New Guinea Mu 2
I had mentioned before that some of the ideas about the size and position about the "Lost Continent of Mu" was probably based on false impressions based on early maps of New Guinea. Here is one such early map sometimes claimed as a "Lost Mu Map" and an overlay for the approximate given position for New Guinea on a standard modern Mercator projection map. This does correspond very closely to the coordinates given by James Churchward for The Lost Continent of Mu.
I may need to add a reminder that in Hawaiian Mythology, "Mu" referred to a race of black Pygmies and that New Guinea was in fact rumoured to have Pygmies living in the interior.
