Newly found sunken continents suggests the mythical continent of Lemuria was REAL
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.
Most of us are familiar with the legends of Atlantis, Lemuria, and Mu. According to numerous legends and texts, Earth was home to numerous continents which have been ‘lost’ in the distant past. One of them is the continents of Lemuria, a massive landmass which is said to have stretched from India to Australia—before written history.
Just like Atlantis, the ancient landmass disappeared under mysterious circumstances and was forgotten by mankind tens of thousands of years ago.
During the 19th century, an English geologist called Philip Sclater mentioned the existence of a submerged landmass called Lemuria.
In an article—dubbed ‘The Mammals of Madagascar’—written in 1864, Sclater mentioned that lemur fossils were extremely abundant in Madagascar and India, but curiously, these fossils were missing in Africa and the middle East. This observation led Sclater to propose that during one point in the distant past, India and Madagascar were part of a broader continent referred to as Lemuria.
There are numerous studies which have proven recently—despite the idea of continental drift—that submerged continents exist on Earth.
Recently, scientists have made an incredible discovery east of Australia: A continent which has around 5 MILLION square kilometers, and it’s been hiding in plain sight for AGES. Only a small part of the continent—around 5 per cent—is visible today.
Experts suggest that today, only 5 percent of the once-mighty continent is visible, which is why researchers missed it in the distant past.
The region is mostly submerged land in the Pacific Ocean and contains both New Zealand and the French overseas territory New Caledonia.
“This is not a sudden discovery, but a gradual realization; as recently as 10 years ago we would not have had the accumulated data or confidence in interpretation to write this paper,” the researchers wrote in GSA Today, a journal of the Geological Society of America.
But there is more evidence which hints that submerged continents exist on Earth.
If we take a look at an area between mainland India and Sri Lanka, we will notice a curious geological formation.
Located in the Palk Strait, in the Indian Ocean, there is a particular geographical area, a thin strip of land that connects the south of India with Sri Lanka. It is called “Adam’s Bridge”.
Adam’s Bridge is believed to be the remains of an ancient pre-flood bridge. Possibly, the first ever bridge built on Earth.
Furthermore, it is believed that satellite images provided by NASA reveal that what we see could in fact be a collapsed bridge, now partially submerged under the ocean.
Dr. Badrinarayanan, the former director of the Geological Survey of India performed a survey of this structure and concluded that it was man-made. Dr. Badrinarayanan and his team drilled 10 bore holes along the alignment of Adam’s Bridge. What he discovered was startling. About 6 meters below the surface he found a consistent layer of calcareous sandstone, corals, and boulder like materials. His team was surprised when they discovered a layer of loose sand, some 4-5 meters further down and then hard rock formations below that.
A team of divers went down to physically examine the bridge. The boulders that they observed were not composed of a typical marine formation. They were identified as having come from either side of the causeway. Dr. Badrinarayanan also indicates that there is evidence of ancient quarrying in these areas. His team concluded that materials from either shore were placed upon the sandy bottom of the water to form the causeway. (Source)
According to Indian tradition, this “strip of land” is a bridge built by Ayodhya King Rama, as told in the epic Ramayana. In fact, since ancient times it is known as the “Bridge of Rama” or “Rama Setu”.
