I'm sorry, but where in The Mahabharata does it refer to Atlantis?
Well, it so happens that one of the explanations for the destruction of Atlantis is found in the Sanskrit Epic literature. It seems that during the war between the Gods and Asuras several battles occurred involving vimanas which failed to accomplish the goal to end a ten year-long war. Finally an extremely large vimana is built, and armed with a weapon, very similar in its stated effects to our present-day nuclear weapons. The vimana flew toward Atlantis (Atala, in the account) and launched it directly at the capital city, Tripura. As a result cities and inhabitant were destroyed and sent, burning, to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. So says the Mahabharata. You can argue with it, but you can't change it. I simply present all sides to the question.
Describing the final battle in what I believe to be the same war, the Greek writer Hesiod says that the ocean "seethed and boiled" and that mountains "heaved and shook" as the Titans were suffering their ignominious defeat. They were finally imprisoned (they were considered to be immortal, and thus could not die) in "Tartaros" beneath this western ocean. The gates of this prison were guarded by none other than Atlas--a definitive Atlantean connection! For full details click on the Mythology page, or click on the scroll labeled "Aircraft from India" and then the "War of the Gods and Asuras". The similarities between these stories are striking, and unlikely to be mere coincidence. Even the Bible makes reference (although somewhat obscure) to this event.

Is the Kurukshetra War the war between Atlantis and Rama you are refering to? The Kurukshetra War was not between Atlantis and Rama, but two rival clans for the city of Hastinapura.

The Lumerian region I speak of starts in the western U.S. and extends from the coast off Calif. westward too the Hawaii Islands. This is what was channeled to me believe it or not.
You're right, I don't believe it. The geography of the Pacific Ocean does not support your claim.
There are groups of islands off the coast to California, but after that, there is nothing but a thousand miles of deep ocean until you reach Hawaii, nothing resembling a continent.

Originally posted by srsen...i always said Lemuria as it was derived from some Frnch word for Mu - LE (the) MU (mu) RIA (meant LAND or something i think). so The land of Mu. but i cant remember where i read it or if that is correct...
Though the living modern lemurs are only found in Madagascar and several surrounding islands, the biogeography of extinct lemurs extending from Pakistan to Malaysia inspired the name Lemuria, which was coined in 1864 by the geologist Philip Sclater in an article "The Mammals of Madagascar" in The Quarterly Journal of Science. Puzzled by the presence of fossil lemurs in both Madagascar and India, but not in Africa nor the Middle East, Sclater proposed that Madagascar and India had once been part of a larger continent, which he named "Lemuria" for its lemurs.
Lemuria (IPA: [liˈmjuriə]) is the name of a hypothetical "lost land" variously located in the Indian and Pacific Oceans. Its 19th century origins lie in attempts to account for discontinuities in biogeography. Lemuria has been rendered superfluous by modern understanding of plate tectonics. Although sunken continents do exist — see Zealandia in the Pacific and the Kerguelen Plateau in the Indian Ocean — there is no geological formation under the Indian or Pacific Oceans that corresponds to the hypothetical Lemuria.
Though Lemuria has passed out of the realm of science, it has been adopted by occult writers, as well as some Tamil writers of India. Accounts of Lemuria differ according to the requirements of their contexts, but all share a common belief that a continent existed in ancient times and sank beneath the ocean as a result of geological change, often cataclysmic.
Radiation still so intense, the area is highly dangerous
A heavy layer of radioactive ash in Rajasthan, India, covers a three-square mile area, ten miles west of Jodhpur. Scientists are investigating the site, where a housing development was being built.
For some time it has been established that there is a very high rate of birth defects and cancer in the area under construction. The levels of radiation there have registered so high on investigators' gauges that the Indian government has now cordoned off the region. Scientists have unearthed an ancient city where evidence shows an atomic blast dating back thousands of years, from 8,000 to 12,000 years, destroyed most of the buildings and probably a half-million people. One researcher estimates that the nuclear bomb used was about the size of the ones dropped on Japan in 1945.
Archeologist Francis Taylor stated that etchings in some nearby temples he translated suggested that they prayed to be spared from the great light that was coming to lay ruin to the city. “It’s so mind-boggling to imagine that some civilization had nuclear technology before we did. The radioactive ash adds credibility to the ancient Indian records that describe atomic warfare.” When excavations of Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro reached the street level, they discovered skeletons scattered about the cities, many holding hands and sprawling in the streets as if some instant, horrible doom had taken place. People were just lying, unburied, in the streets of the city. And these skeletons are thousands of years old, even by traditional archaeological standards. What could cause such a thing? Why did the bodies not decay or get eaten by wild animals? Furthermore, there is no apparent cause of a physically violent death. A. Gorbovsky, in Riddles of Ancient History, reported the discovery of at least one human skeleton in this area with a level of radioactivity approximately 50 times greater than it should have been due to natural radiation. Furthermore, thousands of fused lumps, christened “black stones”, have been found at Mohenjo-Daro. These appear to be fragments of clay vessels that melted together in extreme heat.

I made no mention of the Kurukshetra War...you did.

So, let us discover what might be the best evidence. The first question is whether a Francis Taylor existed. There is a Francis Taylor, an American museum director, who died in 1957. He was not an archaeologist. There is a “Franciscio Taylor”, but he is not the above quoted Francis Taylor.
Surendra Gadekar also investigated the conditions of villagers at Rawatbhatta in Rajasthan and discovered gross radiation-related deformities. We note that Rawatbhatta is in the same region as the discovery of the “ancient warfare” site. But Gadekar did not find evidence of ancient warfare, but evidence of modern negligence: wood that had been used in the power plant, had then “somehow” made his way into society, where it was subsequently used as wood for a fire. This in itself was a minor incident, but could there have been more serious incidents, whereby it was decided to deflect attention from the present to the ancient past?
Atlantis and Rama were not the only advanced civilizations in the world at that time. The Mediterranean was a large and fertile valley...It is an archaeological fact that there are more than 200 known sunken cities in the Mediterranean. That must be where the Pyramids came from...Given that the ancients had nuclear capabilities, we know that they had the technology of 1945 at the earliest.
The India of 15,000 years ago is sometimes known as the Rama Empire, a land that was contemporary with Atlantis. A huge wealth of texts still extant in India testify to the extremely advanced civilization that is said by these texts to go back over 26,000 years. Terrible wars and subsequent earth changes destroyed these civilizations, leaving only isolated pockets of civilization.
