Animal Planet's Mermaid Documentary Hoax

About a week ago, my mother and I sat down and watched a really entertaining documentary on Animal Planet called Mermaids: The Body Found.
It was very entertaining and even chilling at times (note: I don't get creeped out easily) but you could tell that it was all 100% reenactment. They try to trick you with the interviews by using other people to play the person being interviewed, like a real documentary would.

I am absolutely against their pushing this as a factual documentary. Did they warn viewers that it was actually all speculative? I didn't see a notice anywhere. That's very shady of them. And to prove my point further, they created these idiotic fake websites and made it look like DOJ had seized the site. How pathetic! This is the Fourth Kind all over again. Here's their site:
Anyone who knows anything about HTML codes will see that the DOJ notice is also a fake (is that even LEGAL!?) It's hosted on their own server and this isn't how DOJ operates with websites.

Put more eloquently by columnist Brad Newsome of The Syndey Morning Herald:
"The version that I saw doesn't even do viewers the courtesy of admitting that it's fake until the credits are about to roll," and dismissed the "aquatic ape" theory, a real hypothesis first proposed in 1942 and presented in the show, as "rather fringe." He also wrote, "People love that sort of stuff, I get it. But it belongs on more tabloid channels that don't have any pretensions of scientific or historical credibility."
Don't misunderstand, as surely some probably do. Obviously the avatar looking "mermaids" were computer created. Also, it's obvious that the cell footage is recreated. That's not my point. The point that they would make up scientists, fake interviews and then do reenactments of something that was already fake is just pathetic.

Animal Planet and anyone else who partakes in making fake documentaries and trying to fool people immediately loses credibility. Do you know of anyone who enjoys being made a fool of? I don't. How arrogant of them. I wonder what other fake documentary they've got up their sleeves. It was fun to watch though. Maybe they should just stick to making  mockumentaries.

This mockumentary would have done very well to air on SyFy... seriously. For a moment I forgot I was watching Animal Planet, and thought I was watching SyFy. Also, I would have been far less peeved.


Zombie Apocalypse: Cannibalistic Attacks are on the Rise!

You all in the States probably heard about the gruesome attack of a 65-year-old homeless man (Ronald Poppo) in Miami who had 75% of his face literally eaten off by a crazed man by the name of Rudy Eugene, supposedly high on "bath salts." I just shrugged and thought it was an isolated incident. Then I was looking through a local news website and saw that only a few days ago, another man admitted to a cannibalistic murder of his housemate in Maryland. I must admit that for about a month now, I refused to watch CNN or any other national news and just allow myself local news every now and again. (My stress level has gone down three-fold by the way!) So you've all probably heard about this incident in Joppatowne. Apparently this guy even kept some human meat in a safe place for a later snack session:

[A brother] explained to the detective how he had come across two metal tins covered by a blanket in the basement laundry room of Agyei-Kodie’s Joppatowne residence. He opened the tins and found a human head and two hands. [url]
What is going on here!? Drugs? Mind control? ...Zombie Apocalypse?

The mother of the Miami attacker said something I found interesting: “That wasn’t him, that was his body but it wasn’t his spirit.  Somebody did this to him." This is Miami, folks. Maybe she's referring to Voodoo. I have some working knowledge of Hoodoo which is not the same but Voodoo is a littler harder to research. You have to shift through a lot of fluff books written by New Ager (mainly Caucasian) who don't have the relevant Haitian Voodoo background, rather safe middle-class suburban upbringing and have questionable motives (money, fame, cultural appropriation, etc.). Their background no doubt clouds their understanding of what it's really about. It's like people from America who are fascinated by Japan, for example, and suddenly present themselves as being an expert and knowing more about Japanese culture than Japanese people because they lived there for just a few years and learned the language.

Another gruesome attack happened in California with a lot of the same themes: the devil, drugs, ripping our body parts.
A U.S. cage fighter ripped out the heart of his training partner while he was still alive after becoming convinced he was possessed by the devil, it was alleged today.
Jarrod Wyatt also cut out Taylor Powell's tongue and ripped off most of his face in a brutal assault that police said looked like a scene from a horror film, officers said.
They claim they found the 26-year-old standing naked over his friend's body with parts, including an eyeball, strewn around the blood splattered room in Klamath, California.
Wyatt allegedly told police he had drunk a cup of tea spiked with hallucinogenic mushrooms and became convinced Powell was possessed.
According to an autopsy Powell, 21, bled to death after his heart was ripped out.

