Ever wondered if vampires really exist ? well maybe they do.
there are statues of vampires in an archaeological park in san augustin columbia. the same culture knew about caesarians.
most cultures have depcitons of demons which are shown to have a human like appearance wiht big fangs. e.g. in japan they are called 'oni' and you
can see masks made of them; masks are also made of these 'demons' in sri lanka, bali, and other asian countries. Depictions of them can be seen in
ritual dances in bhutan and in cultural festivals in india and on statues. In thailand fanged demons stand guard outside temples. fanged creatures
adorn the walls and doors of temples in bhutan.
In europe and the meditteranean we have our own vampire legends and stories. they are commonly shown having slightly bluish skin; belonging to the
aristocracy; and having fangs but humanoid.
Interestingly 'gods' and demons of many different cultures are shown as having blue or other coloured skin.
In Sth america and central america, they used to modify and sharpen their teeth and insert fang dentures - particularly amongst the nobility. We do
a similar thing at halloween when we dress up as vampires.
In Africa and asia, teeth modification by sharpening them into points is common amongst tribal peoples.
In Sth and Central america human sacrifice to the gods or demons was practiced in history. victims had their hearts ripped out and throats cut and
were left in wells or on mountains for the 'gods' to collect.
Members of the nobility self mutilated with stingray spears to draw blood to call the 'gods' from the underworld or xibalba. many pyramids in
mexico have tunnels and caves or cavities running underneath them. As do the egyptian pyramids (see 'beneath the pyramids - book).
are there any bodies?
Yes - there is the so called chupacubras phenomonen in sth america where carcasses of animals are found sucked free of blood and wiht double or single
puncture marks in them - apparantly made by something with fangs.
In cattle mutilation cases across the usa and worldwide, carcasses are exanguinated or sucked free of blood.
other stories of a creature killing in the manner of a vampire occur throughout history in england - w herds of sheep etc and elsewhere in europe.
Modern sightings also occur:
a woman in colorado was recently in the news after she backed her car into a ditch claiming to have seen a vampire in the middle of the road.
In afghanistan the us soldiers heard tales of vampires from scared locals - also made the news.
In malawi/africa - there was a recent bout of hysteria about vampires attacking villages when the red cross was in town; and the govt was asked to do
something about it.
