What? You don’t believe in zombies? Bitch, I kill you!

December 5, 2012

So a man in Long Island, New York is charged with attempted murder of his girlfriend and apparently it started with an argument about the plausibility of zombies (as regards the show Walking Dead).

Also, it does go to show how seriously some people take their epistemological principles and reminds me of what might happen if philosophers like Chalmers and Dennett were dating — “Damnit Chalmers for the last time, p-zombies aren’t possible! [BANG]”
