The scenario that was just described to you are the typical actions of a vampire. Vampires, as we all know, are said to be pale-faced individuals with an extreme desire for human blood. Also, these demons are said to only dwell at night. Any exposure to light can potentially kill them. But in reality, such a demon does not exist. Any logical thinking individual can conclude that without proper evidence, such demons cannot exist. When studying the mathematical and scientific facts about this demon that everyone wants to be real, one is left with no choice but to declare this demon as a non-existing one. “On Jan 1, 1600, the human population was 536,870,911. If the first vampire came into existence that day and bit one person a month, there would have been two vampires by Feb. 1, 1600. A month later there would have been four, and so on. In just two and a half years the original human population would all have become vampires with nobody left to feed on (Goudarzi, Sara).” When dwelling upon mathematical facts like this, one is left with no option but to conclude that vampires are not real. Vampires are said to feed on the blood of humans and other animals (mainly cows). So if this idea is true, vampires would have eventually bitten every human on earth, and in turn “taken over the world”. As we all know, vampires do not rule the world. So it is only logical to conclude that the blood-sucking creature we all WANT to be real, is just a fake in reality. To further establish my point, there are even more pieces of scientific evidence to prove that vampires do not exist. As we all know, vampires cannot be exposed to sunlight. Well, there is scientific information that suggest why this may occur in some people. “There are a variety of illnesses that affect people on a regular basis keeping them indoors at all times – such as forms of Porphyria. (Relatively Interesting)” This scientific information can counteract the idea that only vampires cannot be exposed to sunlight. There are humans, who are actual real humans, that can possess illnesses that prevent them from being able to handle sunlight and other forms of light. Not only are there illnesses that prevent people from being able to handle light exposure, but there are also illnesses that cause people to crave iron-rich foods, such as rarely cooked meat that contains iron-rich blood in it. “Those suffering from Iron-deficiency Porphyria could experience cravings for iron-rich foods – such as meat and blood. (Relatively Interesting)” This fact supports the idea that some of the reported vampire “blood-sucking” incidents may have been a result of iron-deficiency Porphyria. Thusly eliminating the idea that only vampires crave or have a taste for blood. Conditions such as hematodipsia, and hemeralopia exist as well. Hematodipsia is a rare sexual illness that causes people to have an unique desire for blood as a sexual turn on. This illness is one that explains why some humans may prefer a little blood in their diet. But even with this being true, they are not vampires. Hemeralopia, on the other hand, is an illness that can explain why some humans cannot handle light exposure well. Hermeralopia is the inability to see clearly when exposed to light. People with this condition avoid lighted areas as much as possible. So my question now is this are these people vampires?
