No, we are not speaking about lizards driving around in fancy cars – although that is not far off from what some individuals believe is happening. The concept was brought to reputation by former BBC sports author and self-proclaimed “son of God”, David Icke in his 1999 book The Biggest Secret: The Book That Will Change the World. In the book, Icke posits that society is controlled by humanoid reptiles. For the sake of simplicity, we’ll name them the Reptilians. Whereas it could sound like a wildly outlandish1 conspiracy theory, roughly 12 million Americans believe that it’s actually true and there’s a conspiracy against humans perpetrated by the Reptilians.
After all, it’s important to point out that there’s only anecdotal information (at best) to back up any of these claims. So whereas none of it may be true, it is still a fascinating and elaborate theory about how some individuals see the inner workings of the world.
There are two schools of thought on where the Reptilians came from. Some believe that they evolved here on Earth, left Earth after they mastered intergalactic travel1, and then returned millions of years later. Others believe their home planet is in the Draco constellations. Supposedly, they came to Earth thousands of years ago and shared the Earth with people. Then they either decided or were forced to go “undercover” and hid from our reality. They also started to interbreed with humans by altering our DNA, similar to the way that people alter computer code.
This altering of our DNA had a twofold effect. They altered our DNA so we don’t use our brain to its full capacity, putting a limit on our consciousness, and making us easier to control. As evidence, Icke points to the fact that we have reptile genes within our brain. In fact, the Reptilian brain is the oldest of the three parts that control the brain. The second is that people with reptile DNA in them can be possessed by Reptilians who live outside our realm of awareness in the lower fourth dimension. These human-reptile1 hybrids, considered demigods, were able to gain power in the ancient civilizations of Sumer, Babylon, and Mesopotamia. As humankind started to colonize the rest of the planet, the reptiles spread across the Earth and became the royal families throughout the world.
By having power in every single country, the Reptilians have created a global prison that people don’t even realize they’re in. The prison was created by drawing country lines, which leads to endless wars and conflicts. Another way they control humans is by distracting us with media, entertainment, and even politics. They’ve also made the population stupid and lazy by poisoning food, the air, and the water.
So just to sum it up, because it’s a lot of very unusual information to take in: essentially, the lizard people altered our brains to limit their ability. They installed most, if not all, world leaders throughout history. Those leaders, in turn, contributed to all major historical events. Finally, for thousands of years, they’ve been poisoning humans. And all of this was done to ensure that they control humankind. So right off the bat, the answer is yes, we’re taking a drive to crazy town right about now. Enjoy the ride!
9. The Reptilian Hierarchy
According to Icke, there’s a hierarchy when it comes to the Reptilians. Notably, there are two classes of Reptilian – full blood and crossbreeds. Full blood are aware that they are Reptilians and can change forms between their human exterior and their true Reptilian skin. Also, the full reptiles are not wearing an actual physical disguise; instead their human shell is created through vibrations that alter the human mind, so your brain just thinks it sees a human. It’s similar to how the aliens disguise themselves in John Carpenter’s cult classic They Live. This explains why Reptilians are 5-12 feet tall but wear a human size disguise. They don’t actually shrink in size; our brains just register them as normal human size, because changing physical size is considered impossible. On the other hand, hybrids, or crossbreds, are not aware that they are Reptilian and believe they are humans but are controlled from the lower fourth dimension to push forward the agenda, known as the New World Order.
Among those two different types, there are different races. At the top of the pecking order are the Dracos, who are winged albino reptiles. Below them is a race called the Reptoids, who do not have wings, and have brown and green skin. The Reptoids are soldiers and scientists and are responsible for secret government programs and bases, such as the Montauk Project, which was an alleged group of tests done by the United States army where they tried to developed fringe technologies like time travel.
8. How to Spot One
Some general characteristics of the Reptilians in disguise and people with Reptilian DNA is that they are usually Caucasian and have piercing eyes that are green, hazel, and sometimes blue, but they can also change color. They also have low blood pressure and unexplained scars.
