Legendary lost continent supposed to have been situated in the Pacific, being 5,000 miles long and 3,000 miles wide, with its center just south of the Equator.
Some contemporary theorists have speculated that the Easter Island monuments are remnants of the lost continent of Mu.
The theory of the existence of Mu arose in the nineteenth century, when Anglo-American Col. James Churchward claimed that, while in India during the famine of 1866, he was taught an ancient language called Naacal by a Hindu priest. Naacal, according to Churchward, was humankind's original tongue.
Churchward was then supposedly able to decipher the story of Mu on some ancient stone tablets hidden in the priest's temple. The tablets revealed that man first appeared in Mu 2 million years ago, and that a sophisticated race of 64 million people evolved and developed into a civilization superior in many respects to our own, just to be destroyed in a single gigantic volcanic eruption. From the few survivors of this alleged world wide cataclysm, sprang all the world's present races.
Churchward wrote a book, The Lost Continent of Mu, which begins with these words:
"The Garden of Eden was not in Asia but on a now sunken continent in the Pacific Ocean. The Biblical story of creation — the epic of the seven days and seven nights — came first not from the peoples of the Nile or of the Euphrates Valley but from this now submerged Continent, Mu — the Motherland of Man."
Other books written by Churchward include Sacred Symbols of Mu, Cosmic Forces of Mu, Children of Mu, and The Books of the Golden Age, all of them describing further aspects of the alleged Muvian civilization.
Fantastic, isn't it? Well, recent genetical studies suggest that some time in the past, due to some not yet pinpointed environmental catastrophe, a "population bottleneck" resulted, meaning that our ancestors went through an event that greatly reduced our numbers and thus our genetic variation. It is speculated that this event could have been the eruption of Mount Toba in Sumatra, 71,000 years ago, which was the largest volcanic eruption in the last 400 million years, causing most of India to be buried under ash and issuing a global "nuclear winter". Gigantic tidal waves also swept the nearby oceans.
