Questions & Answers

  • Are there real vampires?

    do vampires exist?

    Vampires DO NOT exist, and this can be proven with the application of logic, critical thinking skills, and verified scientific and medical data: 1. Vampires, defined as a humanoid being that MUST consume blood or energy to survive do not exist. Cut and paste time, as it is too much work to type this out over and over and I "recycle" my own answers instead of retyping them so here goes. A brief discussion of the human digestive system and then the probable vampire population given an exponential growth rate should explain why vampires are not possible. 2. The human body is not designed to process large amounts of blood for nutrition. There is not enough protein, carbohydrates, and fats present in blood to maintain a complex creature such as Homo Sapiens or any theorized offshoot mutations. When a human ingests food it is first broken up into a bolus by chewing, then churned up in the stomach with digestive juices to form a mass called chyme. It then passes through the pylorus into the duodenum, part of the small intestine where it mixes with bile salts and secretions from the pancreas and liver which continue breaking it down on a molecular basis, mostly affecting fats at this point. The broken down nutrients pass through the wall of the intestines and into the bloodstream where they are carried to each cell or stored for later use. Indigestible bulk continues through the intestines, turning a dark brown from the bile. Water is absorbed from this mass in the large intestine depending on the needs of the body - a well-hydrated person will usually have a softer stool than a dehydrated person will. Water also enters the bloodstream, and this is what helps to maintain blood pressure. The pressure tends to balance itself in a healthy person because the bloodstream goes through a formation in the kidney called the Loop of Henle, where the narrowing blood vessel forces excess water and cellular waste such as urea out through the cellular wall into the kidneys, where it is excreted through the ureters into the bladder, and then out of the body via the urethral passageway. 3. IMPORTANT - A person physically unable to process his own food for nutrition therefore also could not process blood - it's the same process. Ingested blood does not transmit directly to the veins anyway - it would be chemically broken down by the digestive system. 4. Theoretical ingestion of blood to supply these nutrients would therefore have to occur at least once a day, and would require the ingestion of the entire blood supply which could not happen as the stomach is far too small to hold that much liquid volume. Hold up your clenched fist - under normal conditions your stomach is about that size. Furthermore, such a mass would be difficult to pass thru the intestines as it has no fibrous bulk, would create an intestinal impaction, causing massive vomiting from the large concentration of iron present, and any "real" vampire would have to eventually expel the waste, which would come out as a black, tarry, smelly goo, just as stool does when blood is present from a upper GI bleed. 5. These humans that affect the whole "vampiric lifestyle" are NOT vampires. They are simply humans playing their own little game, in their own little fantasy world, usually pandering to their own little sexual fetish, which may or may not actually be sexual. I too, play my own little game, in the SCA, but mine is a game where the deeds that I do are determined by the strength of my arm and sword - I am a warrior, with just as much skill and ability as any warrior of ancient times. The difference is that I am claiming to be something physically possible: a warrior, and I prove it everytime I strap on my armor and walk onto a SCA battlefield. The so-called "vampires" are claiming to be something physically impossible: a walking corpse, and all they prove is that black Victorian clothing, a pair of false fangs, and a little makeup make for a good Halloween costume - it does not make you a vampire 6. Even if a vampire feeds once a week, and his victim also becomes a vampire, that is exponential growth, with four iterations a month. First iteration: One makes one, total two. Second iteration: Two make two, total four. Third iteration: Four make four, total eight. Fourth iteration: Eight make eight, total sixteen. 16 vampires at the end of one month, 256 at the end of the second month, 4096 by the end of the third month, 65,536 by the end of the fourth month, 1,048,476 at the end of the fifth, and 33,572,832 vampires at the end of half a year! By way of comparison, there are currently approximately 33 million people who have HIV/AIDS and the disease is a world-wide epidemic. I see people every day in the hospital with AIDS, but never has there been one documented case of a vampire attack. Do the math - vampires are a mathematical impossibility. As for the idea that vampires existed "a long time ago" consider the estimated global population5,000 years ago - using the above mathematical rationale, a single vampire could have converted every human on the globe in less than six months. This falls therefore, under the logic of Occam's Razor - which states that when you have removed every impossible answer, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth. Since there is no "vampiric plague" swarming the earth, the logical deduction is that they don't exist. 7. Point of clarification about "vampire" bats: vampire is simply the name we have given them because they do drink blood, same as a flea, mosquito, leech, or spider. Are these creatures vampires? No. They are living creatures, not legendary monsters. They can subsist on blood because of their smaller size and proportionately larger stomach volume. Drinking blood does not make you a vampire anymore than eating raw meat makes you a werewolf, although it might make you a mosquito. 8.The humans who profess to be vampires are victims of an all-encompassing self induced delusion. They are as human as you or I, regardless of their claims, and if they ingest HIV tainted blood they can most certainly contract the disease, esp. if they have any cuts, sores, or lesions in and or around their mouth. It is a very dangerous delusion to be laboring under. Note that there is absolutely no scientific or medical proof that these people derive any benefit at all from the ingestion of blood, and even worse are the so-called "psychic" vampires, because their delusion is one that they cannot substantiate with any concrete evidence at all. 9. There is no "vampire" gene. People are not "born" as vampires. When a woman goes to the hospital for prenatal care there are many tests done on mother and child, even while still in the womb, to check for many things, including genetic anomalies that result in deformities and birth defects. If such a gene existed, in today's world with today's technology it would have been found - we have already completely sequenced the human genome. It would also have to follow Mendel's law of dominant/recessive gene theory. Again, the odds on that many "vampires" all escaping the notice of the medical/scientific community are so low as to be almost nonexistent. The idea that there is a global "vampire community" engaging in controlled breeding to keep the "bloodline pure" is delusional in the extreme. 10. There is no "vampire virus" - as I have already pointed out, HIV is a virus, and look at how fast it has spread - virtually everyone knows someone with the affliction. According to the "vampire websites" there are "thousands" of vampires running around. If that was so then at least one of them has ended up in a hospital for bloodwork when they became pregnant, had a bloodborne infection, was injured in a car wreck, etc, etc, ad nauseum. The anomaly would have been detected and medical science would have isolated it, studied it, applied for research grants on it, published papers on it, and turned it into the talk of the medical and scientific community, as well as making its "discoverers" celebrities and rich beyond their dreams. A virus cannot alter your DNA in such a radical fashion without killing you.

