Famous Quotes

There are no "knowns." There are things we know that we know. There are known unknowns. That is to say there are things that we now know we don't know. But there are also unknown unknowns. There are things we do not know we don't know.

Lemuria or the Kumari Kandam, the myth as it stands!


Hi,

Lemuria or Kumari Kandam or Land of the Civilized or whatever!

It makes up for an interesting read! Sure! But much has been already debated and discussed around this hypothetical, supposedly a sunken kingdom (as it stands now! ). It is not yet proven (like giving any stone works or archaelogical excavations attributing to the then existence of Kumari Kandam or Lemuria or whatever! ) This is not about debunking it! This is just about not getting misguided! Few may claim to debunk it myself. But always understand its called "Burden of Proof" for the person who claims it and not for the the person who debunks it. And this is no different from Santa Claus or Apocalypse myth's. We are fascinated by many fictional stories but that should not construe or influence any part of our belief systems!

As of now its a controversy, its a paradox.. Its a myth.. I just wanted to share this because, I have seen people, whenever they talk about history, whenever they speak about our ancient people, they come up with 'this' (here 'our' stands for the tamil people!).. And thats always gonna weaken the cause !! Beware of myths!
I rest my case :)

*I am open to any suggestions, criticisms or any interesting proofs or sources.. After all, we are all learners. Right?!
