Another response to Kokopelli a Hindu God?:
I'm all with you and I'm sure I'm not the only one about this lunatic Matlock. I'm a fan of Maya and Olmec culture and to hear that they all originated from India left me questioning this Matlock nut. Nothing linked, his theories were way off about native american culture. He should be banned. Confusing people like that. At first after reading a few articles of his including your chat with him. I thought what's this guys obsession with the Hindus? I thought he must be Indian or something? Then I saw a photo of him and he's white skinned. He looks European. Then I found this article he wrote that answered everything. Here's the link: http://www.hindu-religion.net/showflat/cat/hinduism/67147/65/collapsed/3/o/1.
In this article he says,
"It is not my intention in this article to defend my great-great-great, etc. grandparents role in that great war but to show the Indian people how they and my great-etc., grandparents influenced every crook and cranny of this world."
This is obviously something "personal" obsession for him like stated in your article,"fanatic." He like perhaps everyone else is looking for something to be proud off. Can't blame him it's not really his fault there's racist in the world. Anyways. Thanks for listening. Please also keep me updated on this nut and if he comes up with anything new. Like some evidence.
Thanks for your comments.
>> He should be banned. <<
It's best to refute this kind of person, not ban him. That's the approach I take, anyway.
>> Then I saw a photo of him and he's white skinned. He looks European. <<
He never claimed to be anything but European to me.
>> Then I found this article he wrote that answered everything. Here's the link: http://www.hindu-religion.net/showflat/cat/hinduism/67147/65/collapsed/3/o/1. <<
I hope this article doesn't deceive anyone. Despite Matlock's claim of having "hundreds of solid proofs," his arguments are literally based on coincidences between a few words and images among the millions of possible matches. Nothing else.
If you read carefully, you see he precedes all his claims with terms like "must be," "probably is," or "may be." In other words, he's asserting his claims without any real proof. He wishes they were true, but he can't prove them with any evidence acceptable to the scientific community.
Most telling is his complete lack of archaeological evidence. That is, he doesn't have a shred of physical evidence proving his claims, although verifiable artifacts would litter the world if the Hindus had indeed conquered it. Where's the first object in America, England, or anywhere else whose chemical composition proves it came from India, for instance?
>> This is obviously something "personal" obsession for him like stated in your article, "fanatic." <<
>> He like perhaps everyone else is looking for something to be proud off. <<
I guess. But if he's European, I don't see the benefit of claiming Hindus created everything.
I think he just found his few word matches and became obsessed with them. His decided his only hope of making a mark on the world was to come up with a radical theory that was entirely his own. I imagine he's like the people who claim they were abducted by UFOs. They convince themselves they're right because they subconsciously crave the attention.
>> Please also keep me updated on this nut and if he comes up with anything new. Like some evidence. <<
I doubt I'll hear from him again. He allegedly blocked my e-mail after contacting me first because he didn't like my critiques of his theories.
Let me know if you hear anything from or about him. I'm particularly interested in the great public revelation he's been promising for years.
