Lost continents or the lost lands are Antediluvian civilizations 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 the rumored Hollow Earth. There was regions and lands existing during pre-history having since disappeared as a result of catastrophic or other geological phenomenon.
Atlantis means 'city of Atlas'. Atlas mountains located in north-west Africa are apparently named after King Atlas, the first king of Mauritania. Mediterranean maps by Herodotus in 450 BC, locate 'Atlantes' people between Atlas mountains and the Eye of Sahara, also known as Richat Structure. Some theories suggest this Richat Structure was the city of Atlantis, before it submerged and and re-apeared.
There is some support for the theory that Antarctica was once Atlantis, however other studies show it was actually located in the Atlantic Ocean. Researcher David Wilcock claims 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. It is said that a civilization from the known planet Xylanthia, located in the Sirius constellation, is where the inhabitants of Atlantis originated from.
Lemuria, more commonly known as Katalkol or Kumari Kandam, is a continent that was located in the Indian ocean off the shore's of India and Sri-Lanka, which was said to have sunk due to mysterious circumstances. Most researchers claim it was due to the "great flood" that is described in many ancient text. Over the years artifacts and other trinkets from the sunken land have been said to wash up on the shore's of Sri-Lanka, supporting proof for the lost continent existence. It is also stated that Kumari Kandam was the original home land of the Tamil people.
One of the more interesting rumors about the continent is, it is said to have been home to a technology advanced civilization inhabitanted by many different humanoid race's.
In 1896, the lost continent of Mu was proposed by 19th-century traveler and writer Augustus Le Plongeon. In 1926, James Churchward asserted that Mu was once located in the Pacific. Two years later, H.P. Lovecraft's short story "The Call of Cthulhu", published in Weird Tales of June 1928, R'lyeh mentioning the continent of Mu. He plots it's location near the Pacific pole of inaccessibility, also known as "Point Nemo" (48°52.6′S 123°23.6′W), a point in the Pacific Ocean farthest from any land mass. August Derleth also contributed to the mythos giving coordinates that was likewise near this point.

Long before Tahitians(Hawaiians) lived in Hawaii, a race of people known as Mu were living there. As per the ice age cycle, 12,000 years ago the islands of Maui, Molokai, Lana’i and Kaho’olawe would have been one land mass, with the big Islands of Hawaii, Oahu and Kau’ai being close by. This would have been regarded as a mini continent at least.
