LiptonCambell: I don't think they exist.

Why would a fish develop a half-human shape? What would be the advantages? They certainly would lose alot of speed, making them more prone to being killed. Hair would be useless underwater, and the hairyer species would be more likely be killed, since sharks and other predators would snatch that more often, since it tends to hang around a second after you change direction- and wheres the transitional stages? Wouldn't we find mer-apes?

For an excellent example of why mermaids don't exist, look at giant squids- for thousands of years, we were unable to find a living example of squids- only having filmed one just a few years ago- but we KNEW of their existence, because we found them in the bellies of whales, and their courses would wash ashore from time to time. Are we to believe that NO undersea creature eats them? That NO bodies ever wash ashore?

jimeeze1: Explain then why dolphins and whales that live exclusively in the water have to surface to breath air....scientist have stated that once they were land creatures that found it safer and more prosperous near the shores edge and could like beavers dart into the water for escape....once a ready supply of food was washed ashore and fishing near the bank would make it stay near the waters edge for thousands of years...and eventually treaded farther into the water and eventually spent the majority of their time in the water....evolutionary adaption was the next phase.

LiptonCambell: Oh, I don't disagree that whales and dolphins are mammals. But, as you notice, these creatures lost alot in the transition. They're nearly hairless, if not entirely(aren't they?), they lost all their limbs in place of fins- they originally were a deer like race.

And this all took 50 million years.

The earliest sapiens, by comparison, was less than 5 million years ago. It took whale ancestors 20 million years to develop fins.

ghostgeek: Presuming mermaids existed and that they were mammals then they would have to keep returning to the ocean's surface to breathe. Sightings of them would likely be as common as those of whales and dolphins. In reality, that doesn't seem to be the case, suggesting to me that mermaids don't exist.

jimeeze1: I have seen some compelling documentary of deep sea expeditions and saw what looked like a mermaid or creature that at least resembled a human....it seems almost crazy to consider this but we have only studied a tiny amount of the ocean....no telling what creatures are down there...they have recently discovered a sea predator that was thought extinct millions of years ago; yet they found a corpse that matched the fossils......I wish peeps would stop hoaxing so we could get to the bottom of some of these mysteries....I don't think anyone has decided if they are mammals now or contain gill like apparatus...maybe they like some creatures have both adaptations.....if you haven't seen the documentary of this submergible exploration; you need to check it out....incredible footage!

ghostgeek: I've heard that in 2012, the television channel Animal Planet aired a show claiming to show evidence that mermaids are real. The program was filmed to appear to be a documentary, complete with interviews with "scientists" (paid actors) and phone-camera footage. With only the show's very brief disclaimer in the end credits noting it was a work of fiction.

In the real world there are human-sized marine mammals called manatees and dugongs that many hold were mistaken for mermaids by sailors.

LiptonCambell: Of course they're mammals- they have breasts, don't they?

And on the topic of breasts- does that mean they breastfeed? What other purpose would breasts have?

And if they were in the darkest depths of the ocean, then they would be blind, like all fish down there....

