In the past few years in Japan, rumors of the existence of ice in Antarctic waters, giant humanoid, called ningyo. Even though these rumors are sometimes referred to a genre of legends, information itself is rather curious.
Opening the whalers
The story begins with the fact that the Internet forum 2channel in Japan was posted a few posts with information that a blogger learned from a friend working at a government research program lives of whales. This program, called JARPA, launched in 1987, when Japan was under pressure from the International Whaling Commission ended in Ceske waters antarkti commercial whaling.
Opponents of JARPA argue that its true purpose – extraction of whale meat for Japanese restaurants and supermarkets. Indeed, within the framework of the rising sun kills in the Antarctic and north-western Pacific Ocean more than 800 whales. And so, disguised as scientists whalers allegedly met in the southern latitudes rusalkopodobnyh huge cetaceans.
In November 2007 edition of Japanese magazine «My», devoted to the study of supernatural phenomena, published an article which contained reflections on the possibility of living in the southern seas unknown giant creatures. Thus, the problem was recognized.
The word "ningyo" in Japanese means "man" and the creation of these, as eyewitnesses, is a big fat whales, anatomically similar to humans. Descriptions ningenov always featured face, instead of legs they have a tail, or whale, or like mermaid, and some reports also referred to his arms and even hands. Those lucky enough to watch ningenov, argue that the length of 20-30 meters.
The skin there is an almost white color, it is devoid of pigmentation. Meetings with these gigantic humanoid seems to occur mostly at night when they are extremely difficult to photograph. In some pictures ningyo resemble an iceberg, but with an increase in their ostensibly photo can be considered in more detail.
Photos "ningyo" in the Atlantic Ocean and in Antarctica.
According to one report, the crew members of a certain ship was observed from the deck of the fact that they were originally taken for a foreign submarine . But when the ship approached her, it became clear that it is an object of irregular shape, and not artificial. The team considered a creature of large size, which quickly disappeared under the water.
Eyewitnesses told to keep quiet?
On the Internet you can find some photos ningenov. Some pictures, reconstructing shape creatures, made by artists from eyewitnesses. Two of extremely low quality video, which is said to have seen the mysterious inhabitants of Antarctica have been posted on YouTube. On one of the pictures – Ning, shot from a great height in the South Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of Namibia. Under water, in shallow water, there really seen a huge silhouette rusalkopodobnoy mascara.
In general, experts estimate published on the internet pictures as unconvincing. It is possible that high-quality photos or does not exist, or, as some think, the Japanese government keeps it secret, not wanting to confuse the general public. Proponents of such a kind of conspiracy theory also claim that the government itself not only categorically unwilling to divulge any information about ningenah, but ordered to remain silent witnesses.
Of course, to make any definite conclusions until more than premature. It may well go on deliberate falsification, since the possibility of a computer program "Photoshop" it easy to back up "urban legend" the most fantastic photos. But it is possible that the Japanese are indeed found in Antarctic waters unknown giant creatures.
And they do not necessarily have to be humanoid, because in the old days, similar to the people saw a man, for example, even in the exterior of manta ray, which is sometimes attributed to including the availability of arms. In any case, if information about the unknown giant cetaceans confirmed, it will be one of the greatest scientific sensation of the XXI century.
