I was an Anne Rice fan back in the early nineties also (when I was hardly into my 20s) and yeah I liked vampires then also. The sense of alienation that Vampire stories portrayed seemed to mirror my own life in ways that only a teenager crossing into adulthood could experience. To live forever and have cool powers was an awesome prospect and all that lace and...
..Oh for God's sake!! This is ATS not a gloomy doomy goth hang out and act like an idiot site. Vampires ARE NOT REAL! Grow up people even Anne Rice grew up and now some of her "non Vampire" books are WAAAYY better. If you think you're a vampire I'll give you this much- you definitely are a parasite. No wait, you're a troll. Go find a bridge.
Vampires..What a load of crap. I'd like to knock the porcelein fangs out of the mouths of those dumb@$$ posers. You come here to this site and make us look even worse than we already look. Bad enough we got people here who think they're aliens but VAMPIRES? Dear God, not here please!
Oh well Aliens are cooler anyway and I believe in them.

sure i've heard of rumours. but not universal all over the world rumours about the same thing with no means of modern communication.

i've studied vampires quite a bit. I wouldnt say for sure without a doubt i know that they're real but i will say that its very probable. humans require vitamin D from the sunlight and require more nutrients than blood provides. real vampires are not physically human. they are something else that is still not understood. and while i can certainly see a mental condition that causes an obsession with blood...vampires are not obsessed with blood any more than im obsessed with peanut butter sandwiches. its simply food to them. and regarding the bite...being bitten by a vampire will not cause a person to become one. thats a myth.

so, you dont believe in vampires because thats just silly, but aliens are cooler, so you believe in them? thats some interesting logic you have there


and with people who publicly claim to be vampires, i think they're full of BS as well. because with the research i've done, i've learned that the one thing the real vampires want is secrecy. and they do not wish to be known about by the human race. So kicking the porcelain fangs out of the mouth of a poser is something that i would like to do myself.

There are themes which seem to crop up as template concepts through humanities history, trying to find out why is always worthwhile.

Using the 'go with what you know' I will say that there are psychological archetypes that are found all over the world, it is human, not specific to one group of people.

They often say symbols we find world wide are because of similar thought patterns and the way we imagine things, and thus come out with similar ideas. Like dragons for example, they are world wide, but they all look different!

If one person travel to another country though and comes back with story of a rumour from the locals, then yes it can spread a myth!

Exactly like the dragons on Komodo island! And I am sure seeing crocodiles/elephants/gorillas for the first time would be a HORRIFYING story to come back with!

I just dont believe you can get ALL the nutrients you need from blood, surely that would take dozens of litres a night. Blood just transport nutrients to the areas that need them.

Bank of America is among the companies being bailed by U.S. taxpayers out while having subsidiaries where they can avoid paying U.S. taxes.

www.washingtonpost.com...

Most of America's largest publicly traded corporations -- including several that are receiving billions of dollars from U.S. taxpayers to finance their recovery -- have set up offshore operations that could help them avoid paying U.S. taxes on their profits.

American International Group, Bank of America, Citigroup and Morgan Stanley are among the companies that are getting bailed out by U.S. taxpayers while having subsidiaries in locations where they can avoid paying U.S. taxes, according to the Government Accountability Office.

Of the 100 largest public companies, 83 do business in tax-haven hotspots like the Cayman Islands, Bermuda and the British Virgin Islands, where they can move their income into tax-free accounts.

It is all legal, but it could come to an end, given the dire condition of the U.S. economy and President-elect Barack Obama's campaign pledge to close this popular business tax loophole. The Treasury estimates that it loses $100 billion a year in tax revenue as a result of companies shipping their income off shore, and congressional leaders are vowing to introduce legislation forcing big companies to pay full freight.

The GAO did not independently review company transactions to see if the companies purposely created tax-haven businesses to avoid U.S. taxes. But it said that historically, offshore subsidiaries are used for reducing tax costs and shielding transactions from public view.

Several of the companies are household names, including Pepsi, Exxon, Dell and Dow Chemical. In the list of 100 companies that GAO studied were 63 with major federal contracts, including Caterpillar, BearingPoint, Boeing, Merck & Co. and Kraft Foods.



Read my location........America is truely run by "Corporate America" and if people don't wake up and rebel we are all going to become slaves of the NWO.



Live long & prosper

hm, vampires never existed? then why are there stories about these creatures from all over the world for many many many years? where did the legends come from? and without the availability of modern communication technology these people all over the world had stories of the same type of creature, never having talked to each other. im sorry, im just not naive enough to think that i know everything and that i know which creatures exist and which dont. do i think that vampires exist? im not sure, as i've never met one. but im not going to immediately discount their existence based on a lack of physical proof. there are many things that cant be physically proven and there are many things that exist even though you cant see them.


