Do you believe in mermaid?

Mermaid - This picture is a mermaid visualized by man. It is not a real mermaid.

It has been a mystery if mermaid exist or not. I went through the net some days ago to see the pictures of mermaids. And I think it existed long time ago. There were some pictures showing mermaids washed away on the shore.....they seemed real but they are not as beautiful as we think they are. They are like sea creatures with a horrible face. Hope I could see one soon washed away on the shore.

I can only believe if I would meet with one face to face but unfortunately, I haven't been lucky to meet one.

I agree with you. They are just products of the rich imagination of men. They could have multiplied by now and sights of these supposed creatures would be common.

Or they have not multiplied and have disappeared. It is not because we don't see something that it does not exist : every year new animals, sometimes very large, are discovered.

He velentina, This looks like a poll type discussion, and it will be perhaps deleted. Indeed I believe in mermaids, but they are not so beautiful than you think : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RZq3Ox1WusI

Sorry I just wanted to know if mermaids existed or exist. It is probably not a poll type discussion. I did watch the link you mentioned. I can see it is a horrible sea creature with a human resemblance. We have given it a name and a beautiful image. It is like that. When we draw a stag, we show a different image than it really is. so it is the same with mermaids.

hi velentina,The first mermaid stories appeared in ancient Assyria,in which the goddess Atargatis transforms herself into a mermaid out of shame for accidentally killing her human lover.So many stories about mermaids you will find in internet. However,the us national ocean Service Stated in 2012 that no evidence of mermaids has never been found.But i like to listen mermaid stories.

I don't believe in mermaids. They are myths just like Olympus but they have caught the fantasy of both matured and children ever since their "creation" just like batman and Robin etc...

You are right, mermaids are make believe story. It is indeed a myth which is a fantasy. No one has ever seen a mermaid till today.

A mermaid is not a mystery, it is a myth. The idea of mermaids goes back thousands of years. Throughout the ages sailors have reported sights of such creatures, which usually started by them seeing something similar and often exaggerating the event. With the advance of understanding and knowledge of the creatures of the sea the reports gradually diminished, as did the rumours of sea monsters.

Mermaids are a myth sailors use to explain dolphins, which might be what those 'mermaids' you saw pictures-of are.

Some people say,it does exist. If it is not a myth, I hope I can see one.

Mermaids also mythical creature, very much like the unicorn. While there are some water creatures that look like a mermaid and people who spotted it mistaken it as one. For one moment, I can't remember the name of the animal that is most mistaken as a mermaid.

They might exist. We don't know. I believe in supernatural stuff but I am not into it that much. things that different from us might exist it just we never meet them. I don't want to see them either..(^^)

I think mermaids are just a folkloric fantasy. But I do wish that they really do exist!! That would be so fun. ;-)

hi valentina! i am not sure if mermaid are real or not when i was browsing the tv i saw a mermaid skeleton which they confirm that maybe it is a mermaid but for me im not satisfy with that to believe that mermaid is exist, for me i believe in the saying that to see is to believe.

I would like to believe in mermaids and mermen, but I would prefer to think of them as attractive looking creatures.

Hello velentina, I don't believe on Mermaids they are just an imagination of human beings. I doubt if someone has seen them but in fairy tales they are told to be very beautiful.Are they?.

I think that a mermaid is a beautiful fantasy but purely a mythicsal creature. Until someone can prove to me without a dhadow of a doubt that mermaids exist, they will live only in fiction.

I don't believe that mermaids exist right now, but I don't rule out the possibility that they existed at some time in the past.

There are good looking mermaids also.But I don't know if they can breath out of water.I will have to keep it my aquarium,if I caught one.But if they are half human,then they can breath out of water.What do you think?What do they eat...will they eat fish food?
