“Zombies live forever…and so will you!” That’s the slogan I saw on the chalkboard in one of my classes today, followed by a date, time, and location. Hmm, vague yet intriguing slogan, with no identifying information? I turned to my friend Ben.

“I totally bet that’s a religious group.”

And after five seconds of Googling, I found out I was right. Chi Alpha Christian Fellowship at Purdue is putting on the event. I have to give them props for their marketing. Humans versus Zombies (effectively a giant, nerdy, insane game of tag involving nerf guns) just got done at Purdue. It was incredibly popular, and they’re working off of our zombie fascination. And the whole dishonest lack of information about what the event is really about – ah, ingenious and typical religious marketing (and not to mention, against Purdue student organization rules).

But I have to say, I’m pretty excited. I never knew that Christianity preached that we all turn into zombies when we die! Well, other than Zombie Jesus, of course. On the other hand, zombies aren’t really alive, so maybe they’re a tad bit confused…

    Duh. When they are born again, what exactly did you think they were being re-birthed as? A relentless ghoul that goes after anything with a brain. Kinda makes sense now, doesn't it?

    As to who would win the fight between Jebus and Superman…well, see for yourself.

    Hey, that's the group that has been reading from the Bible between Stewart and PMU. I was wondering if they were allowed to be there. Is that a spot you can reserve?

    Pfffft. Zombies.

    SUPERGOD.

    Though I suppose the 6 Million Dollar Man character in that story might technically qualify as a sort of cyber-zombie? Maybe more so the Somali thing that hasn't been seen yet.

    Vanessa: There is a way to reserve that space, but it's through the Union, so I can't double check online (unlike if they had reserved an indoor space).

    What about the Deadites? The jury's still out as to whether they're dead, possessed living people, or some superposition of the two states.

    Zombies don't live forever; they're thinking of vampires! (Then again, with all that "drink my blood, eat my flesh" perhaps Jesus was a hybrid of some sort. ;P)

    Just found you through a retweet of your atheist Barbie. Love your blog!
