David Icke’s Famous Reptilians Conspiracy: Do They Walk Among Us?
By: Gaia Staff | Sept 11th, 2018
You’ve probably seen tabloid headlines claiming, “Justin Bieber Caught Momentarily Transforming into Reptilian Form,” or “Shapeshifting Secret Service Agent Proof of Illuminati Reptilian Bloodlines.” While these may seem like fringe conspiracies, a poll taken during the 2016 election showed that four percent or roughly 12 million Americans, believe in these famous reptilians. But if you really want to know more about the reptilian conspiracy theory, one need only ask David Icke.

Much of the theory’s popularity comes from Icke’s interpretations of Gnostic texts such as the Nag Hammadi, as well as biblical apocrypha like the Dead Sea Scrolls. He says he believes these texts contain evidence that certain higher vibrational beings of frequency, known as Archons, appear on Earth as human, masking their true reptilian form.
These “Archontic” forces are undoubtedly evil, intent on enslaving humanity for their own selfish reasons. Icke says these forces are like a computer virus which manifested itself in elite bloodlines throughout mankind’s history. Also known to use their most infamous arm of clandestine influence, the Illuminati, these famous Reptilian shapeshifters form the psychopathic ruling class that pulls the strings in all of the world’s financial and political power structures.
And it’s not hard to sympathize with Icke’s belief; the decisions made by politicians, bankers and the global elite are often selfish, detrimental to the environment, and subversive to the betterment of society at large – three signs of psychopathy. But are they really reptilian?
Of course, we all have a reptilian brain – that part of us responsible for behaviors, such as aggression, dominance, and territoriality – which was a nickname given to the basal ganglia by neuroscientist Paul McClean when he wanted to compare our instinctual actions to those of reptiles. But it seems like the Reptilians Icke describes are a little more conniving than McClean’s concept; it seems they’re capable of more cerebral thought.
There are two types of these famous reptilians: hybrids and full bloods. The hybrids are an alleged crossbreed between humans and full-blooded reptilians, who are too few in number to take over the planet – hence the reason they cloak their identity while manipulating world leaders and financiers behind the scenes.
There is also a hierarchy, according to Icke, of which the full-bloods or Dracos, sit atop, maintaining control of the hybrids who are unaware they are even reptilian. Most of the world’s most influential political figures are of the hybrid ilk, including modern presidents, prime ministers and bankers. Others believe hybrids exist as reptilian celebrities, but Icke typically sticks to institutions and political entities – especially those with nefarious histories like the CIA, Bilderberg Group, and the Trilateral Commission.
In one of his most renowned titles, The Biggest Secret, Icke meticulously charts the bloodlines of a family called the Merovingians – a central connection of French nobility that links ancient Egyptian pharaohs and Roman Emperors to the British royal family, U.S. Presidents, and nearly every other influential political figure of the past few centuries.

Reptilian References in Ancient Cultures
Icke says there is mention in the Nag Hammadi of not just Reptilians, but also the Greys, commonly reported as one of the less-than-friendly alien species humans encounter. These, too, are manifestations of the negative Archontic form, he says.
Icke also uses Zechariah Sitchin’s interpretations of the ancient Sumerian tablets, which detail the Anunnaki – a progenitor race of Reptilian aliens who came to Earth and interbred with humans, leading to the first advanced civilizations in Sumer, Egypt, Babylon, and the Indus Valley.
Icke also points to the Old Testament, in which the Nephilim, a.k.a. the “fallen ones” fit into his theory of a descendent race infiltrating humanity. Some translations interpret the Nephilim as giants or others as fallen angels, but in both cases, they interbred with humans. Icke says these are the Reptilians, and depictions of them can be seen throughout disparate religions and cultures in antiquity, worshipped as gods or demi-gods like the Nephilim.
In ancient Sumer there is a literal statue of a Reptilian goddess cradling its offspring. Ancient Egypt has Apep; the serpent deity that embodied chaos and opposed light. In Mesoamerican culture there was Quetzalcoatl or Kukulkán, the flying, feathered, reptile god, who created the cosmos. And Indian religions including Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism speak of the Naga, a human-snake hybrid demi-god that are potentially dangerous to humans. Could this have been the half-blooded reptilians Icke warns us of today?
Whether you ascribe to Icke’s rather fantastical theory, his sentiment and the foundation of his histrionics stem from a genuine concern for humanity and the oppression he sees from an elite class, the one percent. This is an anxiety shared by a lot of people in the world, particularly in this day and age. And for that, it’s difficult to completely dismiss Icke’s ideas, Reptilian aliens or not.
