David Icke’s Famous Reptilians Conspiracy: Do They Walk Among Us?
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 humans, 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 that 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 a 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. 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 last 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 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.
Were they 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 anxiety is 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 otherwise.
Was The 1977 Southern Television Broadcast Interruption A Hoax?
Government agencies that regulate television and radio signals are pretty astute when it comes to maintaining the security of the airwaves. But just after 5 p.m. on Nov. 26, 1977, unsuspecting viewers in England who tuned into the nightly news experienced a Southern Television broadcast interruption by a ‘voice from space.’ To this day, no one knows for certain who was behind the interruption.
Southern Television Broadcast Interruption a Hoax?
On this particular Saturday evening, unbeknownst to those working at an independent television station in Southern England, thousands of viewers were subjected to a six-minute message from an entity referring to itself as Vrillon of the Ashtar Galactic Command.
During the broadcast, Vrillon warned his unassuming audience of the dangers humans were getting themselves into by using weapons of mass destruction. Vrillon also confirmed the UFO phenomenon and his race’s presence “seen as lights in the skies.” Vrillon warned humanity to be wary of false prophets and the evils of money, before imploring his audience to live in harmony and put down its weapons.
The transmission returned to the evening’s normally scheduled programming of Looney Tunes before viewers were assured by news broadcaster, Andrew Gardner, that everything was alright and that it was simply a hoax. But some began to panic, frantically phoning the station under the assumption that the apocalypse was upon them, despite Ashtar Command’s seemingly peaceful dispatch.
News stations distorted the story, reporting different names and versions of Vrillon’s message. This added to the confusion creating a War of the Worlds-type anxiety among those who couldn’t fathom the possibility of a hoax. Adding to the conspiracy is the fact that the culprit of the transmission has still never been discovered.
Many believed the broadcast to be the doing of the Raëlian community, the UFO church founded just four years earlier by Claude Vorilhon, whose name sounds and looks uncannily similar to the Ashtar Commander, Vrillon. Was the name Vrillon just a misconstrued pronunciation of Vorilhon?
The Southern Television broadcast is often compared to the Max Headroom Chicago broadcast interruption of 1987 or the Captain Midnight HBO interruption a year earlier. Though the culprit in the latter case turned out to be a disgruntled employee.
The particular broadcasting system that was being used by the Southern Television station was unusual in that it bounced one signal to another transmitter on the Isle of Wight, rather than using a direct landline like most television transmitters at the time. This allowed the signal to be interfered with, though it would take someone well-versed in the technology to intercept and interrupt it.
What is strange about the Ashtar Command broadcast is that not everyone heard the name “Vrillon” that night. Some say they heard the name “Asteron,” some heard “Gillon,” and others heard “Bramaha.” Adding to the intrigue is the fact that the only audio or video evidence of the message is a reenactment.
