Americans “hoodwinked” by mermaid “documentary”

As mentioned by the Discovery Channel: “Throughout history, people from nearly every culture have independently described the same half-man, half-fish anomaly. What if there’s a kernel of truth behind the legend of this mythic creature? Is the idea of mermaids really so far-fetched? Maybe so, maybe not. The show itself, though science fiction, is based on some real events and scientific theory.”

 

NOAA says on its website that there is no evidence that "half-human, half-fish sirens of the sea" have ever lived


Well,the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has felt obliged to issue a statement that “no evidence of aquatic humanoids has ever been found,” after the Discovery Channel episode…which was dressed up as a documentary and caused many Americans to believe that mermaids were real.

The program, entitled ‘Mermaids: The Body Found’, was aired on Animal Planet, which is part of the Discovery Channel. Despite clearly stating it was science fiction, the documentary style of the program and the fact it claimed to “be based on some real events” led to considerable public excitement about the possibility that mermaids and mermen were more than myths.

As part of NOAA’s mission “public education,” they therefore felt obliged to issue the statement. So it appears that mermaids have now joined the ranks of the Bermuda Triangle and Atlantis – two other topics that have been addressed by the organization in recent years.

So there you go folks, despite how you may love the thought that mermaids are real — they are not! You have been hoodwinked…again!

    Maybe they released this statement to get the feds off their back. You saw how they were constantly being watched. The total realization that mermaids are real would fall into the same taboo category as the infamous film Zeitgeist. People would panic and religion would change forever. The skeptics of evolution would be silenced forever and the Juggernauts such as Church/Government would lose a drastic amount of power. I.E the reason for their sonar weapon.

    Interesting, if you believe there is a conspiracy you need a psychiatrist suggesting one is insane and if you don’t believe then you are suggesting you are sane because you don’t need a psychiatrist. Honestly, there are conspiracies and our government does lie……let’s consider wikipedia leaks, i’m just sayn’ it’s possible and no one is in need of a psychiatrist……….ride the wave of possibilities
