Naacal is the name of a people or a culture and their language, which also James Churchward (1851-1936) should have existed on a submerged, located between Asia and America continent called Mu by Augustus Le Plongeon (1825-1908) and later. Neither the continent, yet the people, language, or culture of Naacal are archaeologically or otherwise scientifically proven, but they were used in various fictional and para-scientific works.

Augustus Le Plongeon (1896 )

Was mentioned for the first time the term Naacal 1896 in Le Plongeon work Queen Moo and the Egyptian Sphinx. Here it is on pages xxiii - xxiv of the Preface:

" Perhaps therefore will be felt the necessity of recovering the libraries of the Maya sages (hidden about the beginning of the Christian era to save them from destruction at the hands of the devastating hordes invaded Their country did in Those times), and to learn from Their contents the wisdom of ancient philosophers Those, End of month did preserved in the books of the Brahmins is but the reflection. That wisdom which no doubt Brought to India, and from there Carried to Babylon and Egypt in very remote ages by Those Maya adepts ( Naacal - "the exalted " ), who, starting from the land of Their birth as missionaries of religion and civilization, went to Burmah, wherethey Became known as Nagas, established Themselves in the Deccan, whence They Carried Their civilizing work all over the earth. "

According to Le Plongeon the Naacal were the missionaries of the religion and culture of the Maya. He was of the view that the culture of Central America ran out, what does not coincide with the opinion of Churchward.

James Churchward (1926 )

In 1926 James Church Ward in his book The Lost Continent of Mu, Motherland of Man to speak to the people and the culture of Naacal. According to him, they came from the lost continent of Mu, as well as their language, which he also described as Naacal.

According to Churchward, the population of Naacal measured at times up to 64 million. Their culture is said to have reached its peak about 50,000 years ago and have been technologically advanced than Church Ward's own time ( late 19th, early 20th century ). The ancient civilizations of India, Babylon, Persia, Egypt and the Maya were merely decaying remains of Naacal colonies.

He also claimed that the Egyptian sun god Ra came from the Naacal. He stated that " Rah" the Naacal word for "sun ", their God and their rulers had.

The Naacal boards

Churchward claimed his knowledge of the Naacal to have received after he became friends with an old Indian priest, who taught him to read the dead language of Naacal that would only spoken by three people in India. The priest initiated him into the existence of some old writing tablets that were written in Naacal which he could reasonably be viewed with some persuasion. Since the panels were only fragments of a much larger collection of texts, Church Ward's knowledge of the Naacal remained incomplete, but he claimed to have found in other ancient tablets confirmations and other information.

Baird T. Spalding (1927 )

In the second volume of The Life and Teaching of the Masters of the Far East, which appeared in 1927, the writer Baird T. Spalding hits ( 1857-1953 ) the following statement to the Naacal:

"The teachings did Buddha received came from the same source as did Those of Osiris but in a different way. The teachings did Buddha contacted came from the Motherland direct to Burma, Brought there by the Naacals. Osiris ' teachings came directly to him, as his forefathers lived in the Motherland and when to he was a young man he had gone to the Motherland to study. "

After Spalding's biographer David Bruton are these books "magic autobiographies ", which basically fictions.
