Is the Government hiding the truth about mermaids?

Aug 22 2012

This article falls a little outside of our normal scope for Battle of the Bilge articles but it does involve a government cover-up that goes as far as creating a fake web page that gives the appearance that the website was seized by the Department of Justice and the Department of Homeland Security Investigations.

A recent TV show, dressed up as a documentary, about mermaids caused quite a stir.  The show claims to provide evidence of the existence of mermaids and a subsequent government cover-up. All footage of these so-called mermaids depicts scary Computer Generated Images (CGI) of thin blue people with tails.  Appropriately, the show debuted at the end of Animal Planet’s Monster Week. 

Mermaids: The Body Found

As much as I loved The Little Mermaid as a child, it is my sad duty to inform everyone that Ariel does not exist.

Promotion of the Show

The promotional information on the show is misleading.  The carefully crafted press release implies that all of the information presented is fact when it is not.  If your carefully review their word choice you will notice the words “story”, “film” and “evolutionary possibility”.

A description of Mermaids: The Body Found on the Animal Planet website.

Mermaids: The Body Found makes a strong case for the existence of the mermaid, a creature with a surprisingly human evolutionary history, whose ancestral branch splits off from a shared human root. The film is science fiction, using science as a springboard into imagination and centering the story on the following real-world events:

•In the early 1990s, the US Navy began a series of covert sonar tests, which were linked to mass die-offs of whales, which washed up on beaches throughout the world. For years, the Navy denied they were responsible for these beachings.

•In 1997, scientists at the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) recorded a mysterious sound (called “The Bloop”) in the deep Pacific, which was thought to be organic in nature. It has never been identified.

These are facts.

Mermaids: The Body Found is a story that imagines how these real-world phenomena may be related. In this story, startling amateur video and photographic evidence, as well as additional audio recordings, suggests whales weren’t the only creatures affected by the Navy’s sonar. The film follows the two scientists who tracked the whale beachings for years and delivers first-hand, on-camera accounts of what they claim to have discovered in the aftermath of one particular beaching. Their story is nothing less than fantastical: they claim to have found the remains of a mermaid.

With compiled amateur footage, including photos and video shot by deep-sea fishermen that never have been shown in the US, as well as cinema-quality CGI, Mermaids: The Body Found argues how a mythical creature – one of humankind’s most enduring legends – may be real. It depicts how mermaids may have evolved from the early human family tree and persisted into the present day.

Mermaids: The Body Found is so compelling with evidence and so credible, audiences can see it a second time when it repeats Monday, May 28, from 7-9 PM ET/PT as Monster Week comes to a close.

Mermaids: The Body Found is a story about evolutionary possibility grounded in scientific theory, which blends real-life events and phenomena with a first-hand account of a team of government scientists who testify they found the remains of a never-before-identified sea creature with ties to human origins—a mermaid. Stunning computer animation, eyewitness video and photographic evidence shows us what the mermaid looks like, and questions are raised about whether the government is involved in a massive cover-up, hiding information about the possible survival of these creatures and if they exist today.

Adding to the confusion is where the show aired.  It originally aired on Animal Planet, a network known for non-fiction content related to animals.  Clearly this show was intended for entertainment purposes with just enough misdirection thrown in to increase ratings.

The Aquatic Ape Theory

The scientific theory used in the show, is the Aquatic Ape Theory.  This theory uses physiological differences between humans and apes as proof of an aquatic phase during the evolution of humans.  This theory has few supporters and was generally dismissed for failing to support the idea that human ancestors were aquatic after a 1987 symposium in Valkenburg, the Netherlands.

Statement from NOAA

The film follows the two scientists who tracked the whale beachings for years and delivers first-hand, on-camera accounts of what they claim to have discovered in the aftermath of one particular beaching.

The show included interviews from two actors portraying NOAA scientists claiming to have discovered proof of mermaids.  Due to increased inquiries, NOAA released a statement on their website to clarify that no evidence of mermaids has been found.

But are mermaids real? No evidence of aquatic humanoids has ever been found. Why, then, do they occupy the collective unconscious of nearly all seafaring peoples? That’s a question best left to historians, philosophers, and anthropologists.

Supposed cover-up

A website created to go along with this TV show, sports a fake government seizure image.  The Department of Justice (DOJ) and Department of Homeland Security Investigations (HIS) generally seize sites for engaging piracy or sales of illegal or false goods aimed at citizens of the U.S.A.