Since they hide from humans, it may be impossible to see them, but one thing you should look for is how they act. Often Reptilians and crossbreeds lack empathy, don’t express love easily, are incredibly smart, and have a love for space and science.
But, if you are desperate to try and see one: supposedly, if you watch television in slow motion, you can get glimpses of the Reptilians’ true identity. Sometimes the image can be distorted and skin looks scaly or green. Teeth become distorted and their eyes look like those of reptiles. There are plenty of videos on YouTube of people who claimed they have footage of Reptilians shape shifting.
7. Suspected Reptilian
There are a number of famous people who are suspected of being Reptilian. This includes such notable families as the Rockefellers in the United States, the Rothschild family from Germany, and the British House of Windsor. It’s also believed that many of the Presidents of the United States are Reptilian, including the Bill Clinton (and Hillary Clinton, who is apparently higher than Bill in the Reptilian Hierarchy), Barack Obama, and both Presidents Bush. In fact, the Bushes are an integral part of the conspiracy because of how many famous people are related to them.
According to Ancestory.com, George W. Bush and Obama are 11th cousins and Dick Cheney is his ninth cousin once removed. Other blood relatives directly related to the Bushes include Abraham Lincoln, Marilyn Monroe, Pocahontas, Hugh Hefner, John Kerry, Vlad the Impaler, and Princess Diana. That means that, possibly, all of those people are actually Reptilian as well.
Not only have the Reptilians infiltrated banking, government, and the world’s royalty, but they are also some well-known and beloved entertainers like Bob Hope, Brad Pitt, and Angelina Jolie. Needless to say, with so many possible Reptilian people among us, it makes it hard to trust anyone. You could even be a Reptilian and not even know it.
Blood is very important to the Reptilians. For one thing, they apparently consume it. They also eat parts of human brains and apparently prefer children, because they aren’t as full of poison as adults. Besides just eating our blood, bloodlines are also an important feature in the Reptilian conspiracy. You can supposedly tell if someone is Reptilian by tracing their bloodlines. It’s believed that around 4800 BC the crossbreeds emerged from the mountains of Turkey, Iran, and Kurdistan and started the early civilizations of Sumer, Egypt, Babylon, and the Indus Valley.
This explains how humans became civilized and accomplished some amazing things: the crossbreeds kickstarted them. Thanks, lizard overlords! From these civilizations, humans began to migrate and the Reptilians went with them. So Icke claims that all the bloodlines of the supposed Reptilian people listed above can be traced back to this area.
Icke also says that there are markers in some people’s physical blood as well. He points out that from the area of the world where the hybrids originated, there are more people with an incredibly rare blood type called Rh and Rh negative. Other than just being rare, when a baby is born with Rh blood, their skin turns blue, and this is supposedly where the term “blue blood” comes from.
5. The Bible
As proof that the Reptilians do exist, David Icke points to a number of passages in the Bible. One of the most famous stories is the fall of man. In Genesis, Adam and Eve are cast out of the Garden of Eden because of Eve was tempted by a serpent. Icke argues that this represents a change in human and Reptilian relationships. According to Icke, Reptilians used to walk the Earth and humans were aware of their existence. But as we mentioned, at some point they went underground and hid from humans and started the crossbreeding process. That moment when they went undercover is called “the schism” and that is what the story of Adam and Eve represents.
Besides the story of Adam and Eve, another biblical passage that supposedly references the Reptilians is Genesis 6:1-4, which reads:
When human beings began to increase in number on the earth and daughters were born to them, the sons of God saw that the daughters of humans were beautiful, and they married any of them they chose. Then the Lord said, My Spirit will not contend with humans forever, for they are mortal; their days will be a hundred and twenty years. The Nephilim were on the earth in those days—and also afterward—when the sons of God went to the daughters of humans and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown.
Icke says this is again evidence of the interbreeding. Nephilim is an ambiguous term, but it is commonly believed to mean “Those Who Have Descended” or “The Fallen Ones,” leading to people believing that the Nephilim are fallen angels or greater beings. Icke believes that these were actually Reptilians, who interbred with the daughters of humans and then their offspring became the hybrid human-Reptilians.
