    Godlike Appeal: Vampirism vs. Witchcraft

    I read an article a little while back that drew parallels between the "modern vamp" and godhood. New vampires are not scary, are not necessarily destroyers of people, may have eternal souls, possess supernatural abilities (mind-reading, seeing the future, etc.), are much stronger (super-hero like), faster, sexier, beautiful, never age, and rarely die.



    Whereas witches and wizards must learn their spells over time, do not have superhuman strength, and will age and die (eventually), the modern vampire can instantly possess all the aforementioned abilities.

     

    Oh, here's another! If you are romantically involved with a "vamp" (I guess the additional "ire" is just too cumbersome to write or say anymore) and they are essentially a god/goddess, is that like saying you now have a personal relationship with a god?
