Last Atlantis Book You'll Ever Have To Read!
2, 2001 -TEMPE, AZ . . . Gene D. Matlock claims to have written
the definitive book about the location of the "lost continent" of Atlantis,
and Dandelion Books will publish it in the spring of 2001. According to
Matlock, who is a linguist, historian, archaeologist and educator, the secret
surrounding the location of Atlantis -- and thus, proof that it really existed
-- can be traced back to the "forbidden letter 'A.'"
Says Matlock in the Introduction to his book, The Last Atlantis Book You'll
Ever Have to Read!: "When I was a young college student in Mexico, I took
a course in linguistics. This course and my experiences in studying Spanish,
Portuguese, Malay, and Nahuatl, taught me that a word is much more than
a combination of strange sounds.
Each one tells the history of the people who use it. Only Mexico is named
Atlan; Itlan; Otlan; Tlan; Tollan, etc. No other nation on earth can make
that claim! This being the case, and every nation on earth being what it
is, Atlantis is Atlantis! Anyone who can bring himself to see clearly that
something is what it is, need look no further for Atlantis. Atlantis is
what and where it is: in Mexico!
"Now, I in no way insist that Atlantis was or is exactly described as Plato.He,
too, was the victim of several thousand years of brainwashing and collective
concepts of mystical Egyptian priests. Without a doubt, the stories handed
down to him were confused with other tales, such as those of Thera and Crete.
"We must never forget that "Atlantis" is a compound word:
"A-tala-n-tis,"The important thing to consider about whether Mexico is or
is not Atlantis is that the root Tlan/Talan means 'Surface People' in Sanskrit,
Greek, and Nahuatl. That root is the real name of Atlantis.
"During all these millenniums people have not wanted to use the 'A' word.They
like to say that Atlantis really was Santorini, Crete, Indonesia, the North
Pole, England, a place in Outer Space, or just a mystical idea. I have
dared to say out loud that 'A' word, even in front of scholars."

story is richly laced with linguistic references to Sanskrit and the strong
connection between the early settlers of India and North America:"From
the start, I was impressed with the high number of 'Tlan, Atlan,Itlan,
etc.' suffixes in Mexican place names.
Also, the ancient Mexicans said that centuries ago, they immigrated to
the Americas from a country across the sea, whose name was 'Tollan' or
"From my Indic studies, I knew that in Sanskrit, 'Tala' means 'Surface;
top of the ground.' By adding an 'N,' I get 'Talan' or 'People who live
on top of the ground.' If I added 'Deza, Desa, Tesa or Desha,' I got 'Talandesa'
or 'The Surface Nation or Region.' Often, in ancient India, people would
just add 'te, de, tes, des,' and the like. Thus, instead of saying 'Talandesa,'
I could say, 'Talantes.'
The intermediary 'A's' were pronounced so rapidly that one heard only

"Brahm" was the "Aryan god," "Abrahm" was "not the Aryan god."

a pin through India," says Matlock, "so that the point of the pin comes

of the Underworld' was, in fact, not an infernal region, but the part
of the world opposite India: Mesoamerica. Even we Americans call Australia
'The Land Down Under.'

He describes himself as a "fanatical lover of travel."
