I'm going to go with the other ZA fiction and say that it is the cause of accidental science experimentation.

I think it's supernatural too. There are too many references to the biblical apocalypse by characters and Kirkman's refusal to give it a scientific answer really make me think it's the apocalypse without god. Sort of "this is the end of humanity, the dead will roam until everyone's dead".

Any catastrophic global destruction can be labelled an apocalypse and every nationality has its religious equivalent. Whether that is the cause or not, there will always be those who believe.

Basically, any theory is correct because the cause of the outbreak will most likely never be revealed. I always toyed with the idea that it was an intentional attack by some government agent who was researching the means to weaponize viruses for overseas warfare and created this virus through inhuman experimentation. Rather than report it to the government, he believed this is the perfect way to restart the human race and wipe the world clean and reveal those who are the strongest of the human race. They spread it through specific vectors all throughout the world to infect everyone.
They believed that the world was doomed with so much pollution, war, crime, poverty, famine, and disease that it was time to restart the human race and start fresh. Create enough horror and then rebuild the world with those who were smart, strong, and resourceful enough to survive; the perfect people to rebuild a strong world. They would believe it all goes back to the start of evolution where survival was the only way to make a species stronger.

Anyone have any ideas what could have caused it? I know Kirkman has said he won't reveal it but when can still guess right?
i think its something religious, only because they mention religion many times in the comics and TV show

Sure. It was all explained in the movie Night of the Living Dead (1968). I just saw it on Cable TV today. looks like some probe returning from Venus was emitting high levels of radiation. Apparently, NASA lost contact with the probe when it started its return voyage and the probe was presumed lost.
When NASA reestablished contact with the probe that's when the radiation was detected. NASA self-destructed the probe but a little too late since now the dead are coming back to life and all.
