Why do people not believe in vampires? I mean if we are here there has to be other things out there then just humans. And no vampires don't go online. They can't because they have to stay hidden. So if you have any questions just ask and I will answer.

The term "vampire" applied to two species of central and south American bloodsucking bats until Bram Stoker invented Count Dracula towards the end of the 19th century. 

Vampires in popular fiction are just that, fiction. They do not exist in "real life" and most people would not have heard the word were it not for Hollywood.

People don't believe in vampires because there's no reason for them. There's no evolutionary chain leading to vampires, they are not required for the world to 'work' and there are no other 'vampire-like' creatures. Except, that is, for bats. We know why vampire bats like to suck a bit of blood every now and then, but apart from the Bram Stoker novel, we have no reason at all to believe vampires exist.

So, if you're a vampire, you need to go on television and suck some blood out of somebody. Somebody on Fox News, perhaps, although they may not have any blood to suck.

Failing that, you might as well look for a crossroads and a stake...  :)

100% sure, William? I think most people have never been more than 90% sure of anything. The sun coming up tomorrow? Ok, I'm 95% sure of that.

Vampire comes from Hungarian vampir, perhaps from Turkish uber ‘witch.’

Closest thing I've read to a vampire as they are understood today, are the Keres, the daughters of Nyx.

From Wikipedia

"The black Dooms gnashing their white teeth, grim-eyed, fierce, bloody, terrifying fought over the men who were dying for they were all longing to drink dark blood. As soon as they caught a man who had fallen or one newly wounded, one of them clasped her great claws around him and his soul went down to Hades, to chilly Tartarus. And when they had satisfied their hearts with human blood, they would throw that one behind them and rush back again into the battle and the tumult."

Hence, the reason people don't believe in them is because there are other sources that explain their origin, which is from mythology.

Vampires don't exist, it is the figment of imagination of hollywood movie stalwarts.  You would believe if you have no job to do or don't know how to occupy yourself.
