Is witch craft and demons/vampires real or are they all just myths/made up stores?

some people say that it is real and other people are saying that it is not real and I am just starting to get more curios that it could real

There are people who are currently practicing Witches, though in general it's not anything like what is portrayed in popular movies/fiction - no turning people to toads, or shooting fireballs, etc... You can get more info here - http://hagstone.blogspot.com/p/witchcraft.html

"Demons", or other entities... may exist, though again it's not anything like the movies. Personally I believe that there are other entities in the world which are mostly benign, that people tend to assume are "evil" or malicious in some way, but for the most part have better things to do with themselves and would rather just be left alone.

I think that Vampire lore was probably originally based on some sort of real phenomenon, but whatever it was had nothing to do with the "Hollywood" versions we have today.

They can only hurt you if you believe in them. There are nasty and dangerous people, but there are no witches and demons and vampires. That is not to say that believers in Wiccan are not real. That is a belief system.

Except that by definition all Wiccans are Witches, as first degree initiation is as Priestess and Witch. ;)

Plus there are other Witchcraft traditions out there, other than Wicca. And for the most part, they are neither nasty or dangerous (at least no more so than anyone else).

I did not say that witches are not real... but witchcraft is not, in the sense that it only affects those that believe. It is a belief system, not reality.

Sephira, not all Wiccans are Witches actually. And you can be a witch without being Wiccan.

They are not real "witches" it's not like the movies. They are normal people that like to burn candles and try to tap into another world (that doesn't exist) ...

As for vampires, there are cults that dress up and act like vampires. They are fully convinced that they are part vampire and some even drink blood or think they can feed off human energies. But they are just doing some very messed up role playing. They are not real or immortal. They need professional help.

bamcintyre: Witchcraft is not a belief system, and while "belief" in it makes it stronger, it can definitely affect those who do not believe as well, even if they don't recognize it as such.

eevvee: despite what many NeoPagan authors might say, from a traditional standpoint, Wicca is a "witchcult". It's very difficult to be a member of a witchcult, and not be a witch. There are those who have created practices that are based on the outer-court (non-oathbound) parts of Wicca, and who have chosen to leave the witchcraft parts out of it - which is fine. The key issue is that by making those changes though, what they are practicing is no longer Wicca (despite their continued/incorrect usage of the title).

Witches tap into quite a few things, a large bit from this plane of existence and occasionally from others (if one believes in such). Magic at it's most basic is manifesting a desired goal through force of will. People do that all the time, it's not all that difficult, it's just that those who practice witchcraft do it a different way.

Myths/made up stories, however some people practice healing by using herbs in a stew (similar to a potion) and it has shown great results.

Depends on what religion you are referring to. Demons are related to Christianity as it's believed they were once angles but went against God and are now fallen angles (commonly known as demons) along with Lucifer who kinda leaded them (commonly known as satan or the devil). Witch craft also links to Christianity as it is classified as demonic and powers that witches (and similar people) hold are believed to come from satan. I don't think any religion believes in vampires but they are also classed as demonic.
As a Christian I believe it's best to stay away from this stuff. I used to be into vampires werewolf etc. before I really became a Christian and it put me on edge just like satan wants.
Hope this helped.

You're kidding right? Fantasies you agree with are real? But others are not? I guess you have physical, observable proof of this?

I agree that there is a community of "witches" or Wiccans. I have no argument with them. But if you tell me you're gonna stick a pin in a doll and make me sick, you gotta 'nother think coming.

Lol I agree bam.

Vampires are just as real as demons... absolutely. Now witches are a valid community, and won't look kindly on how you represent them. Wiccans are secular humanists with naturalist leanings. Don't disrespect them by linking them with Satanists, Demonists, and Catholics.. All of those believe in fantasies.

Vampires are fake, except the ones pretending to be but they're not the "undead". The rest is very real.