Finally, in the Book of Revelations, Satan is described as a serpent and a dragon, and he is cast down to Earth with his angels. Icke believes that this is a Draco and his Reptoids. Of course, this theory only works if you believe in the Bible. But what’s interesting is that the Bible isn’t the only ancient source where there are stories of reptiles interacting with humans.
4. Snake Imagery Throughout the World
Other evidence that Icke points to is the fact that civilizations throughout the world have reptile gods or worshiped reptile beings. One notable example is a figurine that was found in the area that was Mesopotamia and is now modern day Iraq, and is from the time period just before civilization started called the Ubaid period (6500-3800 BC). It’s a statue of a humanoid snake creature holding a baby.
Besides this pre-civilization relic, there are stories of reptile gods and demigods found throughout ancient history. Just to name a few, Mesoamerica had a wing serpent god called Quetzalcoatl. Hindus had a god called Naga that was half human and half cobra. Apep was the Egyptian god of chaos and is depicted as a cobra. This doesn’t even include how many different cultures around the world have stories of great reptiles like dragons.
Icke says that these stories of reptile gods and dragons originated from when the Reptilians operated out in the open before the schism. He also points out that throughout many cultures, there are stories similar to Adam and Eve where reptile creatures are the gatekeepers to special places like the Garden of Eden or they give spiritual knowledge to humanity. Icke acknowledges that some of this may be metaphorical, but he believes that these stories are actually evidence of the schism.
3. Connection to the Greys?
If the Reptilian Elite, New World Order conspiracy theory wasn’t wild enough, the Reptilians may also possibly be connected to the alien race known as the Greys, because why not? According to a mysterious conspiracy writer named Jason Bishop III, the Greys are actually controlled by the Reptilians. In terms of the hierarchy of control, it goes winged Dracos, non-winged Reptoids, the Greys, and then us, the lowly humans, on the bottom.
There is even some speculation, based on eyewitness accounts that there are actual crossbreeds of the Greys and Reptilians. They look just like the Greys, except they have reptile-like skin. Theorists believe that the Reptilians have enslaved the Greys or they have formed an intergalactic alliance working together to keep humans down.
2. The Reptilians and The Illuminati
One of the most well-known “secret” societies is the Illuminati and according to some theorists, they are controlled by the Draco. This idea was put forward by a man named Stewart Swerdlow, who claims he was a survivor of the Montauk Project. In his book, Blue Blood, True Blood: Conflict & Creation, he claims that there are 13 “Royal Families” of the Illuminati. The leader of the Illuminati is called the Pindar, which is shortened from Pinnacle of the Draco and is a purebred Reptile.
According to Swerdlow, the Pindar is the head of the Rothschild family, who has been the Pindar for centuries. The 12 other families, all of them incredibly powerful, influential, and rich, have different areas of expertise, and they control global finances, military technology and development, mind-control, religion, and the media. All of the 13 ruling families are full-blooded Reptilians, but the class of individuals who support the 13 families, called the Committee of 300, are not. In fact, some of them do not even have any Reptilian DNA, though most do. The Committee of 300 supports the 13 families by controlling the organizations like the NSA, the CIA, Interpol, and the Mafia, just to name a few.
1. Their Goal
The biggest question surrounding the Reptilian conspiracy theory is: why would they do it? Again, there is much debate to this. One belief is that they need our gold to help stabilize the atmosphere on their own planet. Another theory is that they just have a need for power and control and they enjoy living life as rulers. A third, incredibly metaphysical explanation involves the Reptilians living in the lower fourth dimension. Essentially, one of the main things that the Reptilians try to do is cause human suffering and to ensure there is constant conflict. The reason they want that is because the Reptilians actually consume negative energy like jealousy, fear, and anger as a source of food.
Of course, without much proof that these giant, shape-shifting, interdimensional, humanoid reptiles that have mastered intergalactic travel even exist, it’s hard to know what their true master plan is.
