On the contrary, vampires do exist. Although, I seriously doubt you'd meet one in this age.
They are not currently active on this earth. They rise up in particular generations of men. Then they become dormant for several generations, before
re-emerging once again to walk among us.
They are like the cicadas. If you study the lifecycle of the cicadas, you'll get a good understanding of vampires.
Here is the Bible's description of vampires:
Proverbs|30:11 There is a generation that curseth their father, and doth not bless their mother.
Proverbs|30:12 There is a generation that are pure in their own eyes, and yet is not washed from their filthiness.
Proverbs|30:13 There is a generation, O how lofty are their eyes! and their eyelids are lifted up.
Proverbs|30:14 There is a generation, whose teeth are as swords, and their jaw teeth as knives, to devour the poor from off the earth, and
the needy from among men.
Proverbs|30:15 The horseleach hath two daughters, crying, Give, give. There are three things that are never satisfied, yea, four things
say not, It is enough:
Proverbs|30:16 The grave; and the barren womb; the earth that is not filled with water; and the fire that saith not, It is enough.
So, you can understand some of the main characteristics of vampires. First of all, they arise only at a particular time period in the ages, a
particular "generation". They are born out of the womb of a normal woman, and have regular parents, who are not vampires. They are like a
"recessive gene" that becomes active in a particular generation. Since they are different from their parents, they "curseth their father, and doth
not bless their mother". Yet, because of the vampires special powers, they feel they are "pure" in their own eyes, but yet they are still
"filthy", which they don't acknowledge. They have "lofty eyes" and their "eyelids are lifted up" just like Hollywood depiction. Again, their
"teeth are as swords", and "jaw teeth as knives", which we all identify with the vamps of the movies and comic books. The "horseleach" is
another name for the vampire. Of course, this creature sucks the blood of the horse, the human body is often refered to as a horse, e.g. the spirit
rides the horse of the human fleshy body etc..The vampires are always thirsty, never satisfied, love to dwell near the grave, etc..and female vampires
have "barren wombs", they can't replicate by sex, have no children, and once they emerge they live for one generation only. Except, their
generation can be a long time, by our human standards. They can be killed, etc.., so every now and then men eliminate them from the population. Still,
because of that recessive gene, they pop back up again and again from time to time.
