** {{Let the Right One In}} was written for the same purpose, but aimed at a different audience. It's much more effective: fans discussing the murder of an innocent character focused on how horrible it was for ''the murderous vampire.''

* See The Elder Scrolls Online vampirism for why that wouldn't be so. Besides vampirism is considered an abomination by nearly all faiths, and there are ultimately more religious people than atheists.

* Where to vampires come from? By infecting a human and turning it into a fellow vampire. What do vampires feed on the most? Humans. As a result, vampires would essentially be eating their own children, since humans are needed to create more vampires. Unless raised to become a vampire, any human who has spent his life trying to escape having their blood drained is not going to be in the best state of mind when they're turned into the thing they've been conditioned to fear the most. This may explain why so many good-aligned vampires are so willing to kill off their own kind without hesitation or regret, because they are unable to fit into what they regard are their former tormentors.
* Everyone knows vampires are immortal. The problem with immortality is that it can create complacency. Combined that with traditional vampire powers (super-strength, shapeshifting, flying, whatever), means vampires are going to be a little slow to adopt new ideas or inventions that may not mesh well with the current status quo. Compared to vampires, humans have very short lives (around 80-90 years at healthiest). However, being short-lived and vulnerable means humans are more willing to adapt quickly to the situation. Since their guaranteed deaths mean they have nothing to lose, humans will work harder to bring their inventions and ideas to fruition before they kick the bucket. Since vampires don't need to worry about death, it will be more difficult for them to invent and improvise without
For example, in Mesoamerica, some researchers theorize the main reason why the Aztecs performed human sacrifice was so they can substitute their need for protein with a diet of human flesh, due to the lack of domestic animals larger than the llama or alpaca that could be used to feed a large population of people.

As a result, vampires would essentially be eating their own children, since humans are needed to create more vampires. Since vampires are technically dead, they're unable to raise their own offspring naturally, so like parasites they rely on humans to create more of their kind.

ride on, vampires would still be stuck in Mesoamerica, some researchers theorize the main reason why the Aztecs performed human sacrifice was so they can substitute their need for protein with a diet of human flesh, due to the lack of domestic animals larger than the llama or alpaca that could be used to feed a large population of people.

* Vampire populations will always remain low. This is something found in all predator-prey relationships. The amount of prey will always exceed the amount of predators. If the reverse were to happen, the predators would surely decrease in numbers since there isn't enough prey to feed them. As most media have shown, vampires prey mostly on humans. But in order for vampires to increase their population, there must be an even larger number of humans that will be able to feed them all. This means any rebellions among humans would be utterly disastrous to a vampire, since killing off the rebellion would be the equivalent of torching your crops. And since it takes alot of time to grow a human,

* As we know vampires are blood-suckers. Unfortunately, blood doesn't have too much nutrients. Vampire bats, who subsists exclusively on blood, often drink so much that they're unable to fly properly without peeing it out - same for others like ticks and mosquitos. This means a vampire needs to drink alot of blood to maintain a healthy lifestyle. In addition, such an exclusive diet that only contains bodily liquids means vampires won't be able to spread very far geographically. This is especially true if such areas lack large game, or do not have the kind of environment that can support livestock farmed for blood. Humans on the other hand, are able to thrive in multiple environments, including deserts, arctics and small islands, because our omnivorous diets allow us to subsist on a wide variety of different foods. As a result, the only way a vampire can Vampires, on the other hand, would never be able to reach the same population density as people due
