David Icke, o caça-reptilóides
Icke returned to the limelight in the late 1990s with a book, The Biggest Secret: The Book That Will Change the World. In it he claimed to have discovered that the world was being run by a New World Order, controlled by a race of reptilian humanoids or reptiloid aliens (he does not state what exactly they are, only giving possible explanations
"My own resaerch [sic] suggests that it is from another dimension, the lower fourth dimension, that the reptilian control and manipulation is primarily orchestrated. ...
Other people know this as the lower astral dimension, the legendary home of demons and malevolent antities [sic] in their black magic rituals.... ").
According to Icke, their 'hybrid reptilian-human DNA' allows some of these aliens to change from reptilian to human form if they can consume human blood, and he has even drawn parallels with the 1980s science fiction series V, in which Earth is taken over by reptiloid aliens disguised as humans.
Michael Barkun, in his 2003 study of conspiracy theory subculture, A Culture of Conspiracy: Apocalyptic Visions in Contemporary America, writes that Icke is "the most fluent of conspiracy authors, which gives his writings a clarity rarely found in the genre."
The group, known as the Babylonian Brotherhood, implicates practically every world leader from Britain's late Queen Mother to Bill Clinton as either a reptilian, or working for them (he suggests that they are slave-like victims of multiple personality disorder).
"The Rothschilds, Rockefellers, the British royal family, and the ruling political and economic families of the US and the rest of the world come from these SAME bloodlines.
It is not because of snobbery, it is to hold as best they can a genetic structure - the reptilian-mammalian DNA combination which allows them to "shape-shift".
You will also see references on the site to "shape-shifting", the phenomena in which witnesses have reported seeing people (most often those in positions of power), transform before their eyes, from a human form to a reptilian one and then back again.
Former US president, President George Herbert Walker Bush, incidentally, is mentioned more than any other person in my experience in relation to shape-shifting."
The evidence for this is often considered absurd by non-adherents; for instance, his apparent claim that the car-rental company Avis is a front for the Brotherhood because Avis spelled backwards is Siva, a member of the Hindu pantheon. However, his supporters tend to concentrate on the volume of other evidence he presents, such as the recurrence of the reptilian archetype in myths worldwide.
For example, the Ancient Sumerians worshipped apparently reptilian gods called the Anunnaki, and the Ancient Maya of Mexico claim that all their knowledge of the heavens came from their god of wisdom and astrology, Kukulcan, sometimes depicted in Maya art as a reptilian humanoid with a crest of feathers on his head (this god later became the Aztec god, the Plumed Serpent, Quetzalcoatl). The ancient Egyptians believed that the sun was swallowed by a snake in the evening and traveled through its bowels at night to return the next morning. Dragons played significant roles in both European and Asian culture. Judeo-Christian religion contains the concept of the 'serpent' introducing an innocent Adam and Eve to original sin and causing their fall from Paradise, and snake handling is part of some Christian sects' worship.
Icke links all of his data, both from mainstream sources, and from speculation, together into a set of grand conspiracy theories. The sheer volume of his writings, and the interconnectedness of his ideas, are enough to convince many of his supporters that "something must be going on". They regard skeptics as being either ill-informed or as stooges of the conspiracy.
He has since published a number of additional books following this theme at various levels of detail, the first being too large to be read by most casual readers. His latest work continues in this thread, an attempt to explain the September 11, 2001 attacks as being a part of this reptile-led conspiracy, with the reptiloid George W. Bush playing the key role.
