"The Old Testament is a Hebrew translation by Moses of Zoroaster’s Zend-Avesta; the Zoroastrian scriptures originally being brought to the ancient Near East from Mu via India and Burma."
This nearly echoes Churchward’s,
"Moses wrote early books of O.T. from Egyptian temple records in hieroglyphs and symbols."
He also gives this same route for the Naacal tablets, from which both Zoroastrian and Osirian religions sprang, so both statements about Moses mesh. In Churchward’s Books of the Golden Age, published posthumously from his notes, there is an illustration of a tablet supposed to have been written by Moses - later duplicated.
I wish to address these points individually. 1. 'The most blatant fabrication' was not done by James Churchward in translating a tablet that says Moses was the child of Hatshepsut. In the modern day printing of 'The Books of the Golden Age', a volume from 1927 that was to remain unpublished, on page 195 is an illustration of this tablet, as shown below:
James Churchward’s mention of vimana or the mythical flying palaces or chariots from Sanskrit and Hindu writings have become references in many books and some even ascribe their interest in these flying ships to his discussion of them in the following passage:
Hindu Manuscript, Date unknown (B.C.): “When morning dawned, Rama, taking the celestial car which Pushpaka had sent to him by Vivpishand, stood ready to depart. Self-moving was that car; it was large and finely painted. It had two stories and many chambers with windows and was draped with flags and banners. It gave forth a melodious sound as it coursed along its airy way.”
Hindu Manuscript, Dated 500 B.C.: “Rawan, King of Ceylon (?), flew over the enemy’s army and dropped bombs, causing many casualties. Eventually Rawan was captured and slain and his flying machine fell into the hands of the Hindu chieftain Ram Chandra who flew it all the way back to his capital Adjudhia in Northern India.”
But the Colonel had over a quarter million (equivalent to about 28 million millennium bucks), and by 1922 had re-embarked on his original pursuit, Mu. Both the Le Plongeons had died, and the issue of Mu versus Atlantis hadn’t been settled! Every record, inscription, legend or artifact that the French explorer saw as proof of an Atlantean colonization of Yucatan, Mexico and South America, Churchward could translate into a sign of influx from the west. The "cradle of civilization," Le Plongeon believed, was in Atlantis, and Mu-ans came after, or maybe were transplanted Atlanteans. Not so! countered the Colonel; Hindu records proved Mu to be the motherland. In the last analysis, Lemuria doubtless preceded its eastern counterpart as the primal spot where man first appeared which, according to Cayce, was 10-112 million years ago, in a material body considerably less dense than now. Philostratus, in "Life of Tyana," says "the first Egyptians were a colony from India" and historian Valniiki, in the Ramayana, writes:
"The Naacals first established themselves in the Deccan, India, and from there carried their religion and learning to the colonies of Babylonia and Egypt. Their Nubian settlement was called Maioo on the present site of Suakin."
Supposedly, this preceded the colony started at Sais, the "mouth of the Nile" by Thoth, son of an Atlantean priest, in 14,000 BC, with a temple for teaching the Osirian religion. According to Cayce. by 10,090 BC the Atlanteans had arrived from their sinking continent, adding to the conflict between the Egyptians and attackers from Carpathia (Ibex Rebellion).
During this time the Great Pyramid was built, with Hermes (Thoth) principal architect; the Sphinx was "already there." With this suggestion of black (Africa), red (Atlantis) and white (Carpathia) races within pre-dynastic Egypt, it is not surprising to find wall paintings still extant in Egyptian temples and pyramids depicting all three. Original Lemurians (brown race still existing in Pacific regions) and those from the Gobi (yellow) or their descendants found their way as well to Egypt, the melting pot 15 millennia ago. The white and yellow races sojourned southward, according to Cayce, with the,
"turning of the axis, climactic changes, and uprisings on Atlantis, they came more into that portion of Egypt. India. Persia and Arabia."

Colonel' James Churchward (1851-1936) was a British engineer and patentholder. However, his most famous invention was 'the land of Mu', an imaginary counterpart of Atlantis, supposedly situated in the Pacific.
