The Lost Continent of Lemuria: A Myth or Reality?

Join us in this episode as we delve into the fascinating concept of Lemuria, a sunken continent in the Indian Ocean that has captivated the imaginations of many. Similar to Atlantis, Lemuria has sparked numerous theories and legends, leaving us to wonder if it was merely a myth or if there is some truth behind the tales.

The theory of Lemuria was first proposed by zoologist Philip Sklater in 1864. Sklater used the distribution of lemurs across different continents to explain the existence of a land bridge that connected South America, India, Africa, and Madagascar. According to Sklater, Lemuria served as a bridge for lemurs to migrate between these regions.

However, it was the Theosophist Helena Blavatsky and writer James Churchward who further popularized the concept of Lemuria in their works. Churchward described a continent called Mu, which is often considered to be the same as Lemuria. Their writings ignited the imagination of many, leading to a surge in interest and speculation about this lost land.

Legends and stories of Lemuria also exist in Tamil culture, where it is known as Kumari Kandam. These tales speak of a vast landmass that was once home to an advanced civilization before it was swallowed by the sea.

The destruction of Lemuria is attributed to various causes, including natural disasters such as volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, and tsunamis. Some even believe that the Anunnaki, a group of ancient deities, intentionally caused the continent to sink.

While the concept of Lemuria has long been dismissed as a mere myth, recent scientific discoveries have shed new light on the possibility of its existence. The discovery of the submerged continent of Mauritia suggests that ancient legends may have a basis in truth.

Join us as we explore the mysteries of Lemuria, examining the theories, legends, and scientific discoveries that surround this enigmatic lost continent.

Original Show Notes

For thousands of years, the world has been captivated by the mystery of Atlantis. The concept of an ancient city hidden beneath the ocean is fascinating.

But what if there was not just a city, but an entire continent buried beneath the waves?

The continent of Lemuria is a massive landmass believed to have sunk in the Indian Ocean after some ancient, catastrophic event.

Atlantis and Lemuria are similar in that they’ve sparked numerous theories, legends and interpretations.

But Atlantis and Lemuria are very different in one way. There’s no proof of Atlantis.