The US Code sections quoted on the page are 18 U.S.C. § 286, § 287, and § 371.  Sections 286 and 287 of the Title 18 of the US Code refer to filing fraudulent claims against the government.  Section 371 of Title 18 of the US Code refers to conspiracy to commit a crime or defraud the government.

Scientific theories or information about the existence of mermaids would not fall under the jurisdiction of the DOJ and HSI.  This domain name does not appear on any list of DOJ or HIS seizures.

    Is this really what MOAA national is investing its time in?

  2. truthbetoldon 25 Nov 2012 at 8:34 pm

    Because they aré an endangered fish…. look people, web have webbed feet and hands. Where do you suppose we got them from?

  3. Larry B. Hearton 08 Feb 2013 at 9:41 am

    Well, the existence of mermaids is a kind of topic, which’s definitely rhetorical. I think that it’s just used to attract the audience’s attention…

  4. Believer#170on 26 Feb 2013 at 2:43 am

    I believe! No matter what! Yes, we were mislead but the evidence is true! MERMAIDS!!!

  5. Believer#170on 26 Feb 2013 at 3:06 am

    When I 1st saw it, I was so happy and full of belief that they are real. But then at the end it said “some events may be fictional” or something like that then my heart sank. But since then I’ve done some research and found that some of the stuff on the show like the unknown spears found in open sea fish and “the bloop” recording are real. Call it what you want, but in my heart, I know there real. Not to bring religion into this matter but in the bible it does talk about the Leviathan, which are sea monsters. Any advice? What I advise any hardcore believers or wanna- be- believers, research, learn, ask hard questions, and don’t give up. They are out there.

  6. Matthew LoFiegoon 27 Feb 2013 at 4:20 pm

    Believer, I remember the Bloop recording from years back and was fascinated by it. However, NOAA reported late last year that they have finished an analysis and determined that the event was most likely caused by a massive breakup of an undersea ice shelf:

    As for the ancient hooks, this may or may not be relevant:

  7. jacob trudellon 25 Apr 2013 at 12:00 pm

    Now we all know that there are fish and other things in that ocean we dont know about. for a simpel example the gint squid no one knew they were here they just simpely bloow it out of the picher. till they found beeks from them in whales stumics. for people that judge the power of the ocean you exploer it from inch to inch then you can tell me thats these things cant be out there that ailen cant be real there are more planets out there things we cant explane or comprhend. KEEP YOUR CRITISIZM TO YOUR SELF!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. Stef Moenon 04 May 2013 at 2:40 am

    Considering we don’t know much about our oceans, and it seems we find out more and more crazy stuff about our planet every year; you’d be a fool to deny the possibility….
    Don’t get me wrong, the way they have portrayed this can be quite misleading, but don’t blow them off your shoulders quite yet.. If you listened to their story, wouldn’t you be able to tell they were afraid?… They are coming out with the “truth” about a mythical being thought only in folk lore and fairy tales. Of course they will have actors portraying them, and of course its going to sound crazy at first! But, there’s still the “What If” factor. What If, this is actually true?.. What If, they are just trying to bring a little more honesty to the world? Maybe its crazy, maybe just stupidity thanks to the lac of reality in this era, or maybe.. just maybe, I’m a bloody fuckin moron.
    But frankly, it could go either way with this. And does it really matter?… We are Land, They are Sea (if they exist) There’s a reason we are in separate worlds…. and if the government is actually BEHIND the coverup like so many think, maybe there’s good reason for it? MAYBE, they are trying to save the CLOSEST LIVING RELATIVE WE’VE GOT, other than a smelly bonobo chimp…
    Fantasy or fact, only you can decide at this point in time… my personal biased opinion; i’m going to keep HOPING for the fact that they do exist, and if they really do… I wanna meet one. and get an autograph ;D

  9. lindaon 26 May 2013 at 11:24 pm

    The government is hidng the fact that mermaids do exists. Unicorns are mentioned in the bible. So who are we to say they do or don’t exists. At one point, a story has to start with something or someone with personal experience. As for me, I can say I do believe that at one point in time, mermaids did and still exsits.

    Ps: I’m only 17. I sound smart! :b

  10. the truthisoutthereon 27 May 2013 at 12:27 am

    saying that no evidence has been found doesnt meant that the evidence doesnt exist….the 1st electric car was creaed in the 60s , but destroyed because of corporate greed.Much is witheld from us, i dont know why but it is.

  11. evellitaon 27 May 2013 at 1:08 am

    I am more concerned about the whales and what the military is doing that is causing them harm. Is the government hiding something from us? Whats new? If the American Public knew what was really going on in Washington we would burn it to the ground. We will never know.

