    oh wait.. the reason I brought up the guide for Disaster Assessment and Response is because it has all the ways an outbreak turns into an epidimec and so forth..

    What do we know about the epidemic?

    • So far, only humans are affected--a non-mutated cat was specifically mentioned as getting away from a Behemoth.
    • The foragers who went near what they thought was ground zero were said to get nauseous. Radiation? Radio Waves? Microwaves?
    • There were strange lifeforms near ground zero, but we don't know what that means. Could be mutations, could be from other dimensions (like Stephen King's The Fog) or planets (like War Of The Worlds).
    • It's only spread by direct contact between infected blood and cuts/openings in the skin.
    • Infects very quickly
    • It results in different types of mutations in humans


    Another theory which would be interesting is if the infection was spread in an inert state in tattoo ink and activated by a certain frequency.

    Hahah! Awesome theory!
    I'm so stoked I created this thread.

    What would trigger the frequency?
    Some radio waves?

    Microwaves, or radio waves would be my favorite. If this is meant to clear off humans ala The Screwfly Solution, it's the least damaging to the environment.

    I lean heavily towards an alien virus released at strategic points around the globe. It sounds a bit screwy but it seems like a simple solution to a very complex scenario. Alien creatures we either already living among us and introducing the virus, perhaps even with the help of goverment agencies with the promise of creating superhuman soldiers (Behemoths). When the alien creatures felt the time to strike was right they initiated order 66 (Star Wars reference); the virus was released turning a great number of humans on every landmass supporting human life into these zombies, or more accurately, alien slaves.

    Then you have pure aliens commanding the hordes, which is where the one with markings comes in. I also feel that the nausia experienced at the ground zero locations could be alien technology protecting settlements on Earth. It's either emiting a signal that causes nausia, or a the virus is heavily concentrated there to a point where inhalation of it causes these sick feelings.

    I'm very likely wrong on a few of the details, but you more or less get my theory. I'm ready for anyone to find any holes in it and help me refine it or forget it all together, but for the time being this is what I think makes the most sense.

    Now that my friend, is an original idea!
    Aside from the inner nerd screaming out when I read Order.66 that is a new and unexpected prediction for how the world may have ended!!

    Good work!

    INK as an ALIEN?!
    Even just a mind control human or something crazy!

    My lord...

    scary..

    It causes nausea, but not infection. Either it's the virus that is no longer active, or it's only one part of the equation.

    Besides a virus, it could also be nano technology.

    How about, "kc is from a parallel universe where he infected everyone and made them write in the journals so he could then come to our universe via his universe hopper and make a kick ass audio drama and get praise from all of us."

    Time to pick up the ol' bat and smash my radio and microwave then.

    Really it would suck if any type of wave did cause it.

    This reminds me of the book Cell, by Stephen King, anyone read it?
