“Mermaids: The Body Found” Paul Robertson’s evidence on existence of mermaids

By Amanda Shore & DiMarkco Chandler

Recently, Animal Planet aired a two-hour special about the experiences of Paul Robertson, a former employee of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), who was investigating mass whale beachings around the world. This television program, “Mermaids: The Body Found,” which took five years to complete, gives compelling evidence that suggest mermaids could be real and perhaps still among us.

The program uses a sound clip that has been called “the bloop” as the first piece of evidence that there is an unknown or new species in the water. In 2007, Robertson and his team were investigating the mass whale beachings. 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 on the beach.

In order to prove their 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. To their surprise, they discovered that the unknown creature was communicating with them, possibly warning each other to get away.

As fate would have it, 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. And if that does not at least force you to open you eyes to the magic of the unknown, then you’re lost to a boring existence you call reality.

    Nobody will actually own up to it . they are afraid of because what will happen… they get demonized.by the authorities and the media.

    In the Philippines, mermaids and merman are common part of the folklore about creatures of the sea or the water. They are an accepted fact or truth to the old people of long ago when these used to have contacts with humans. they don’t have a documented story as in oral history, in the last 100 years of so.

    Here in the Far East, we do not even debate the issue of existence of mermaids… in Thailand, for instance, occultists and sorcerers are known to use the tears of the mermaid to perform ‘magic’ and guarantee their clients of winning lawsuits.

    To get the tears, they would have to wait for the opportune moment – a full moon’s night – for the mermaid would weep on seeing the lunar spectacle. They would collect the tears in a bowl and then use them accordingly. This is of course not an easy task… the client is expected to pay a lot, of course. The Thai magicians have to journey to the seas near to or around the Philippines to locate the mermaids.

    Our government is the most corrupt and dangerous organization there is.They want total control and will stop at nothing to get it.Anyone who is a self thinker and and goes against the normal is a threat to them.An if there is something out there, they want it and don’t want you to know about it.And there reason is “National Security” like they say about everything.Our government has the resources for unlimited energy and to end hunger,but we will never see it.

    Just watched the documentary on animal planet.Quite interesting.hard to not to believe in mermaids.It reminded of my late father who witness a death mermaid washed ashore when he was a teenager.This happened in Malaysia.Well,humans only discovered only 5% of the ocean.Who knows what are there beyond our reach!!!!!!

    Welll there theory explain what out there plus they found body parts in a great white and those body part were like no one has seen and explain the different body parts they found they found seal parts in it but it wasn’t a seal and explain the hands so I believe there might be mermaids and if they are we should just leave them alone before they get endangered like the blue whales or even worse extinct so if there real let’s leave them alone but I believe

    How many others have actually seen a mermaid? Or is it more accurate to say, for now, a mermaid-like creature of unknown origin. And how about actually interviewing someone with a contra opinion to Robertson’s for your articles?
