Sep 17, Ruth rated it liked it Shelves: Wow, how to rate this one? On the one hand, it’s a terrible book with terrible motives and terrible conclusions. I think what really sells it is Churchward’s utter confidence that what he’s saying is correct and he’s got hidden truths that only he has managed to piece together.
The hilarity of reading his conclusions while knowing discoveries since or things he was ignoring at the time makes it a bit of a trip. He does h Wow, how to rate this one? He does hit on some genuine mysteries along the way as well as coming up with dozens of mysteries that are almost certainly fabrications of his own imagination or his piecing together flawed or inaccurate information.
I highly doubt, for example, that anyone has ever observed a Mexican person speaking indigenous languages in conversation with a Japanese person without need for a translator.
Very transparent agenda to prove that humans were created white and “civilized” and everything else is “degradation” to “savagery. I think Churchward’s conclusions, based on evidence of various nuttiness, reveal more about Churchward himself and his context than about any past civilization. Further, they are an exceedingly handsome people, a link that joins perfectly the white races of the earth.
The later books in the series might be of entertainment as he speculates on culture, technology, history, or spirituality, but this is entirely dreary. An idea as inherently amusing as “lost continent, ancient civilization” should not be so saddled with analysis and pedantry.

Churchward is notable primarily for his hatred of Darwinian evolutionary theory humans could not have evolved naturally, they were obviously CREATED on Mu ov conquer the world!!!
People like Churchward with his imaginary lost continent of Mu or that dipstick on the history channel with his ancient aliens irritate me to no end. As if the vast, amazing epic of human history and development or of life in general! But the truth is more amazing than the fictions invented by pseuodoscientists and mystical crazies and their insistence to the contrary merely shows their base ignorance of the subject.
Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. Churchward relentlessly pursues a recurring pattern of presenting a vague description of an interesting unsolved archeological mystery, then insisting that this therefore proves that there was an ancient continent located in the Pacific Ocean which was the motherland of all humanity and which sunk 15, years ago.
By a Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. If James Churchward was alive today he’d be working for the History channel. This is his theory for a lost continent in the pacific and how all the ancient peoples of the world are linked to this lost country.
One of his great excuses tge that the symbolic name for Mu is represented by 3 of something So he contnent around the world looking at ancient drawings and writing and whenever he sees 3 of something says ‘see they were talking about Mu arn If James Churchward was alive today he’d be working for the History channel.
So he goes around the world looking at ancient drawings and writing churchsard whenever he sees 3 of something says ‘see they were talking about Mu arn’t i a genius! Its like Ancient Aliens but too boring to laugh at. Apr 28, Jaime Enrique rated it it was amazing. Overall I think he was accurate in that there was an ancient civilization.
However, I think more research needs to be done in order to assert some of his claims. Like for example, his explanation thhe why the earth changed so rapidly into a mountainous region in South America doesn’t make a lot of sense to me. But I think in a lot of everything else, he is pretty much right and is a very compelling argument. Oct 29, Chak rated it did not like it Shelves: I was more than pages into it, and realized I’m not remembering anything I read, and I continnt not engaged at all.
I hate to give up on books, but just couldn’t do it with this one.

This was my second reading of the book, probably 50 years apart. As this was originally written in the ‘s you have to take some of his theories with a grain of salt. However, I think that the whole Alaskan Land Bridge that ‘science’ tries to shove down our throats is pure fantasy. The original Americans, Central, South, and North, came here many, many years ago – from the west and by sea.
Jul 20, Ian Giesbrecht rated it it was ok. No mentions of ice cream vans or being Churchwars. Sep 04, Anne rated it liked it.
It is clear that Churchward has done numerous years of research, even if his theory never quite seems able to hold water. Some of his reasoning makes sense like the remnants of South Pacific ancient civilizations while some of his ideas seem a bit of a reach like the fact that most ancient civilizations used imagery of the sun, which proved that they were connected to Mu…I mean, really? Full review on my blog: Oct 27, Eric rated it it was amazing.
After second thought, I’m giving this five out of five stars, based on when it was written. Even though much of Churchward’s work would be considered New Age mysticism by today’s standards, his thinking on the origins and ancientness of civilization was revolutionary for its times.
Keep in mind that when he was writing this, the antiquity of the human species itself, let alone that of civilization, was considered by many to be much less than what is commonly accepted today.
Even now, some of his After second thought, I’m giving this five out of five stars, based on when it was written. Even now, some of his ideas, especially that civilization predates the ancient Near East, are still not fully accepted, despite their having been supported by recent archaeological finds.
Having translated ancient tablets, there are fascinating comparisons between different religions and myths. Then there are some hilarious attempts at explaining the geological background to the cataclysmic disappearance of Mu. Despite the fundamental scientific flaws, I was left with some lingering questions: I am not sure what to say about this book. Some of his claims are quite intriguing however I am not in position to judge the connection between Ancent Egypt and Maya writings.
However I am quite suspectful about the tablets that he says he found in India. His claims about the shift of continenets and poles are quite correct with today’s findings. I did not like his language too much and finding a deity god in everything he read in those tablets.
Mu (lost continent) – Wikipedia
Intriguing at times but not only controversial, extremely contentious and basically unreliable. Too many unsupported assertions and farfetched assumptions.
A very opinionated author who is very keen on establishing his authority, if nothing else. The notion of a pre-Atlantean civilisation is intriguing, but this does not help the case much, in my opinion.
You would think in a post-Joseph Smith world the ole “secret tablets I can’t show you that I also keep making new interpretations from” trick wouldn’t work, but by churchwadr old timey racist hucksterism finds a way!
This is really important source book. But there must be more clues to research Best of best by the way.
