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

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.

Hi, Gustavo, appreciate yours. Would you let me know following two things;

1) Are you also thinking of 'would have been' as a future of the past?

2) Did you use 'If it is true' to say 'a possible future event', not 'something unreal' (something that is unlikely or impossible)?
