The Reptilians Are Taking Over!

Updated on January 19, 2017

The Reptilians are taking over the Earth!

Reptilians are taking over the Earth.

Or they already have taken over the Earth.

It all depends on who you listen to.

I think I really got into conspiracy theories when I got a copy of Umberto Eco's Foucault's Pendulum for Christmas one year.
I read it and was amazed that a lot of the theories put forth in the book, were things that people actually believed.
And with the wonders of the internet, I was actually able to research these things for myself.

In looking around, I ran across a man named David Icke.
David is a writer, a public speaker, a former footballer and a former media personality.
His theory was that blood drinking, extra-dimensional, shape shifting reptilians are trying to take over civilization.

Or maybe they already have.

Now you take a person like me that has read science fiction and comic books since they could read, and this was pure gold.
David said that Hollywood was almost totally taken over by these creatures, as was the world's governments.

And he named names.

George Bush Sr., George Bush Jr., Richard Cheney, Al Gore, Colin Powell, Queen Elizabeth (and all four sons including Prince Charles and Prince Andrew), Donald Rumsfeld and Colin Powell were just a few of the reptilians that were already in power.

I ran around the internet researching this stuff and looking at videos on YouTube and was amazed at the number of users I found that were totally convinced by David's ideas.

Of course, David didn't actually come up with reptilians running things.

Reptilians in Modern Times

Moving up further through history, the founder of Theosophy and the Theosophical Society, Helena Blavatsky wrote about "Dragon-men" who had a mighty civilization on the Lemurian continent in her book "The Secret Doctrine" (1888).
So you can see that the idea of Reptilians walking among us humans is nothing new.

And it's carried over into modern times.

Over at the website, Brian Dunning has suggested that an article in the Los Angeles Times back in 1934 may have actually been the starting point of the modern day reptilian theory.
In the article Brian talks about, a geophysical mining engineer named G.Warren Shufelt said that he found subterranean labyrinths beneath Los Angeles and that they led to an underground city.
The city had supposedly been built by an advanced race of "Lizard People" to escape surface catastrophes some 5000 years ago.
Yeah, it was an article in the Los Angeles Times.

Reptilians in Ancient History

Go way back to the Bible.

Who whispered in Eve's ear and brought about the downfall of mankind?

The Serpent.

Yeah we all know that Satan was the serpent, but he didn't take the form of a bunny did he?

He chose a serpent.

And he gave reptiles a bad name in Christianity.

"And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years"

Revelation 20:2

But Christianity wasn't the only place to find serpents and snake-people in ancient times.

Though not everyone gave them a bad rap.

Boreas was the Greek god of the north wind and the bringer of winter.

He was described by the Greek traveler and geographer Pausanias as a winged man with serpents instead of legs.

The mythical king of Athens, Cecrops I, was said to be half man, half snake.

Although to be fair, some stories say he had a fish-tail.

Glycon was possibly the figure head of a snake cult in Macedonian.

Or it may have been a hoax perpetrated by the Greek prophet Alexander of Abonutichus.

Either way, Macedonians loved their snake cults.

Actually evidence of ancient snake cults have been found in Canaan (Israel, Lebanon), Megiddo (a hill in modern Israel), Gezer (midway between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv), the temple at Hazor (Tell el-Qedah), and Shechem (Salim).

The Gorgons were three sisters who had hair made out of living, venomous snakes, and a gaze that could turn people to stone.

Then there was the Lamia in Greek Mythology that were half woman and half serpent, and ate children.

The Dragon Kings from Chinese mythology were sometimes depicted as reptilians.

Chinese mythology also had Fu Xi and his sister Nüwa, who were both depicted with snake-like lower halves of their bodies.

Chinese mythology also had the Legend of the White Snake, about a white snake that took on human form.

The Naga in Hindu mythology were deities or class of being that could take the form of a big snake, usually a King Cobra.

The Ancient Egyptians had the crocodile-headed god Sobek.

Some of the djinn in Islamic mythology are described as looking like dogs, vultures, snakes or even dragons.

Zahhak, an evil figure in Iranian mythology, is also known as Azi Dahaka.

Azi is the Avestan word for serpent or dragon.

In Ferdowsi's poem, the Shahnama, he grew a serpent out of each shoulder that had to be fed human brains.

Of course since he is tied into 2012, everyone has probably heard of Quetzalcoatl (the "feathered serpent"), the creator god and sky god of the Aztecs.

In the same area, you had Gukumatz ("sovereign plumed serpent") of the Popol Vuh, who created humanity along with the aid of the god, Huracan and Kukulkan ("Plumed Serpent") the Mayan snake deity.

Funny, it wasn't until the 1990s that scientists discovered evidence that some dinosaurs may have been feathered?

Reptilians on TV

The British TV series Doctor Who (I love that show!) may be one of the biggest perpetrators of the reptilian idea.

There were the Ice Warriors, an extraterrestrial race of reptilian-like humanoids (1967), the Draconians, another extraterrestrial reptilian race (1973), the Silurians, another race of reptile-like humanoids that were a little different, they were from the Earth, before the rise of man. They were originally called The Sea Devils (1970).

And in the US, we had the Sleestaks from Land of the Lost that were large, green reptilian and insectoid looking humanoids (1974-1976).

Star Trek the Original Series had the humanoid reptiles, The Gorn.

(Who, by the way, hissed a lot like Sleestaks did)

Later incarnations of Star Trek also had the Cardassians, Jem'Hadar, Voth, Tosk and the Xindi-Reptilians.

In Stargate SG-1, the world conquering parasites from the planet P3X-888, the Goa'uld, are referred to by Jack O'Neill as "snakes" or "snakeheads" because of their serpentine forms.

