Lemuria is a lost place that existed around the time of atlantis. some of lemuria presumable was split apart some of it sinking in to the ocean the rest became separate places.
now i believe that Lemuria is made out of Indonesia,Australia,New Zealand


www.lemuria.net...

if you look at the map it roughly looks like Australia part of Indonesia and New Zealand

PS.(off topic). would people stop posting about 2012 doomsday.

post your thought ATS

Mu Continent space
There was a large continent called the Mu on the Pacific Ocean 12 thousand years ago. There, there are various human races, but there is no discrimination and they had one religion under the Emperor Ra Mu, the highest oracle. People had the highest culture, and excel at building and Navigation, and they extended the colony at each area. He blessed the nature and the foods in this continent. However, it is said that the earth sounded one day, the land broke into pieces and the lava flew out, and the country sank under the sea. at one night. As stated above, it is a legend of the Mu continent written by James Churchward, but at present, it is known that there was such a continent on the earth in the past or at present from the geology, but such a legend exists at each area in Ryukyu Islands


Lemuria may also have been along the Superswell, an area of the Pacific ocean which can easily be raised above seal level with a small drop in sea level or with a few earthquakes or volcanic eruptions. The Superswell begins right below calfornia, goes to hawaii, and then goes down to Easter island, goes along Polyneisa, and then along to Japan. Real scientists accept that there certainly was a civilization on the superswell, only skeptics are in denial. If sea levels dropped about 12-20 feet the entire superswell could be exposed above water again

Superswell- see how it would easily be above water in the past. This was the area outined on the documenary as being above water over 10,000 years ago, as well as many islands which would have broken off the coasts of various lands.


And today, underwater


Some info
www.huttoncommentaries.com...

This is "a broad area of uplifted seafloor containing numerous volcanoes in French Polynesia." The boundaries of this superswell contain the Society, Cook, Austral, Tuamotu, Marquises, and Easter island chains. These islands reflect an enhanced rate of volcanism in the superswell area due to enormous quantities of hot mantle rock below the ocean floor.

If the South Pacific Superswell were once above sea level, forming the continent of Lemuria, it would have been buoyed up by a broad bulge in the mantle, much like that recently inferred to be buoying up the lofty peaks and plateaus of the American West. A renewal of mantle upwelling beneath the SPS could result in the seafloor there rising above the waves once again. Such activity would bear out the statement in Cayce reading 1152-11 (8/13/41) which says that, "In the next few years, lands will appear in the Atlantic as well as in the Pacific."

“volcanism can be attributed to [crust and mantle] downflow and recycling at the recognized subduction zones of Indonesia and the Pacific rim, but to upwelling and decompression melting at mid-ocean ridges and ‘hotspots’. Some of the Pacific island chains, best exemplified by the Hawaiian chain, are conventionally attributed to reheating of a lithospheric plate as it migrates over a deep-source hotspot. The hotspot and moving plate model of island chain volcanism is faced with several problems, however, including the occurrence of along-chain compositional changes, the typical absence of “plume scale” heat flow anomalies, and the absence, for example along the Cook-Austral chain, of a systematic sequence of geologic ages.”

Keith then goes on to reveal that the combined geophysical and geochemical evidence brings out the inadequacy of the plume model, thus leaving open the problem of accounting for linear oceanic island chains. He then proposes , as a working hypothesis, that the Hawaiian-Emperor chain (Fig. 3) is located along the trend of a linear cold residue developed below the ancestral Mid-Pacific Ridge, and that “part of the residue was left behind when the ridge was variably displaced during a Mesozoic disruption of the Pacific mantle….” (p. 302).





And the thing is, the Spuerswell corresponds to James Churchwards location of Mu very precicely

The Superswell and Mantle Dynamics Beneath the South Pacific
Marcia K. McNutt 1 and Anne V. Judge 1

1 Department of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA 02139

The region of sea floor beneath French Polynesia (the "Superswell") is anomalous in that its depth is too shallow, flexural strength too weak, seismic velocity too slow, and geoid anomaly too negative for its lithospheric age as determined from magnetic isochrons. These features evidently are the effect of excess heat and extremely low viscosity in the upper mantle that maintain a thin lithospheric plate so easily penetrated by volcanism that 30 percent of the heat flux from all hot spots is liberated in this region, which constitutes only 3 percent of the earth's surface. The low-viscosity zone may facilitate rapid plate motion and the development of small-scale convection. A possible heat supply for the Superswell is a mantle reservoir enriched in radioactive isotopes as suggested by the geochemical signature of lavas from Superswell volcanoes.

