The lost city of Mu'a/Mu/Mua/Yonaguni Monument
After some time away from the mainstream internet debunkers, the lost city of Mu'a is starting to gain some acceptance in the mainstream
archeological world. The newest and popular theory is that early humans may have lived there and adapted the natural rock to their needs.
Efforts to date the monument are derived from the last time the area was above sea level, which would have been approximately 8,000-10,000 years
ago– about 3-5 millennia before Egypt’s pyramids were erected. If the monuments were indeed built by humankind, it would require some dramatic
revisions to the accepted chronological history of humanity.
Very glad to see a reasonable source actually linked and quoted.
However, your own source, National Geographic, said this on page one of your link:
Submerged stone structures lying just below the waters off Yonaguni Jima are actually the ruins of a Japanese Atlantis—an ancient city sunk by an
earthquake about 2,000 years ago.
That's the belief of Masaaki Kimura, a marine geologist at the University of the Ryukyus in Japan who has been diving at the site to measure and map
its formations for more than 15 years.
Turns out that Kimura found some submerged caves that proved the site actually sank (and wasn't overcome by meltwater or anything) about 2,000 years
ago. Your failure to post this fact, and to link only to page two, has not gone unnoticed, at least by me, and may indicate that you yourself, with
full knowledge, just decided to post misinformation concerning this natural formation.
It should be noted that the site lies just offshore of the island of Yonaguni. This island exibits a geomorphology almost exactly like the submerged
site, indicating that the shape(s) are certainly natural. IOW, similar rock formations are to be found on dry land on Yonaguni. Unfortunately for
fringe believers, there exists no evidence of any really
ancient culture (say, 10,000 years old) that lived on Yonaguni so, the people that the
fringe believe "built" the "monument" never bothered to occupy the much larger island nearby?
Also, please present any evidence you can come up with that a place called "Mu, Mu A ' or Mua" is mentioned in any valid mythos of any culture,
current or ancient, anywhere on Earth.

Yes, how is it that Sumer, literally sprang up 6000 years ago as a fully functioning society advanced in many ways, but with zero evidence of
progression to get to that state? Its like the messopotamians literally sparang up overnight.
In an example of how the future can truly affect the past, this "zero evidence of progression" and "springing up" is apparently only explainable
by your obvious ignorance of the Ubaid
cultures that preceded that of Sumer.
Once you find out about them, the past will change to look more like a progression.
