The media made a big deal out of a June 27 statement from the National Ocean Service, a division of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), that “No evidence of aquatic humanoids has ever been found.” Pundits and commentators found this statement something between bizarre and hilarious (as opposed to the CDC’s “no zombies” press push, which was treated as a response to a real issue), and speculation mounted that the statement was meant to refute Animal Planet’s fictional program on the existence or mermaids. NOAA refused to confirm whether their aquatic humanoid statement was related to the Animal Planet program.
The media failed to report that the mermaid page is actually a history lesson on the myth of the mermaid and was placed in the “Ocean Facts” section of the NOS website, part of NOS’s educational content. It was not a press release or an official government announcement. It sits alongside such other pages as “Can penguins fly?” and “What makes the right whale ‘right’?” The postings are made intermittently, apparently in response to questions NOS receives.
But could it be that this web page is part of an elaborate government cover-up more than three thousand years in the making?
According to Robert Temple, author of The Sirius Mystery, the CIA and other U.S. government agencies have been actively involved in suppressing the truth about the existence of amphibious humanoid extraterrestrials from the Sirius star system since at least the late 1960s when Temple began researching them. So careful has this cover-up been that there is no record whatsoever of any government interest in amphibious humanoid extraterrestrials from the Sirius star system. This NOS educational Q-and-A page is the first direct proof that the government is actively suppressing any hint of alien frog-people.
This conspiracy is exceptionally long-lived. It began in ancient times when the conspiracy destroyed all of the records of Babylon to try to suppress the Babylonians’ records of the amphibious humanoids, leaving us only a small mention in Eusebius’ discussion of earlier Greek historians’ discussions of the Babylonian priest Berossus’ summary of those Babylonian records:
Clearly, a buried mermaid-oriented web page on a minor sub-service of an obscure government agency is exactly the kind of proof we need that the government is covering up the existence of amphibious space aliens in our oceans!
Or it would be if you reason like Robert Temple and ancient astronaut theorists.
But just as Berossus’ description of a conjoined man-fish doesn’t match Temple’s own suggestion of amphibious frog people, NOS’s mermaid page is just another educational page on a government website. Don’t believe me? NOAA also has pages for images of the hybrid man-fish. Oops… I wasn’t supposed to tell you that!

My article is satirical, not serious. There are no alien mermaids.

Merpeople don't exist, well, I don't think they do, I'm a bit of a skeptic, though i do love tv series that has them for entertainment purposes so to speak, but other than that, where is the proof? That some people will ask, but the main proof any body would want is well, physical alive proof, nothing more nothing less. that is the only way to make believers out of skeptics like me. But I have well, a theory, that mermaids and mermen and humans are one in the same, but the merpeople decided to give up their merform completely (no way to return to it) to prevent from being hunted, I'm just saying. That is my theory. Because there are some people out there that are mesmerizing, but well none of them are mermaids. But then again, that might have been mermaids/mermen at one point in their lives, but not no longer, because I believe that the merpeople gave up their merform long time ago, when Atlantis went down into the depths of sea. But the only way, I see for a mermaid or mermen's form to return, is by well, make that 3 ways or a combination of ways, An asteriod hitting the earth and activating the worldwide net of supervolcanoes. and then causing a global continental drift, where most humans are wiped completely out. except a few whose duty would be to repopulate the earth. That is the only way.
