Just wait...next week the History Channel will have a documentary on how mermaids are actually aliens and may have helped Columbus discover America ;-)
If Ancient Aliens can be on the History channel, then mermaids on Discovery it is!
Lets stab them.
This is very misleading and dishonest on their part! I watched the documentary,they presented it as fact,not as fiction.If you have a tv channel that is supposed to air documentaries that are to be taken seriously,then you shouldn't get away with hoaxes like this!Perhaps they should be fined.
Money, Money, Money. A few cheap laughs to a group of drunk college students is still viewers nevertheless, and companies want said viewers to see their product. Why they chose this subject over something such Higgs Boson? Well, that's the fault of the masses who would rather watch a phony documentary about an anthropomorphize fish, rather than read a book or stand up to the channel executives and refuse to watch such garbage. I'm as much to blame, for I've just watched a rerun that they played, while my time was wasted, atleast I got to laugh at the expense of an avatar looking sea apes as it gets eaten by megalodon. As a parting note to all the "sea ape" theorists out there, if there was a precursor to australopithecus afarensis, it would be a HUGE deal and would rock the scientific world. The mere gesture that this creature was capable of tool making, intelligent communication, and opposable thumbs, is ludacris at best because this would suggest devolution rather than evolution as archeulian tools did not come about until homo habilis (sp?). All and all, this documentaries best attribute was that it was laughable, and should never be taken as fact.
Welcome to the age of Fox News, reality TV, Walmart, and McDonald's. According to the National Science Foundation one in five Americans still believes the sun revolves around the earth. Obviously it pays more money if you can lead them around by the nose.
