The hypothesis was proposed as an explanation for the presence of lemur fossils in Madagascar and India but not in Africa or the Middle East

Friday, May 6th, 2022

I was recently reminded of the Theosophists and their belief in the lost continent of Lemuria, which I had only ever seen mentioned in old science fiction and fantasy:

Lemuria was a continent proposed in 1864 by zoologist Philip Sclater to have sunk beneath the Indian Ocean, later appropriated by occultists in supposed accounts of human origins.

The hypothesis was proposed as an explanation for the presence of lemur fossils in Madagascar and India but not in Africa or the Middle East. Biologist Ernst Haeckel’s suggestion in 1870 that Lemuria could be the ancestral home of mankind caused the hypothesis to move beyond the scope of geology and zoogeography, ensuring its popularity outside of the framework of the scientific community.

Occultist and founder of Theosophy Helena Blavatsky, during the latter part of the 19th century, placed Lemuria in the system of her mystical-religious doctrine, claiming that this continent was the homeland of the human ancestors, whom she called Lemurians. The writings of Blavatsky had a significant impact on Western esotericism, popularizing the myth of Lemuria and its mystical inhabitants.

Theories about Lemuria became untenable when, in the 1960s, the scientific community accepted Alfred Wegener’s theory of continental drift, presented in 1912, but the idea lived on in the popular imagination, especially in relation to the Theosophist tradition.

Science-fiction writer L. Sprague de Camp wrote a book, Lost Continents, about Atlantis and other sunken lands — which had to be revised when the theory of continental drift gained acceptance.

    My thought too was the Kerguelen underwater plateau, Indian Ocean. Was once dry land?

    Lost continents are a distraction from what strange things were built on coastlines now deep underwater and in Antarctica now under much ice and guarded by military bases appearing only on Fitbit maps.

    Everyone knows this.

    Jim;

    I’m not familiar with what you’re referring to, but what I absolutely do suspect is that there are entire tomes of human history under 400 feet of water off of every coastline on the planet.

    Between the rebound effect of the ice melting, and the rise in coastlines from the same, I would suggest that the vast majority of human history from around 150,000 BP to 12,800 years BP is likely underwater. The crime is that we’re not really looking very hard for it. Archaeology, in general, doesn’t seem interested in marine survey, but to me, it’s almost a certainty that, like today, most people lived on or near the coast back then, which means that the shadows of their existence all sit under 400 feet of sea water now. The true story of, say, the migrations of the original humans to colonize the Americas is almost all underwater now. I essentially reject the Laurentian Gap migration hypothesis at this point, since enough evidence of pre-gap colonization has been found at this point that I’m a firm subscriber to the coastal migration hypothesis, via refugia like those that dot the coastline of present day Greenland.

    But since you mentioned it, I’m intrigued about your Antarctica statement. I’m going to study on it, if you have any suggestions on where to start?

    I think these people used to run the planet during the Ice Age and maybe before.

    Some of the links I have that said they tested their DNA and found them not the same as present humans have disappeared but here’s back ups. If I remember correctly the mtDNA was different from all strains of humans presently and there were other differences.

    Their skulls are all over. Very few people investigate them. There are a lot of them in what appear to be hastily dug graves in Peru. Their skulls are NOT this way from binfing. They have different cranial stitching from normal humans. I need to emphasize this, all humans have the same cranial stitching and they are different. Baby skulls have been found and they too have cone heads, so it is NOT binding.

    They have large skull casings. People who have tested their DNA say it is different.

    It’s my belief that some sort of contagious disease wiped out most of them. Hence, the hastily dug graves.

    They appear to still be around.

    There’s variuos people thta appear to be offsprng of them. Some of the ancient Pharaohs of Egypt, a group of people who popped up as wealthy nobles called the Black Nobility in the middle ages. No one knows where they came from but panting show them having coneheads.

    Many Jews have this head.

    I think it extremely likely that the old stone buildings and walls like the pyramids and the walls in I think Peru were built by them. Turns out a chemist found out how to make these. He calls it geopolyner. Search for that term and you will lots more info on the tech.

    All in all I would say these were a ruthless, evil bunch of scum who exploited normal humans. As in the grave in Mexico, they were buried with numerous sacrificed normal humans. I think the mass sacrifice on the temples, built by cone head slave labor, in South America were just a continuation of the cone head rituals after they were killed off by a plague. Also the rulers bound their heads to look like them.

    It would not surprise me at all if the present appearance of an attempt to mass murder all the normal people on earth from plagues, vaxes and food destruction might not be their doing.

    There’s a whole lot about human history that makes no sense in the framework that they tell us is how it happened. There’s too many things that exist that do not in any way fit into the present story they tell us.

    I wouldn’t go as far as Sam maybe would, but a sixteenth-century map of Antarctica without ice is rather eyebrow-raising, wouldn’t you agree? And it isn’t the end of the anomalies, it’s the beginning. Without endorsing anything or anyone in particular, I greatly enjoyed reading the various things on https://bibliotecapleyades.net and https://grahamhancock.com.

    A while back I also read some interesting things about eight- and nine-foot-tall skeletons in America; allegedly (and I see no reason to doubt it) the Smithsonian spent most of the nineteenth century busily spiriting away any and all hard evidence of the first inhabitants of the American continent: a race of gigantic ginger men.

    You would think that such things would be of substantial interest to academic anthropologists et al., but after seeing how everyone behaved during the Great Hoax of 2020, maybe not.
