Atlantis and Lemuria: The Lost Continents Revealed!
Sixty thousand years ago, two additional continents existed, each about 10 to 12 percent larger than the continent of Australia. One was located in the Atlantic Ocean between North America and Africa: Atlantis. The other was located in the Pacific Ocean: Lemuria, or Mu. Why are they no longer there?
Scientists have estimated that the sea levels of the world are 300 to 400 feet higher than they were in the ancient past. Ruins of a city have been found submerged off the west coast of Cuba, another on the coast of Spain, and there’s a submerged road off the coast of Bimini in the Bahamas. Giant ruins of a civilization have been discovered under the sea near Yonaguni-jima, Japan. Legend has it — and most legends are rooted in actual events, I’ve discovered — that the Atlanteans destroyed the remaining eight islands that warred against each other after the continent was destroyed by earthquakes 18,000 years earlier, a result of it sitting in the middle of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. The Lemurians also sank their continent during a climatic war 5,000 years after the last islands of Atlantis were destroyed.
Plato wrote about Atlantis in his Timaeus and Critias dialogues around 360 BC. These works have been covered extensively in other books, so we won’t dwell on them except to ask later where Plato obtained his information. And Edgar Cayce, known as the “sleeping prophet,” received extensive information about Atlantis and Lemuria.
