“Mermaids: The Body Found” increases speculation on existence of mermaids

By Amanda Shore

Paul Robertson, a former employee of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), speaks in a two-hour Animal Planet special about his experiences with his research team while they were investigating mass whale beachings around the world. This television program, “Mermaids: The Body Found,” took about five years to complete and gives compelling evidence that suggests that mermaids could be real.

In this program, a sound clip that has been called “the bloop” is played as the first piece of evidence that there is an unknown or new species in the water. Robertson and his team were investigating the mass whale beachings in 2007. When they examined the tissue samples that they took from the whales, they discovered evidence of a SONAR weapon. They believed that this weapon caused the whales to become disoriented. The whales tried to escape the blasts of sound and ended up in waters that were too shallow to support their massive sizes, so they ended up beached.

To try and prove this theory, they pulled up one of their buoys that was recording SONAR activity. It was in this recording that the bloop was discovered. They recognized the sound of another animal mixed in with the sounds of the whales and dolphins. After more closely inspecting it, they discovered that the unknown creature was communicating with them, possibly warning each other to get away.

Later on, there was another mass beaching in South Africa. The researchers in South Africa had recorded similar sounds on their own devices. Robertson and his team traveled there to investigate. There, they were shown the remains of an unknown creature that had been found inside a great white shark. After carefully studying this creature’s remains, these scientists became convinced that it was a mermaid.

Unfortunately, the government confiscated the remains and their research as the team was about to return to the United States. The only thing that they had left was the bloop. Robertson tracked down one of two boys that had reportedly seen a mermaid body on the beach the morning of the first mass whale beaching. He says that he captured the mermaid on his camera phone. Robertson viewed this video as well as a drawing that the boy did after the event. The drawing matched what his team had found.

In addition to all of the scientific evidence that they found, they also looked to history for some evidence. There have been reports of strange spears and daggers found in sea creatures that fishermen have been finding for years. Robertson had found one of these tools in the great white shark. 16th-century drawings show very close matches to what Robertson and his team found. Ancient cave paintings show struggles between humans and mermaids.

Robertson stated in the program that he believes that mermaids do exist but that, unlike one of his colleagues who thinks that the only solution is to find them, he doesn’t want to find the mermaids anymore. He stated that he thinks the mermaids have survived this long because they know how to hide. He talked about how he doesn’t think that humans would be able to coexist with the mermaids without wiping them out. He is still trying to get the testing and development of the SONAR weapon to stop in order to save whales, dolphins and mermaids.

Whether they are mermaids or not, there are definitely mysterious and unknown species in the oceans. Watch “Mermaids: The Body Found” to decide for yourself.

    I’ve always felt that there has to be another type of Humanoid Creature relating to the waters. Because when we look at Natural Child Birth it’s way to amazing how a newborn baby knows just what to do under those conditions. I say conditions being that the human body temperature is around 98.6 degrees however once the birth is over the newborn baby is now in a new environment and a way much colder temperature of liquid fluid that is unknown to it And yet there is no indication that there was any struggle to adapt to a much cooler temperature. For this to happen for a baby then how much easier would it be possible for a grown man or woman to take to the sea and adapt to live in deep sea and over time metamorphosis take place & man as we know it changes just a little in certain areas so that he can compete in this new area or environment of life like the webbing between our fingers grow just a little bit more so that we can swim with greater ease. Every other creature on this planet has taken to the ocean over time and over came with metamorphic changes, snakes have done it birds are doing it everyday right before our very eyes. So thinking about this who could better adapt then man !!!

    If the governments confiscated their research, it’s VERY obvious Mermaids DO Exist! ALL governments lie to it’s people… WE are NOT “alone” in the Universe or under the seas!

    Real science is so fascinating and mystifying.
    I’m offended that a once respectable channel would resort to this level of tripe.
    What also really offensive is the number of people here who actually believe this crap!

    too many legends about their existence to ignore. I like the Dogan tribe legend that these creatures came from the Sirius star long ago, no Darwin theory. Why has the Sirius star been removed from Google sky. The crop circle that appeared in Salinas , Ca. DEC 30, 2013 had braille codes within them. 192 was the message. Iridium is 192 on the periodic table of elements . Iridium intake will make ones phychic powers very strong. See things for yourself and believe what you see. Don’t take any bodies word for truth, especially the government

    If this is a hoax, which it appears to be, why did the University of Cape Town and the University of the Witwatersrand allow their names to be used ? They should sue for defamation and bringing their names into disrepute!! I did wonder why the UCT guy was dressed as if he was living in the 1970’s!

    i should imagine that if they ever did find them and nessie they would kill them disect them and then burn the evidence.

    We haven’t even scratched the surface of the ocean how can we discard this remember Charles Darwin everything evolved and is still evolving look at our children they are programed for technology

    Oh Ye Of Little Faith! I Believe There Are Mermaids! For The Simple FACT That It Says UNICORN In The BIBLE! (o; God Is A God Of All Mysteries! Why Limit Your Creativity? God Is Creativity God Is Imagination God Is EVERYTHING! Also Did You Know That WE Are Gods? Psalm 82:6 & Jesus Confirms John 10:34 It Is Written In Our Law That WE Are Gods!