  12. stephon 28 May 2013 at 2:46 am

    I Am So Fascinated With All Of This!

  13. Jim Hougeon 28 May 2013 at 8:26 am

    Why is Obama and the US Govt. hiding this information? A find of this significance should be shared with the world. Of course we didn’t hesitate to wipe out the american indian population when they got in the way of progress. All of this so Obama and his military can have a weapon nobody else has.

  14. bleacher creatureon 28 May 2013 at 10:54 am

    Regardless of the validity of the mermaid theory. The fact is dolphins and whales are injured from government sonar testing. Maybe this was a desperate attempt to protect these animals.

  15. seafoamon 28 May 2013 at 1:00 pm

    1) The research was confiscated from the NOAA scientists by the US and SA governments.
    2) The US Navy is conducting sonar experiments using a new and more powerful sonar that is killing sea mammals.
    3) All of the sea mammal beachings that have resulted in recent years led the citizens of the world to think the cause may have been environmental, pollution, etc. when the US Navy has been causing these deaths and hiding this fact. (criminal)
    4) When the Dept. of Homeland Security is involved, you should realize this is not just another “fish” story. The Navy’s extensive attempts to dismiss the stories is typical of the history of coverup attitudes and actions.
    5) The recordings have been studied by other experts and they agree it is communication and not ice shelves scraping over each other.
    6) The two NOAA scientists who resigned from NOAA have continued their research.
    7) Now, a year later after the initial Animal Planet show, a new show has aired showing video proof of these sea mammals. It is nothing short of amazingly phenomenal!
    8) So, while we continue to deal with government corruption, cover-ups and conspiracies over above ground issues with our species, certain compartmentalized government agencies have always kept hidden information on alien visitors and technology and I would suspect have kept hidden other earthly discoveries over the years such as this sea mammal. Make no mistake, our government is conducting ongoing research on live “mermaids”.
    9) So, as citizens of this government and world, what are we going to do about ending the Navy’s secret killer sonar research and disclosure of their secret research on the mermaids?

  17. jacknewporton 28 May 2013 at 9:35 pm

    Hundreds of nuclear subs thousands of sonar technicians making recording 24/7. Decades of recording. Yes sonar technicians can identify marine sounds.No BS “Bloop” tapes.

  18. Kimon 29 May 2013 at 8:14 pm

    Look all of the evidence you need is on the documentary and of course the government is going to tell you it’s fake just like they do everything else. Why do you think certain parts of the oven are unde 24/7 suralence even Area 51 explain that shit. Also why does the present and head officials have to keep what they know a secret. You can’t believe that we are the only beings out here

  19. Christopheron 29 May 2013 at 9:19 pm

    It is real because Believe it or not burnen bailey aka freak show buyed the real mermaid and the ocean Is full of mystery and wonderful thing waiting to be exsplore that’s what god wonted is to do exsplore his creation I say we go out and do that and yes they are hideing things how else they’re plaining the zombie virus, Bigfoot, vampires, werewolf,area 51 and of course South Carolina legendary creature lizard man think about if you look at the mothman and the owlman how this happend who created this it’s the government they t
    Did this if we don’t do anything we are next so I say we asked why are they doing this oh btw there is an underground under the White House I think idk if its true or not but there is a lab where they do experiment idk if true but Yhea it’s time for us to exsplore the ocean and sea who cares we are doing what the bible tell us the unseen and the seen in this world plus if the mermaids are real then where is Atlantist

  20. Mahdianaon 29 May 2013 at 10:15 pm

    Believer.. I think of course there real but maybe the government is right to keep this secret. I mean Americans are horrible we would most likely try to eat them. If you look at are past as humans beings we are not good at coexisting. People being as dumb as we are would most likely try to start a war. Most people can’t even except African Americans let alone mermaids (aquatic apes). But it gives me peace and mind to know I’m not the only believer. Thank god

  21. Jeanon 29 May 2013 at 10:25 pm

    Wake up people our government lies to us all the time !People need to let all our so called leaders ,to stop treating us as though we are just easy to mislead!! Why would anyone choose to hide something so fantastic ?! So I suggest they stop killing innocent people with wars ,and all the other crap! Navy And Military need to Leave oceans alone!!! I think they just like killing, Still Yea Mermaids!! Jean

  22. Jimbo Hon 30 May 2013 at 7:07 pm

    I’ve, wonder for yrs. If Mermaids existed, i’ve read accounts of sightings if them throughout history, after watching and paying close attn: to the show Mermaids the evidence, with my wife the other day, i’am totally convicnce, they exist, and , that there is a cover up. You have these web sites out there claiming the show is a hoax , but no where do they indicate where in the show the the fake is. We all know the reinactments of what the creatures looked like swimming in the waters were. But the creature caught on tape by the divers in the mini sub wasvthe real deal.