Lemuria and Mu are two different places.

The authors at the sites linked are either unaware of this fact or they choose to ignore it.
Both Lemuria and Mu, moreover, are fabrications.

Lemuria was a "bridge" continent hypothesized in 1864 in an attempt to explain the presence of lemur fossils (thus the name) in India and Malaysia when lemurs were found only in Madagascar. Lemuria was supposed to be a sunken "bridge" continent from Madagascar to India.



Though living lemur species are only found in Madagascar and several surrounding islands, the biogeography of extinct lemurs extends from Pakistan to Malaysia. The wide range of the animals inspired the name Lemuria, which was coined in 1864 by the zoologist 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.

Please note what this means - Lemuria, even if it had existed (and it never did,) would not have been in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. It would be on the floor of the Indian Ocean today.

Mu is quite simply the result of Augustus Le Plongeon's overactive imagination and his use (or misuse) of Charles Étienne Brasseur de Bourbourg's faulty "translation" of the Troano Codex (which is today part of what we call the Madrid Codex,) one of the four surviving examples of Mayan writings (other than the occasional carving of glyphs on Mayan temple and tomb walls, that is.) Brasseur de Bourbourg used the de Landa alphabet for his translation, and the de Landa alphabet has since been shown to be completely and utterly incorrect.



The idea of Mu first appeared in the works of the antiquarian Augustus Le Plongeon (1825–1908), a 19th century traveler and writer who conducted his own investigations of the Maya ruins in Yucatán. He announced that he had translated the ancient Mayan writings, which supposedly showed that the Maya of Yucatán were older than the later civilizations of Greece and Egypt, and additionally told the story of an even older continent of Mu.

According to his work, "Queen Moo & The Egyptian Sphinx" Chapter VI (page 66), LePlongeon placed his Lost Continent in the Atlantic Ocean:


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 Homen, 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.
"Queen Moo & The Egyptian Sphinx" Chapter VI (page 66)


Le Plongeon actually got the name "Mu" from Charles Étienne Brasseur de Bourbourg who in 1864 mistranslated what was then called the Troano Codex using the de Landa alphabet. Brasseur concluded that the word 'Mu' (that he thought he had found) referred to a land submerged by a catastrophe. Le Plongeon then turned this into a sunken continent whose Queen Moo fled to Egypt and founded a civilization there. Other refugees supposedly fled to Central America and became the Mayans [1].


Churchward's entire racist thesis is based (like Joseph Smith's) on tablets that only he and one other person can translate - or even see, apparently.



Churchward began his book The Lost Continent Mu with his claim that, “All matter of science in this work are based on translations of two sets of ancient tablets,”[2] which apparently he and a colleague were the only ones who knew how to translate. Churchward’s theory, especially what it would imply, is a complex one that would require more evidence than two texts found out of archaeological context to warrant any merit. In his attempt to create a vivid description of an ancient yet lost civilization capable of explaining the greatness of the “white” race, Churchward connects several civilizations. He includes Egypt, Greece, Central America, India, Burma and others, as well as Easter Island. These are all cultures that are known for their megalithic art and architecture and have been a topic of interest for scholars for centuries. Churchward and others made comparisons of these different cultures in an extremely vague fashion, and his facts were definitely biased according to current knowledge and research of Easter Island.


Churchward's fantasy of Mu has been completely demolished by modern science. And it's certainly important to point out that there exists no "legend of Mu" among any of the native peoples living on or near the Pacific Rim.

Edited to add:

All this info is already posted here at ATS in a multitude of threads on the subject. It was easy to find this stuff here at ATS until the fringers took this site over, basically burying any decent information with their endless posting of precisely this sort of fluff which had, in the past, already been examined thoroughly and rightly discarded right here in this very section of the ATS board.

There was at least one poster - I forget the name - that so thoroughly and completely demolished Churchward that at the time I swear I remember thinking to myself that I'd never see that moron's (Churchward) name on this site again!

Ah well, such is time.
