The way we categorize zombies is based on what brought them back and they can be put into four main groups: Chemical/Medical, Radioactive, Parasitic, and Religious. There is, admittedly, something rather unscientific about the entire concept of zombies. They are dead for a reason, something doesn’t work, either because of physical damage or because of disease, the body stops working. So in humans, if the heart is destroyed, blood doesn’t pump and the body stops. Somehow magically, most zombies manage to keep functioning without that problem and even in the face of horrible damage and decay can keep going. This is why we say zombies of all types defy logic no matter how fun they are.
I’ve previously posted about Haitian Voodoo zombies and how they are magically brought back. Jesus is just the same to me. He’s a magical reincarnation of a human and he promotes the drinking of blood and eating of flesh among his followers. Growing up catholic I was always told about the process of transmogrification. This means that during the catholic mass, the host (bread) is literally turned into the flesh of christ and the wine is literally turned into the blood of christ. Not figuratively mind you. We were taught it happened literally.
Now honestly, would you believe that?
