A very well put together spin on the hypotheses of aquatic evolution, “Mermaid: The Body Found”, a recently aired documentary on Animal Planet, makes you wonder if you’re swimming alone.
Presented to the public with vibrant colors, a vast array of inconspicuous sounds, and imagery of the fantasy we’ve all believed in since our first viewing of "The Little Mermaid," this documentary is captivating.
As some put it, the docu-fiction film written by Charlie Foley, opens up with factual evidence about the ventures of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) team in 1997 to one of the largest whale beachings in history and the sound recording, also known as the “bloop” that could possibly change current history.
Their discovery was unusual, a recording of diverse, abnormal sounds that were not the usual chitchat between whales. For me, the sound was a discordant collection of what seemed to be thousands of women screaming.
Two scientists, members of the NOAA team at the time and currently doctors, are keen believers in the existence and evolution of our humanoid, gilled brethren. Deeply believing that the military is ‘covering up’ the mermaids, much like the aliens at Roswell, they relentlessly follow and meticulously evaluate the integrity of the military and their ‘top-secret’ demeanor when it comes to operations.
“The feeling was like something out of Orwell,” Dr. Paul Robertson, one of the two scientists with NOAA, said. “This was Big Brother. They were rewriting history. Basically writing this creature out of existence.”
This docu-fiction is inspiring conspirators to delve into a new faction of government cover up theories. Only furthering questions of why the government does not want us to co-exist with our extraordinary friends.
Looking at comments underneath the full-length video on YouTube, thedub4 laid it out clearly for us:
“Mermaids don’t want to be found. They are scared of us, but the question is why? The documentary shows mermaids and their history of existence decades ago. So what happened to make them so afraid of us? Could it be genocide? What is the government hiding? So much for our so called ‘justice system.'”
In fact, this documentary does end with the same theory. Robertson claims that we (humans) have never been able to co-exist with our similar species, so that it is just best to quit the search and let them carry on.
I don’t think that the ranges of the situation are so black and white; I believe in the grey area. The theory of the aquatic evolution of our ancestors was cast in such a scientific, plausible way utilizing a multifarious collection of real-life, genuine examples that for a brief second, I believed that we could evolve ourselves into aquatic beings.
No need to worry about December 2012 now, it is a definite, we will survive!
I’m sitting on the fence with this one. The believability of their existence is based on your own interpretations of objective evidence, but to me, I say, keep calm and swim on, mermaids.
