More Thoughts on Zombies.

Awhile back Coffee Snob had a blog about zombies and the Christian worldview. After watching the zombie movie "Quarantine" I would like to pose a question about why zombies frighten us. Is it possible that part of the fear struck by zombies flows from confronting something that so closely resembles human beings, but clearly does not bear the image of God?

Baird boy,

I think you've hit on something here. I never thought about it before, but you're right. It's one thing to confront a giant spider, or a hideous monster, but a "hollow" version of ourselves, devoid of humanity. That's truly terrifying.
