Most of us currently believe that these creatures don't currently exist - but could they?

Some possibilities on the creation of such beings from a quasi-scientific perspective:

Zombies - Viral outbreak that causes people to turn into zombie-like beings
Werewolves - Hybrid of a wolf and a man by the military intent on creating genetically engineered super soldiers.
Vampires - Someone with sharp incisors and maybe a 'straw-like' vein running through their teeth so they can actually suck blood. Perhaps they need blood since they can only digest or absorb liquids and can't derive nutrition from solid foods.

Also, from a non-scientific perspective:

Since many people already believe in witches, demons, angels, etc - why not vampires, zombies and werewolves? We reject people who believe in these creatures and call them 'crazy' - yet not everything in the material world can be explained yet. These creatures could exist without an explanation just like those who believe in the existence of angels and demons.

Because the possibilities of angels and demons existing is far more great than zombies vampires etc.

SRSLY? If I knew you in real life I'd curb-stomp the shit out of you for making such a fail thread.



Edit: They are fictional characters made for entertainment.NOTHING MORE. people who believe in angels and demons are religious.....who the fuck believes in witches?

I think so...there's always a genetic mishap that happens to us humans and certain creatures...maybe we have just blown it out of proportion though...


for an example:

Vampire: maybe a cannibal who's teeth who happened to be sharper than usual. with an infectionous disease

Werewolf: Maybe somebody(or somepeople) who happened to live in the wood with that hair-growing disorder

zombie: hmmmm...can't really think of an explination

but hey, I could be wrong....there's always something super-natural in this world

Zombies might be able to exist if you remove the reanimated corpse part. You could certainly control human bodies up to a point.

Genetic splicing (made-up term right here) between two species like those would more likely result in horrific failures. Plus a feature of werewolves is transformation, so they would have to be able to mutate their bodies.

Vampire bodies would have to be extremely modified because blood would be lacking several important vitamins and minerals. Plus the process of blood-sucking would take forever. Throw in some albinoism and a "vampire" will be born.

you may as well be asking us to explain the existence of the Flying Spaghetti Monster
then again, there are things out there that can't be explained... yet, but do most likely exist, so... who knows?

for now, it's safer to say that the closest cases to vampires, werewolves, and zombies are greatly exaggerated to appease the interest of those seeking media entertainment

Wait, so human-creatures who can fly with wings and have holy powers in heaven are more likely to exist than humans who start rotting and become zombified because of a viral outbreak?

And human-creatures with evil powers in the 9 pits of the fiery underworld is more likely to exist than people who can fly and suck blood?

I'm not saying any of these creatures exists, but hey - anything goes if you give it enough time.

Lighten up dude. If you think this is the only fail thread around here, then you must be new to crunchyroll forums.

How? Reanimating a dead person's muscles so he can walk around while dead or a person who can suck blood and needs it to stay alive are MUCH more likely then magical beings that live in magical worlds in the sky or in some burning sulfur.

They are mere fictional characters to me, created for the purpose of entertainment. Denying the existence of mythical creatures however, would be less likely considering that more people can grasp that theory. Even in religion most people believe in the existence of these kinds.

I don't care what they are to you, what I'm saying is how is science that can be done less likely then magical beings that would always of had to exist? Through genetic engineering, you could make a person a freakn vampire, and zombies? They have so been done already...

They have been done already? I lol'd there. They do not exist yet. A zombie is an undead person, how could that be possible at the moment? Maybe what you are referring to as zombies are very apathetic humans.


A zombie is an undead person, or, figuratively, a very apathetic person.

And if you look at the history of all these creatures, each one originated from tales or beliefs. Seeing as how mankind inclined to believe most likely mythical creatures than these science fiction characters, I tend to follow that.

A zombie is reanimated flesh, a zombie doesn't have to have a conscious, a will, anything. Just cold, rotting, walking, flesh. And haven't you ever seen Night of the Living Dead! It's totally based on a true story roflroflroflulz. It actually is :O But seriously, reanimating flesh is possible, for how long is subjective, but stimulating nerves with electricity can be easily done, creating a walking corpse, RAWR. Until...it's rotted so bad it can't do anything anymore :(

lol I'm not disregarding any facts here. Yeah that may be possible, though it will take some time. And I don't think Iv'e seen those movies but I do know I've watched "dawn of the dead" and resident evil .

Well they might be possible in terms of appearance and behavior, I mean, you can graft wolf fur to somebody and give them rabies to make a werewolf. Junkies and drug addicts can look/act like zombies. People act and dress up like/believe they are vampires.
To make a "genuine" one requires feats of genetic engineering and biological manipulation far beyond our current technology. "Future Technology" is essentially a blank cheque for whatever kooky theories you want.

Also a key difference between Angel/demons and vampires and zombies is that angels and demons can be "invisible" or "deceitful" which allows for unlimited speculation. Since they are "higher" beings they can possess people or hide or even exist on a different plane of reality (which to me seems like a cop-out)
