Mermaids: The Body Found

Mermaids: The Body Found

Mermaid body found? That was the theme of a science fiction program that aired on Animal Planet, which is part of the Discovery Channel family of programming. Mermaids: The Body Found was a fictional account detailing the discovery of a mermaid body that was filmed documentary style, much like The Blair Witch Project.

Unfortunately, many people misunderstood the film’s intent and believed that a mermaid body had actually been found. Mermaids: The Body Found clearly stated that it was science fiction, not fact. However, the film claimed to “be based on some real events,” and that statement helped perpetuate the confusion.

The US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) issued a statement to clear up any confusion. NOAA clarified that “no evidence of aquatic humanoids has ever been found,” thus refuting the belief that mermaids are real.

According to, NOAA has released statements about other unexplained phenomena in the past including the Bermuda Triangle and the Lost City of Atlantis. Now, the belief that a mermaid body was found joins those two mysteries as nothing more than a misunderstanding.

Mermaids: The Body Found last aired on Sunday, July 15, 2012.

    Okay so here we go again.. all the so-called experts out there that want to debunk the story has an agenda! And here’s the agenda! They are trying to hide the fact that the Navy has a secret sonic weapon! I understand the hoopla about a mythical creature and how some people are excited that it may exist. Others laughed at the idea that some people have an open enough mind to say I don’t know! Let’s stick to the facts! The recording of the unknown creature is real! Whether it’s a mermaid or not I don’t know! It could be an unknown dolphin! But you have to have a real creature to make sounds! But here is something that everybody is missing through the fog of this story! Whale beaching happened! Did animal planet fake that to! I tend to believe that there is something to this creature! I don’t know what it is! And it’s okay to say I don’t know! I live in reality I deal with facts! And just because there was a lot of speculation going on in this television show does not take away from the fact those whale’s died along with all the other creatures that washed up on the shore! The US government is going to come out and discredit this film because they don’t want anybody to think about the fact they have an unknown secret weapon that caused the whale beaching’s! That was all over the world every time they tested it! Now for everybody out there reading this I’m going to leave you with this thought! You seen the number of creatures that died during the Navy weapons test! How many creatures died that we didn’t see? What is that going to do to the food chain? I cannot believe that I am the only one who has been thinking about this! But it is lost in the fog of the idea that a supposedly mythical creature exists or not! For me it’s irrelevant! The thing I’m worried about is the ocean dying! And you don’t have to deplete oxygen levels in the water to kill off a lot of animals! All you have to do is have a disruption in the food chain. The ramifications of the incidences that the Navy has perpetrated testing their secret weapon may never be known! Here’s something else to think about also along the lines of the validity of an unknown creature! There has been reports from all over the world of fish being speared in the open ocean! Did the animal planet fake that to? What about the open questions they were asking in the show about human beings being the only land animal that perspires salty sweat and tears! There is so much that we don’t know about the evolution of this planet! But just to write it off and scoff at it is being very closed minded! Another question for you to think about! Did the animal planet fake the cave paintings that were depicted at the end of the story! There is a lot more to this than meets the eye! And for all the people out there writing these articles saying wholeheartedly that this show was made up! They have an agenda. And their agenda is to keep the American people from looking at the government institutions that perpetrate a lot of the atrocities that have been going on in the world! And we’ll never know because they’ll claim national security.
