic fright film The Night of the Living dead (1968) was filmed in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Now there’s another zombie attack in Pennsylvania.
For the past couple years, the CDC has taken advantage of pop culture in order to encourage people to stay prepared. The zombie theme that they have employed is spreading to other disaster relief agencies of government. There’s even a comic book. The CDC explains:
Our graphic novel, “Preparedness 101: Zombie Pandemic” demonstrates the importance of being prepared in an entertaining way that people of all ages will enjoy. Readers follow Todd, Julie and their dog Max as a strange new disease begins spreading, turning ordinary people into zombies.
I think the CDC was on to something, because ever since they embarked on their zombie tour, we have seen a series of events that bear striking resemblances to actual zombies. So much so, that the CDC has had to reassure people that there is no real “zombie apocalypse,” and all their zombie talk was just “a tongue in cheek campaign to engage new audiences with preparedness messages.” The CDC stated that it didn’t really think there was such a disease that would actually bring people back from the dead to feast on live flesh or at least cause living people to display “zombie-like” symptoms.
The first of such instances was one in Miami where a naked man chewed a homeless man’s face off. This event also brought to the forefront “bath salts,” that supposedly caused the “zombie’s” psychosis. The latest of such cases comes out of Pennsylvania. A 20-year-old apparently parked his car in a neighborhood, got out and disrobed to his underwear before trying to break in a house. When he was unsuccessful, he removed his last garment of clothing, broke in an unoccupied house, went up to the second floor bedroom and jumped out the window. He sustained several leg and arm injuries as a result, and he was covered in blood. He ran and found two girls on the sidewalk, tackled one of them and began to gnaw on her head while screaming like an animal and dripping blood on her. The girls were able to get away and call the police. When the police arrived, they tazed the crazed man after he punched an EMT who was trying to help him. Eventually, he was subdued and transported to a hospital where he was treated for his injuries.
I don’t really know what to make of these incidents. These two especially show men being reduced to pure animal instincts. The Bible talks about people being “given over to their fleshly lusts” and being “delivered to Satan for the destruction of their flesh.” These have specific references to sexual immorality, but these deranged individuals seem to be given over to something and literally destroying their own flesh and the flesh of others.
There’s another example in the Bible of someone being reduced to an animal. It was Nebuchadnezzar, the arrogant Babylonian king. God reduced him to a wild animal for 7 years in order to humble him. I don’t think he tried to eat anyone’s face off, but he may have looked like he wanted to.
For whatever reason, God is allowing these people to behave like rabid beasts. Perhaps your neighborhood will be next. Make sure you’re prepared. I doubt the CDC mentioned the importance of the 2nd Amendment in the midst of a Zombie Apocalypse.