  23. Jeanon 30 May 2013 at 10:00 pm

    Hello to all , Just thought that I believe if Dr.Paul Robertson started a web site,…. And if all the people who love Gods creatures could vote to stop the military from dealing out the sonic waves that are so.. Not good for our friends of the oceans , maybe some prayers also! Because we all know Dr.Paul Robertson does care I could feel the shame he felt for our not so great government!!! Thank God there are still some of us who do care. Jean

  24. Jeanon 31 May 2013 at 6:49 am

    Well I just heard on CNN that mermaids the evidence was a FAKE documentary!!! Sounds like same old BS! Government says jump,news says,how high!? Sonar ,beaching mammals,and that’s murdering Now give us the actors real names!!! Documentarys are suppose to mean that facts have some truth to them. Still I will keep on my search for truth over lies always! Jean

  25. Matthew LoFiegoon 31 May 2013 at 7:14 am

    Jean, here is the actor list for the show:

    “Dr. Paul Robertson” was played by actor Andre Weideman.

  26. Daleon 31 May 2013 at 7:18 am

    i believe eveything in the videos i believe in the sighting bt i want to know more i wanna get down there ad see for myself , i’d like to know why cover something so amazing up

  27. Monicaon 31 May 2013 at 9:24 am

    Whether or not they are real its not like the government will ever allow us to know the truth.

  28. Jeanon 31 May 2013 at 10:31 pm

    Jean again, I still think that where there is smoke there is FIRE! I know that whales are not beaching themselves for the fun of death, so I can only come to one and only conclusion, sonar, military, government still chooses to hide the facts.Stupid is not written on my forehead, Still ,Why?

  29. nickon 31 May 2013 at 11:19 pm

    Bringing the bible into this conversation is pure ignorance, if you believe in the bibles stories, you should have no problem believing in mermaids. . . I personally believe in mermaids because the aquatic ape theory makes sense, if your an animal, with little sense, and you see your world breaking, shooting deadly fire and freezing, why wouldn’t you go to the safest place you can find, water. maybe I’m wrong, but until you know for a fact, you cant say that there is nothing there

  30. Willon 01 Jun 2013 at 1:57 pm

    No matter your beliefs or lack of religion on athist it doesn’t matter. the creation or the product of the creation, what came first chicken or egg. Well I believe in God and the multi universe theory. Either God made it possible for evolution and expansion or expansion, and or evolution produced a Godly being and in result he helped expanding. In any manner all things are possible. Mermaids as well. We have birds and bears that are aquadic as well as other spieces that break of evolving adapting to multiple habitats. So no it is not ignorant to involve God or evolution!

  31. Jeanon 02 Jun 2013 at 2:29 pm

    Jean again, So true you guys ! Keep your minds open and your heart free.

  32. Hamon 04 Jun 2013 at 9:46 pm

    Are we implying that because Argo was a film therefore it is not true story? It is not because it is a film that it is not true. It is not because the government said so that there is no truth that we should believe the government, There is something about this movie…

  33. Willon 05 Jun 2013 at 8:21 am

    Ham do you really believe everything the goverment tells you.

  34. Jeanon 07 Jun 2013 at 11:16 am

    Jean ,, Some people believe the government no matter what, I know from experience how the government has NOT! Been there when it should have been ! My husband has been through hell thanks to the way the way they allow the lawyers to treat people in my spouses situation!! So I DONT trust them ! With good reason!

  35. Joeon 08 Jun 2013 at 10:03 pm

    Maybe we shouldn’t believe everything in the bible. Some of the stuff is made up, just stories to try and prove a certain point. I don’t think that the bible has anything to do with the possibility of mermaids (or unicorns for that matter) existing. Nobody can say with certainty whether mermaids exist. People have their own biased opinions and beliefs but let’s face it, we can’t really know if anything exists unless we see it with our own eyes. Whether it be the possibility of an afterlife, unicorns, mermaids, giant spaghetti monsters, or a turd sandwich. People need to stop being ignorant of other people and let them believe and think what they want to.

