If you’ve found your way to our site, you’ve probably spent some time scanning the night skies for UFOs. But what if looking skyward means you are missing what’s right in front of your nose? What if aliens are already living among us? Could your neighbor down the street by an alien undercover? And what about the leader of your country?
This is the theory of the reptilian race—also sometimes known as “lizard people,” “draconians,” “saurians,” or “reptoids.” Reptilians have actually cropped up in science fiction throughout the years time and again. They’ve been written about by Robert E. Howard, Clark Ashton Smith, and H.P. Lovecraft.
Sometimes, real-life mimics fiction, but more often, fiction mimics real life. Could it be that the inspiration for these stories runs deeper?
When Robert E. Howard wrote about “serpent men” in his story, “The Shadow Kingdom” in 1929, he was actually inspired by an idea presented by the co-founder of the Theosophical Society, Helena Blavatsky. Blavatsky’s great work was The Secret Doctrine, and in it she talked about “dragon men” who might once have inhabited a lost civilization called Lemuria.
Already, we are getting out of the realms of fiction and are now traversing a landscape where mysticism, archaeology, world history, and astronomy intersect. Delving deep into occult lore, you will find mentions of reptilian beings time and again. These beings crop up way too frequently to be a coincidence.
David Icke’s Theory of the Reptilian Elite
If you want to learn everything there is to know about the reptilians, David Icke is your go-to guy. If you have been around the block a few times in conspiracy circles, then you have doubtless heard his name.
David Icke differs from a lot of conspiracy theorists in that his life and career were pretty mainstream for a long time. Originally he was a professional footballer; later in the 80s he joined the BBC as a prominent sports presenter on Newsnight. He was so popular he eventually co-hosted Grandstand, which was BBC’s big sports program at the time.
In 1990, everything changed. One day as he was standing at a newsstand, Icke felt a draw toward a book written by a psychic healer from Brighton named Betty Shine. Eventually he visited her, and she told him she had a prediction for him—that he would become a great spiritual healer.
From that point on, it was down the rabbit hole. Icke experienced one strange event after another. Eventually he was invited onto a BBC chat show called Wogan. On the show, he went public with his unusual beliefs. The result was mass ridicule. From that moment on, Icke was branded a paranoid by the mainstream media—but conspiracy theorists and UFO hunters began listening with enthusiasm.
David Icke first began talking about the reptilians in The Biggest Secret in 1999. It is Icke’s belief that the Annunaki gods of Babylonian lore are in fact a race of reptilian aliens who hail from the constellation Draco. And not only did they walk the earth as gods in the days of yore, but they still walk among us today as shapeshifters.
Icke is not the first writer to suggest the theory of “ancient astronauts.” Others who have come before him include Erich von Däniken, who wrote Chariots of the Gods in 1968, and Zecharia Sitchin, who penned Divine Encounters in 1995.
It should be noted that reptilians are believed not only to come from another star system, but also another dimension. According to David Icke, the universe is actually a multiverse, and different dimensions occupy the same “space,” but are only accessible one (or in our case, three) at a time. If you could push through dimensions, you would find other objects and species occupying the same space you are in now.
So the reptilians come from the Draco constellation, but not our Draco constellation. Icke writes that they inhabit the Fourth Dimension, which is just one dimension over from our own world. Having crossed over, they can manipulate us to their own ends.
This connects back to occult lore again. If you know much about magick, you may be familiar with the practice of summoning entities, most of which will try to strike bargains. Icke believes that these entities are the reptilians, and this is yet another way in which they cross over into our world.
Why don’t we see reptilians running around all over the place? Good question. Icke posits several explanations:
- Reptilians are shapeshifters. They are already humanoids that walk on two legs and in some sense, look quite similar to us. It would not be a big leap or a hard adaptation for them to live amongst us as humans.
- Many of the reptilians may actually be living in caves deep underground.
- The world we see and the world as it is are two very different things. Even if you do not literally believe in a holographic universe, you have to admit that quite often we allow the wool to be pulled over our eyes by politicians, CEOs, and all manner of scammers and frauds. Is it really so hard to believe that a species that already lives like sheep may be bowing to extraterrestrial authorities? People miss what is right in front of them and vote against their own self interests everyday.
