Who are the lizard people? Are they real? And are lizard people in charge of the world? Reptilian conspiracy theories are more popular than you might think, with some surveys reporting that at least 12 million Americans believe their country is run by alien, reptilian overlords. The first lizard people theory seems to originate in science-fiction literature and have grown beyond made-up stories into a complex belief system with various theories. Some speculate that there are reptilians in government, politics, and in high-ranking business positions. Other lizard people conspiracies involve alien beings, hybrid humans, mysterious planets, and claims that essentially all world leaders and the wealthiest families are part of the reptile tribe.
But what exactly are the intentions of the lizard people, if they even exist? According to reptilian theorists, this elite alien species seeks world domination and power over every person on the planet. They are all about control, using their influence to vastly lower the quality of life for most people on the planet. This way, people have no energy, time, or motivation to notice or expose even the existence of the reptilians, let alone try to remove them from power. Check out the crazy lizard people theories below that may sound ridiculous at first, but will keep gnawing at the back of your mind as possibly true.
The First Reptilian Theory Has Literary Origins
Reptilian theorist Michael Barkun has long argued that the theory of world leaders as reptiles has its roots in literature. Specifically, he names author Robert E. Howard, who is best known for his Conan the Barbarian books. Some of Howard's earlier stories include "serpent men," particularly in his story titled "The Shadow Kingdom," which was published in 1929. The story is based around philosophical theories about lost worlds, such as Atlantis.
Howard's works inspired several theories of a shape-shifting lizard race that had "infiltrated high policymaking circles through their powers of mind control." Within fifty years of his depression-induced suicide, his ideas had spread and created underground cells and cults proclaiming that reptilian people really existed.
David Icke Popularized The Lizard People Theory And Believes That They Created The Human Race
Once a British game show host, David Icke revealed his reptilian theories for the first time during a BBC interview in 1991. To the shock of the world, he made some rather outrageous claims, arguing that the world's richest, most powerful families and political leaders are really reptilian aliens from another planet. He brought to the spotlight an unnerving conspiracy theory that lizard people ruled the world. Most people dismissed him as insane, but to conspiracy enthusiasts, he became a revered leader. Icke popularized this notion that lizard people really existed.
Icke says the whole "reptilians on earth" thing began with a mysterious group of aliens known as the Annunaki. They came to earth in its earlier days and decided to mix things up a bit. They hailed from the planet Niburu, also known in the reptilian theorist community as "Planet X," searching for gold. On earth, they found plenty of gold, but needed slaves to mine it for them. So, the Annunaki took some of their DNA to create a lesser species to do their work: humans.
The Annunaki then chose to stay on earth, to supervise and rule over the new humans. Icke and others cite evidence in the art and literature of the Sumerian culture to back up the story. According to Icke, Reptilians seek to tear down western culture, participate in pedophilia rings, wage wars for oil, and generally continue to make the world a wretched place in which to live. When they aren't doing those things, they are busy shape-shifting so that humanity will remain ignorant of their actual identity.
Some Believe Mark Zuckerberg Is A Reptilian
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is a powerful celebrity who has been accused of hiding his true reptilian nature. In 2016, as part of Facebook's first Town Hall Q&A streaming session, a Facebook member posed the question to Zuckerberg: “Mark, are the allegations true that you’re secretly a lizard?”
Zuckerberg responded, “I’m gonna have to go with ‘no’ on that," adding, "I am not a lizard." He then stopped to run his tongue across his lips. He went on to state that the question was "silly," and moved on to other topics.
The unknown questioner did not provide details as to why he thought Zuckerberg might be a reptilian. However, it stands to reason that because the FB mogul is among the more powerful business leaders in the world, some consider him a shoo-in for lizard overlordship. Additionally, Zuckerberg has been rumored to be considering a US presidential run as of 2017, which would place him at the top of both business and politics - a great place to be, if you really were a shape-shifting lizard alien who wanted to control humanity...
Alien Abduction Is Tied To The Lizard People
The reptilian overlords are involved in just about everything on the planet. They are even blamed for reports of alien abduction. Since some of these purported abductions are of a sexual nature, conspiracy theorists posit that the lizard people may once again be breeding with humans. More support for the argument that reptilians are abducting humans is found in the testimonies of abductees, some of whom report that their abductors were amphibian-like beings. Not exactly reptile, but close enough for reptilian theorists.
A British woman named Samantha McDonald claimed that she has been repeatedly abducted by "the reptilians" since the 1990s. She stated:
"I've asked them what they want with me and they have said they had come to take me and my family. What they were after was my energy and soul essence. I don't know why they keep coming back to me. I think it is to do with my energies as I'm into healing and meditation."
McDonald claims she has no memory or recollection of what happened during the time she was abducted. "You just feel like you have been somewhere, but you don't actually remember it."
