Infection

Zombie myth#1 Zombies are the dead come back to life

While there have been cases of infected appearing to be dead, they are in fact still alive, though the heart rate can slow to the point of not being registered, they are not the resurrected dead. It has been argued however, that once the affects take hold, they are in fact dead, as the human side ceases to exist and all that is left is a savage, soulless monster that lacks humanity and reasoning.

Words of cold hope, found at an abandoned camp

No one knows what infected the world; no one came to true understanding. Some said it was the eclipse, darkening the earth, breaking down an invisible wall of protection that kept us safe from the dangers of the universe, others claimed it to be a biological weapon; made by the hands of man, created to thin an overcrowded population, or perhaps a weapon of war that was never meant to see the outside world. Whatever the theory, whatever the claim; before we even knew what was happening, death had blown her cold kiss over every nation, every state, every part of the world, and there was nothing to stop it. Every effort failed. All of man's ability was not enough. The world had never felt such punishment before or likely will again. In the grip of this we are still; waiting and hoping; living each day with faith we will see the day after. In our faith we are still seeking the path to salvation.

In the beginning, there were only conspiracy theories; wild ramblings of those who warned of something that was being created for our demise. Night after night, late night radio shows were mad with words of destruction and the coming day, telling the people to prepare for a plague the world had never seen; to be ready for the end of our civilization. No one listened. People continued on and the world remained; until rumors begin to spread of a strange illness. Though the media was quick to discredit anyone spreading such rumors, and experts were always on hand to give mundane explanations, this strange new illness moved faster than those trying to play it down. For that day predicted, the world's refusal to listen would be its downfall.
