US Government officially denies existence of mermaids!!
In an astounding move, the United States government has officially denied the existence of mermaids. The statement came from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), a US Government agency that’s part of the Department of Commerce. On their official website, they have a page about “facts” about mermaids. Mermaids, the creature that is said to be half human (the torso), and half fish (the legs/tail), have occupied the collective conscious of the world for centuries through legends, drawings, and folklore. The NOAA page essentially outlines their belief that although mermaids have been in mankind’s history since the “dawn of” the “species” – according to their site “no evidence of aquatic humanoids has ever been found”, further, in answer to the question as to why then there are so many tales of the creatures is: “that’s a question best left to historians, philosophers, and anthropologists.”
This bizarre move by a government agency begs the question, why in the world would a federal agency so publicly denounce something which many people do not even think exist? There is some speculation that part of this is in response to the Animal Planet documentary entitled: Mermaids, The Body Found which is fairly convincing in its evidence and proof of the existence of real mermaids, and makes a real case for the existence of the so-called fictional mermaids. In anticipation of the controversy, Animal Planet has led with the following editor’s note: This two-hour special is science fiction based on some real events and scientific theory.

Could this be the reason that the government is officially claiming that mermaids don’t exist? Simply because a cable station made a TV show? Since when does the government come out and denounce anything that they think is fiction?
Or could the real reason be because they came fairly close to the truth? Perhaps the government knows that mermaids do in fact exist, and if the truth about so-called “mythical” creatures being real became widespread there would be chaos. People would question everything they believed in. What would come next? One thing is clear, if mermaids (or werewolves or vampires or any other so-called “mythical” creature) were real, the government could never let people know about them for fear of the chaos that would ensue.
The other thing that is clear, is that when someone denies something vehemently, it usually means that you’re not too very far from the truth. As the famous quote goes “Methinks thou doth protest too much.”
