This is the one time we can absolutely confirm that, as Discovery Channel prepares to air the premiere of “Zombie Apocalypse” tonight, Tuesday 18 at 10/9c. Could humans really turn into zombies? Hear from scientists who are seriously studying the question, and from the “zombie preppers” who are getting ready for what they believe is the inevitable. It may not be what the Mayans were thinking about when they were creating the Mayan Calendar (don’t worry, we’ve got you covered on the Mayan Doomsday Prophecy), but in today’s world many think zombies could actually be a part of society’s demise. Who knows though…perhaps zombies were all part of the Mayan vision of the end.
What ARE these things?: Zombies don’t need much of an introduction or explanation as they’ve overtaken pop culture books, movies and events. We know them as the human “undead”; those who stagger, covered in blood, with only one mission in mind – to feast on those of us who haven’t been turned. The only way to stop them? Get them in the brain. (Source: Discovery Channel)