  • Vampires???

    How can i know if the vampires are real?

    Because you asked about "the vampires", I'm going to assume you're asking about people who claim to be vampires, like some of us on Y!A. Honestly it's not easy to figure out if someone really is a vampire or not. 1.You can set up your own definition of what a real vampire would be like, then meet these people and see if they fit your definition. Many people think the only REAL vampire would be one like they're heard about from fictional books, movies or TV shows. That's a pretty lame way to decide if something is real, if you ask me. Why would you assume a source we all know is fictional would have correct information about what a real vampire would be like? 2. You could research all the vampire folklore from all over the world (real folklore, not fictional literature), then see if there are some themes that are fairly consistent. These themes might have a bit of truth in them. Then communicate with and meet some of these self-professed vampires to see if their stories fit with the folklore themes. 3. You could go to some "real vampire" websites and read how they describe what a real vampire is. Don't just look at a few, though, because they don't all agree with each other and some of them are bogus. Read enough to find out what the general consensus is. Use your common sense to decide if these ideas and people sound believable or not. After you've read a whole bunch of posts and articles about real vampires, you might want to meet a few in person to see if they seem believable in person. I've been on vampire forums and met many self-professed vampires in person. At first I thought most of the people claiming to be vampires were probably delusional, but the more I got to know them, the more I believed them. Awakening stories are some of the best evidence for this not being all imaginary, IMO. Young people come onto a forum wondering WTF is wrong with them. They list a bunch of weird experiences and symptoms. They DON"T want to think they're a vampire. What they're going thorugh is agonizing. They feel like they must be going crazy. They don't say they think it would be cool to be a vampire or that they want to be turned into one. 4. When you meet self-professed vampires in person, use common sense and pay attention to what they say and how they act. Can you tell when someone is lying? Can you tell if someone is probably sane or probably crazy? Ask questions to get them to talk about themselves and their beliefs. Don't just believe everythng they say, but don't act like you think they're lying either. Study them as they talk. Decide later if you think they're believable or not. 5. If you're sensitive to subtle energy, like a psychic might be, notice how you feel around any self-professed vampire. Do you get a weird sensation on your skin when you're near them? (This can be a sign of a real vampire.) Do you feel oddly drawn to them or get a creepy feeling from being around them? (These can also be signs of real vampires.) After talking with a self-professed psychic vampire, do you feel tired, headachy or dizzy? These are signs of having had some of your energy drained by a psychic vampire. If you have any of these physical sensations and your intuition tells you this was a real vampire, he or she is probably a real living vampire.

  • Wat is a vampire??????

    wats a vampire u guys?

