The Destruction of Lemuria and Mount Toba
The destruction of Lemuria is well documented in occult literature. Lemurians had a difficult time with a warming climate, unexpected volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, tidal waves, and attacks from wild creatures. However, the ultimate destruction of Lemuria was caused by a series of catastrophic events. The last destructive magnetic cataclysm reached the 40-degree parallel north latitude in North America and the 50-degree parallel north latitude in Europe; ocean waters flooded lands and rolled over the plains of Manchuria, Mongolia, Siberia, and parts of Asia.
Lemuria was about four or five million years old when it sunk. It is claimed that Mt. Shasta and the surrounding regions survived the deluge due to the high elevation, and many of the surviving Lemurians took refuge within the hollow interior of the mountain itself. Here, the Lemurians built a city using their great skills and knowledge of engineering.
About 82,000 years ago, during the Pleistocene Era, the eastern parts of Lemuria began to sink slightly, and at the same time, the European continent began to rise. About 50,000 years ago, a new island began to emerge in the Atlantic Ocean, now known as Atlantis. As Atlantis rose, so did the mountains of North and South America. At about 25,000 years ago, the island of Atlantis split from Europe and Africa and became a separate continent. Now, Lemuria was sinking in its western regions, forcing a migration of its remaining inhabitants to Asia, Australia, and the Pacific Islands.
Mount Toba in Sumatra and Lemuria
Curiously, there is geological evidence that around 71,000 years ago, Mt. Toba in Sumatra had the largest volcanic eruption in the last 400 million years. It caused most of India to be buried under ash and caused tidal waves around the world. The last glacial period was preceded by 1,000 years of the coldest temperatures of the Late Pleistocene, apparently caused by the Mt. Toba eruption. The six-year-long volcanic winter and 1000-year-long instant Ice Age that followed Mount Toba’s eruption may have decimated the modern human population.
Genetic evidence suggests that the human population fell to about 10,000 adults between 50 and 100 thousand years ago. The survivors from this global catastrophe would have found refuge in isolated tropical pockets, mainly in Equatorial Africa. Populations living in Europe and northern China would have been eliminated by the reduction of the summer temperatures by as much as 12 degrees centigrade.
