Mermaids appear in Images , tales of mermaids .They are presented in form of half-human, half-fish.Half woman -half fish images are a common description of mermaids.
Though National Ocean Service,a US government scientific agency recently declared that there is no evidence that mermaids exist.Discovery Channel is set to present Mermaids: The Body Found to examine whether or not mermaids are real. The show is based on some real events and scientific theory,Discovery news say
“The theory of ‘aquatic ape’ mentioned in the program is real and has been studied for decades,” says Charlie Foley, creator, writer and executive producer of the show, and SVP of Development. “Many events in the show have occurred — i.e. the whale beachings, Navy experimental sonar testing, The Bloop…”
The Bloop is a powerful, ultra-low frequency sound detected by NOAA in 1997. No one has been able to figure out yet what makes the sound; it remains a complete mystery. With so much still unknown about the world’s oceans — 95 percent of which remain unexplored — perhaps then the existence of mermaids isn’t totally implausible.
“I believe in possibilities and the power of imagination,” says Charlie, “that we haven’t found everything out there yet. In the past two decades alone, we just learned about two species of whales that we never knew existed.”
That doesn’t necessarily mean mermaids exist, but “if polar bears evolved from the brown bear,” asks Charlie, “isn’t it possible that a mermaid, which was reported in disparate civilizations for ages, evolved from a human-like creature that retreated into the water?”
