Alexander Muster and his foster son Basil Bemmelen(a) are two Dutch ‘researchers’ who promotes the idea that Atlantis was located in Aden, now a part of Yemen. They does so, in a rather chaotic style with an irritating overuse of uppercase letters(b), on various Internet forums and have been barred from at least one site. Muster usually posts under the name of ‘bluehue’. One Dutch blogger has expressed exasperation(c) at the barrage of emails from Muster which he now treats as spam. Muster’s theory is similar to that of Stan Deyo, author of The Vindicator Scrolls.
Aden was formerly a British possession and is now part of war-torn Yemen. Stan Deyo, author of The Vindicator Scrolls, in 1989 located Atlantis in Aden. A Dutch amateur Egyptologist, Alexander Muster, also promotes a similar idea through a variety of Internet forums. A former French police chief, Jacques Hébert, has proposed that the Yemeni island of Socotra was part of the Atlantean civilisation.
>Yemen’s long history was highlighted just before the end of the last century, when a group of megaliths were discovered, by chance, on the coastal plain of western Yemen(c).<
In 2008, Gary Vey and John McGovern claimed to have evidence that the Ark of the Covenant had been buried in Yemen (the ancient kingdom of Saba)(b).
>Immanuel Velikovsky placed the Garden of Eden in Aden(d).<
A recent Russian website(a) also places Atlantis in the Gulf of Aden opposite the legendary land of Punt in what is now Somalia.

Stan Deyo is American by birth but moved to Australia in the early 1970’s. He is the author of The Vindicator Scrolls in which he opted for Aden (Eden), now part of Yemen, as the site of Atlantis(a). He places the Plain of Atlantis in what is now eastern Saudi Arabia adjacent to a Persian Gulf extending further north(e). The Persian Gulf itself to have been the original Atlantic!
Alexander Muster, an amateur Dutch Egyptologist puts forward(c) a vaguely similar idea. Deyo identifies the Lebanon and the Anti-Lebanon Mountains as the Pillars of Heracles!
In 2014, Deyo chose Tanzania as the location of the Garden of Eden(h). This idea has been echoed elsewhere and more recently on a website dealing with the history of Israel(f) and on a Christian website where the Ngorongoro Crater is specified(g).
Deyo seems to subscribe to his own brand of religious fundamentalism, referring constantly to biblical characters and events. He dates the creation of the world to around 6000 BC and It appears that he believes that India was connected to Africa less than 5,000 years ago!
He also subscribes to the Expanding Earth Hypothesis, with which I am sympathetic. However, when he ventured into the realms of ‘free energy, anti-gravity and extraterrestrial visitors he lost me completely. A lot of research has gone into The Vindicator Scrolls although some readers may find his use of so many mathematical formulae makes much of the content inaccessible.
Some less than complimentary comments regarding Deyo are to be found on the Internet(d).
