Noah's Great Flood occurred about 5200 years ago, Atlantis disappeared about 11,700 years ago, but before those events that changed the course of human history, there was the 'Lost Land' of Mu, or Lemura that disappeared around 12,700 years ago. These three events seem to have one thing in common, the impact of a large comet or meteorite that seems to have almost driven mankind to extinction.
Lemuria is the name of a hypothetical "lost land" variously located in the Indian and Pacific Oceans. it has still been adopted by writers involved in the occult, as well as some Tamil writers of India. Accounts of Lemuria differ, but all share a common belief that a continent existed in ancient times and sank beneath the ocean as a result of a cataclysmic change. The concept of Lemuria being a sunken continent has been rendered obsolete by modern theories of plate tectonics. However, this does not invalidate the concept of a lost Lemurian civilization.
The purpose of this work is to provide enough information to suggest that such an ancient civilization could have existed, and been destroyed by the comet/giant meteorite impacts that initiated the Younger Dryas cold period. Additionally, some material is offered that could define possible locations where artifacts generated by that civilization might be found.
