Yes, according to a Japanese explorer who claims to have found ruins of the lost continent of Lemuria, or Mu, "in the waters off Southern Japan." Thanks to a timely tip from a client and friend of the site, I tracked the news story (thank you Great Britain) but could not access the video link she sent. The US media seem to have completely ignored this history-making assertion. The scientist claims the ruins are 4000 years old, which would place them of more recent vintage than we are told in ancient chronicles and more recent definitive authorities. I've included the news story below, so you may evaluate the importance of this discovery for yourselves.
According to The Secret Doctrine, there have been other ages and civilizations before this one. There have been vast eras of human growth and development, following by their decline as other civilizations arose and fell as well.
It is said these are known as "Root Races," and each has 7 sub-races of various types and times. We are told that about 3 million years ago infant humanity began its time of evolving to what it's become at present. The earliest physical humans were said to be "Lemuro-Atlanteans," and lived on the continent of Lemuria, or Mu. This was a land mass said to stretch for thousands of miles in the Southern Hemisphere.
The next definitive Root Race were the Atlanteans, said to exist from about 1 million years ago right up to 9,564 BC when we are told the island of Poseidonus sank in the Atlantic Ocean. This "Root Race" includes such prototypical groups as the Toltecs, Olmecs, Tibetans, Chinese, Semites, Inuits, Phoenicians, Etruscans, Dravidians, Basques, Magyars, and other older "native" groups on every continent.
Over hundreds of thousands of years, we are told that "Atlantis" transformed from a large island almost the size of the Northern Atlantic ocean to two massive islands in the North Atlantic, eventually racked by earthquakes until Atlantis was reduced in its latter centuries to a very large island known to the Greek historians as Poseidonus.
Because of the tremendous overlap of the rise and fall of civilizations, our own Root Race, said to be the 5th such racial wave, began before the sinking of Atlantis. The first pioneers of our "new era" left Atlantis and went to ancient India about 60,000 BC, followed by the second subrace arising in ancient Egypt around the teachings of the "Christos" of that age, Toth-Hermes, about 40,000 BC. The third subrace, said to have migrated to ancient Persia where their teacher was the ancient and venerable Zoroaster, began about 20,000 BC, while the ancient Keltic peoples of Northern and Southern Europe were the 4th subrace, arising about 10,000 BC.
Now that I've given you a little background on the story, here's the news blast from the past:

A Japanese explorer claims to have uncovered the location of the ruins of the lost city of Mu.
The search for the mysterious city which is said to have sunk somewhere in the Pacific Ocean has captivated the popular imagination of adventurers for years.
Many scientists dismiss the existence of Mu (sometimes called Lemuria) as sheer fantasy on the lines of the lost continent of Atlantis.
But marine geologist Masaaki Kimura believes he has found its ruins in the waters off southern Japan.
Undaunted amid persistent scepticism, he has worked for decades on proving that a group of extraordinary rock formations off Japan's southern-most island of Yonaguni is actually the foundations and evidence of an ancient culture that disappeared into the Pacific over 4,000 years ago.
Mr Kamura believes the city had a castle, a shrine, a triumphal arch, Moai-like statues found on Easter Island and even a coliseum once upon a time, when the city was above water.
He said: "Judging by the design and the disposition of the ruins, the city must have looked just like an ancient Roman city. I can envisage that a triumphal arch-like statue stood on the left side of the Coliseum and a shrine over the hill."
Mr Kimura believes the city sunk in earthquake about 3,000 years ago.
However, his claim only has received a frosty reception from most other scientists who say the ruins can be accounted for by natural phenomena such as tidal and volcanic activity.

Here's the video link originally sent by my friend who scored this scoop.
Whether the ruins are of far greater antiquity, or whether Mr. Kamura has discovered the ruins of an ancient Asian civilization of more recent vintage that disappeared under the stormy seas of this Earth, this story has a major place in the history of our modern humanity. I wonder why so-called "scientists" would dismiss it with prejudice, if the point of "science" is to investigate the anomalies of this Earth and come to best evidence of what may have preceded this era?