Witchcraft is very real, though its not always evil.
Demons, i personally believe are real, but only as powerful as we let them be.
Vampires are real as well, but not like how they are in the books. There is an actual Vampire subculture.

"Vampire lifestyle is a term for a contemporary subculture of people, largely within the Goth subculture, who consume the blood of others as a pastime; drawing from the rich recent history of popular culture related to cult symbolism, horror films, the fiction of Anne Rice, and the styles of Victorian England. Active vampirism within the vampire subculture includes both blood-related vampirism, commonly referred to as sanguine vampirism, and psychic vampirism, or supposed feeding from pranic energy."

There are people who have lifestyles similar to and call themselves "witches" and "vampires" but they're not like what you see in the movies. To me, it just looks like some very confused people that are taking role-playing a little too far.

I'll agree with the Vampire thing being an out of control RP adventure, but witchcraft is something entirely different. I mean yeah, there are those who definitely playing at something, or who are just trying to be cool, but there are also those who have serious practices, that really aren't that far out there into "woo woo" land. XD

It's essentially the same.
Some people just take it further than others, just like the "vampires"

Demons are real. Don't obsess about them or you give them control over you, don't just act like they don't exist or they can have power over you as well. Witchcraft is when people get power from Satan or demons, and that's evil. Vampires ain't real, girl.

technically, NO. Although Vlad the Impaler actually did drink the blood of his enemies after they were executed, but that's cannibalism, not vampirism.... In other words anything that has to do with the occult is generally Sh**

Wait... scratch that... there are some religeons, like Wicca, where practitioners refer to themselves as witches-but i'm not a follower of any of those.

None of it is real. Witchcraft, fake. Demons, fake. Vampires, fake. All myths to spice up a story or frighten little children.

Witches are real... as is witchcraft though it bears little resemblance to what most people have been fed by the church and Hollywood. "Demons" are also real though again they bear little resemblance to what most people have been brought to believe about them. They *can* be dangerous if dealt with improperly but most are benign.unless you mess with them. Vampires... well I agree with Saphira that there may be some connection to some real phenomenon as well but there are also a different kind of "vampire" that some people/religions believe in. These are Psychic or Spiritual Vampires. People who can either wittingly or unwittingly steal or "suck" various kinds of energy from others. People who encounter these kinds of vampires can find themselves always becoming tired, depressed or otherwise mentally distressed when in their presence. Powerful psychic vampires are said to actually be able to make people ill or lose the will or strength to live .. almost literally 'sucking the life" out of people. Since life and blood are closely associated with each other this may be the basis of the belief (or not) lol just my thoughts on it.

Bible example: " Then Jesus spoke to the demon within the man and said, "Come out, you evil spirit." It gave a terrible scream, shrieking, " What are you going to do to me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? For God,s sake
don't torture me! ". What is your name?" Jesus asked, and the demon replied, " Legion, for there are many of us here within this man. Then the demons begged him again and again not to send them to some distsnt land.
Now as it happened there was a huge herd of hogs rooting around on the hill above the lake. Send us into those hogs, the demons begged. And Jesus gave them permission. Then the evil spirits came out of the man and entered into the entire herd plunged down the steep hillside into the lake and drowned." ( Mark 5:7-13) Living Bible. This is just one example, of what demons can do. Demons are on this earth, just as they were in Jesus time. " This Dragon Lost the battle and was forced from heaven. This great Dragon--the ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, the one deceiving the whole world---was thrown down onto the earth with all his army." ( Revelation 12:8-9) Living Bible So, you will have to choose for your self, as to what to believe. Just as you said in your question, some believe one way others another. Remember: "So what about these wise men, these scholars, these brilliant debaters of this world's great affairs?? God had made them all look foolish, and shown their wisdom to be useless nonsense." ( 1 Corinthians 1:21) Living Bible. Answer for the person that asked the question. If you see what that scripture says: the Devil is deceiving the whole world. Look around every where in the world big problems.
