These posts discuss physical evidence of daily life from Mu

When Mu was Atlantis Part 2

The article in the New York American from October 20, 1912 by Paul Schliemann was entitled, “HOW I FOUND THE LOST ATLANTIS, THE SOURCE OF ALL CIVILIZATION.” The author provides a description of a portion of his incredible evidence as to the previous existence of Atlantis. Although promising more information and eventually a complete discussion of all the evidence in a forthcoming book, he was never heard from again.

In addition to nearly the same quote from the Troano Manuscript as cited from Le Plongeon in Queen Moo and the Egyptian Sphinx (see When Mu was Atlantis Part 1,) Schliemann also adds a new document, the Lhasa Record. According to Peter Schliemann, this 2,000 year-old record is from the ‘old Buddhistic Temple’ in Lhasa, Tibet and written in Chaldean script.

“When the star Bal fell on the place where is now only sea and sky the Seven Cities with their Golden Gates and Transparent Temples quivered and shook like the leaves of a tree in storm. And behold a flood of fire and smoke arose from the palaces. Agony and cries of the multitude filled the air. They sought refuge in their temples and citadels. And the wise Mu, the hieratic of Ra-Mu, arose and said to them: ‘Did not I predict all this?’ And the women and the men in their precious stones and shining garments lamented: ‘Mu, save us.’ And Mu replied: ‘You shall die together with your slaves and your riches and from your ashes will arise new nations. If they forget they are superior, not because of what they put on, but of what they put out, the same lot will befall them!’ Flame and smoke choked the words of Mu. The land and its inhabitants were torn to pieces and swallowed by the depths in a few months.”

One might wonder why a Chaldean inscription might be found in the remote mountains of Tibet, especially of such great antiquity. The Chaldean people are first identified by the Greeks as early as the 9th century BCE, the Chaldean Empire (also known as the Neo-Babylonian Empire,) existed in the 6th and 7th centuries BCE, however sometimes the Syriac alphabet is sometimes (erroneously) called the Chaldean script and is known from the 1st century AD. Obviously, there is a discrepancy with regards to the time frame the supposed ‘Chaldean’ inscription was created, either 1100, 1300 or 2000 years before the people or the script even existed. Further complicating the veracity of the ‘Lhasa Record’ is no other person has reported to have seen the inscription nor have any images, pictures or drawings been revealed or shown. Peter Schliemann produced pictures of the other artifacts he discovered, but not this inscription. Most researchers without a far-fetched point to prove would dismiss the ‘Lhasa Record,’ much has been done with Churchward’s ‘Naacal Tablets’ or Blavatsy’s ‘Book of Dzyan.’

James Churchward (1851-1936)

James Churchward, as further proof of Mu, also uses the ‘Lhasa Record’ in his books. While there is no evidence James Churchward ever met or corresponded with Peter Schliemann, the discovery of a copy of the 1912 article in one of James’ scrapbooks removes all doubt of his familiarity with his information, but again James insists his evidence proves the real location of Mu. As he wrote in the 1926 Lost Continent of Mu Motherland of Men:

Schliemann, on apparently two records only, the Troano Manuscript and the Lhasa Record, asserts that Atlantis was the land of Mu. These records do not state that Mu and Atlantis were identical; it is mere surmise on the part of Schliemann. Other records which he might have consulted would have told him plainly that the land of Mu lay to the west of America and not to the east, the location of Atlantis. However, both Atlantis and the land of Mu were destroyed by volcanic eruptions and submerged. Science has proved that beyond the shadow of a doubt.

On page 57 of his 1926 work, Churchward quotes the following extract from the Lhasa Record:

“When the star of Bal fell on the place where now is only the sky and the sea, the seven cities with their golden gates and transparent temples, quivered and shook like the leaves in a storm; and, behold, a flood of fire and smoke arose from the palaces. Agonies and cries of the multitude filled the air. They sought refuge in their temples and citadels, and the wise Mu—the Hieratic Ra Mu—arose and said to them: did I not predict all this?
And the women and the men in their precious stones and shining garments lamented ‘Mu, save us!’ and Mu replied: You shall all die together with your servants and your riches, and from your ashes new nations shall arise. If they forget they are superior not because of what they put on but what they put out the same will befall them.’ Flames and smoke choked the words of Mu: the land and its inhabitants were torn to pieces and swallowed up by the depths.”

