Freaky Friday: Mermaids

We all grew up with stories of mermaids. But is it possible that mermaids not only existed in ancient times but they are here now, sharing our world with us?

I watched The Discovery Channel with fascination when they aired Mermaids: The Body Found. The source is credible: NOAA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Made up of scientists and experts on oceanic life, they make a compelling argument that a group of humans evolved into creatures that live in the water.

They picked up audio that is not known to belong to any marine creature. It reminded me of the sirens that sailors spoke about as they crossed the vast oceans.

They also have video of one such creature found on the beach. Its body was immediately removed by the Department of the Navy:

They have DNA evidence that creatures found in the ocean have both human DNA and marine DNA.

So, what do you think? Watch the videos at this link and let me know: do you believe in mermaids?

I've seen that video before. It's creepy as heck. But I don't believe it's real only for the fact that when you watch some of the "real footage" and then compare that to the website's "lab footage" they all appear to the use the same blippy technology camera. The unsteady fuzz, the blips. It's the same. Then when you go the website where supposedly the gov. has removed, it's one big image in the coding instead of security code. I'd like to believe it was the actual thing but there were too many signs that said it wasn't. Also, I went to NOAA to check out their "bloop" and it doesn't sound like that at all. Sounds like a giant underwater bubble! They have enhanced some of the story for the sake of television. But who knows? Humans haven't reached the farthest depths. They're still out there looking for the giant squid and stuff like that.
