Scientists have discovered at least TWO sunken continents on Earth. The discovery of these continents has changed the way we look at Earth’s history, offering new evidence which many authors have interpreted as material which points to the fact that the mythical continents such as Lemuria, Mu, and Atlantis were real.
Various legends and other unusual landforms remind of the submerged continent of Lemuria that stretched all the way from India to Australia. Like Atlantis, this ancient landmass disappeared in mysterious circumstances tens of thousands of years ago.
According to geologists, the Lemurian continent had been divided somewhere towards the end of the Mesozoic era because of the rising waters. India’s National Institute if Oceanography revealed in a study that sea level was 100 meters lower approximately 14,500 years ago, and it gradually went up because of global warming until periodic floods covered a considerable portion of the landmass. In turn, this led to the disappearance of many coastal civilizations, in our case Lemuria, or Kumari Kandam.
With so much technology at hand, it would seem a reasonable task to discover the ruins of this fabled continent, but the bottom of the ocean is an inhospitable place with frequent transitions resulting from volcanic activity, earthquakes and erosion. It may be that we’ll never discover the ruins of ancient Lemuria, but legends about it will continue to surf the planet in this new age of information.