  36. Jeanon 08 Jun 2013 at 10:18 pm

    Joe has a very good point . As my spouse and I have reviewed many times . Jean

  37. Pamon 10 Jun 2013 at 10:21 am

    Can anyone send me web address/info of the “real” person who supposedly is saying he is Dr. paul Robertson on the Mermaid show? All the people that say it’s either actors named Andre Weideman or David Evans are wrong. Has anyone bothered to look at pictures of these actors? They are someone else entirely. The person being interviewed clearly is the person he says he is, a researcher, because you can’t find him “as an actor” anywhere else on the web. If you were an actor, wouldn’t your agent be putting you out there to promote you, especially since this show did amazingly well? Yet, after all that, you CANNOT find this person’s picture or “actor” bio anywhere on the web? Believe me, I’ve tried.

    Also, why would Animal Planet take down a site to make it look like the government took it down? Come on, if they are supposedly admitting that it was “fiction” why would this domain even exist?

  38. Jeanon 14 Jun 2013 at 2:19 am

    Pam. Here is the is the URL that I was told to check . Let me know what you thought, I don’t believe they are the same ! Think about how the supposed actor…… Looked so uncertain to ,as if ,why bother they have ruined my career ! Also why was the navy solder in shadow and voice changed ? Why did he say that the live one ,captured died after 2yrs , And that he had to live with that for the rest of his life!!? So here is the URL tittle/tt1816585. (Jean)

  39. anninmobileon 15 Jun 2013 at 11:24 pm

    jean, henry cavill, playing Man of Steel, is not this man posing as Dr. Paul Robertson, if this is really an actor. So people keep trying to find the actor.

  40. Brandyon 16 Jun 2013 at 1:07 am

    Ok, If they didnt exist then why do these scientist keep trying to tell their story?
    WHY is that when they found remains of something the government came and took their things and disposed of them
    WHY if their not real did the government surveillance two boys who claim to have seen them and made them never tell a soul and say they lied?
    YES all the video is computer, no one is stupid its called reenactment of a event.
    Im not saying i believe in this whole heartedly but damn if they are not real then why are they covering it up? why are they shutting people up?
    because they know whats going on and the government KNOWS they are harming animals and disturbing life in the water because they are idiots.

  41. purposeon 16 Jun 2013 at 4:02 am

    I just heard of this and I have a great deal to say about this why wasn’t this mentioned in the Bible the Simplexity of this conflict is mine blowing MERMAIDS
    Are you kidding me I scene the skeletal structure and it looked the part I scene the
    Navys survivor video and that scary but beautiful creature looked terrestrial and
    WHY THE HELL HASN’T OBAMA SPOKE ON IT THIS SHIT IS BIGGER THEN WHEN Michael Jackson died this is a hole nother life species I. think back to anistasia is there there could be a city full of these new found creatures they say we drove Neanderthals into instinction they also say we drove these creatures into hiding were they dangerous could this be why when we serf shark mistake us for fish could this be why were very good swimmers……..? Lookout Michael Phelps you got
    some competition…lol I thik that this is another fi ctitious entity from the government that’s why I’m a American citizen with out the US did you know our first president was kicked out of England yup this shit gets deep

  42. Ricon 17 Jun 2013 at 7:46 pm

    I believe govt dont want us to knwo because they are currently workign with mermaids those caught, and training them, we will use them in wars and attacks… hmmmm

  43. Markon 20 Jun 2013 at 5:01 am

    The only true problem with this debate is why dot we see these species more often I mean Murphy’s law is going to catch up to them sooner or later and they will be like every other seabased organism

  44. Jeanon 22 Jun 2013 at 2:19 am

    Hey I guess until this scientist comes forward , or decides to fill us all in , I m going to assume just as I always have! The military -government will use any tactics they choose ! And assume that all of the citizens, who aren’t worth the time of day let alone could care less what we feel about our sea life! I have no idea who the man of steel is , I assume you are talking about the superman movie?

  45. Jeanon 23 Jun 2013 at 3:41 pm

    I really wish that that we could trust this spying lying ,government !! I have seen so much bull shit that we would all be better off to find a country that tells thier citizens truth !! That is if there is such a place! But I hope there is another earth so I can get off this alien world !!

  46. mikeon 08 Jul 2013 at 1:04 am

    this thread is just too funny

  47. Jeanon 21 Jul 2013 at 5:19 pm

    Yea, so is the minds of people who choose to read between the lines!

  48. Jeanon 21 Jul 2013 at 5:26 pm

    Sorry missed my point, I meant people who choose NOT to see the truth but instead choose to believe,,THE GOVERNMENT would never mislead !