Name something that can't be physically proven but that exists anyway. Please. Even "weird" concepts such as dark matter are "visible" due to the observation of their interaction with the stuff around them.

There are vampires all over the world for the simple reason that pretty much every human culture has a big fear of A) being eaten, and B) waking up dead.

So it's pretty easy to come up with a creature that comes in the night and steals your life away - and when you're part of a culture that believes blood is the source of life, you're going to come up with an evil night-thing that sucks your blood.

And boom, vampire. This was probably helped by such pleasant customers as bedbugs, which not only carve open your skin to suck up some blood, but hten poop blood pellets all in your bedding that get inundated with sweat and turn into bloody smears on hte body. I doubt many people stayed up at night waiting to see insects take a chunk of skin out of them.

Thats a perfect way of putting it, what I mean by archetypes. Universal fears that are condition of humanity everywhere.
Fear of the Unknown > Fear of Darkness > Fear of Night +
Fear of being killed/eaten > fear of being attacked by a monster (what else would eat people?)
= Vampire. It embodies the fear of darkness + unknown + being killed nightmarishly. Plus if you do add in the turning into a vampire, losing your humanity!

Aliens seem more plausible. And I was actually referring to a nut who my sister E-dated in the early days of the internet- BBS. At any rate, it was a bad attempt at humor and I apologize if my "logic" in any way confounds you. I was talking about people who think they're vampires.

Or maybe vampires and aliens are the same...

note: in all seriousness, I do believe that non corporeal parasitic entities do indeed exist but the romantic sparkly bisexual vampires of literature are simply BS metaphors for an all too human sense of alientation.

Apart from whether the vampires who are in the garments of human flesh does really exist in this real world or it is just another incredulous creatures that is all in your head, the stories of vampires are always swell and best thing since sliced bread for me, especially when it comes to anne rice's and meyer's.
In my opinion, the vampires story is just like fairies, phantoms or aliens folk tales which cannot be proved for its truism by the most logical reason, which it is also completely outside the realm of scientific provable data. We may heard the stories from the predecessors. And it is like any other myths which are getting reinforced and ingrained by keep being told from generation to generation. Till at the end of the day, it just remains as a fantastic cock-and-bull story and beyond belief. Since I have never heard people did an acid test to pinpoint the fact.

The people involved with black magic , for instance in voodoo and palo mayombe, they have mentioned that the ones really going to the dark side can become vampires because they consider it the best source of energy in this physical world. It is usually kept very secret because they don't want to reveal their true powers to other witches or priests. My family in the Caribbean were kind of involved in something like this and one of the female vampires that I met died because her legs "dried up" when she decided to cast a spell to a most powerful witch. She cried every night and not even her son wanted to take care of her. My grandmother, who was very christian, used to send me with food and I was not allowed to turn my back on her.

My .02 cents....maybe they are real. I am making this comment because the people in my neighborhood used to warn us all the time when a "vampire" was in town. Then the stories about the chupacabras started to appear so everything got distorted.

Also, there is a high possibility too that human vampires do exist if there is somekind of virus or parasite involved.

Of course. All of you that think vampires don't and can't exist are right. Especially since you only have science to back your theories up. We all know it must be true, even when science is often proven wrong. But sure I'll be on your side in saying most creations are fake such as vampires. And I believe the condition vampirism is false. Yet that is only my opinion/theory.

I don't know if Vampires exist or not? But try thinking about it this way; On this planet we have Deer, Geese, Bears, Cats, Wolves, Dogs, Lizards, Birds and many other types of animals and reptiles to only mention a few. Yet each of these many types of creatures has more then one species within it.
So here is the question? Can you be so sure that humanity is only one species and not many? Including vampires, werewolves, etc, etc.

something to think about.

You are a normal human being. you will never get the proof of ANYTHING before its to late. Neither of government economy situation,war situation,technology,history,science,ghosts and other paranormal info. B

because you simple dont have what it takes when it comes to withholding info about these things. We high up in the government will always hide stuff like those for the "ordinary" man,if it got out we would have anarchi and worse.

You will very soon Experience something you could never imagine.
So you every question will be answered,dont worry

Finally, I wonderd when someone else would address this ^>^

I made a thread about the same thing a year or so back and was met with boo's and hisses.

Vampires have no buisness in cryptozoology, none what so ever.

Years back, you should of seen all the threads on lycans and vampires, it was so irritating to get on and try and read some legit cryptid info, and the whole page is practically " how can I become a vampire?" "Is it possible to turn yourself into a werewolf?"

Now you see, im fine with this. IF THERES ONE SINGLE THREAD FOR THEM/
I particularly like browsing through the vampire encounters thread from time to time to read some of the stories on there. ( all though most of the pages are flame wars)

Mod's seriously need to add a sub forum for things like that, possibly for bigfoot/nessie/chupa as well as a possible " Encounters sub forum" one I can gurantee would help muchly and keep the forum in order better.
