Fact of the Day: Sirens

In Greek mythology, Sirens were creatures that looked like beautiful women who lured sailors to their doom with their voices and music. When Christianity became the main religion in Europe, belief in real sirens was discouraged. However some Christians believed they existed. A Catholic priest in the 17th century was certain that Noah had made a spot for them on the ark.
