More About Mermaids

Posted by: Nick Redfern on July 8th, 2012

The Canadian office of the Center for Fortean Zoology has a new post up on the topic of Mermaids – a subject back in the news because of a certain TV show that aired recently, and which – incredibly – some people actually took seriously, rather than recognizing it for what it was meant to be: an entertaining spoof.

Anyway, here’s what CFZ-Canada has to say about these creatures of the deep. Or, rather, alleged creatures of the deep.

    Interesting. I’ve said before, mermaids baffle me but intrigue me. I’ve read all kinds of accounts, and theories. It has been theorized that Atlanteans had conducted genetic experiments that created things like mermaids (it was also said that there was a time of monsters before mankind–think this was Edgar Cayce, but I have been known to mistake a thing now and again).

    There was a really good sci-fi story from a Russian author back in Stalin’s day who wrote about mermaids being a genetic creation too.

    HOWEVER, the crap that was on the TV was just a hokey over extended “Lost Tapes” episode. What ticked me about it was the fact that the producers tried to put it forth as a “documentary” and only had one line at the end that said, “oh this is just all made up.”

    Mermaids permeate most folklores in some form or another, which says to me that people were seeing something. I don’t know if it was a blonde with a fish tail sitting on a rock and combing her long locks, but people have seen something…
