Atlantis - Mu - Lemuria thread:
Through much of history we have seen multiple examples of a lost seafaring civilizations. Is there anything to these legends? We will examine some of the ideas here.
Perhaps the most famous of the legends is that of Atlantis.

Plato told the story of Atlantis around 360 B.C.

They created a utopian civilization and became a great naval power. Their home was made up of concentric islands separated by wide moats and linked by a canals.
There have been several proposed locations for Atlantis many looking toward the middle of the Atlantic ocean - from which the city gets it's name - to the Bahamas of the Caribbean.
Although no real evidence has been found to support the legend of Atlantis we have other legends of great seafaring civilizations that we can draw from.

Lemuria and Mu.

Two names that have been used somewhat interchangeably in modern times to describe a lost civilization.
It was in 1864 that zoologist Philip Sclater suggested a lost civilization located in the Indian ocean he called Lemuria.

It is said in Tamil legend to have been civilized for over 20,000 years, with traces of the culture surviving on the Indian subcontinent even until today.
The theory was proposed as an explanation for the presence of lemur fossils in both Madagascar and India.

Although scientifically disproven - we know that the isolated island of Madagascar in the Indian ocean is still home to the earths most densely populated biodiversity.
Was India home to an ancient thalassocratic empire that spread around South East Asia and Indonesia in times of early history?
The Tamil were the great stoneworkers of ancient India. We see megalithic stonework all throughout Indonesia.

Could these sites be connected to a great seafaring empire that we don't completely understand the history of?
What would this cultural center have looked like originally?
Where do we get these ideas of lost ancient cities?
Nias Island is known as the last surviving megalithic culture.

Isolated from the rest of the world could it have preserved some of these traditions from the past?
Here is a relief of a Borobudur.

It was a kind of ship that was native to Polynesia that was used on established trade routes throughout the region.
These ships were known to have been seaworthy enough to sail across the Indian ocean to Africa on what was known as the Cinnamon trade route.
Imagine thousands of these throughout the entire region..

We are talking about a naval empire that was the largest of it's kind known to the ancient world.
If you don't think this culture was capable of sailing across the Pacific to the Americas on such a boat consider this guy that sails from California to Hawaii on a 23 foot sailboat alone..
Mainline history even suggests that the Hawaiian Islands were first settled as early as 400 C.E., when Polynesians from the Marquesas Islands, 2000 miles away, traveled to Hawaii's Big Island in canoes.
The Kadavul Hindu Temple is a Sri Lankan-Style Hindu temple dedicated to the Shiva located on the Kauai island in the state of Hawaii, USA.

Kadavul is an ancient Tamil word for God, meaning “He who is both immanent and transcendent.”
Although not officially established until 1973 it shows the presence of Shiva worship on the island connecting it back to the Hindu-Tamil cultures of the Indian subcontinent.
The Spanish were briefly given territorial rights to India by Pope Alexander VI on 25 September 1493 by the bull Dudum siquidem before these rights were removed by the Treaty of Tordesillas less than one year later.
It's suggested by some authors that when the Spanish came in contact with India at this time they found record of ancient trade routes leading to the western Americas previously unknown to the European world.
Spain never colonialized India because of the governments of Spain and Portugal agreeing to the Treaty of Tordesillas.

The treaty neatly divided the “New World” of the Americas between the two superpowers.
Portugal - the country known as the "Templar Nation"

If something was found in India could it have been taken back to Portugal or Spain and guarded by Templar Knights?
Could this be where we get the legend of California as an Island?

Being yet another mythical island nation that turned out to not be what we thought it was.