Of course the TV series V could be seen as giving a lot of ideas to the Reptilian conspiracy theorists.

It started in 1983 as a two-part television miniseries, and then was followed by a 1984 three-part miniseries and a one-hour weekly television series from 1984 to 1985.

If you watch the original series, V watches like a primer for David Icke's The Biggest Secret that came out in 1999.

And I have to mention a little known 1972 TV movie called "Gargoyles" that has a lot of the popular reptilian theories of today already built in.

As in been around since the dawn of man, lives in underground dwellings etc.

Well she looks kinda scary here.....

Reptilians, The Bottom Line

So bottom line here.....

Are we really being manipulated by the before mentioned blood drinking, extra-dimensional, shape shifting reptilians?

Or are they just a scapegoat so that we can blame someone (or something) else for the evil in the world?

Sorta like "The Devil made me do it"?

And has media unintentionally made the idea of extraterrestrial (and earth-bound) humanoid lizards easier to believe in?

Or, are the evil snakes just using the media to cover their own tracks?

"It's only a dream, go back to sleep"?

That, you will have to decide for yourselves.

Update: Advanced dinosaurs may rule other planets!

It sounds like the plot to a science fiction story, but new scientific research hypothesizes that "advanced dinosaurs" may have evolved on other planets in the universe.

According to Dr. Ronald Breslow, the advanced versions of T. rex and other dinosaurs would likely be monstrous creatures with the intelligence and cunning of humans."

Update - Reptilians Vs Superheroes!

Have you noticed that this summer, the Marvel superheroes seem to be working overtime to eliminate the Reptilian menace?

In this summers blockbuster "The Avengers". Loki's army is the Chitauri, who in the comics are a race of extraterrestrial reptilian shape shifters and in the movie are grey-skinned, six-fingered reptilian humanoids.

In the animated Marvel movies "Ultimate Avengers" and "Ultimate Avengers 2", the Chitauri are shown as seven feet tall reptilian creatures.

And yes back in 1999 Zulu Sangoma and Sanusi Vusamazulu Credo Mutwa said this about the reptilians....

"And there is another name by which these creatures are known. This name is Chitauli. Now, the word Chitauli means "the dictators, the ones who tell us the law". In other words, "they who tell us, secretly, what we are to do. Now, it is said that these Chitauli did a number of things to us when they came to this planet."

I'm gonna assume Mark Millar and Bryan Hitch seized upon that name to tie in their Chitauri with Credo's Chitauli.

Not that Millar and Hitch were actually to warn us about something.....

And "The Amazing Spider-Man", Spidey will be taking on...The Lizard!

(I wish I had the "Dun Dun DUN!" sound effect)

So Marvel...what are you saying....?

The Watch - Reptilian Alien

UPDATE: More Reptilian Aliens?

If you saw the 2012 "comedy" (ahem) The Watch, you saw even more reptilian aliens that could steal their victims' skin and disguise themselves as humans.

Is it becoming cliché now?

Over at Bloody Disgusting there is an article about "the previous incarnation" of the Jurassic Park IV script.

The story centered around genetically engineered human-dinosaur hybrids.....

I swear Icke is FEEDING these people information!

Anyway here is the article .....

      Google "Mutwa Credo". David Icke has interviewed him. Interesting fellow. Apparently he can see them shape shifting. Decide for yourself...:)

      I do believe that there's some reptilian influence on our race -- humans. Unfortunately, they've developed to look just like us. If only they did look like these pics we could recognize them and run.

      Thanks! I was linked here from a forum when I asked if the Evil Reptilian theory influenced V (the original series). I started wondering about it after I saw somebody's avatar somewhere that showed Obama with a lizard face poking through the human facade (his human face in his hands that he had clearly torn off). Made me think of all those face tearing off scenes in V.

      @ismeedee: I haven't read any of Icke's books, but I've watched some of the Youtube vids (one an interview). I do find truth in some of the things he says. Some things I haven't the faintest idea about, though. Upon the Reptilians, though...he seems to like to put them all into one great big pile marked "evil". Now, I can't say whether what he says they're doing is true or not, but I do know not all Reptilians are evil. There are good Reptilians as well as bad. I think what we may be dealing with is not about certain aliens races as much as it is certain groups of them (you know, like....members of the KKK are all white, but not all white people are members of the KKK).

      Anyway, that's my 2 cents.

      I've been studying this info lately after a friend on fb was slagging off David Icke, who I'd not heard of before then... well, I like the things he says for the most part but I'm still unconvinced about the Reptilians and I haven't read anything terribly convincing here either. Still, my mind remains open.

      Second time stopping byt here. Really interesting article. I wonder why the new version of V that was on TV a year or two ago was cancelled? Were they getting too close to the truth???? LOL

      I remember I first heard about the reptillian conspiracy listening to an episode of the Art Bell Show years ago. The guy they were interviewing had some interesting points just like your lens.

      Very interesting lens, but you are slightly wrong on the Doctor Who: the Silurians were the land based reptilians, the Sea Devils their marine cousins who were invented a little later on. Blessing this lens.

      Agree with Phillyfreeze69... I think we need to be more concerned with the uneducated and inconsiderate exotic snake owners who tire of them and release them into habitats where they shouldn't be.

      Very interesting, I have heard of David Icke's books but have never read one. There is much talk of the Annunaki (reptiles) controlling does make you wonder.

      Very interesting lens that has made me recall the problems that Florida has with pythons that have been released by there owners into the Everglades and other parts of central and south Florida.

      Wild Life officials are concern because the numbers threatens the ecological balance of the reserve and city dweller have had their pets become prey for these orhaned constrictors. In a very real sense...Reptilans are taking over!
