In keeping with my plan to use Fridays to highlight some of the best work others have been doing, I wanted to share with everyone a podcast in which Jack Churchward of the My Mu blog interviews Dr. Jeb Card about his research into the Mu Stones, a series of 2,600 stone tablets excavated by William Niven in the 1920s. Here is how Niven described his find, as quoted by James Churchward in The Children of Mu (1931):
It was in 1921, however, in the course of my excavations at Santiago Ahuizoctla, a hamlet contiguous to Amantla, that I came across the first of the now famous carved stone tablets at a depth of 4 meters from the surface of the ground. This discovery was at once so singular and so startling that I became instantly fired with an immense desire to find more of these tablets, if more indeed were to be found. To this end, I made a systematic exploration of all the clay pits, sand pits and tepetate quarries that existed within an area of 20 square miles and my arduous labors were amply rewarded, for by December, 1923, or in less than three years, I had unearthed 975 of these mysterious tablets. (Now 2600)
Many of the most important of these were found at Ahuizoctla under and around an altar which had an outline figure upon it painted in red and yellow. The paints used were mostly from oxide of iron. In 1924 Dr. Morley of the Carnegie Institution said that the strange symbols on the carved stones and altar were unlike anything he had ever seen in Mexico or elsewhere.
Churchward, writing in Children of Mu, dated the tablets to around 10,000 BCE but suspected they might be even older. They were, he said, the “key to the universe” and contained hidden meanings that would unveil the truth about history and science.
I will leave it to readers to listen to the excellent discussion in the YouTube video below. Suffice it to say that the Mu Stones (or Niven Tablets, as they are also known) are not about to rewrite history.
