Archaeologist find Venetian Vampire!

Can you believe it? Well, apparently back during the plague in Venise, they thought it was spread by female vampires. So, when a grave digger found one they thought was a vampire, they'd put a brick in the mouth to keep her from feeding on the dead around her until she was strong enough rise and feed on the living. strange what people believe! http://eternallycool.net/2009/03/archaeologists-find-venetian-vampire/

I believe there are vampires... maybe not as they are depicted in films and books... some of that is imagination, but I certainly don't rule out the possibility of vampires and demons being present in the Universe. Archaeologists are not always right, but they're not always wrong either, so I see no reason not to believe what they say is true, although the ancients they're talking about could have had false or way-out beliefs. Who knows? Brightest Blessings my friend.

Well, there's the other side to that - if you remember, Dracula had to share blood, the fact that he drank it didn't make them a vampire, it was the sharing of blood - the once bitten is something that came about because the movies were to squimish to show that Dracula shared blood with the one he was turning.

it's amazing to see that people go to such lengths to explain something. we all need to get an explanation of some sort--of any sort--because we mostly fear the unknown. on one hand, we see the creativity and the vast imagination of humankind. on the other hand, it would seem desperate to explain something with just about anything that would 'seem' to fit the outcome that we see.
