I hope you don't get flamed by this post. You should know that any
references to Mu, Atlantis and such are usually greeted here with grand
invective. Since you can't, and I couldn't bring any scientific citation
to this topic, consider it a red cape/flag to an already enraged bull.

I am, myself, very interested in this subject, and had studied it to the
point of coming to the following conclusions:

The Earth is far older than we think, and with that the age of the
human race.

The Creation Story in the Bible is as mythological as is the theory of

We didn't just experience other civilizations whose temples and trash
heaps we can scientifically study and argue over. There have been
millenia of other human
experience, but so far buried and even recycled by Earth that there
is no hope
for sites and citations.

All the above conclusions have been reached by methods of thought not
blessed by contemporary science and education.

Which of course leads to the conclusion that the above couldn't be
explained in
any way that's satisfactory.

It's such a pity that these two divergent schools of thought couldn't
meet together. Unfortunately Mu and Atlantis issue just has to remain
New Age drivel in the eyes of science types whose "window upon the
world" is in my view, far too short and their science too immature to
warrant such closed-mindedness. On the other hand, New Ageies I have
known are so enamored of Mu and Atlantis the Paradise far superior to
our current civilization, that talking to today's scientists is really
beneath their contempt. Both are in broad concept correct, but
intractable as to how to meet. See the Middle East conflict as a
crucible for the same dilemma, but of only slightly different
ingredients. My own view is that Mu and Atlantis did exist, and their
full story will never be known. Little peeks can be had, however. If you
understand and accept the engine of reincarnation, then Atlantis becomes
a verb for an action we have partial descriptives for: Type-A
individual, Racism, and others. Mu is also something of a verb, though
it started as a noun - Genome comes to mind.

As to Churchward, those tablets of his are about as believable and
verifiable as the tablets that begat the Book of Mormon. Othewise -
