It is said rabies explains the werewolf theory. Porphyria is not like vampirism. The king George 3 of Britain was porphyric, discoloured urine, stomach cramps, mad as a train load of spiders due to chemical imbalance etc-he didn't drink anyone's blood or have adverse reactions to holy water & garlic though

Your Realities are are interesting theories and some are possible explanations. Many would call my book that has explanations for some of these “myths” a book of fairy Tales and Fiction. None the less I call it my Holy Bible.

Love the explanation of The Great Flood as “myth.” Nice try.

Very strange explanations. Most don't really work, but if you like them, it's okay with me.

People rationalized to the best of their knowledge. These days we can explain anything by checking with google, HA. Had heard some of these, but hadn't heard of the unicorn story.
