The Lost Continent of Mu, The Atlantis of the Pacific Ocean
The Lost Continent of Mu – The other Atlantis, the Real Cradle of All the Known Civilizations
The first time we heard of the People of Mu it was on the remote Indonesian Island of Sumba.
During a traditional festival called Pasola, we met a man from Hungary, completely dressed in white, with a long white beard.
He was there to prove the existence of the Lost Continent of Mu, according to him all the populations of the Pacific are descendants of Mu civilization.
Peaceful and hearted people, in contrast to those descending from Atlantis civilization, who instead founded the evil corporations running the world today.
The believer of the existence of the less famous version of Atlantis are still many.
Other lost continents, like Mauritia, were legend until in 2013 scientists found the microcontinent drown 85 million years ago off the coast of Madagascar.
Scientists have a different opinion about Mu, the existence of such a gigantic continent is geologically impossible.
Nevertheless, the story is fascinating: here the origins of the Legendary Lost Continent of Mu.

Le Plongeon, Maya Civilization and the Origin of Mu
Augustus Le Plongeon was a famous archeologist and photographer, born in 1826, particularly interested in the Maya civilization.
Thanks to his work, we now have a vast collection of pictures of ancient ruins in Yucatán.
He was the first to photograph and study Chichen Itza in 1873.
But Le Plongeon was also interested in other aspects of Maya’s history.
He wanted to prove a link between the Maya, ancient Egyptians, and Atlantis but this alternative theory was considered a conspiracy by his contemporary colleagues.
He believed everything started from the Maya, who traveled to Atlantis and later founded the Ancient Egyptian civilization.
Le Plongeon called Atlantis “Land of Mu“. But after he translated the Popol Vuh, the sacred book of the K’iche’ he had a much clearer idea.
The civilization of ancient Egypt was founded by Queen Moo and her people, refugees from the collapsed continent of Mu.
They became the Maya.
Churchward was the most prolific author about the Lost Continent of Mu.
