Ariel in the fairy tale “Little Mermaid” is the closest thing that most of us know about mermaids. Until now no one can prove that mermaids really exist. But it’s curious how one government agency is trying to deny mermaids’ existence. That agency is the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
The agency published a post in their site entitled “No Evidence of Aquatic Humanoids Has Ever Been Found.” According to the post, the belief in mermaids might have originated since the dawn of our species. “Magical female figures first appear in cave paintings in the late Paleolithic (Stone Age) period some 30,000 years ago, when modern humans gained dominion over the land and, presumably, began to sail the seas.”
Apparently, the agency was forced to make this statement because lots of people began making inquiries in their agency after Animal Planet showed the series “Mermaids: The Body Found” during its “monster week” programmed.
Perhaps NOAA hopes that with their post, people will realize that the existence of mermaids is still just a myth.
You know, I watched Animal Planet’s “Mermaids: The Body Found” and some of the things presented there are based on historical facts although it was basically a pseudo-documentary. I believe that there is more to mermaids than what the government is revealing. I think there’s some cover up going on about its existence.
What about you? Do you believe that mermaids exist?
