Can brain dead patients be brought back to life? Is death the end? Dr. Frankenstein would beg to differ. Basically, I guess it depends on how far gone we are. Zombies, for instance, leave a negative impression of what reanimation would be like, and yes, this would be too far gone for redemption, in my [...]
