Re: Real mermaid: A scientific hypothesis.
Now it looks like the alleged seizing of these mermaid websites is itself a hoax.
I don't necessarily believe the "mermaids are not real" statement by the government, but in this case I tend to believe that they didn't really shut down these websites. I think when they shut down a site, it just disappears -they don't use a melodramatic "seized by Homeland Security" banner that only makes everyone wonder what they are trying to suppress.
This whole mermaid story is very strange. The documentary, or mockumentary was done in a realistic style, and shown on networks that usually show scientific shows rather than fiction. For a drama, it wasn't very polished or suspenseful. There seems to have been the intention of making people think seriously about this issue, whether the film itself is authentic or not.
