You might have a point, Zazu, if that was established in previous stories that Mid-nite and Terrific don't believe in magic/paranormal/supernatural aspects of their fellow JSAers or the villains/situations they've encountered. But, you really haven't. Dr. Mid-nite apparently is a church-goer, Terrific is an atheist. But you never seen them talking to Wonder Woman, Dr. Fate, or whoever about their abilities and origins and say, "Yeaah. Suuure, you are."

Your original statement was:
As much as I love Dr. Mid-nite and Mr. Terrific, I am having a little problem with the two of them dismissing vampires so easily, and immediately look for scientific explanations. They've encountered ghosts, the Spectre, Mordru, Dr. Fate, etc. etc., and yet, they can't believe the murderer is really a vampire.

Whether one believes in God or is an atheist, that doesn't mean that either one of them needs to believe that vampires really exist. And just because they respect their friends/fellow heroes enough to not argue with them about the true nature of their abilities, doesn't mean that they wholeheartedly believe them. I don't have the same belief system as many of my friends, but I don't go around arguing theology with them either. Again, just because they've encountered "ghosts" and powerful allies/enemies doesn't mean that they believe they are the real thing. Why should they have to say "You're not an Amazon! They're just a myth," to Wonder Woman? Let her believe or claim whatever she wants. She's one of the good guys. What harm is there in letting her say she's an Amazon, whether she is or not? I don't go around telling my friends that there is no God and they are wasting their time. My friends don't try to convert me to their religion.
