Lost Continents: Secrets and mysteries of civilizations

Lost Continents

Secrets and mysteries of civilizations

This book will acquaint you with some interesting and unusual hypotheses about the lost continents. We will try to open the veil of secrecy over the issue of the disappearance of mythical lands.

The history of the Earth keeps in itself a huge number of unsolved mysteries even today. One of the most famous, which has plagued scientists for many years, is Atlantis. Specialists are trying to find out whether she really existed and what causes her death. However, ancient legends tell not only about Atlantis, which disappeared from the face of the Earth, but also about a number of continents with developed civilizations that were sunk as a result of natural cataclysms. Most often mentioned are several such continents: Lemuria, located in the Indian Ocean, and Pacifida, or Mu - in the Pacific. In 1830, the zoologist Philip Latley Sclaiter suggested that in the extreme antiquity, about 100 million years ago, in the Indian Ocean there was a continent called Lemuria, which subsequently sunk. However, scientists doubt this theory, because the age of a person is estimated at only 2-3 million years. Of course, some support the idea of Sclater and even consider that Lemuria was the cradle of humanity.
