First of all, I would like to state that everything I type below are simply possibilities. If you can disprove me in any way, please do so, because I would like to know if I'm wrong. And if there is anything that I have left out, please, do share. (Also, I'm not crazy.... and I really do not wish to actually TEST this. I'm simply bored and thinking 'what if this happened?')

Okay, getting to the point. Vampires have distinct qualities, right? Fangs, blood lust, pale skin, dark hair, red eyes, only coming out at night, and hating the sun. (Though some of these are disputable based on whose take on vampires you are looking at, but I am simply going to stick with these for now.)

Let's say, a family decides to become completely inbred. This family then forces their children to stay inside and sleep all day, while only coming out at night. The family also only feeds their children blood, eventually allowing the children to bite things in order to draw blood for the purpose of drinking it. When these children grow up, they continue all of these traditions, and the cycle continues for millions of years, creating a sub-human race called vampires....


Fangs:
I'm not entirely sure how the fangs would come about; that's something I'm still pondering.. but doesn't adaptation allow for, over millions of years, animals adapt their physical structure based on what they need to do? So, if an entire string of people have been taught since birth that they are supposed to bite people in order to drink blood to survive, fangs would be of use for that, and possibly, evolution would allow fangs to gradually appear.

Blood Lust: It's like food. We get hungry because food is our energy. Well, in essence, blood lust is the same. If you have been taught since birth that blood is your only food, when you get hungry, you will not crave chiken and ice cream, wou will crave blood. I was asked by my sister if it's possible to live off of blood... so I looked it up. Supposedly, blood is 600 calories per liter, and contains certain nutrients and plenty of water. So, in theory, we could live off blood. If we really WANT to.... I'm not so sure.

Pale Skin:
Staying inside all day would inevitable cause pale skin. No mistake. And the longer the chain of people staying inside is, the paleness will inevitable grow. Just as people closer to the equator have darker skin, because they get more sun. People that are inside while the sun is out, and see NO sun, don't need any pigment whatsoever.

Dark Hair: Light hair is caused by both genetics, and sun exposure. Light hair is also a recessive gene, and will eventually be wiped out. Also, since sun exposure would be absolutely none... then the hair will not ever lighten.

Red Eyes: Being in the dark all the time for millions of years would cause the eyes to grow lighter in order to see in the dark... probably they would only turn a very light blue, but they might possibly turn even red...

Only Coming Out At Night:
Well, this one is simple. If you've been raised to sleep during the day and come out at night, then that's what you'll do.

Hating The Sun: If you have pale skin, you will sunburn easily. If you are used to the dark, then the light hurts your eyes. This is obvious.

All of these things add up to create vampires....


So, what do you think? Possible, or not? Am I weird for even coming up with all of this? Actually, the answer to the question is probably yes.... but I like being weird!!

Hmm, I never thought about that. But then again, I throw up if I eat sushi.... but not everyone does. That's simply because I didn't grow up eating sushi... so maybe if you grew up drinking blood it would be different? Dunno

well it has nothing to do with growing up not drinking blood.... it's because our appendix has become useless during evolution

its is possible.... i like my bio bomb idea better though...
-a man-made deiese that spreads easily
-people expose directly from the bomb will get the diesese
-will hormones foe the need of sensational pleasure(such as bitting and being bitten)
-alters the brain to where you become more sadistic and masochistic
-also changes you genetically where you are pretty much albino... cept the hair
-albinos have red eyes and pale skin
-albinos hate the sun
-speedens your immune system
-speedens healing process
-mutation of the teeth where they become longer and more sharp(wolf or snake DNA)
-maybe snake like eyes... (snake DNA duh)
-will only go out at night(bat, snake, or wolf DNA)

Well, if evolution cause it to become that way, then possibly evolution could in turn change it back!

evolution is normally for the advancement of the species... I do not think it works backwards. but I guess if for some weird reason we couldn't cook our food anymore and had to eat raw meat then maybe.

Lol. Katt, we should sooooo try to make that "bio bomb"! xDDD
Seriously, though, that would be bad if we really did. Though cool... but we'd all die.
Anyways, my natural evolution idea owns your bio bomb idea!!!

(btw, for all the random people reading this, Katt is my friend in real life, so I'm not just being mean )

No you can not, create a vampire race.

there are people who like the taste of blood
there is a disease where people can not be in sun light

every human dies eventually.

you can not be living dead. its impossible. there is no need to disprove.

one way there is if we call the people who sharpen their teeth, and drink blood for fun, but they don't need a stake driven in their heart, and don't have special super human strength.

Scientist already proved that its impossible for a human sized animal to sustain its self on blood. they would need bath tubs full of it.

But it depends on whoms version of vampires you are speaking of. too. But most are far fetched

Which is what I was suggesting. That people would be forced to survive on blood, which would cause the digestive system to allow it, evolving back into what it used to be! Not that anyone would really want to do that...
