Bad news: CDC now issuing advice on how to prepare for the zombie apocalypse

posted at 8:28 pm on May 19, 2011 by Allahpundit

First, a religious group claims that the Rapture will happen this Saturday. Then this post mysteriously appears on the CDC’s official blog.

If I see any locusts tomorrow, I’m barricading the door.

There are all kinds of emergencies out there that we can prepare for. Take a zombie apocalypse for example. That’s right, I said z-o-m-b-i-e a-p-o-c-a-l-y-p-s-e. You may laugh now, but when it happens you’ll be happy you read this, and hey, maybe you’ll even learn a thing or two about how to prepare for a real emergency.

We’ve all seen at least one movie about flesh-eating zombies taking over (my personal favorite is Resident Evil…), but where do zombies come from and why do they love eating brains so much? The word zombie comes from Haitian and New Orleans voodoo origins. Although its meaning has changed slightly over the years, it refers to a human corpse mysteriously reanimated to serve the undead. Through ancient voodoo and folk-lore traditions, shows like the Walking Dead were born…

If zombies did start roaming the streets, CDC would conduct an investigation much like any other disease outbreak. CDC would provide technical assistance to cities, states, or international partners dealing with a zombie infestation. This assistance might include consultation, lab testing and analysis, patient management and care, tracking of contacts, and infection control (including isolation and quarantine). It’s likely that an investigation of this scenario would seek to accomplish several goals: determine the cause of the illness, the source of the infection/virus/toxin, learn how it is transmitted and how readily it is spread, how to break the cycle of transmission and thus prevent further cases, and how patients can best be treated. Not only would scientists be working to identify the cause and cure of the zombie outbreak, but CDC and other federal agencies would send medical teams and first responders to help those in affected areas (I will be volunteering the young nameless disease detectives for the field work).

If you’re a “Walking Dead” fan, you know just how effective the CDC would be in the event of a true zombie outbreak. A few points, then. One: While normally I’d be outrageously outraged that taxpayer money was being spent on something as fanciful as this, (a) it’s actually a clever way to spread tips on emergency awareness (the site has been swamped with traffic) and (b) the sheer awesomeness of the zombie genre justifies any expense. Two: Elsewhere in the piece, the author claims that once you’re bitten by a zombie, you’re a goner. Not true, actually; quick action to amputate the bitten limb can isolate the infection before it spreads to the brain. Amiright, “Day of the Dead” fans? Three: There’s simply no way, in a world where Romero classics like “Night of the Living Dead” and “Dawn of the Dead” exist, that this guy’s favorite zombie movie is “Resident Evil.” Nor is it true that zombies have any special appetite for brains, as even casual zombie-flick fans would happily tell you. They’re not picky in what they eat. They’re dead. They’re all messed up. Which means the author of this piece is either dangerously misinformed about the true threat from the zombie menace or this is government disinformation designed to reduce the public’s capacity to respond effectively. What is Obama up to now?

Exit question: Can anyone explain quickly in the comments who’ll allegedly be saved and who won’t on Rapture Day Saturday? Is it all theists, or just Christians, or just some Christians? I want to gauge how many of us will be left behind to battle the zombie hordes come Sunday. Luckily I live in New York City, so … pretty much all of us will still be here.

Update (Ed): You think you have it bad, AP?  I’ll be in Vegas on Saturday.  I’d bet on the number of people being Raptured out of there on Saturday, but I doubt the bookies are taking bets on anything above the number … oh … one.

I think this is actually a very effective use of taxpayer funds. Part of the CDC’s mission is emergency/disaster prep & response, and educating the citizenry. This does that in a very clever way, for basically pennies.

Mad props to the CDC.

I doubt they put this up to raise awareness of emergency planning. Anyone who follows the zombie threat knows that guns are first on your list of must haves. I doubt the government wants to send THAT message.

According to the Camping Camp (came up with that on my own!), the only ones raptured will be Camping and his devout followers, who have left the Church (which, according to Camping, is now in league with satan) and followed Camping’s interpretation of Scripture. So it looks like we’re both hosed AP!

CurtZHP on May 19, 2011 at 8:39 PM

One serious note: Imagine how this would be skewered as idiotic and a waste of taxpayer expense if the Bush Admin did the same. It’d be the latest evidence that he’s an idiot, as are the members of his admin.

But Obama doing it? How clever! How funny! How genius!

Dude, Resident Evil is awesome, and I’m a huge zombie fan.

Now, I played the games, admittedly, which makes the movie even more awesome. But the guy is on solid ground for saying it’s his favorite. (The sequels are just so-so.)

Southern Baptist-turned-atheist-as-ateen here – those with Chirst in their hearts go to heaven, the rest of us endure the three stages of tribulation. The first one cleans out most of us, then those who can endure through the final two stages … profit? Seems like Jews are dealt with differently in tribulation depending on who you ask.

Sorry, AP. NYC will be gone. Only a few Christians will be saved from what I was told. Granted, I was trying to extricate myself from an unexpected, unwanted conversation (years ago) in a book store, so I didn’t catch all of the details. It was rather odd because I was actually looking for a Bible. Some woman grabbed my arm and started in on me. I told her that I wished her a good trip and much happiness and to shove off. She called me a YANKEE!! lol

Guess we’ll be left behind, or I’ll see you in he//,

joejm65 on May 19, 2011 at 8:52 PM

The whole idea of a ‘rapture’ is actually not in the Bible. Anywhere.

Christians had never heard of such a thing until the weirdo explosion in New England and New York in the 19th century. No kidding.

And yeah, the CDC’s advice is strictly beta. In the first place: NO FREAKING WEAPONS! And where’s the advice that you can usually escape zombies by simply pushing out from shore on a boat???

I want me a yacht and a shotgun! After that, it’s all details.

Scribbler on May 19, 2011 at 8:53 PM

Exit question: Can anyone explain quickly in the comments who’ll allegedly be saved and who won’t on Rapture Day Saturday?

From an informed Christian’s perspective, the Rapture is B.S.

If Jesus is coming Saturday, you’ll have plenty of time to believe in him and be saved before you die from the many plagues befalling humanity. The idea that believers are zapped away is unsupportable in scripture or tradition, and is an entirely modern idea spread, in part, to sell books.

canopfor on May 19, 2011 at 9:09 PM

I’m not a Bible scholar, but I think this passage from the Gospel of Luke, Chapter 17, is the source of the narrative of the Rapture:

26 “Just as it was in the days of Noah, so also will it be in the days of the Son of Man. 27 People were eating, drinking, marrying and being given in marriage up to the day Noah entered the ark. Then the flood came and destroyed them all.

28 “It was the same in the days of Lot. People were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building. 29 But the day Lot left Sodom, fire and sulfur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all.

30 “It will be just like this on the day the Son of Man is revealed. 31 On that day no one who is on the housetop, with possessions inside, should go down to get them. Likewise, no one in the field should go back for anything. 32 Remember Lot’s wife! 33 Whoever tries to keep their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life will preserve it. 34 I tell you, on that night two people will be in one bed; one will be taken and the other left. 35 Two women will be grinding grain together; one will be taken and the other left.” [36]

However, Mark 13:32 states that “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.”

I conclude that any human prediction regarding apocalyptic events will be automatically wrong.

Mary in LA on May 19, 2011 at 9:09 PM