  49. Ameliaon 30 Jul 2013 at 10:20 am

    We are evolved from monkeys we have a small amount of skin between our fingers and feet now, there for if we were to live in the sea for generations we would slowly adapt to living in the sea but could in fact grow a tail to survive by catching food and possibly a human top half in reasoning it seams it could be possible or even likely to happen If we can evolve from apes I bet we could evolve to fish. I am 13

  50. Katrina Smithon 07 Aug 2013 at 4:36 pm

    I hadn’t known about the website that you listed nor that it had been seized but I do know that Dr paul robertsons site was also seized. Im still on the fence about all this. I thoroughly enjoyed the program and while I believe they did there part on making it known that some of it was fictitious and merely based on light facts I had assumed they meant the videos of the flashbacks of the evolutions not the story as a whole. I fully believe that they used actors if needed and may have even changed peoples names to protect their identities of these people for fear of the backlash they would receive.

  51. Jeanon 11 Aug 2013 at 5:42 am

    Katrina, I am jean , No one has seen , nor have been able to find Dr Paul Roberton on Any actors sites! Believe me HE IS Not…. Have spent hours and every actor wants thier face to be seen,as that gets them a better chance to maybe get parts in other documentrys ,Hey maybe a great part in a great movie. I just want people to try to think outside the box. Not just in a box .Also try looking into where the FACTS that the military gets more money than anyone to get weapons they test in oceans,or even on innocents of all species ,or maybe anyone of us. Thanks for your input! Jean

    Does anyone believe that our weather actually mother? I Don’t !

    Jean , sorry,but I forgot to type Mother NATURE.

  54. Callion 23 Aug 2013 at 8:14 pm

    They are used for medicinal purposes that’s why the government is hiding them.

  55. Alex22on 24 Aug 2013 at 5:45 pm

    Here is the follow up to the original story:
    Mermaids, The New Evidence HDTV

    In short, something is true behind this story.
    In South Africa the body of the mermaid was confiscated. Why? Why didn’t the government give it to the South African scientists? It would have been a great propaganda and a truly great achievement for their country. Instead they destroyed the evidence. The first time in my life I am forced to believe that the only authority that could have forced them to destroy the evidence is a Shadow World Government.
    Also, it seems very likely that the Shadow Government produced the documentary, at least that way they could control the agenda/propaganda. Think about it for a moment, the existence of mermaids proves anything else but evolution/Darwinism, yet the documentary attempts in vain to give a new evidence for evolution. On the contrary, this is a new evidence for missing links. Don’t forget, the fact that human beings have 4 legs and horses have 4 legs doesn’t prove that we had a common ancestor, to prove that you have to find the missing links.

  56. twillon 02 Sep 2013 at 2:55 pm

    Yes they are real, fisherman for many many years have dictated this, drawings from all parts of the world before they ever knew of each other and communicated. Yes it is real the government is hiding it from us just like all the other things they have come across we are not stupid. Maybe if they would open it to us it would stop some of the killings that go on among us to let us know there are more better knowing beings better than us in the world.

  57. Readabookon 21 Sep 2013 at 9:52 am

    Mermaids are real!

    The first error is that we do not evolve but we were created! Go back to the book of Enoch it says the Fallen Angels transgressed against God . They came into the daughters of man producing Giants in the land- nephilim, Anakim, etc. Also, those Angels were said to Transgress against all living creatures creating all kinds of abominations and hybrids. MERMAIDS were one of them ! Scientist have skeletons of lots of hybrids and the Giants! You will eventually see a mermaid and the government knows it just like the know that aliens are also breeds created by the fallen angels. The mermaids and aliens are not friendly they are demonic creatures.

    So far, we’ve seen in our study, that the days of Noah (Noe) had many parallels to our modern time in history. We saw that some rebellious angels left their heavenly estate and cohabitated with human woman and that the result of that union was what was known as the Nephilim. We also examined some extra-biblical texts; namely the book of Enoch, Jubilees and the Genesis Apocryphon and saw that they confirm the history where the angels are concerned as well as their offspring, the Nephilim. We also looked at the modern day Nephilim in the manner of them residing in genetically produced shells that some refer to as aliens or extraterrestrials.

