Vampires , Where Did It All Start And Why !

Many people have theories for the origins of vampire beliefs that they have offered as an explanation for the superstition, and sometimes mass hysteria, caused by vampires. Everything ranging from premature burial to the early ignorance of the body's decomposition cycle after death has been cited as the cause for the belief in vampires.

 

Many people in the early times were buried alive by mistake and the lucky few were able to dig out and when people saw them up walking around they flat out freaked. Many times the poor unfortunate person would be staked or burned alive because people really believed they had returned from the grave as a vampire ready to prey on the family members left behind.

 

Of course this was before modern medicine and back in those days people were buried with out being embalmed. So if the person was only in a coma and then they got up out of the grave you can see where superstitious people would have thought the person back from the grave was a vampire.

COMPLETE HISTORY ABOUT VAMPIRES

Vampire Secrets

The Oxford English Dictionary says that the word Vampire first appeared in the English language around 1734 though creatures of the Vampire nature can be traced back to the 700 AD Rome area of present day Rome Italy. It is also a historical fact that people in then Serbia and that general area were known to exhume bodies from the grave and drive a stake thru the heart and burn the bodies in the early 1500's over fear that the dead person had become a Vampire and was preying on area villiagers. It is said to be the 1897 Bram Stokers book Dracula that is said to have brought the Vampire into mainstream society. After that there have been many movies made and books written about Vampires.

And who knows what you might find if you were to go walking on a dark New Orleans French Quarter street late at night. You might feel something watching you and then you might hear footsteps behind you following you and then you might not ever hear anything again.You might wish Buffy The Vampire Slayer was there to help you but she's not real either you know.

Did you know that in 1960 a man was found in a Hospital bed in Miami  early one morning with two puncture wounds to his neck and no blood in his body. No one has ever explained what happened to the man or how it happened. It was at the old city hospital where this is said to have happened and two nuns reported screams from the room and when they entered the room a dark shape that looked simular to a man jumped out the third story window and ran or flew away. And if you check around you will find many more strange and unusual stories of this type that can not be explained.
