What the NOAA says about the existence of mermaids
This week, I decided to investigate Animal Planet's “documentary” The Body Found since there is a lot of information about it online. I have watched a couple shows and I can see why people are totally into it because the information seems pretty legit, however I don’t think that The Body Found is a good source to reference. The program prompted public inquiries to NOAA, (National Oceanic and Atmosphere Administration) which more commonly deals with questions about weather, water and solar storms. "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."