    We’ve also looked at what appears to be scripture as well as references from Jubilees and Jasher that show that the angels taught, among other things, the practice of gene manipulation to mankind. We now have a clear understanding of where the ancients got their many strange gods, such as the unicorn, the minotaur, the centaur and other oddities. They were stories passed down from the antediluvian period. We then saw how genetic manipulation is nothing but that practice revived in our modern day.
    Read the Bible and the other books you will find more real answers there than any scientist will try to prove with a defunct evolution theory. Check out archangelclk on YouTube that dude has some cool videos that will give you much insight on the books.

    P.S. Just because you dont believe in God doesnt mean that historical books that have existed for more than 2000 years should be tossed aside and considered not valid for a more modern theory ! There are many historical books to support evidence and yes they are much older and have more proof than Darwin’s evolution theory which he recanted before he died!!!

    Here’s my take and yes I am a college graduate so I’m not an easily fooled person. I think there are so many possibilities out there that we can never be sure. The circus picture from the 1800s doesn’t seem like the other pictures of mermaids which were obviously fakes. Yes there really is a Dr. Paul Robertson and the guy from the sub, but they are being portrayed by actors in the documentary. I looked that up and have seen other videos where they portray other researchers and those researchers are real as well. My big question is this…We found pictures of Woolley Mammoths in caves long before we found the actual animal, so we know the pictures weren’t lies, people actually saw them. So where did the pictures of the mermaids come from that are in caves all around the world? Are they just imagination? Were we, as a race, that advanced that we could make mermaids up? Why is the Navy still trying to hide the fact that they are testing sonar in our oceans and that it is harming our marine mammals? We have recently discovered a species of whale thought to be extinct still living in our oceans. The goblin shark is out there but we only find them dead and know nothing about their living habits. What I’m saying is there is so much out there that we don’t know.This all leaves me with more questions than answers. Do mermaids exists? I don’t know, but I hope they can either prove or disprove it before I die.

    Wow..this really blow my mind a bit. And this thread is insane(great). I watched the doc. Animal Planet a few weeks back when they aired it I was pretty bummed coming here and reading about its lies” and cover-ups” but there’s STILL soome truth to it.., I’ve ALWAYS Believed in Mermaids , in the fact that they slightly resemble as half human ,but look nothing like people, but I also believe they are scared and scary creatures (life forms,aquatic beings) of the sea. Its an oxymoron we ALL know the Gov. Lies out their asses almost All the time, but they also do protect us. Idk if you’ve heard but Human Beings aren’t all that great some of us Can’t handle the Truth sooooo much so that we would turn against them in order to protect ourselves and our children, it was a scary thought to find out Aliens exsited. I mean its stupid to think we’re the ONLY life forms in the universe while knowing we aren’t exactly Alone in this planet ,but people tend to freak the fxxk out to high points. I’m not surprised at all that we haven’t seen more “proof” of Mermaids out there. There’s a Reason they’re not in the open. There are STILL creatures being discovered today. The gov. is doing us some partial justice by not exposing the Real Truths they constantly Hide. The people NEED to Feel Safe, protected, assured of a “Controled” enviornment so chaos doesn’t happen, I mean its hectic out there as it you really think people could handle such news? and as for the one’s saying ” why would anyone hide anything so fantastic” “why cover up something so amazing” now you know why, because that something “amazing & fantastic” could well be Dangerous & Alarming as it is magnificient. ooh there was a small piece someone mentioned about how we don’t know our waters by the inch and its true Untill the day they can 100% say they have search and explored the Entire Sea and Land we will never know for sure what is really out there..this Big small planet is filled with wonders, I mean Flight 370 is STILL IN SEARCH MODE!! AND THEY HAVENT BEEN ABLE TO COVER THE INDIAN OCEAN COMPLETELY !! You know why? because that motherEffer is Deep, Long, and HuGe ! If they can’t find that plane in the water what makes you think anyone can find a mermaid ? The U.s as already searched around its waters , but the idian ocean as well as others have such Big Bodies you couldn’t even find Ursela if you tried. the Ocean is a Mysterious place indeed and the Gov. (sack of shxts) carrys more elements of secrets then it can bargan for. All in All I Am a Believer ! and i wont include or exclude anything that may carry weight to this great Topic :) ~ P.s the gov. isnt working with mermiads as weapons of some sort and i dont believe they’re using them for medical purposes, but i wont rule it out due to the fact tht it wouldnt be the 1st time i heard a theory similiar to using something for the intent of something else (expiriements) like ex: cures and vaccins so people pay for the help they need when sick ….i also believe there is a cure for cancer but i wont get into that…js

  64. A3sopon 11 Apr 2014 at 10:17 am

    Lots of crazy up in these comments. People believe what they want to believe, nothing more and certainly nothing less. Less is reality.

