Reply to "If the first vampire <came> into existence"

Hi, Deepcosmos,

“On Jan 1, 1600, the human population was 536,870,911. If the first vampire came into existence that day and bit one person a month, there would have been two vampires by Feb. 1, 1600. A month later there would have been four, and so on. In just two-and-a-half years the original human population would all have become vampires with nobody left to feed on.”



That "came" is real, not unreal past. You can understand the sentence as follows:

- If it is true that the first vampire came into existence that day and bit one person a month, then there would have been two vampires by Feb. 1, 1600.
