    what if they were raised by evil necromancy? does that make the zombies evil? or just tools? (probably just tools I suppose)

    from every zombie fiction i've ever watched or read, the "evil" is in the lack of human qualities... as in that which looks human but is fundamentally mindless. the horror is in the imagination: no, mom wouldn't attack and kill me... she's my mom. she looks like my mom. she loved me... the horror is that your mother's decaying brain wants to eat you.

    eta: perhaps it's worse. that there is no real love. mum's decaying brain proves it. the illusion is broken.

    I'd say zombies are evil in the same way theft or tofu is evil. They aren't the ones instigating the evilness, but their very existence is evil.

    Evil is a choice so if zombified they are unable to make that choice. They are fueled by an instinct to survive, which is not inherently evil.

    Evil is subjective

    Maybe the villagers were evil for allowing the circumstance for it to kill.

    Anyway, the moral of the story far as I'm concerned is this: less finger pointing more personal responsibility.

    To use your example, the tiger protected itself, and it's young by feeding them, the villagers... got careless then blamed something else other than themself

    So for villagers... Some ego involved

    Then we move to loose the ego and move to Buddhism. If it gets bad enough we behead ourselves and become zombies, the circle of the thread is complete.

    Gluttony is eating out of self-indulgence rather than for quelching hunger. When has eating to satisfy hunger been made into an evil? With the next question being: do zombies really eat to over-indulge and pamper themselves?

    to the extent i've fathomed their motives, they need no human flesh as sustenance to maintain their integrity or mobility and hunt us poor human solely for the exquisite taste of our brainnnzzzz.

    then again i do not speak from IME

    So, you got me thinking... I did some research...



    Direct quotes from Walsch’s “God” (From False Christ Coming: Does Anybody Care?)
    ****** and Evil

    Walsch:
    Well, I’m going to have to ask the questions here that I know so many people are thinking and wanting to ask. How could a man like ****** have gone to heaven? Every religion in the world. . . I would think every one, has declared him condemned and sent straight to hell.

    “God”: First, he could not have gone to hell because hell does not exist. Therefore, there is only one place left to which he could have gone. But that begs the question. The real issue is whether ******’s actions were “wrong.” Yet I have said over and over again that there is no “right” or “wrong” in the universe. A thing is not intrinsically right or wrong. A thing simply is.

    Now your thought that ****** was a monster is based on the fact that he ordered the killing of millions of people, correct?

    Walsch: Obviously, yes.

    “God”: Yet what if I told you that what you call “death” is the greatest thing that could happen to anyone—what then? (CWG Book 2, p. 36)

    I do not love “good” more than I love “bad.” ****** went to heaven. (CWG Book 1, p. 61)

    The mistakes ****** made did no harm or damage to those whose deaths he caused. Those souls were released from their earthly bondage, like butterflies emerging from a cocoon.

    (CWG Book 2, p. 42)

    So the first thing you have to understand—as I’ve already explained to you—is that ****** didn’t hurt anyone. In a sense, he didn’t inflict suffering, he ended it. (CWG Book 2, p. 56)

    (Taken from False Christ Coming: Does Anybody Care?, chapter 3 by Warren Smith)
