Shasta, in northern California. It is certainly not, as it implies, a stenographic record of a real conversation that took place three-quarters of a century before. In about scientists suggested this ancient land bridge connecting Madagascar with Africa and India.
Three Worlds Lost: The History of Mu, Lemuria, and Atlantis
A drop of meters in the relative level of the sea would produce it. It was offered as an explanation for the distribution of the lemurs and other relatives of the monkeys, and thus got the name Lemuria. But authorities do not now consider this lost continent a scientific necessity. It is, in fact, hinted that Plato is writing what we should call a science-fiction story to illustrate his political theories.
The strange ending of Critias may be significant. Perhaps old Plato lost interest, or perhaps he had plot trouble. He started out to show how his Republic would work in practice, and then brought in the gods, which involved him in hopeless logical difficulties about free will and divine justice.
So maybe he puzzled a while and gave it up. Natural History Magazine. Departments Features Samplings Nature. Picks from the Past: May Lost Continents Ever since the days of the Greeks, people have tried to prove that thriving civilizations once existed on huge islands that have since sunk beneath the sea.

Overweighed Europeans. More Information. It was subsequently popularized as an alternative term for the hypothetical land of Lemuria by James Churchward , who asserted that Mu was located in the Pacific Ocean before its destruction. The place of Mu in literature has been discussed in detail in Lost Continents by L. Sprague de Camp. Geologists dismiss the existence of Mu and the lost continent of Atlantis as physically impossible, arguing that a continent can neither sink nor be destroyed in the short period of time asserted in legends and folklore and literature about these places.
Brasseur believed that a word which he read as Mu referred to a land that had been submerged by a catastrophe. In our journey westward across the Atlantic we shall pass in sight of that spot where once existed the pride and life of the ocean, the Land of Mu, which, at the epoch that we have been considering, had not yet been visited by the wrath of Human, that lord of volcanic fires to whose fury it afterward fell a victim.
The description of that land given to Solon by Sonchis , priest at Sais ; its destruction by earthquakes , and submergence, recorded by Plato in his Timaeus , have been told and retold so many times that it is useless to encumber these pages with a repetition of it. VI, p. Le Plongeon claimed that the civilization of ancient Egypt was founded by Queen Moo, a refugee from the land's demise.
Other refugees supposedly fled to Central America and became the Maya.
Mu, as an alternative name for a lost Pacific Ocean continent previously identified as the hypothetical Lemuria the supposed place of origin for lemurs , was later popularised by James Churchward — in a series of books, beginning with Lost Continent of Mu, the Motherland of Man ,  re-edited later as The Lost Continent Mu Churchward claimed that "more than fifty years ago", while he was a soldier in India , he befriended a high-ranking temple priest who showed him a set of ancient "sunburnt" clay tablets, supposedly in a long lost "Naga-Maya language" which only two other people in India could read.
Churchward convinced the priest to teach him the dead language and decipher the tablets by promising to restore and store the tablets for Churchward was an expert in preserving ancient artifacts. The tablets were written in either Burma or in the lost continent of Mu itself according to the high priest. The edition states that "all matter of science in this work are based on translations of two sets of ancient tablets": the clay tablets he read in India, and a collection of 2, stone tablets that had been uncovered by William Niven in Mexico.
The tablets begin with the creation of Earth, Mu, and the superior human civilization Naacal by the seven commands of the seven superlative intellects of the Seven-headed serpent Narayana. This creation story dismisses the theory of evolution. His image of a perfect human is the white version of Jesus Christ.

At the time of its demise, about 12, years ago, Mu had 64,, inhabitants and seven major cities, and colonies on the other continents. The 64 million inhabitants were separated as ten tribes that followed one government and one religion. Churchward claimed that the landmass of Mu was located in the Pacific Ocean, and stretched east—west from the Marianas to Easter Island , and north—south from Hawaii to Mangaia. According to Churchward the continent was supposedly 5, miles east to west and over 3, miles from north to south.
That is bigger than the continent South America.
The Land of Mu
The continent was believed to be flat with massive plains, vast rivers, rolling hills, large bays, and estuaries. Eventually Mu "was completely obliterated in almost a single night":  : 44 after a series of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions , "the broken land fell into that great abyss of fire" and was covered by "fifty millions of square miles of water. Once the gases were empty after the explosion they collapsed on themselves causing the island to crumble and sink.
Churchward claimed that Mu was the common origin of the great civilizations of Egypt, Greece, Central America, India, Burma and others, including Easter Island, and was in particular the source of ancient megalithic architecture.
Lost Lands Found by Scientists
As evidence for his claims, he pointed to symbols from throughout the world, in which he saw common themes of birds, the relation of the Earth and the sky, and especially the Sun. Other pieces of evidence for his claims, Churchward looked to the Holy Bible and found that through his own translations, Moses was trained by Naacal brotherhood in Egypt. Assyria mis-translated when writing and misplaced the garden of Eden. Churchward makes references to the Ramayana epic, a religious text of Hindu attributed to sage and historian Valmiki. Churchward translated Yucatan ruins that tell of an origin land to the west.
Churchward claims the ancient Mexican pyramids are monuments to the destruction of the land to west. Churchward's other pieces of evidence to his claims lie within the south pacific islands.

Cook island in has stone monuments but has no quarry so it is presumed that they were brought there from Mu as Churchward believes. Topgona island has no stone just coral, but has a massive stone arch, the continent of Mu would've been near this island. Marshall islands have tall slender pyramids that had orientations used by the natives with them not knowing how they got them.
Several south sea islands contain great ruins of a temple which on the walls contain sacred symbols of Mu. Churchward attributed all megalithic art in Polynesia to the people of Mu. He claimed that symbols of the sun are found "depicted on stones of Polynesian ruins", such as the stone hats pukao on top of the giant moai statues of Easter Island.
Citing W. Wilcock claims that the pole-shift was the direct result of the Great flood in ancient Mythology. It is said that a civilization from the known planet Xylanthia, located in the Sirius constellation, is where the inhabitants of Atlantis originated from. Lemuria , more commonly known as Katalkol or Kumari Kandam , is a continent that was located in the Indian ocean off the shore's of India and Sri-Lanka, which was said to have sunk due to mysterious circumstances.
Most researchers claim it was due to the "great flood" that is described in many ancient text. Over the years artifacts and other trinkets from the sunken land have been said to wash up on the shore's of Sri-Lanka, supporting proof for the lost continent existence. It is also stated that Kumari Kandam was the original home land of the Tamil people. One of the more interesting rumors about the continent is, it is said to have been home to a technology advanced civilization inhabitanted by many different humanoid race's.
In , the lost continent of Mu was proposed by 19th-century traveler and writer Augustus Le Plongeon.
