Lemuria actually existed – Mythical Evidence

In the reptilian literature, the sunken continent of Lemuria or Mu is sometimes shown as the homeland of a reptilian race of creatures, often identified with dragons. Reptilian humanoids, snakepeople, or lizardmen are common motifs in folklore, crypto-zoology, science fiction, mythology, and ufology. They are presented as being evolved on Earth parallel to mankind or as the remains of a prehuman civilization, eventually extraterrestrial. The myths and legends of many cultures throughout history abound in reptilian humanoids; in the Indian Naga, reptilian beings are said to live underground and interact with human beings on the surface. It is said that they once lived on a continent of the Indian Ocean that sank beneath the waves, which points to Lemuria. Indian texts also refer to a reptilian race called the Sarpa. Perhaps the supposedly best known of all ‘‘lives’’ on the other side of the Pacific; it highlights the early prehistoric connections between India, America, and Eurasia. The Aztec main god and sky god, Quetzalcoatl, the ‘‘feathered serpent,’’ was variously depicted either as a man, a serpent, or a reptilian humanoid.

Similar impersonation appears in the Bible in the book of Genesis, when God punishes the serpent for deceiving Eve by decreeing, ‘‘You should go on your belly from now on,’’ implying that the serpent had legs before then. Thus the snake is therefore often portrayed in Europe as a woman with a snake’s tail. East Asians venerate the dragons, and the underwater realms are referred to as where the dragon kings and their descendants live. The main mythology states that there is a direct human lineage descending from dragons, claimed often by East Asian emperors, who were believed to be able to interchange from humans to dragons at will. This lineage is not solely characteristic of Asian mythology; Greek mythology also abounds of reptilians like Cecrops I, the mythical first king of Athens who was a combination of man and snake. Lamia, a child-devouring female, was half woman–half serpent, and the god of the cold north wind, Boreas, was a winged man bearing snakes. Paleontologist Dale A. Russell came up recently with the hypothesis that the Chicxulub meteorite, which left a crater 180 km wide on the Yucatan Peninsula and on the surrounding seabed some 65 million years ago, did not exterminate all the dinosaurs and some of them became intelligent bipods called troodontids, who had fingers and binocular vision similar to humans, enforcing the rationale of the mythical persistence of such creatures (Russell 2009).
