Vampire Graves found in Poland
About a week and a half ago, polish archaeologists unearthed vampire graves! Does this discovery provide even more proof in the existence of vampires – that they lived then or are still alive now?
Apparently the graves were in the path of a new roadway that was being built near Gliwice, Poland. The graves were unearthed during its building. There were four graves total believed to date back to the 16th century. The graves in question were quickly and easily identified as vampire graves thanks to the method in which they were buried – at the time of death, skulls had been removed from the body and nestled between the legs of the bodies….this is one of the classic methods known from myths and legends to destroy vampires.
This is not the first, nor will it be the last vampire burial discovered. In Bulgaria just last year for example, archaeologists unearthed a vampire burial ground dating back to the Middle Ages! (Those vampires however had stakes through their hearts – another well-known and classic method of destroying vampires). And there have been various other discoveries – vampire graves keep popping up when archaeologists do not expect them – in Italy, in Connecticut, in the Czech Republic..
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
Interestingly, despite the fact that archaeologists continually discover what they do not argue are unequivocally vampire graves, they still refuse to believe in the possibility that vampire may have existed/might currently exist. Instead they choose to label these finds as an interesting look at the eccentricities and misheld beliefs of times gone by. Most scientists take this default position. What however would happen if scientists took the default standpoint that these bodies that were found are indeed real vampires? What would be the result if they then went about trying to discredit that theory? It’s an interesting question, but one that is unlikely to ever see the real answer, as the few that do try to consider other “unpopular” theories are often labeled as crazy or lunatic.
But what is more dangerous? To discredit the beliefs of generations of people as mere superstition and /or lack of education? Or to look at specific scientific evidence that is presented with an open mind without preconceived beliefs on what is and is not true?
