Researcher of ancient mysteries, Frank Joseph Hoff, spoke about his contention that Atlantis is located on land under the South China Sea near Indonesia, based on the work of the late Brazilian geologist Arysio Santos. A continent that contained Lemuria was damaged around 74,000 years ago from volcanic eruptions, and the residents rebuilt their civilization over the next 60,000 years into what was known as Atlantis, he outlined. They were a seafaring trading empire, with their capital city using the Lombak Strait which connects the Java Sea to the Indian Ocean, he continued. The word Atlantis, first used by Plato, actually refers to the opposite side of the world from Europe, he noted.

Atlantis was known for having huge elephants and at the Bandung Museum in Indonesia, there are fossil skeletons of giant elephants, close to the size of woolly mammoths, Hoff added. He also talked about the Indonesian Gunung Padang Pyramid Mountain (related images), which may date as far back as 14,000 to 16,000 years ago, according to carbon testing. Geologist Andang Bachtiar, a member of the Indonesian Task Force that studies ancient ruins in Indonesia, briefly joined the show, and reported there is evidence for a devastating ancient tsunami.

Frank Joseph Hoff graduated in June of 1982 from the University of Washington School of Business in Seattle where he earned a Bachelor degree in Business Administration with concentrations in both Marketing and Management & Organization.

From a very young age Mr. Hoff became very interested in the sciences and ancient mysteries (i.e. The Lost City and Continent of Atlantis). He was further inspired by such movies as the Indiana Jones series (i.e. Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Temple of Doom & The Last Crusade), watching documentaries, reading magazines on Ancient Archaeology and Lost Civilizations), and by listening to radio talk shows such as Coast to Coast AM (i.e. Art Bell, George Noory) and Jeff Rense Internet Radio and by attending or facilitating conferences on ancient mysteries and the unknown. In 1996 Mr. Hoff met up with Richard Hoagland (the former science advisor to Walter Cronkite) at a Mars conference in Seattle and started doing some pro bono research for him on his off hours. It is while doing research for Mr. Hoagland that Mr. Hoff came across the unusual work of a Brazilian professor by the name of Arysio Nunes dos Santos (Ph.D.) on his Atlantis website ( Atlantis - The Lost Continent Finally Found.

In 1998 Mr. Hoff contacted Prof. Santos via an e-mail to his son Bernardo. Then in 1999 after many conversations with Prof. Santos, Mr. Hoff became his understudy, researcher and business agent in order to let the whole world know about Prof. Santos' amazing discoveries by helping him to get his new book published on Atlantis in English until the professor's untimely death on September 09, 2005 less than two months after its release. He is continuing Prof. Santos' seminal discovery work by still being his understudy regarding his data, research work, papers, doing research on Atlantis himself, foreign travel to ancient sites, speaking in behalf of the late professor at conferences (i.e.- UFO X-Fest in San Leandro, CA in 2011 and in Bogor & Jakarta, Indonesia in 2010, Egypt Trip 2006; Eagle Creek, OR. 2006, The Bay Area UFO Expo 2009) and by doing radio, TV & internet interviews (i.e.- Coast to Coast AM, Unzipping Reality, Blog Talk Radio, Vortex Radio News, Stardust Radio Network (WakeUp USA), Late Night in the Midlands, The Ray Carr show, Etc.). Also in late September 2012 Mr. Hoff and members of his Atlantis Team gave a power point presentation and addressed questions in Bandung, Indonesia to the Indonesian Presidential Task Force on ancient artifacts and ancients sites in Indonesia regarding the late Dr. Santos’ work on Atlantis.

In addition, Mr. Hoff has continued the partnership started by Dr. Santos with Capt. Hans and Rose Berekoven of “The Sunda Shelf Archaeology Project” and their 19 meters long Southern Sun yacht expedition team that is based on the island of Boneo in the SE Asia ( Mr. Hoff is currently president of Atlantis Publications, Inc. (named by Prof. Santos) in order to promote and market the late Dr. Santos' book: Atlantis - The Lost Continent Finally Found {The Definitive Localization of Plato's Lost Civilization} in English, now being distributed by North Atlantic Books and Random House.
