It was suggested in an October 30th 1955 edition of the San Francisco Examiner (oldest known reference to the word "Bigfoot" in the media, thanks to Daniel Perez of The Bigfoot Times), that the American "Bigfoot" may be a highly developed survivor of that lost continent of Lemuria. Scholars theorized that this ancient land, located in the Indian Ocean, purported sunk beneath the sea over 12,000 years ago.
This lost-continent theory was used to explain the isolation of lemurs on Madagascar while related fossils were spread across Africa and South-East Asia. Author Madame Blavatsky claimed Lemuria as a pre-Atlantis source of Ancient Wisdom. She "revealed" that the Lemurians had four armed egg-laying hermaphrodites with a third eye.
Last week, Bigfoot DNA expert Dr. Melba Ketchum revealed that Bigfoot is part lemur part human. Could the lost land of Lemuria explain this connection?
