The myths and legends that are researched to make theories date back far into the past, and yet, their isn’t enough evidence to be able to say vampires exist as a fact. It’s a mystery we can’t shake after all these years. I believe vampirism is an idea that will never be proven, at least not online, and that is the only worldwide connection we all share. There are some posters on here that believe in vampirism based on personal experiences, and that is pretty much the only way to write it in stone. But with the internet, you don’t have that assurance. Videos can be faked, along with pictures, and when it comes to forums… well, that just turns into “he said, she said”. As a whole, it’s a mystery eternal.
I can’t put faith or belief in the existence of vampires, but what place do I have to say they don’t exist. However, I do understand that the media gives people (specifically younger people) the fascination of vampires. The dreams of vampirism, if that’s understandable.
People post comments on here straight up claiming they are a vampire, and notice how there is always at least one skeptic. Now, obviously, we’re dealing with the internet, and when we get right down to it, it can’t be proven. In the end, it’s left to faith, or an open-mind… but to come to a decision on whether they exist or not, as the title of the article asks… it can’t be left up to open-mindedness. You either accept the possibility or not. Seeing as how there is no middle ground online, stating that you are a vampire or giving scenarios showing signs is pretty much irrelevant… unless of course, you just want to share your dreams and experiences. And maybe people only post these things because having someone else believe them makes them feel good… and maybe that will just drag them deeper into their dream… or experience.
I guess the main point I want to get across is this, and I use an example:
We see a black or white person, and we acknowledge them to be black or white. It’s fact, and we accept it. The idea of vampirism taking the place of either of those examples is impossible, because of the media. It can never be accepted worldwide that vampires exist or don’t exist. So what is left… but to grab on to a dream. That is all vampirism will truly be.
