Mermaid Hoax?

Updated on December 7, 2012

Are recent reports of the discovery of Mermaids a hoax? A group of Marine Biologists have discovered new compelling evidence that suggests that Mermaids may exist. They have recorded strange sonar signals and have reconstructed humanoid remains found in the belly of a giant Shark that supports their theory that some kind of half Fish, half Human species exist in the Oceans and that the US government knows about them but is covering up evidence of their existence. Watch the video below and decide for yourself because if what they are saying is true it could have major implications where existing views of human origins are concerned.

In the video a team of Marine Biologists working on figuring out why large herds of Whales have been beaching themselves on numerous occasions and locations around the world stumble upon strange new sounds in the Ocean. One sound is determined to be man made and very destructive as it destroys the cell tissue and internal organs of Whales and other fish. The result is they lose control of their internal functions and end up on land to die. The second noise that they hear is one similar to that of Dolphins but ten times more complex. They determine that noise to be some sort of intelligent marine life.

They get a break in piecing their theory together when a Large Shark is caught off the coast of South Africa. In the belly of the Shark was the corpse of a strange creature that had the tail of a fish and the upper body, arms, and head similar to that of a Human. The remains were partially decomposed but with the help of several forensic experts using reconstructive technology they are able to piece the creature back together and determine that it is unlike anything they had ever seen before. It was a Mermaid. They then realized that the US government was using high powered Electro-Magnetic Sonar technology to kill, capture, and study the Mermaids.

The legend of the Mermaid was born out of tales told about life on the high Seas by sailors and fishermen alike. They would share their incredible tales upon returning from long outings at Sea about being seduced by beautiful half Fish, half female maidens. Their stories would usually be laughed off as products of sea sickness but eventually they become ingrained in cultural traditions. The name Mermaid is a combination of two words; Mer which means Sea and Maid which means maiden or woman in modern terms. It is not hard to realize therefore that the name Mermaid is politically incorrect in describing an entire species if that species consists of both mail and female genders. Perhaps a more suitable name would be Mer-humanoids or Merhomonids.

So, are these claims of the existence of Mermaids a hoax? Well depending on your openness to accepting these Biologists largely unsubstantiated evidence you may side with them and say no it is not a hoax. If you do you may also believe their theory that mermaids are an evolutionary offshoot of early Humans. In my opinion, if we are to believe that these Mermaids are real then we cannot limit the latitude of our curiosity in determining what they are. The US Marines are obviously not limiting their research to evolution alone or they wouldn’t be engaging in such drastic measures as frying hundreds of Whales and Dolphins with Electro-Magnetic Radiation to get their hands on one or two Mermaid specimen.

If these Humanoid sea creatures really exist and are not a hoax then why are they just being discovered? Although the Oceans and Seas are vast they have been fished for centuries using small time fishing boats to mega Trawlers that scrape the Ocean bottom scooping up every living creature possible. Could it be that these creatures were recently introduced to the planet? If so then by whom and for what reason? Could they have been introduced by Aliens perhaps? The possibilities are as vast as the Oceans themselves. At least now I have a better idea of why all those Whales and Fishes are dying off in the hundreds and thousands.

      Very well written and it is subject I have heard much about but have not seen any hard evidence to prove it one way or another. Just like the reports of werewolves, UFO's or Bigfoot. It is hard to make any real conclusions.

      There are many unknowns EPUS as no one knows the truth of reality/ life/existence. The way I see it, humanity is learning as it goes. That is why I put "Hoax?" in the title.

      I enjoyed this documentary months before. This is funny for me because the information is almost close to the truth.

      There can never be mythical creatures that ever existed.

      So, do a lot of Irish women shed tears into the sea hoping to attract a Selkie man? (lol)

      I have never heard of Selkies before but just briefly reading up on them I can see the resemblance to the Mermaid legends. Makes me wonder about the level of trust between sailors and their wives and how the insecurities within human nature messes with our emotions.

      Happy that you liked my Hub Maggie

      Selkies are an Irish legend that may interest you. I really enjoyed this.
