In 1926, William Niven, discovered ruins 31 feet below the surface of a city destroyed by a massive earthquake. The earthquake was so powerful that it smashed and crushed buildings made of stone and concrete. The buildings were totally shattered.
Additionally, these ruins were covered with volcanic ash 2 to 3 feet thick. This ash was then covered with 31 feet of sand, gravel, and boulders and two other buried city pavements indicating that the ruined city was submerged by a massive tidal wave.
The actual dig was over 31 feet below the surface. There was a layer of soil one foot deep, then, another layer of gravel and sand with broken pottery nine feet deep and a street pavement below that. Below the pavement there was another layer of small boulders and gravel and sand six feet deep followed by a second street pavement. Below this second pavement there was found an additional fourteen feet of small boulders, gravel, and sand followed by two to three feet of ash. Below the ash there was a buried city and a third pavement. The age of this city has yet to be determined.

How can this happen? The site of the discovery is in the Valley of Mexico located 7,000 feet above sea level. Furthermore, this valley is surrounded with mountains that rise an additional 5,000 feet. For a tidal wave to strike here would require that the site be lower, closer to sea level. Just when did this happen? Was it, 10,000 years, or 50,000 years, or a million years?
The uplifting of mountain ranges occur when land masses are subducted (slide under) another land mass, in this case the Valley of Mexico uplifting both the valley plateau and the mountain ranges. This is a slow process. Tens of millions of years would be required.
However, William Niven’s description of the site gives a clue to the date of this city’s destruction. The massive earthquake, followed by thick ash, followed by a tidal wave is characteristic of what would have occurred when the meteorite struck the Yucatan coast and killed off the dinosaurs some 66 million years ago. I know, archaeologists will object; however, the description of the site never-the- less fits with the result of such an impact.
There is more. William Niven, conducted his research at a number of clay pits in the Valley of Mexico about 6 miles from Mexico City. The area he examined was 20 miles in length by 10 miles in width. That is 200 square miles. The destroyed city was very large, possibly inhabited by millions of individuals. Keep in mind that New York City is only 305 square miles and has a population of over 8 million people.
William Niven’s work has been neglected, mostly because he provided it to James Churchward the author of the book, The Lost Continent of Mu. Unlike Churchward, Niven was a better scientist and his work needs to be re-studied.
We now face a quandary. Just who were the residents of this lost city? There are some who believe that there is a connection between Mexico and an extinct civilization on Mars. If this is the case, then, the connection seems to have taken place during the Cretaceous Period, the time of the dinosaurs. I have dated La Venta, the Olmec city, at 103.8 million years of age.
If a connection did exist with Mars, then, this city may have been a colony of Mars. If this is the case, then, we can also ask: “Is Mars the lost continent of Mu”?