Are Annunaki the Same as Reptilians?
This is a good question, and there is some contention here. Some people say yes, the reptilians and the Annunaki are one and the same. Others point toward ancient carvings of Annunaki as evidence against this theory. Only some of the carvings show reptilian figures; many show figures that look far more human, or even birdlike.
This could mean that the reptilians are just one species of Annunaki. It might also mean however that the reptilians and Annunaki are indeed one and the same, and those figures that did not look reptilian were simply shapeshifters like we have today.
Why Are the Reptilians Here?
What would this super advanced race want with a lot of lowly humans? Well, what would we want with an inferior race that was easy to manipulate? Just as human beings love power, so do reptilians.
David Icke says that the reptilian race are here in order to mine for monatomic gold (with the aid of human slaves), which apparently can boost the power of their nervous systems. This is how they are able to shapeshift, cross dimensions, and so on. They also derive energy from human suffering, so it is well within their interests that we wage war, engage in animal cruelty, and so on.
This is why the reptilians have placed shapeshifters in positions of power. So long as the human race is enthralled to their interests, they suffer, and if they suffer, they serve the needs of the reptilians.
Even nonbelievers have to admit there is something intuitively familiar in this narrative. Whether you believe as Icke does that there literally are cold-blooded aliens or not, the cold-blooded actions of world leaders especially over the course of the 20th century is enough to make us wonder whether our leaders are human. We certainly do live in a culture of alienation.
List of Reptilian Celebrities
Looking for a list of reptilian shapeshifters? You’re not alone. Everyday, believers in the reptilian bloodline are trying to identify shapeshifters and hybrids in our midst.
Obviously, there is a ton of disagreement over who is a lizard and who isn’t, but here are some popular allegations:
- Barack Obama
- George W. Bush (and most of his advisors)
- Bill Clinton
- Lady Gaga
- Benedict Cumberbatch
- Angelina Jolie
- Numerous senators and world leaders
As you can see, the list is all over the place, including both left- and right-wing politicians and a range of movie stars and singers. A better question might be, “Who isn’t a reptilian?”
“Me!” you say.
… Right. Sure, we believe you 😉
How to Identify Reptilian Hybrids
Want to know how to spot reptilians? You need to look for both physical characteristics which “bleed through” the shapeshifting guise, and you need to look for personality traits of reptilians as well.
- If a person has narrow, slit-like eyes and facial features which appear suggestive of a lizard, they may be a shapeshifter.
- Reptilians on the whole are believed to be quite tall, so this may also be a giveaway.
- If you look around, you’ll find videos and pictures suggesting that sometimes reptilians lose control of aspects of their shapeshifting abilities, resulting in strange textures on their skin or changes in their eyes.
- Reptilians are cunning expert manipulators.
- Power-hungry individuals may be reptilians.
- Reptilians are energy vampires. They are draining to be around.
- Narcissism and related traits like gaslighting could indicate you are dealing with a reptilian.
- Destructive sadism may also be a sign of a reptilian; remember, they feed on suffering.
Reptilians in the Mainstream
When a lot of people read about reptilians and David Icke’s theories for the first time, it all seems pretty “far out there.” But if you think about it, there are a lot of places where reptilians crop up in mainstream media, especially in fictional universes. Think about Lord Voldemort, the snake-like fascistic evil wizard of Harry Potter lore. Another fun example is the Silurians from Doctor Who. The Silurians aren’t evil and they aren’t even aliens, but they are ancient reptilian humanoids living in secret caves deep underground.
Whether you believe in the reptilians or not, the mythology of lizard people among us weaves throughout human history and is very much a part of our collective identity. It dates back to the Annunaki and continues to interlace through our daily lives in modern stories such as Doctor Who. It resonates with our experiences of trauma as a species. It is at least in part a reaction to war, to greed, to poverty, to slavery and all forms of tyranny.
Even though the reptilian race is a fearful theory, it is also one of hope—hope that the universe is bigger than just ourselves, and that if we can liberate ourselves from our oppressors, we might just become a kinder, more compassionate species.
