Are there any Christians here who believe in zombies?

Are there any Christians here who believe in zombies?
In Matthew 27:52, it is written,

Quote:and the tombs broke open. The bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. (NIV)

Why did no secular sources record this "event"?
And without delay Peter went quickly out of the synagogue (assembly) and went unto the house of Marcellus, where Simon lodged: and much people followed him...And Peter turned unto the people that followed him and said: Ye shall now see a great and marvellous wonder. And Peter seeing a great dog bound with a strong chain, went to him and loosed him, and when he was loosed the dog received a man's voice and said unto Peter: What dost thou bid me to do, thou servant of the unspeakable and living God? Peter said unto him: Go in and say unto Simon in the midst of his company: Peter saith unto thee, Come forth abroad, for thy sake am I come to Rome, thou wicked one and deceiver of simple souls. And immediately the dog ran and entered in, and rushed into the midst of them that were with Simon, and lifted up his forefeet and in a loud voice said: Thou Simon, Peter the servant of Christ who standeth at the door saith unto thee: Come forth abroad, for thy sake am I come to Rome, thou most wicked one and deceiver of simple souls. And when Simon heard it, and beheld the incredible sight, he lost the words wherewith he was deceiving them that stood by, and all of them were amazed. (The Acts of Peter, 9)

The zombies ate their brains.
Dying to live, living to die.

Why not...honestly?   The dead magically rose from their graves but were only magically seen by the author of magic book.
I am the Infantry. I am my country’s strength in war, her deterrent in peace. I am the heart of the fight… wherever, whenever. I carry America’s faith and honor against her enemies. I am the Queen of Battle. I am what my country expects me to be, the best trained Soldier in the world. In the race for victory, I am swift, determined, and courageous, armed with a fierce will to win. Never will I fail my country’s trust. Always I fight on…through the foe, to the objective, to triumph overall. If necessary, I will fight to my death. By my steadfast courage, I have won more than 200 years of freedom. I yield not to weakness, to hunger, to cowardice, to fatigue, to superior odds, For I am mentally tough, physically strong, and morally straight. I forsake not, my country, my mission, my comrades, my sacred duty. I am relentless. I am always there, now and forever. I AM THE INFANTRY! FOLLOW ME!

Apparently, Mel Gibson is making his sequel to The Passion of the Christ, and part of it will take place in Hell. I really hope this turns out to be the Christian blockbuster we’ve all been waiting for: Jesus’ cricifixion leads to the dead coming back to life and starting a zombie apocalypse, and Jesus has to come back to stop them. And he has to confront the spirit of Judas, who’s really pissed at becoming a byword for traitor when he was literally doing what Jesus told him to do. And maybe seriously question the competence of God himself.

When marlon Brando made a movie that took place on a tropical Polynesian island, he bought the island afterwards, moved to it, and married his Polynesian costar.

Perhaps Mel Gibson will stay in hell after he is finished filming as well.

teachings of the Bible are so muddled and self-contradictory that it was possible for Christians to happily burn heretics alive for five long centuries. It was even possible for the most venerated patriarchs of the Church, like St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas, to conclude that heretics should be tortured (Augustine) or killed outright (Aquinas). Martin Luther and John Calvin advocated the wholesale murder of heretics, apostates, Jews, and witches. - Sam Harris, "Letter To A Christian Nation"

do you not uderstand the difference between a zombie and the resurrected?

Zombies are not self aware, who ever the dead were they no longer are, what is left is a primal example of the living dead. What Jesus is describing is the resurrection of the dead where the dead simply woke up. and lived out what life they had left. 

In the end we are all to be resurrected some to eternal life other to everlasting destruction.

While we have your expertise, what's the difference between a goblin and a kobold?