Steady: see a lot of shoes an example of varieties, to provide reasonable assistance and shock absorption, provide a lot more stable performance in activity. Let your foot According to the way of shoes designed for reasonable submitting of mechanics, fit in with a knee injury friends or need to provide more help in [url=http://www.casualtimberland.com]Timberland bottes[/url] , suitable for normal paws. 2. The suspension type: the most common kinds of shoes, excessive emphasis on between support in addition to cushioning and delay tremble performance. Relatively stable far more foot feeling Better, nonetheless its stability is poor, there's a simple decrease in the support stage, is suitable for higher prerequisites for damping friend wearing, ideal for varus foot and normal base [url=http://www.casualtimberland.com]timberland homme[/url] . 3. Cross-country type: relatively exceptional varieties, suitable for general geography conditions are not complicated or road conditions are somewhat poor. General to Asserted this kind of shoes lay certain stress on isolated from lone impact due to the uneven force, so the foot feels much more hard, is not suitable for the trail, etc Temple or the improved road (lack of grip along with badly worn). Domestic monopoly even more see 4. Control type: rare varieties of shoes, normally applicable comfort with smooth feet high. Monopoly on the landmass is quite rare, about to go More professional running shoes shelves may be available in Hong Kong. 5. Light-weight and stable type: this birth of the last two yrs, typically is the famous compilation of kinsei Venus asics, its essence could be to Combined cushioning and stability of a running shoes, the shoes within Brooks and suo kangni all have, just because only Venus is in Home is available, so the most famous. These shoes experimental more thick, such as the form of the Venus generation were released Asics latest k15. Second, how to choose different shoes according to your individual feet Choose running shoes, usually is to shock absorption type or simply select a stable, the most quick and simple to do the test Is the so-called drenched feet Tried. First, place feet soaked in normal water Then dry with a small towel after stepping out on the surface should see this mark an indication You will find three situation [url=http://www.inchtimberland.org]chaussures timberland[/url] Just one your feet before and after the two spot almost no connection, or rarely, you belong to high arches, usually belong to the type varus ft . Need a pair of running shoes shock type. 2 your records is almost look not to come out with arch, explain you are ripped, control what you need is a footwear, is rare in The far east. But the Inside, choose a good pair of stable also is appropriate choice. 3 your footprints presents the c shape, have certain arch of the foot or so, that is you is normal, you need a pair of stable running, have got certain support and extra padding, Also suitable for normal foot shock run. A common slip-up of three, the select and buy shoes Introduces the usual knowledge of the above Believe that all people on how to choose the shoes have the ability to a certain understanding, to introduce below the average person Select several common myths in running shoes 1, running sneakers, as soft as possible Running footwear is definitely not the smooth the good. Running shoes is the most important will be the accurate understanding of human activity technology, because the action of running is relatively single , operating process, the foot of the communicate with process is relatively repetition, stated a little bit more simple, the foot is by just force has a certain reliability, So, running shoes manufacturer can certainly different parts are different, the placement connected with targeted support or damping supplies. so , all good running shoes are not only the whole foot is soft or maybe hard, but in view of the many parts to make the placement of various material, let me Foot properly in the process of sports support modest earthquake, thus protect the knees and spine cyclical stress destruction. 2, training shoes Equals running shoes This could be you in selecting a pair of shoes is suitable for the majority of prone to error, I have came across many many times the so-called education when choosing shoes Practice boots or shoes, also go to running shoes classification. This is totally wrong. Schooling shoes is actually a quite huge concept, they are usually for a a number of birth or is one type of sport. Such as very Following more Nike Max's training shoes, most of them are for sports just like basketball or tennis. Due to the trainers don't usually Can be used as fairly normal shoes and toughness is much smaller, so the safety is much less, few training footwear take high for money Kind, many also increased features of breathable mesh product, it can make a lot of people think instruction shoes is running shoes. Claimed training shoes, Nike series of totally free training shoes have to say is, on the list of most successful training shoes Nike, it turned out hit by mistake Solution is and also the most, Nike free in its structure thought, just in order to activity the leg muscles of some athletes, believe that all bought Good friends will know the Nike free training shoes or boots, in all free inside the shoe has a training manual, several have written above Makes clear, free is actually a pair of suitable for the training of the professional teaching shoes, he normally merely apply to professional athletes or perhaps ordinary people [url=http://www.frderun.com/views/hommes-chaussures-de-running-nike-air-max-90-noir-rouge-15273.html][img]http://www.frderun.com/pic/20144623321588978.jpg[/img][/url]

LiptonCambell: "In 1493, sailing off the coast of Hispaniola, Columbus reported seeing three "female forms" which "rose high out of the sea, but were not as beautiful as they are represented".[44][45] 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 himself and members of his crew reported seeing.[46] These sighting were often recounted and shared by sailors and pirates who believed that mermaids brought 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.[47][48]

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 its existence.[49] 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.[50]

...

In May 2012, a Mermaids: The Body Found, a television docufiction[51] aired on Animal Planet which centered around the experiences of former National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration scientists, showing a CGI recreation of amateur sound and video of a beached mermaid and discussing scientific theories involving the existence of mermaids.[51] In July 2012 in response to public inquiries, the National Ocean Service (a branch of NOAA) stated that "no evidence of aquatic humanoids has ever been found".[52][53]

A year later in May 2013, Animal Planet aired another docu-fiction titled Mermaids: The New Evidence featuring "previously unreleased video evidence",[54][55] including what a former Iceland GeoSurvey scientist witnessed while diving off the coast of Greenland in an underwater submersible. The videos provide two different shots of what appears to be a humanoid creature approaching and touching their vehicle.[56] NOAA once again released a statement saying "The person identified as a NOAA scientist was an actor."[57][58] The actor is separately identified as David Evans[59] of Ontario, Canada.

...



In the middle of the 17th century, John Tradescant the elder created a wunderkammer (called Tradescant's Ark) in which he displayed, among other things, a "mermaid's hand".[60] In the 19th century, P. T. Barnum displayed a taxidermal hoax called the Fiji mermaid in his museum. Others have perpetrated similar hoaxes, which are usually papier-mâché fabrications or parts of deceased creatures, usually monkeys and fish, stitched together for the appearance of a grotesque mermaid. In the wake of the 2004 tsunami, pictures of Fiji "mermaids" circulated on the Internet as supposed examples of items that had washed up amid the devastation, though they were no more real than Barnum's exhibit.[61]"

Again, remember- animal planet has been creating shows that are works of fiction- they wrote it, hired actors to look like fishermen and mermaids, and designed it to look natural.

And there's the animal planet logo in the bottom of the video.

It's entertaining for sure. But not true.
