It's not real, sweetie. It's just an ad campaign for the Animal Planet series. The website is part of the ad. Most movie makers do that, now. Like when The Dark Knight, and Blair Witch came out.

it's against the law to use the DHS seal if you're not the DHS

I doubt discovery (the discovery channel) would do that

BECAUSE

[link to www.imdb.com]

it is a mockumentary (fictionary), that is copyrighted

and if another site publishes it, it can get taken down for infringement

it is fictional also

however please look into navy testing of sonic weapons if you want to, just dont use this film as proof

DISCOVERY's $1000/hr legal department would never allow a publicly traded company to infringe the law so blatantly.

Marketing ploy?
Since "legal" would review all marketing material for any potential lawsuit in a publicly traded company, they would quickly discover the serious violation of the law and order the page or site removed.

So 100% certainly not a marketing ploy.

Source code means nothing.

You need to understand Government is always behind the secrets. Afraid of the public knowing the truth that there are things out there besides us. If mermaids are real it makes us question about religion and evolution which would, cause a rip in society itself. Knowing that they plan to eliminate the evidence with "Sonar testing" killing whales and other creatures with it, before it reaches out to the public fearing that if known to the world would make us all question our existence. They are just going to keep covering up with bullshit that they feed the public. Every time the public requires proof they destroy or hide it.

Here's how I see it:
King-government
queen-president
knights-military
guards-policemen
and us..
peasants

Were the bitches to their kingdom. No matter what kind of nation you are dictator or democracy there's always a king that sits above us and tells us what we should and should not so or else we get executed tortured or sent to jail. You think this is a free nation think again.

Re: Um, why is believeinmermaids.com seized by DHS???
The site has not really been seized. Further, there probably never was a site, the only page to exist at that location is the one that says it has been seized. Its propaganda or advertising or whatever you wanna call it, just as the actors in the program were never scientists, or involved in any research. Watch the show, and google the scientists names as they show up. Also, go to iMDB and enter the name of the program. When the show first aired, it was presented as a real show. Now, when you look at the directory, it is listed as science fiction. For further understanding, read about the radio show, War of the Worlds. It will explain a lot about our modern media. Have a nice day!!

If they had done this with the FBI seal in the image, there would have been trouble.

the seizer is real, its the same page they put up when the shut down casinos and pirate sites,so if the mermaids arent real the sonic weapons might be, or the govt is just pissed at discovery for making them out to be evil mermaid killers to the entire world.

From a blog I read,apparently, that site is supposedly "blocked" by the DHS for publicity reasons. It's to make it look like the government is upset about the "information" that was released in the Mermaids: The Body Found documentary and that it actually might be true. So, I guess it's not. It's fake.

The people who don't believe the possibility of mermaids you are all idiots. Yes the government covers up shit and yes they persuade you to believe nothing is true you are all in denial its not the fact that animal planet is saying they exist they are trying to give u facts since when have u seen something fake on animal planet?...regardless real or hoaxed everyone automatically thinks its not real that's exactly what the government wants. You are all suckers you are all pawns! Open your eyes! Aliens are another form of life the government has kept from us yet there we here of sitings all over the world. You think there isn't life beyond us? They discovered a planet not long ago similar to earth you think there isn't life on it? The earth is located in the milky way galaxy one of many galaxies you think other creatures don't exist? Regardless real or not mermaids the body found made a very good point even if you take away the videos and images and sounds if that is what everyone is doubting everything can be edited nowadays everyone is talking about the videos and website and sounds images all being fakethe theories and facts they provided talked about. Stop worrying about the website it can be real or fake. The truth is the govt does cover up a lot of shit we the people are not supposed to know...shit that can change our lives as a whole forever. Mind boggling shit that can drive u crazy and that real. Wake up people and talk about important shit!.

 Quoting: ^TrInItY^


I thought that was true for TSA? I never saw anything about DHS...
 Quoting: Laura Bow


I would assume that IMPERSONATING a government official by using official seals of ANY government department without proper authorization would be criminal and is likely to be a FELONY / Indictable offence.

DISCOVERY Channel's legal department would be completely aware of the laws regarding impersonation and would 100% never allow it.

A government department would certainly have the Justice Dept prosecute any offenders using their seal within the timeframe allotted by the statute of limitations.

Is it fake by that criteria?
Certainly not.

Web source code means absolutely nothing as to whether or not a seizure is "real" or is a case of impersonation.

DHS and ICE would likely have several variations of their notice which would function differently according to their needs for each environment that they encounter.

Re: Um, why is believeinmermaids.com seized by DHS???
If you watch the show on animal planet it is put together in sequences, there trying to give the civilian public hints an clues, so's folks can bring hard facts out before any government agents or government armed forces and or controlled private contractors seize the evidential proof yeah it is weird that at the end of the show they put "Oh by the way, we can't prove any of this cause its been stolen". The scenes showing mermaids is done by 3D computer graphics, these images were taken from pictures and drawings from those interviewed to give you a image of what they actually look like if you ever encounter them. The possibilities are there it is just a matter of in the area at the perfect time, just like deep sea diving to the titanic and finding brand new species we thought were extinct. Come on folks use your heads were smart humans.
