A lethal airborne virus/bacteria/fungus would accomplish the same thing, no zombies...everyone just dies.

And if god wanted the worthy survive...well, the bigger jerks and predators would survive...not the meek.
Maybe the worthy are those who do survive the zombie hordes, regardless of past crimes and indiscretions.

If you're trying to find a religious angle to the show or even a Christian one, I'd look elsewhere. In an earlier episode this season rick prays to a giant statue of Jesus in a church and immediately following that event his son gets shot and almost dies.

^^ Sweet.

Even if Rick suspected Shane would become a zombie, he probably wouldn't expect it to happen in thirty seconds.

Although if you wanted to push a Christian reading, it would still be a dark one: Rick's group needs to find the farm and ally themselves with Herschel, so God sends a minor miracle - the beauty of the deer - which leads to exactly the situation in which Rick needs Herschel's particular skills. God moves in mysterious ways - sometimes brutal ways - and Carl's pain leads to a "greater good."

Not saying I believe it, but you can make a case for a cruel but moral God here. He said He wouldn`t flood the world again, not that he wouldn`t unleash a cannibal virus.

If The Walking Dead turns into another Battlestar Galactica I'll be done with TV for good.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 2 Discussion *Spoilers*

I'd love it if the CDC guy had told Rick something else. Maybe he told him that only half his group were infected. Maybe it's only the men. Who knows? Why would Rick want to hang Randall as an option if he knew he needed to shoot him in the head once he reanimated? That's what puzzles me.

It doesn't need to be airborne if everyone is infected.
Unless it is some kind of genetic time-bomb it would need to virulently airborne to infect all of humanity.
Maybe it's a cylon dorment gene

He shot the skinny guy in the head and the fat man twice in the chest and once in the head.
Of course though that is just how police are trained to shoot assailants.
nope, not trained to shoot in the head. Center mass body shots. He just shot the fat guy cause he knew he was gonna turn

I'm with you guys. For such a promising start, BSG ended on such an odious note. (IMHO).

There's no evidence to support that. I can just as easily maintain he did it to put him out of his misery.

The fact is, if Rick did know that Shane was gonna come back, then it strains credibility that he'd suddenly forget just because he was a bit upset about having to kill Shane. It's the most important thing he could know at this point because it makes any death a threat. Rick may be emotional, but he's not an idiot, especially when it comes to keeping his family safe, and by extension keeping himself alive to protect them.
