Now you think, that I show you some pretty pictures of beautiful mermaids, but you are wrong. If there are mermaids they look pretty hideous and ugly if these reports, videos and pictures are genuine. First some description like always and then sightings, videos, pics and conclusion. Here is the description:
A mermaid is a legendary aquatic creature with the upper body of a female human and the tail of a fish.Mermaids appear in the folklore of many cultures worldwide, including the Near East, Europe, Africa and Asia. The first stories appeared in ancient Assyria, in which the goddess Atargatis transforms herself into a mermaid out of shame for accidentally killing her human lover. Mermaids are sometimes depicted as perilous creatures associated with floods, storms, shipwrecks, and drowning. In other folk traditions (or sometimes within the same tradition) they can be benevolent, bestowing boons or falling in love with humans.
Mermaids are associated with the Sirens of Greek mythology and with the Sirenia, a biological order which comprises dugongs and manatees. Historical sightings by sailors may have been the result of misunderstood encounters with these aquatic mammals. Christopher Columbus reported seeing mermaids while exploring the Caribbean, and sightings have been reported in the 20th and 21st centuries in Canada, Israel, and Zimbabwe. The US National Ocean Service stated in 2012 that no evidence of mermaids has ever been found.
Mermaids have been a popular subject of art and literature in recent centuries. Danish author Hans Christian Andersen wrote his popular fairy tale “The Little Mermaid” in 1836. They have subsequently been depicted in opera, paintings, books, films, and comics.
Etymology and related terms
The word mermaid is a compound of the Old Englishmere (sea), and maid (a girl or young woman).The equivalent term in Old English was merewif.They are conventionally depicted as beautiful with long flowing hair.They are sometimes equated with the Sirens of Greek mythology (especially the Odyssey), half-bird femme fatales whose enchanting voices drew sailors onto the rocks of their island, shipwrecking them.
Sirenia is an order of fully aquatic, herbivorous mammals that inhabit rivers, estuaries, coastal marine waters, swamps, and marine wetlands. Sirenians, including manatees and the dugong, have major aquatic adaptations: arms used for steering, a paddle used for propulsion, hind limbs (legs) as two small bones floating deep in the muscle. They appear fat, but are fusiform, hydrodynamic, and highly muscular. Before the mid 19th century, mariners called these animals mermaids.
Sirenomelia, also called “mermaid syndrome”, is a rare congenitaldisorder in which a child is born with his or her legs fused together and reduced genitalia. This condition is about as rare as conjoined twins, affecting one out of every 100,000 live births and is usually fatal within a day or two of birth because of kidney and bladder complications. Four survivors were known as of July 2003.
In 1493 while sailing off the coast of Hispaniola, Christopher Columbus reported seeing three “female forms” which “rose high out of the sea, but were not as beautiful as they are represented”.The logbook of Blackbeard, an English pirate, records that he instructed his crew on several voyages to steer away from charted waters which he called “enchanted” for fear of merfolk or mermaids, which Blackbeard and members of his crew reported seeing.These sighting were often recounted and shared by sailors and pirates who believed that mermaids were bad luck and would bewitch them into giving up their gold and dragging them to the bottom of the sea. Two sightings were reported in Canada near Vancouver and Victoria—one from sometime between 1870 and 1890, the other from 1967.
During World War II in 1943, Japanese soldiers witnessed several mermaids on the shores of the Kei Islands. They reported seeing creatures swimming in the water—and one sighting on the beach—which had pink skin and spikes along their head. These creatures reportedly were about 150 centimeters tall and had limbs and faces that were similar to that of a human but a mouth like a carp. The locals called them Orang Ikan, which means “fish man” in Malay. Several of these sightings occurred and were reported to Sergeant Taro Horiba, who asked the locals about it and learned that they sometimes got caught in the nets. The locals promised to send word to the Sergeant next time one was caught. Eventually, one of the creatures was found dead on the shore and the Sergeant was allowed to examine it. Being convinced, he returned to Japan and tried to convince scientists to go study them but he was never believed.
In August 2009, after dozens of people reported seeing a mermaid leaping out of the water and doing aerial tricks, the Israeli coastal town of Kiryat Yam offered a $1 million award for proof of the mermaid.In February 2012, work on two reservoirs near Gokwe and Mutare in Zimbabwe stopped when workers refused to continue, stating that mermaids had hounded them away from the sites. It was reported by Samuel Sipepa Nkomo, the water resources minister.
Animal Planet has made a documentary about mermaids and founded evidence. They say that all information in the video is faked and it is a hoax, but I still think there is some truth in it so watch it yourself here:
Then we have different kind of “Real” sightings or corpses found after tsunami’s or like that and here is the most realistic of them. Some fishers got mermaid in their net or just another hoax:
Then we have corpse found after tsunami:
And then we have actual footage under water of “real” mermaid compared to human in mermaid costume swimming:
And some more:
Then I shed some information from a site, which deals many of these kind of topics:
A very strange case:
During an expedition in the sea of Gouller, at three hours from Australia, a fishing boat that had caught fire was found, this ship belonged to the Company Bennete of Brazil. This ship had left on August 16 Saturday from the Port of Itajai, Brazil and at two hours of sailing it was detected by the navy of Australia. It is impossible that a ship coming from Itajai, Brazil arrives in two hours to Australia.
This is the story that the journalist Merlon Frougers, of the newspaper Australia Daily News, published and only in a couple of hours of having released the publication, surprisingly all the newspapers were bought by a company called CYRSON, which is a company that belongs to the government of the United States.
Along with the debris there were several bodies of the crew members, but surprisingly they found a burned body that didn’t belong to a member of the crew. Apparently, these pictures were taken in the University of Columbia, where scientists are examining the so strange body that apparently belongs to mythology, but surprisingly in the captain’s logbook the following words were recorded: “They have been following us for more than two days, only few of us have seen them”. James Kollen (technician of the ship) spoke to one of those beings and they want us to follow them to a land that nobody knows, they have given us a map we cannot decipher, it is not written in any known language. The creatures are small, they are beautiful, but at the same time they inspire distrust.”
At the end of the recording it is possible to listen the following thing: “We captured one, but I believe that it was a mistake, we could see a wave in the distance, maybe it’s the biggest wave ever sighted. It might be of 200 meters high from our point of view. I have requested help but the radios don’t work, the GSP system is altered, we don’t know where we are, I have requested the immediate evacuation of Marlin 2, but I don’t believe that we could go further. We are surrounded by those creatures and in the distance we can see the enormous wave that comes at us with all its force, as if it were a person. Particularly I don’t believe in myths and legends, but we are terrified and the crew says that in that wave it’s possible to see a person, it is as if the person came out of the wave. We believe that it is at more than 1000 miles N. May God bless us and forgive us for having captured what we all have called Mermaid”
Marlin 2 were found on August 18 Monday by the captain Peter Houner with the ship “JKP-SYD”, he has not given any interview and at the present time he is in the Military Base of Janner, Australia, he has not been seen ever since along with his crew.
The pictures taken of the bodies during the rescue were immediately destroyed entirely by four people who came in a black helicopter without registration, two people came down exclusively to take the mermaid’s body and all the video cameras, photographs and recordings, they took also parts of the map that were floating on the surface.
Who were these people? Why did they hide evidence? Did these creatures exist in fact if so, how many are there at the present time? Why is the government of the United States always involved in this type of discoveries?
Very difficult topic to research, because of amount of information, disinformation and the fact that the mermaids are so common in folklore and fairytales. But do you believe that people would make mermaid corpses, put them lying on the ground, make video of finding them and then put it to YouTube? If so then some people have too much time in their hands
