Lost continents or the lost lands are antediluvian worlds such as Atlantis, Lemuria, and Mu. They are often discussions of debate, even since Plato. Some of these locations are also said to be vector points to Hollow Earth. They were regions and lands existing during the prehistory having since disappeared as a result of catastrophic or other geological phenomena since the end of the last Ice Age. 



The story of Atlantis can be traced back to Plato. There is support for the theory that Antarctica was once Atlantis. David Wilcock explains that after the Earth went through a pole-shift, what was once a sub-tropical continent, Atlantis quick-froze. Wilcock claims that the pole-shift was the direct result of the Great flood in ancient mythology. The quick-freeze of Atlantis is present day Antarctica.[1]

The location of R'lyeh (Mu) given by Lovecraft was 47°9′S 126°43′W in the southern Pacific Ocean. August Derleth placed it at 49°51′S 128°34′W. Both locations are close to the Pacific pole of inaccessibility or "Nemo" point, 48°52.6′S 123°23.6′W, a point in the ocean farthest from any land mass.

In 1896, the lost continent of Mu was proposed by 19th-century traveler and writer Augustus Le Plongeon.[2] In 1926, James Churchward asserted that Mu was once located in the Pacific.[3] Two years later, H.P. Lovecraft's short story "The Call of Cthulhu", published in Weird Tales of June 1928, describes a lost city called R'lyeh on the continent of Mu. He plots its location near the Pacific pole of inaccessibility,[4] also known as "Point Nemo" (48°52.6′S 123°23.6′W), a point in the Pacific Ocean farthest from any land mass.[5] August Derleth also contributed to the mythos giving coordinates that was likewise near this point.[6]


The existence of "lost continents", such as Atlantis, Lemuria, and Mu are disputed by mainstream scientists. They are dismissed as physically impossible, or argue that these continents can neither sink nor be destroyed in the time frames suggested.[7][8][9][10]
