Amanda Shore highlights a two-hour Animal Planet special headlined, Mermaids: The Body Found. The show makes a pretty convincing case for the existence of human-like aquatic mammals they call mermaids. The first piece of evidence found is a sound “bloop” from an unknown species:
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.
The researchers further investigations take them to South Africa and another mass whale beaching where they find, in the gut of a shark, the remains of what appears to be a mermaid:
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. 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.
I couldn’t see why the Navy would want to supress evidence of this new creature, even if they were trying to hide their SONAR experiments. I found the entire show on viooz.com entertaining. If you get a chance to watch the progam, stop by and let me know if you think mermaids exist.
