Are Mermaids real? Federal Goverment says no. Sure, we believe Wednesday, 07.04.2012, 12:56pm (GMT-5)
Federal Government say that Mermaids are not real but shut down websites showing the video footages, why? sure, we believe you. But wait, it gets stranger from here.
Discovery Channel keeps mouth shut, especially regarding of their video footage of Mermaid: the Body Found on the beach.
There are other video footage taken by amateurs who were surfing the sea gardens, and well, they look real to me, but it's up to you to believe it or not.

Below is the video footage of Mermaid: The Body Found by Animal Planet / Discovery Channel.
And these excerpts are taken from Christopher Columbus (the founder of America)'s journal;
â€˜El dÃa pasado, cuando el
Almirante iba al RÃo del Oro, dijo que vido tres sirenas que salieron
bien alto de la mar, pero no eran tan hermosas como las pintan, que en
alguna manera tenian forma de hombre en la cara. Dijo que otras veces
las habÃa visto en la costa de Guinea, donde se coge la manegueta.â€™
translated into English;
On the previous day [8 Jan 1493], when the Admiral went to the Rio del Oro [on Haiti], he said he quite distinctly saw three mermaids, which rose well out of the sea; but they are not so beautiful as they are said to be, for their faces had some masculine traits. The Admiral says that he had seen some, at other times, on the coast of Guinea, where you find manequeta.
One fact, to be exact: In 1997 two NOAA scientists recorded a bizarre sound in the Pacific. Called "The Bloop," the sound was never identified.
"After the show ran, people were talking about mermaids a little more. It started popping up on social media," said spokeswoman Keeley Belva. "It was an interesting topic, so we posted a short explanation. Maybe it will entice people to visit the NOAA.gov website."
All well and good.
But what about the seized domain?
"It's a hoax," said Ross Feinstein, spokesman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, which oversees the Department Homeland Security.
A look at the code behind the page reveals it's still held by the parent company of the Animal Planet channel, Discovery Communications, which bills itself as "The World's #1 Nonfiction Media Company."
A spokesman for Discovery did not immediately return calls.
Below is the excerpt from NOAA's website about the existence of Mermaids;
"Mermaids - those half-human, half-fish sirens of the sea - are legendary sea creatures chronicled in maritime cultures since time immemorial. The ancient Greek epic poet Homer wrote of them in The Odyssey. In the ancient Far East, mermaids were the wives of powerful sea-dragons, and served as trusted messengers between their spouses and the emperors on land. The aboriginal people of Australia call mermaids yawkyawks - a name that may refer to their mesmerizing songs.
"The belief in mermaids may have arisen at the very dawn of our species. Magical female figures first appear in cave paintings in the late Paleolithic (Stone Age) period some 30,000 years ago, when modern humans gained dominion over the land and, presumably, began to sail the seas. Half-human creatures, called chimeras, also abound in mythology - in addition to mermaids, there were wise centaurs, wild satyrs, and frightful minotaurs, to name but a few.
"But are mermaids real? No evidence of aquatic humanoids has ever been found. Why, then, do they occupy the collective unconscious of nearly all seafaring peoples? That's a question best left to historians, philosophers, and anthropologists.
Below are two more videos about the appearance of Mermaids caught on video camera.
Watch something swimming very fast on the right bottom corner of the Japan Tsunami Wave that probably reveals the existence of Mermaids.
So, what do you think? do you think Mermaids are real? or just a hoax?