Collapse of the Archeon Gas Belts

Other than the slight rewording of the quote from Schliemann, Churchward removes the last four words “in a few months.” This change supports James’ theory of the sinking of the continent in a matter of days, instead of ‘a few months.’ Another discrepancy involves the nature of the cataclysm causing the end of Mu, Atlantis and the other colonies. Later in the 1926 work, Churchward states the cause to be the collapse of the Archeon Gas Belts due to volcanic action and not the impact of a celestial body. Perhaps, when James translates ‘Bal’ from the Maya language to mean “Lord of the Fields,” he refers to another situation to redefine the event, but he does not further explain.

In James Churchward’s history, Atlantis was a colony of the Mu and perished in the same volcanic cataclysm. Atlantis is not ignored in Churchward’s works, but it does not play center stage as in other author’s works.

Another Mu Stone…

As I mentioned in the Facebook Live Broadcast on December 20, 2016, Chris Niven, great-grandson of William Niven generously provided me with my own ‘Mu Stone.’
Unfortunately, the carved symbol was not very recognizable. Below is an attempt to outline the symbol.

Megalithic Evidence of the Lost Continent of Mu

As examples of the ancient, advanced civilization of now-sunken Pacific Ocean continent of Mu, James Churchward lists some megalithic ruins in the South Pacific to support his assertion.

there are existing ruins which, by their location and the symbols with which they are decorated, tell of the lost continent of Mu, the motherland of man…
…On some of the South Sea Islands, notably Easter, Mangaia, Tonga-tabu, Panape, and the Ladrone or Mariana Islands, there stand today remains of old stone temples and lithic remains which take us back to the time of Mu.
“Lost Continent of Mu Motherland of Men”; page 21.

James identifies twenty-one such ruins built by the people of Mu across the Pacific and the Yucatan. The size and weight of the component stones used in these monuments when coupled with the proposed antiquity immediately begs the question, “How could a primitive people accomplish such a feat?” Some even suggest the feat is impossible today given our advanced technology. Either Aliens or Giants helped or they had some special now-forgotten technology to get the job done, depending on the snake oil they are selling.

Everyone is familiar with Moai of Easter Island, the enormous monolithic stone statues spread out across the island. More than 900 were created and the tallest of these is thirty-three feet high and weighs 82 tons. A few years ago, some scientists got together and demonstrated one method of moving them as shown in the following video. It was estimated the Moai could have been moved into position in two weeks.

That may work for some of these enormous statues, but how could they move and place the blocks in evidence on the other islands?

One fact never mentioned is Megalithic cultures still exist and they still move enormous blocks today.
The people of West Sumba of Indonesia still move megalithic tombs weighing over 30 tons using ropes and a great deal of manpower. The following video depicts an example:

There are also similar examples on the Indonesian island of Nias and the Anagami Naga from Nagaland in northeastern India. This doesn’t disprove Aliens from outer space or Giants helped with moving heavy objects or some special now-forgotten technology was involved, however using Occam’s Razor, we have to exclude them. Simple stated, Occam’s Razor can be interpreted as:

“Among competing hypotheses, the one with the fewest assumptions should be selected.”

We have evidence people can move the enormous blocks of stone, there is no physical evidence of Aliens, Giants or special machines to move large blocks of stone.

Now some will say these primitive people didn’t have the manpower to accomplish these tasks, so it had to be something else, like Aliens, Giants or special now-forgotten technology. Alas, these people forget to mention Wally Wallington. Mr. Wallington (website: relates incredible feats including moving a 15-ton pole barn 200 feet with only 40 man-hours of work and starting a replica of Stonehenge with eight ten-ton blocks and 2-ton blocks on top, alone.

My first 1 man Stonehenge replica of 2400 lb. blocks put in place with no hoisting equipment.

My first 1 man Stonehenge replica of 2400 lb. blocks put in place with no hoisting equipment.

More comprehensive video is available from Mr, Wallington on his DVD, but there is a news video:

Not to be outdone, Gordon Pipes, another carpenter, demonstrated one more method to move twelve ton blocks without hundreds of people.

As far as these ancient monuments requiring extraterrestrials, giants or special now-forgotten technologies, it is plain to see there had to have been a false assumption. Maybe it is in the question
“How could a primitive people accomplish such a feat?”
Why would someone word the question in this manner, especially to use the word ‘primitive’? Is there some bias preventing us from acknowledging others to be superior in some respects; to have knowledge and/or skills we do not yet possess?

We are all one big human family and to think any particular segment is superior to another and has nothing to learn from their relatives sounds a little silly. We are all on this planet together; the self-imposed barriers preventing people from realizing our shared human existence and working together for the good of all people shows maybe we are the ‘primitive’ ones, and not our forebears who worked together to create lasting monuments to the solidarity of their people.
