the very essence of the strange and unknown boils down to encounters between Man and Mystery, without the baggage of belief. Some of us have seen the windmill blink. We will never be the same.

Merman Oannes, of Babylonian lore, is credited with teaching Babylonians how to write, build cities and churches, and how to establish a government. In Greek mythology Triton is the son of Sea-King Poseidon, and he could control the waves of the sea by blowing on his conch shell. He is also credited with helping lead the Argonauts from Tritonis, a massive salt lake in the Libyan desert, back to the sea for a voyage home.

Dagon, a merman from Philistine culture, was a fertility god who earned a biblical mention in I Samuel, Chapter 5, when the Philistines take the Ark of the Covenant from the Israelites and store amid images of the merman in a Dagon Temple.

In Danish culture, a merman known as The Neck patrolled local waters preventing boating accidents and drownings by guiding boaters away from dangerous by making bird calls.

In Finnish mythology Mermen had the ability to heal the sick, remove curses, and create powerful potions. Finnish mermen also had the power to destroy civilizations.

Despite these heroics, mermen don’t receive a fraction of the cultural buzz of mermaids.