    I’ll bite, though, js. What’s that theory on cancer?

    ‘Cancer,’ as if it is one disease and not an extraordinarily complex multi-disciplinary set of conditions. Make no mistake, whoever figures out a way to stop it will rule the world financially for a few decades at least. But I’ll reserve rebuttal until I hear your theory.

  65. Lukason 02 Jul 2014 at 5:35 pm

    There is some brilliant trolling going on in this thread :)

  66. kaceyon 15 Nov 2014 at 7:56 am

    I believe in mermaids but i think that if theyre real they should be left alone cos if the government notices em then god knows what theyll do. They might end up going out to sea and capturing them then maybe theyll begin to test them and or KILL them. Come on it doesnt take s genius to figure that out. Theyre covering something up clearly

  67. Prace Doktorskieon 03 Mar 2015 at 7:38 pm

    A fascinating discussion is worth comment. There’s no doubt
    that that you should write more on this topic, it might not be a taboo subject but usually people do
    not discuss such issues. To the next! All the best!!

  68. norbelon 07 Apr 2015 at 5:14 am

    i hate to be a mere member of public because a lot is really being with held from the public.Can someone out there tell me how governments conceal any proof about things of human interest? some things we think are myths are not but just a secret.

  69. Matthew LoFiegoon 10 Apr 2015 at 9:13 am

    Norbel, I think you’d actually be surprised by the lack of information being held from the public. Using history as a guide, it is a safe constant that governments very rarely know the things that their citizens suspect them of knowing. History is full of examples of lies from those in authoritative positions, sure, but more often than not those lies are meant to cover up ignorance and incompetence rather than nefarious actions. This subject, however, isn’t one of those cases. All evidence supports the conclusion that Animal Planet created a work of fiction and invented government scientists to add false legitimacy.

    Don’t be too down with your position as a “mere member of the public.” The truth is usually far more boring than the theory.

  70. mermaidz rule!on 13 Apr 2015 at 5:52 pm

    if mermaids are real… why does ancient egyptian paintings in the cave showing humans scaring mermaids away? you know what! i dont care, i belive in mermaids! maybe the thought that mermaids and sirens (girl looking creatures that lure handsome and ugly men to there homes) where the same thing!!!!!!!

  71. Matthew LoFiegoon 14 Apr 2015 at 8:42 am

    Kind of a chicken and the egg reasoning in bringing up the mythical Sirens. They were a creation of ancient fantasy writers and may actually be responsible for the continuation or popularization of the mermaid myth itself. Ocean madness can cause people to see and hear some pretty strange things. It’s no wonder that stories like that are common in ancient cultures. But again, there is zero evidence in the fossil or biological records that supports the theory.

    Interesting point about the Egyptian cave paintings, and one I hadn’t paid much attention to in the Animal Planet story. I took a look at the evidence outside of the mermaids tv show and found these:

    That second link is a great piece about the mockumentary programs on Animal Planet and History Channel. But the bottom line is that the images used in the show of the supposed cave paintings of mermaids from Egypt are computer enhanced and based on actual rock paintings of swimming people.

    it’s real ?

  73. marciaon 24 May 2015 at 11:50 am

    Mermaids or not, the fact that these filthy war mongers and greedy pigs are testing sonar weaponry in the ocean putting all life forms there at risk is dispicable, shameless and outright disgusting. They are already destroying all life forms on the land including humans with their many forms of weapons testings but to take it to the ocean now shows their wanton disregard for all life forms. To the notion that mermaids exist, nothing in impossible and nothing these liars say is trustworthy. So far their records speak for themselves.

  75. Genome projecton 24 Jun 2015 at 1:01 am

    I watched a show on TV about mermaid deaths in large numbers including whales and fish due to a tremendous sound/shockwave that sounded like something from the bible as a loud trumpet-low Bass sound… A few minutes/seconds after the sound marine life (especially whales) were so loud as if they were dying… Which they did. What caused this sound and will it happen again? If u ever seen silent hill and hear the high pich warning sound before the darkness/evil arises, the crows flying away, etc… Something like that… It’s scary and if its like the third sound of the trumpet or w/e the bible says kinda seems like a coincidence. The end of the world.maybe has begun.

  76. Craig Puhrmannon 08 Jul 2015 at 5:00 pm

    Personally, I don’t know how accurate this story was, but I will say that the government cannot be trusted to ever tell the truth. So maybe the story is true and maybe not. But everyone should be cautioned not to believe anything the government says.