‘My client was trying to silence the devil,’ said James Fallman.
Let's look at the side of effects of (1) taking bath salts, (2) demon oppression and (3) having voodoo worked on you. {Perhaps the last two might be one and the same?}

(1) Bath salts side effects: 
“Bath Salts” are known to produce side effects similar to Meth and Cocaine such as elevated heart rate, hypertension, irritability, extreme paranoia, delusions of super-human strength and invincibility, hallucinations, suicide, aggressive and violent behavior, and possibly even murder.

(2) Demonic Oppression side effects:
  1. abnormal, irrational fear
  2. abnormal, irrational anxiety
  3. abnormal, irrational loneliness
  4. lack of self control
  5. conflicts with authority figures
  6. aimlessness; the feeling that life is void of any meaning or purpose
  7. depression that is not physiologically induced.
  8. outburst of hatred
  9. violent behavior
  10. loss of the fear of God
  11. selfish ambition (appetite for power)
  12. irrationality, inability to detect or correct contradictions or other fallacious reasoning 
Some causes of Demonic Oppression:
  1. sexual immorality with demon oppressed or possessed people
  2. pornography
  3. preoccupation with UFO phenomena; attempts to contact extraterrestrial beings
  4. escapism through thrill-seeking, sci-fi, soap operas or some other addicting hobby/activity
  5. any contact with demon oppressed or possessed people that threatens the demons
  6. wrong use of drugs and alcohol
  7. wrong use of herbs
  8. hedonism: pursuit if entertainment and or body pleasure
  9. participation in false religions or cults
  10. rejection of what is known and understood to be true
  11. preoccupation with occultic power, occultic revelation, psychic phenomena
  12. rebellion against authority
  13. seeking or giving consent to occultic revelation or occultic power
  14. authority figures' acceptance of Satanic influence
  15. dating relationships or close friends with demon possessed people
  16. poor self-image
  17. anger against God and others
  18. possession o (known or unknown) of occultic games, records, tapes, books, pictures, charms, tools, etc... (This includes the Ouija Board)
  19. persistent jealousy
  20. bad temper or stubbornness
  21. preoccupation with violence devoid of justice
  22. mediation on anything other than God's truth
  23. chanting or other cultic/occultic forms of worship
  24. prolonged sleeplessness  [source]
 (3) Some symptoms that a Voodoo curse has been places on you:

  • You dream of dead bodies and horrible looking people who want to kill you in your dream
  • You dream of snakes & dirty places
  • Waking up suddenly in fear with shortness of breath
  • Dreaming of falling from Heights
  • Dreaming of Snakes, Scorpions & Spiders
  • You see black dots or smoke flying all over
  • Substance Abuse
  • Tightness and heaviness specially in shoulders and chest
  • Extreme hunger in case entities have taken charge of your body
  • Constant headache
  • Your complexion darkens

    My conclusion: Although it would be fascinating/intriguing to think the Miami attack was a voodoo curse, I think this and the California incident was brought on by drugs. I am not sure about the Maryland case, though. A senior military instructor at his school said that he was a Virginia Tech waiting to happen. So it seems that the main concern here is mental health.
    A copy of the December police report, obtained by The Baltimore Sun, says Alexander Kinyua was at least temporarily barred from campus and kicked out of the school's ROTC program after punching holes in the walls of the cadet computer lab.

    Two officers concluded that he "did not display any behavior that would warrant a psychological evaluation at this time," but one called a counseling center emergency number, according to the report. When they got no response, they released Kinyua to his father, a physics professor at the university.

    A month after the December 10 outburst, Kinyau stood up at a forum attended by senior university staff members and mentioned human sacrifice. Some students felt that officials should have at least asked Kinyua what he meant by the topi
    What is this world turning into? I think people are so tense. Time is accelerating and you will only see a rise in unspeakable crimes against humanity. People are on edge as it feels like we are tightly wound coil. There will be a breaking point. I'm not trying to scare anyone. All you need to do is look at the news to see the degradation of our society. And some are unbelievably blind or aloof about it. As long as they make their money or get whatever they want, they don't care if babies are being ritually sacrifices, children are being molested and humans are being eaten by other humans. I really believe all signs point to the end being near. not the end of the world, but society as we know it. We haven't reached the complete breakdown point yet, but we are right at the door, I believe. Our great society will fall much like the Roman empire. We are 200+ years old and many great nations and empires fall around this point. As Americans, I think our society and especially our government is too arrogant. We will not always be at the top and when that day comes many people who hate us will rejoice. I pray I'm long gone before that happens!

    Found a great thread with a LONG running list of cannibalistic incidents. It's really mind blowing, you guys:
