Reptilian humanoid

Encyclopedia: Reptilian humanoid

Reptilian humanoids are a recurring theme in mythology, fiction, and especially science fiction, fringe theories, and conspiracy theories. They are described as individuals or races of intelligent or otherwise highly developed reptilian-like beings. They are also often called reptoids, reptiloids or dinosauroids. They also appear in a few fringe New Age and neofascist ideas.

No theory that such creatures actually exist or have ever existed has been generally accepted by mainstream, conventional science, and they are usually relegated to fringe science or pseudoscience. Despite this, there are various theories that have been offered on their nature, where they came from, what their intentions are, and so on.

Ancient references to reptiles and serpents

Several ancient peoples all over the world have described reptilian beings. There are historical accounts about reptiloids devouring human children, and also tales of Serpents of Wisdom enlightening Humankind (such as the story of Gukumatz). Cecrops, first King of Athens was said to have been half man, half snake.

In India, extensive histories exist regarding the Naga, a Reptilian race said to live underground and interact with the kings and others on the surface. These beings were said to have once lived on a continent in the Pacific Ocean which sank beneath the waves. This is a recurring story throughout the world. Indian histories also refer to a Reptilian race called the "Sarpa" who founded civilisation, creating the cannibalistic Dravidians, being the source of the Hindu caste system (based upon a Draconian caste hierarchy, apparently), and demanded human sacrifice. A Nordic race was said to have created the Aryans, and when the two peoples combined, they formed the beginnings of Indian civilisation. Ancient Sanscrit texts also refer to spacecraft and aircraft called Vimana. Nuclear debris has been found in regions said to be destroyed by 'the gods' in Kashmir and other locations throughout the Indian peninsula.

The Hopi refer to a race of Reptilians called the Sheti, or Snake-Brothers, who live underground. The Cherokee and other American Indian peoples also refer to Reptilian races, as well as their origins in Atlantis The Chinese, Japanese and Europeans extensively speak throughout their history of beings such as Dragons (both physical and non-physical forms thereof), Dracul (devil-dragon humanoids), Vampires, Kappa, and others. The first Emperor of China, Huang-Ti, was said to be part Dragon, and was said to be born looking like a Reptilian. It was also said that his mother was impregnated by a beam of light emanating from the star Alpha Draconis, which Stewart Swerdlow and others claim is the home star system of the Draco Reptilian species.

The Mayans speak of a Reptilian species, referred to often as "Iguana-Men", who descended from the sky to take control of their civilisation, teaching them the art of pyramid building as well as demanding human sacrifice.

Throughout the world, in apparently unconnected societies, the belief pervades that a Reptilian race lives beneath the Earth and interacts with the surface. In most cases another race, tall and "Nordic" in appearance, is described. These were the "Elves" of European lore. The Reptilians were often described as having a caste hierarchy, in which the highest caste was winged. This correlates with information from current abductees, contactees and former government employees who have disclosed information regarding alien interaction with Earth-governments.

In Africa, the Zulu shamans bear extensive esoteric knowledge of a race of reptilians who they say control the Earth--called the Chitahuri. They also have accounts of a Reptilian race who created Blacks and used them to work their gold mines, extremely similar to the accounts described in the Sumerian tablets.

In Sumeria ten thousand tablets have been found and translated which refer to an alien race which created a race of humans to work as slaves in their mines in Africa. This race is called the "Anunnaki", or the "Abbennakki", and it specifically states that the "Black-headed" people of Sumeria were created by these beings. The royalty was said to be a combination between "Dragons" and humans.

In China and Japan underground bases where the Dragon Kings live are referred to, as well as the lineage of humans from a race of 'Dragons'. (there are also many other reptilian races referred to, such as the Kappa).

In Australia the aborigines speak of a reptilian race which lives underneath the Earth and governs over men. The Aboriginal chiefs have spoken of going into the Earth where these beings resided. There they claim there is extensive technology. The Aborigines say that they are descended from a race of dragon-humans that once lived on an enormous continent that spanned the entire Pacific ocean, and that most of it sank beneath the waves in ancient times, but that Australia is a remnant of it, and this is why there are so many reptilian animals there.

In Pythagoras' life there may have been events related to serpents, particularly winged and speaking serpents, as well as a massive beast called Python, a giant serpent for which he may have been named. Timothy Leary, Robert Anton Wilson and Philip K. Dick all have called themselves Pythagoreans. However, Wilson is known for stating various forms of conspiracy theory (he is also a high-level initiate of Aleister Crowley's Ordo Templi Orientis), Dick's possible mental illness is covered in more detail below, and Leary is widely known to have consumed copious amounts of hallucinogens.

In the Middle-East, Reptilian beings ranging from certain Jinn to Dragons and Serpent-Men, have been spoken of since ancient times. In the Bible, the Nephilim are alluded to as being Reptilian, and in the related Book of Jasher, a serpent race is described. King Og of Bashan, a reputed Repha (giant) is called a "Serpent", and Bashan itself means "Serpent" in Ancient Hebrew. This could refer to the Sumerian-influenced worship of serpents and dragon-like creatures which pervaded the Canaanite people before the Israelites entered that region. The Israelites recorded that the former inhabitants of Canaan were "Serpents", "Repha'im", "Nephilim" and "Anakim".

Procopius of Caesaria, arguably the most important historical source on the Justinian period in Byzantine history, recounted in his Secret History that Emperor Justinian and his wife, Theodora, were "Dracul" (a word meaning both Dragon and Devil), and that several people had reportedly seen them either shapeshift into demonic-like beings, or associating with non-human beings, particularly one referred to as "The King of the Devils", a being most often portrayed as reptilian, with horns and wings.

Many ancient peoples worshipped a serpent-Goddess called El or Hel, which was considered the God-Goddess of the Underworld, the Moon, and Venus. These three locations (underground, the Moon, and Venus) are all described by abductees, former covert government employees, and the like, as being major bases for a reptilian species from the Draco star system who have been involved with this planet for at least two million years.

Modern claims

Erich von Daniken theorises that extraterrestrials have influenced human history for millennia, and that they may have influenced human evolution.

Philip K. Dick, a science fiction writer, wrote about contact with three-eyed amphibious beings from Sirius and their connection to the Soviets and the Illuminati. This was described in his book, VALIS. PKD claimed to have connected these creatures to the Nommo, a mythological belief held by the Dogon tribe of Mali. It is a subject of some debate as to whether or not PKD was suffering from temporal lobe epilepsy. His wife allegedly claimed that he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder at one point in his life. It is unknown whether his reptilian beliefs were due to a brain disorder, the ingestion of pain killers, his fondness for methamphetamine and entheogens, or a combination of all three.

Christine Fitzgerald, a confidante of Diana, Princess of Wales, claims that Diana told her that the Royal Family had a connection to Reptilian aliens, and that they could shapeshift.

Sir Laurence Gardner, a Jacobite Genealogist, Historian, Knight, and holder of many other titles (which some are sceptical of the validity of), claims that a "Dragon Bloodline", a "Graal", was created in ancient Sumeria when reptilian aliens called "Anunnakki" descended upon the region and created a royal bloodline through genetic engineering.

David Icke claims that people see reptilian humanoids or dinosauroids, and that reptilian species are the force behind a worldwide conspiracy directed at the manipulation and control of humanity. According to Icke, hypothetical dinosauroids resemble one type of reptilian entity that people see during alleged encounters. Icke theorises that the reptilians evolved on this planet from dinosaurs or other reptile-like ancestors, and were the original tool-making race to evolve on Earth. Like most conspiracy theories, falsification of Icke's hypotheses is nearly impossible, but Icke continues to sell books and give speaking engagements based on concepts from the New Age and neofascism.

Timothy Leary claimed to have contact with three-eyed beings from Sirius.

Credo Mutwa, a Zulu shaman, claims that the Zulu people have known of a reptilian species called the Chitauli for centuries. He is the official historian of the Zulu people. He mentions amphibious beings from Sirius in his book, Song of the Stars.

Cathy O'Brien, a victim of CIA MKULTRA mind-control, claims to have seen George Bush shapeshift into a Reptilian being. She rationalised this as potentially being a holographic illusion.

Paul Shockley, a self-professed psychic, also speaks of malevolent reptilian beings. However, he explains that he does not believe that all reptilians are malevolent, and that there are benevolent members of this species as well.

Zecharia Sitchin, an archaeologist and linguist specialising in the Sumerian and Hebrew languages, claims that an ancient race of extraterrestrials, the Anunnaki, genetically engineered the original humans, and that they probably still exist in some form or another, with some degree of influence over humankind. These beings are speculated by Sitchin to be either reptilian, quasi-reptilian, or amphibious, from ancient description.

Stewart Swerdlow, a gifted mentalist, claims to possess extensive knowledge of alien intervention in Earth-human society, and describes in detail the activities of a Reptilian race called the Draco, originating in the Draco star system. He also mentions a more benevolent Reptilian race called the Abbennakki, which, he says, created the Black race in Africa. He claims that this is supported by ancient Sumerian tablets, as well as the histories of the indigenous peoples of Africa, such as the Zulu, as well as physical evidence such as ancient mines which have been discovered by the Anglo-American company, dating to 60,000 years B.C.

Prince Nicholas de Vere claims to be descended from an "unbroken Dragon-Bloodline" originating in Ancient Sumeria when an interdimensional Reptilian race created the first blueblood humans, the "Aryans" as he calls them.

Robert Anton Wilson writes about the Illuminati in the Illuminatus trilogy and other books. The book,Cosmic Trigger: The Final Secret of the Illuminati describes his drug-induced experiences with three-eyed beings from Sirius.

Joking References to Reptilians

On September 12, 2003, during the provincial election campaign in Ontario, Canada, a press release disseminated by the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party contained a line at the end that referred to rival Ontario Liberal Party leader Dalton McGuinty as an evil reptilian kitten-eater from another planet. The release was not intended seriously, but did no good for the Conservative party campaign.
Peculiar Mentions of Reptilians

An article appeared in the Chicago Tribune, March 1, 1995, regarding an event in which George Bushnell, head of the American Bar Association, called the Republicans "Reptilian Bastards". Quote from the article: "The atmosphere in the litigation debate is getting as poisonous as the atmosphere in, well, litigation itself. Eighty-two House members have now called on George Bushnell, Jr., president of the 370,000-lawyer American Bar Association, to resign after he described the Republican leadership of Congress as "those reptilian bastards."

Conspiracy theories

There are many conspiracy theories centered around, or at least involving, extraterrestrials of reptilian lineage. Many of these posit that the so-called Greys (fictional creatures from another planet in the 1977 film Close Encounters of the Third Kind, since adopted as the archetypal extraterrestrial) are in fact reptiles, and should be categorized as "Reptoids".

David Icke claims, based on his exploration of genealogical connections to European royalty, that many presidents of the United States have been reptilian humanoids. In his view, United States foreign policy after September 11 is the product of a reptilian conspiracy to enslave humanity, with George W. Bush as its key player. (See also Bush family conspiracy theory.) Some conspiracy theorists claim to have worked out a "dichotomy of axes" involved in hypothetical interplanetary and intergalactic conflict, and place the reptilians in an evil "Draconian" "axis", while humans are one of the species that belongs in an opposing "Evadamic" "axis". Several other entities and parties have been placed into this conspiracy theory, with some players who switch allegiances between Draconian and Evadamic.

The Nazi-friendly, subterranean flying saucer-riding super race depicted in Vril: The Power of the Coming Race is sometimes associated with accounts of reptilian humanoids.

None of these "theories" have ever been validated by any scientifically credible research.
Reptilian humanoids in fiction

The Conan the Barbarian and King Kull stories by Robert E. Howard pitted their heroes on occasion against a race of serpent people; this race's background was greatly expanded upon during the development of the Cthulhu Mythos, with a history stretching into the dinosaur era.

Ancient reptilian races known as the Silurians and Sea Devils appear in the Doctor Who series.

Presumably in reference to Credo Mutwa's Chitauli and many of the conspiracies mention above, Marvel Comics' The Ultimates written by Mark Millar and with art by Bryan Hitch features updated versions of the villainous Skrull race called Chitauri. They have shape-changing abilities and have orchestrated various conspiricaies to exterminate the human race, the most successful of these plots was the rise of the Nazi party in Germany.

In the television series V, the aliens are reptilian creatures who disguise themselves in a complete covering that resembles human skin.

Reptilian humanoids in games

In the fictional Dungeons & Dragons fantasy universe, there are several species of reptilian, amphibian and fish-like humanoids. These include lizard-men (or lizard-folk), the weak, dog-like kobolds, the serpentine yuan-ti, the aquatic sahuagin, locathah and kuo-toa, and various types of half-dragons such as the draconian.

Lizardmen are a prominent race in the Warhammer Fantasy Battle wargame.

In the popular video game X-COM, Reptoids, or "Snakemen", are the foot soldiers for an alliance of genetically altered extra-terrestrial beings bent on the subjugation and control of Earth.
