So, I know some of you had to watch the program on Animal Planet about mermaids that aired a few days ago. (Or at least I am hoping that some of you have) Interesting stuff huh. Rationally, could there have been a line that evolved in the water rather than on land? I think it's entirely possible, but what about proof. By now we all know that the shows on Animal Planet were hoaxes. But what about all the people throughout history who claim to have seen mermaids? Were they lying, or is it a possibility? I want to hear other people's opinions on the matter. I'm posting this same question in several different places, and I'm just really curious what the majority of people think. I honestly feel that I will get an entirely different answer from my fellow atheists, and I reserve my opinion for later. I don't want to influence anyone from their first instinctual answer. Thank you all for bearing with me and my little experiment.

A similar topic that's already been discussed at great length can be found here:

Yes, we call them whales. At some point in the past, we shared a common ancestor with them.

Did your source says that eventually would arise a King Koopa (WARNING: do not watch if you are epileptic) who would try to bridge the dimensional gap?
