So you want to know… Are mermaids real? Well, some believe they are! There have been stories and myths for years, that human-like creatures have been living in the world’s oceans since before the dawn of man.. There has also been a great deal of research recently on the possibility of such creatures! So maybe the important question is not, are mermaids real, but… How have they been hiding from us?
Are Mermaids Real: The Origin Of The Myth
The origins of mermaid legends come from Syria around 1000 B.C. where the goddess Atargatis dove into the sea to take the form of a fish, but the powers that be would not allow her to give up her great beauty, so they only allowed her bottom half to became a fish keeping her top half in human form.
As most myths do… this tale became altered over the years, only to be found in later tales such as Homer’s “The Odyssey.” In this tale, the mermaid like creatures, known as Sirens, would lure sailors to their deaths.
Today’s mermaids are usually seen as gentle, beautiful creatures that help those that are stranded at sea. Much of how we see mermaids today can be credited to the most famous tale in all of mermaid mythology – Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Little Mermaid” and the Disney movie of the same name that followed. These tales have helped to re-shape the myth of the mermaid and have created a stereotype that will not likely be changed in the eyes of children and adults alike!