    Vampires are mythological or folkloric beings who subsist by feeding on the life essence (generally in the form of blood) of living creatures. Although typically described as undead, a vampire could be a living person. In folkloric tales, undead vampires often visited loved ones and caused mischief or deaths in the neighbourhoods they inhabited when they were alive. They wore shrouds and were often described as bloated and of ruddy or dark countenance, markedly different from today's gaunt, pale vampire which dates from the early Nineteenth Century. Although vampiric entities have been recorded in most cultures, the term vampire was not popularised until the early 18th century, after an influx of vampire superstition into Western Europe from areas where vampire legends were frequent, such as the Balkans and Eastern Europe, although local variants were also known by different names, such as vampir (вампир) in Serbia, vrykolakas in Greece and strigoi in Romania. This increased level of vampire superstition in Europe led to mass hysteria and in some cases resulted in corpses actually being staked and people being accused of vampirism. According to some sources, living vampires could be sorcerers or witches (such as some types of strigoi), or the result of a demonic contract (such as the Penanggalen and Loogaroo). In modern times, however, the vampire is generally held to be a fictitious entity, although belief in similar vampiric creatures such as the chupacabra still persists in some cultures. Early folkloric belief in vampires has been ascribed to the ignorance of the body's process of decomposition after death and how people in pre-industrial societies tried to rationalise this, creating the figure of the vampire to explain the mysteries of death. Porphyria was also linked with legends of vampirism in the 20th century and received much media exposure, but this link has since been largely discredited. The charismatic and sophisticated vampire of modern fiction was born in 1819 with the publication of The Vampyre by John Polidori; the story was highly successful and arguably the most influential vampire work of the early 19th century. However, it is Bram Stoker's 1897 novel Dracula that is remembered as the quintessential vampire novel and provided the basis of the modern vampire legend. The success of this book spawned a distinctive vampire genre, still popular in the 21st century, with books, films, and television shows. The vampire has since become a dominant figure in the horror genre.

  • .....Vampires?

    Do you believe Vampires are real?

    Vampires are not real. The legend of vampires started out 100's of years ago. The scientific theory of vampires or werewolves come from the theory of getting bitten by a rabies infected wolf or a variety of bat that draws blood from animals. Just like a rabies infected dog , when it bites a human, can induce dog like symptoms in a person (such as fear of water, barking like a dog, and on four feet, seemingly more physical power, etc., ) in the olden ages, some of these people who were bitten by such infected bats or wolves got symptons that resembles the animal or mammals behavior, and they bit everyone they came across, and finally then they died a horrible death. Some infected people lived longer than others, depending on their body conditions and immune levels. People feared that this was some evil force and this turned out to become a myth. There are no vampires. However there are cults which have people who believe in vampire myths and become part of this cult where they drink animal/human blood. They're not vampires. They're just regular people gone out of their minds.

  • Vampire Legends?

    Which culture has the best vampire legend?

    An interest in Vampire Legends, TL1? The two definitive "nonfiction" books on Vampires were written by the same author, Dr. Montague Summers. Titles are "The Vampire, his Kith and Kin" and "The Vampire in Europe". While some historians dispute some of Summers' "facts", all other "nonfiction" books on the vampire mythos refer to and quote Summers' books. Believe it or not, vampire legends vary widely across the world. Yet every culture has it's own version of a vampire. I don't prefer one culture's mythos over another but I do have my favorite nuances. 1. In the majority of "Russian" cultures, vampires drink the blood of the people that they loved in life. This is also the mythos that most often find the legend that vampires can't come out when the sun is up. 2. The French believed that the best way to kill a vampire was to drive a stake through it's heart, then remove it's heart and burn it, then cut off it's head and smear both sides of the stump with garlic and bury them separately. Then if the vampire should return to life after all that, the garlic would give it indigestion. 3. My favorite nuance: In one of the Greek islands, the people would not (and maybe still won't) answer their door at night unless the person calls out their name 3 times. This culture believes that if a vampire knocks at your door and calls out your name and you answer it, the vampire can come for you whenever and where ever it wants. It could be high noon, at the Vatican and you could be surrounded by the Pope and all the cardinals, the vampire could still get you. This culture also figures that two vampires might band together so they could call your name out twice (the vampire seems to be restricted to being able to only call out your name once) and then "share" you. But these people figure that no human is enough of a "meal" to be shared by three vampires ergo they won't answer the door after dark unless their name is called out three times. Another interesting aspect of the various cultures mythos is the difference in ways to kill a vampire. While all agree that a stake to the heart will kill a vampire, they disagree on what kind of wood should be used or how many times you are allowed to strike the stake. Some cultures believe that you can kill a vampire by burning the body however if anything escapes the fire the vampire lives on (these cultures believe that besides a bat or wolf or mist, a vampire can also change into an insect or mouse or other things). There is also no "traditional" or most widely accepted set of vampire legends. At least before Bram Stoker wrote "Dracula" (which was initially also performed as a play). Hollywood adapted Stoker's book as it's "bible" on vampires. However outside of a few movies, most producers didn't read the book and realize that Stoker's vampire could come out during the day - he just has reduced powers. I could go on "ad nausem" but I'll stop here. I check back on questions I answer so if any one wants further references or info, say so. Also refer to my answers. I think I have answered at least two other vampire questions. Much of the additional info I can give on vampire mythos is already in those answers. Also, in regards to Dungeons and Dragons style vampires, the D&D book editors picked and chose from various mythos in "styling" their version of vampire. It's not a completely correct version of any culture's vampire. I played D&D in it's various editions. addition: Go Suzie. Thank God!! Someone else writes as long of answers as I do.

  • How do i become a vampire?

    blood suckers vampire

    Creating vampires: "The causes of vampiric generation were many and varied in original folklore. In Slavic and Chinese traditions, any corpse that was jumped over by an animal, particularly a dog or a cat, was feared to become one of the undead. A body with a wound that had not been treated with boiling water was also at risk. In Russian folklore, vampires were said to have once been witches or people who had rebelled against the Russian Orthodox Church while they were alive. Cultural practices often arose that were intended to prevent a recently deceased loved one from turning into an undead revenant. Burying a corpse upside-down was widespread, as was placing earthly objects, such as scythes or sickles, near the grave to satisfy any demons entering the body or to appease the dead so that it would not wish to arise from its coffin. This method resembles the Ancient Greek practice of placing an obolus in the corpse's mouth to pay the toll to cross the River Styx in the underworld; it has been argued that instead, the coin was intended to ward off any evil spirits from entering the body, and this may have influenced later vampire folklore. This tradition persisted in modern Greek folklore about the vrykolakas, in which a wax cross and piece of pottery with the inscription "Jesus Christ conquers" were placed on the corpse to prevent the body from becoming a vampire. Other methods commonly practised in Europe included severing the tendons at the knees or placing poppy seeds, millet, or sand on the ground at the grave site of a presumed vampire; this was intended to keep the vampire occupied all night by counting the fallen grains indicating an association of vampires with arithmomania. Similar Chinese narratives state that if a vampire-like being came across a sack of rice, it would have to count every grain; this is a theme encountered in myths from the Indian subcontinent, as well as in South American tales of witches and other sorts of evil or mischievous spirits or beings. In Albanian folklore, the dhampir is the son of the karkanxholl or the lugat. If the karkanxholl sleeps with his wife, and she is impregnated with a child, the offspring is called dhampir and has the unique ability to discern the karkanxholl; from this derives the expression the dhampir knows the lugat. The lugat cannot be seen, he can only be killed by the dhampir, who himself is usually the son of a lugat. In different regions, animals can be revenants as lugats; also, living people during their sleep. Dhampiraj is also an Albanian surname."

  • Facts about vampires?

    i know theyre not real but im writing a book and i need know facts about vampires

    1.) Fact: Vampires live on blood. In all the different stories, legends, and folklore surrounding vampires, this is universally a common trait of all vampires – they feed on blood. There is some question on whether or not it has to be human blood, some stories say it can be animal blood. 2.) Fact: Vampires take on a darker color when they drink blood. Some people describe it as a warm flush. 3.) Fact: Vampires do have weaknesses. They are not invincible. Legends and folklore cite many different possibilities as to what those weaknesses are however not all stories agree with what actually works. Some of the more common theories cited in legends include garlic, crosses, beheading, sunlight, stake through the heart, holy water, fire, and of course werewolves. 4.) Fact: Not all vampires have fangs. Some of the earliest stories of vampires describe creatures that do not have the fangs that are so commonly depicted in vampires today. 5.) Fact: Humans are not the only vampires. There are a few vampiric animals that exist including some birds, bats, and fish. 6.) Fact: Humans have believed in vampires for centuries. In the Middle Ages especially, the belief in vampires was at a near panic level. Humans believed that the plague could be spread by vampires, so they would shove bricks into the mouths of dead corpses believed to be vampires. One such corpse was discovered in 2009 in Venice. 7.) Fact: Dracula is a famous vampire novel, not a real person or vampire. But the novel was based on a real person – Vlad the Imapaler. 8.) Fact: In some cultures the Devil and the vampire are virtually interchangeable beings. Although it is worth mentioning that this is only some cultures. Many western cultures have a much more positive view of the vampire. 9.) Fact: A number of vampires that have banded together can be called a pack, a coven, or a clan. 10.) Fact: The question of whether or not vampires are real is universally debatable, but the fact is that there are a number of self-professed vampires, humans that truly claim to be vampires.

  • More vampires.........................

    hey guys,, tell me more about vampires!!!!!

    Well, I will give you these two recycled posts that I use! =) (It becomes very cumbersome to type all of this out over, and over...) --------------------------------------... In order to fully be a real vampire, you must have the genetics for it. It is a very rare thing to since Lilith's (Just Google "Adam and Lilith") children have cross-bred so much, however some do have it. It's like in those hereditary charts that you learn in high school. You have V for non-vampire and v for vampire. There are for outcomes: VV Vv vV vv The only one with which one shall be a real vampire is through the possession of the "vv" coding. Of course, it's a bit more complicated than that, but that's the basic concept, anyway. In any event, I don't know of any vampires who would Turn you --aside from sheer cynical amusment--, as, assuming that it is possible for a human to become a vampire, the human would supposedly have the Hunger, but would not have many, if any, of the perks. So I've heard. I cannot personally attest to this fact, however I felt that I should inform you of it, regardless. Assuming that it is, indeed, true who do you know that would be able to have that on their concious for the rest of their lives? To make another being dependant upon some external source? Not many that I know of. In any event, vampires are real, but not as you would "know" them to be. You, my friend, have been watching too many vampire-related shows. If, howsoever, you or any other who views this question, would like to delve deeper into the world of vampirism, if I may do so, I would like to share the following sites with you: First off, our site: http://www.awakeanddrink.webs.com <---It is a self-help website for vampires. It is slowly coming along. One can only write code so fast, you know. http://www.sanguinarius.org <---By far one of the best out there. http://www.vampirewebsite.net <---For a Virus-related theory http://www.drinkdeeplyanddream.com <---Good for general-info. There are many more, but I do not feel like putting them down here. Forewarning: If, in your searches, you come across any "vampiric" group that claims to have a seemingly role-play-like caste system, then they are all just a bunch of idiots. Do not believe any such sites. Also, any website making claims of "Classical vampires," "Dhampirs," etc. are false. ~Best of wishes, Zane and Azaria P.S. It would be nice if you would at least visit the previously stated sites before down-voting me. Although, as I'm sure you all know very well, you probably will not do this, and will down-vote me anyway, which is fine. I am simply trying to help people think for themselves. To look at the sites means that there is one less arrogant being on this planet, which brings me great pleasure. To not look at them I could care less for. I have given you what I have and you shall do with it as you will. If 1/20 people views these sites, then I have achieved my goal for the day. --------------------------------------... Well, I will tell you how real vampires look. Here come the downvotes, =). I'll leave links at the bottom for the open-minded, though. -No fangs. -Any color eyes, only with a dark-colored ring around the outside of the eye, as well as a golden ring around the pupil. - Many will describe this as a "lion's mane." -Rather pale. -Photosensitive. -Nails --fingernails/toenails-- grow more quickly. -Hair grows more quickly. -Typically vampires have moderate to dark brown hair. I have never met one with black or blonde. -May be preppy, emo, jock, goth, country, rocker, etc. Any stereotype. -Glassy fingernails, but very hard to break or chip. -Some have sharper canines, some do not. -Sleeping in coffins is only if they are...eccentric. -Elegant walk about them. -Heightened reaction speeds. -Heightened Psi abilities. -Quiet footsteps. -Often appear deep in thought, and/or solemn. -May be anti-social or extremely social. Depends on the personality. -Enjoy the night. -Tend to be very nocturnal. -Some enjoy human company whilst other see humans merely as food. -Only about a third belong to Covens. -All of the ones I know are very knowledgable about history in general. They are not necessarily "history buffs" by any means, but still. -Seem to know everything about other peoples' emotions, yet nobody ever knows much about them even though the people "think" that they do. -May be happy one day, but drained the next day. -They are not undead. -They often keep Donors rather than attacking random people. Vampires do not like STD's either, you know. -Vampires eat human food, although tend to revolve more around fruits & vegetables. -They drink blood, although a cup every 2-3 days is enough. -V
