Vampires, a word that is not often used in the human language. Many people have questions about vampires including; What are vampires? Why were the legends created, why? Are vampires a fact or fantasy?
“Vampires are described as many different things. People believe that vampires could be ghosts or revenants, a monster or deformity; it could even be a reanimated corpse that is seeking revenge. Scientists believe that the characteristics of vampires include; pale and marble-like skin that is very cold and they have razor sharp teeth.” (Vampires again, par. 3)
There are many legions about vampires around the world. One of the most famous is by Bram Stroker. He created the novel Dracula in 1897. He was able to “define the image the vampire for generations to come. He was also able to take the raw material from the eyewitnesses and colored it with superstitions of his own imagination” (Vampires Fact or Fiction 11). Many other books are about vampires also. Another popular pick is the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer. The legends that are passed around the world were mainly created for entertainment. The stories told today, also told back in the 1800’s, have changed every time they are told, so no one is really sure whether or not there are vampires. Many believe these stories are fun for telling them or passing them to later generations.
“Vampires could not be true because human bodies can’t process their own food for nutrition, therefore also could not process blood. The human body is not designed to process large amounts of blood for nutrition.” (Vampires Fact or Fiction, par. 1 and 2)
All in all no one can prove if vampires exist or not. With all the legends and stories, scientists need more time and information to really prove whether vampires exist or not. Many people say yes, others say no. For a word that’s not used very often people can’t decide if vampires exist or if they are a figment of people’s imaginations.
