I still checked out your article and it did have some good points. I had some counter points for a few of them, but it was still interesting.

"You Might Be A Zombie" from the editors of Cracked.com
ISBN# 978-0-452-29639-8
Page 280: "5 Scientific Reasons Why a Zombie Apocalypse Could Actually Happen"
5. Brain Parasites
There's a parasite called Toxoplasma gondii that makes rats abandon rational thought and self-preservation, and rats are pretty similar to humans, so it wouldn't be very hard for it to evolve to controlling us, especially if sped up by bioengineering.

4. Neurotoxins
There are poisons that slow your body to the point that doctors consider you dead. But they can be brought back using alkaloids, and its already been done to a man who was considered dead by two doctors and buried.

3. The Real Rage Virus
Mad Cow Disease. Although it isn't widespread and thw people afflicted with it don't attack in the stereotypical zombie way, it does prove that there are contagious diseases that turn people into mindless, sometimes violent creatures. And according to the book if just one disease managed to prevent seretonin from being absorbed we would turn into a mindless killing machine.

2. Neurogenesis
Stem cell research has already been able to regrow brains in comatose patients, allowing them to wake up and walk around again. Only problem is that that brain is slowly destroyed from the outside, which gives our logic and personality, leaving basic motor control and instincts, and all it would take is an evil genius to lead them.

1. Nanobots
Scientists have already fused a silicone chip to a virus, and it can keep functioning up to a month after the virus is officially dead. Studies say they'll be able to use nanobots in your brain to replace damaged neural connections. In the book's exact words:
"Do the math, people.
Someday there will be nanobots in your brain. Those nanobots will be programmed to keep functioning after you die. They can form their own neural pathways and use your brain to keep operating your limbs after you've deceased and, presumably, right up until you rot into pieces midstride.
Of course, when that happens, the nanobots would just need to transfer to a new host. Therefore, the last act of the nanobot zombie would be to bite a whole into a healthy victim, letting the nanobots stream in and set up camp in the new host."
