You guys have to be kidding me. Just because you want to believe in something doesn't make it true or factual. Scientifically speaking, there is NO and I repeat NO factual evidence (lore and myth does not equal fact) of vampires existing. Sure there are tales from around the world of vampire type monsters/entities etc, but no real proof at all whatsoever. Tales from around the world do not equal proof, there are tales from many cultures around the world that tell about ships etc falling off the ends of the world when they thought it was flat.
So you see this is not evidence at all. The only information of such things comes from bronze aged superstitious cultures and societies (was par for the course in that age). Most of you “believers” will not like this post and will jump down my throat because it goes against what you want to believe (without any proof). That is fine but at least read this for what it is: FACTUAL. With the known facts, there has never been any vampires at all whatsoever, this is the truth as the facts are known, and as such is undeniable. Unless you want to be called a liar.
No one and I repeat no one can say that they are a vampire or know first hand that vampires exist without providing undeniable tangible proof. And until such proof is presented one must conclude that vampires do not exist and never have. To do otherwise in absence of such evidence is doing nothing more than wishing and assuming.
Now, to be logical about this. If vampires did exist, there would be numerous evidence of them. From DNA to skin and viral samples from their victims... to all types of forensic evidence of human bite marks with elongated canine teeth etc. There is no such evidence. None at all. And for those of you that think such a creature would leave only two puncture marks sadly have your head in the clouds. No blood sucking animal (a few birds and bats etc are known to feed off of blood) leaves a nice small puncture wound. All wounds are slashing or pecking wounds. Nothing like what is in the myths or books. Its not possible. Not with the way anatomy and physics work.
Sorry to burst peoples bubbles. But these are facts and as such are irrefutable. Also just so everyone knows… Blood is actually not nutritious at all. Very little nutrients are in it. Ask any hematologist. For a mammal of human size the amount of fresh blood (blood breaks down fast) needed would be so astronomical that thousands would be dieing left and right (with human bite marks mutilation) just to support a small vampire population. We are just not seeing this.
Like I said earlier these are facts. If anyone has real quantifiable evidence to the contrary, please I challenge you to present it. If you have any proof of another subtype or another pure type of human by all means present your findings. I would welcome it. I am asking for real evidence factual and not made up or assumptions that you twist to try to fit known myths just to make your case. Religion already does enough of this.
