So it leads us back to the start. Is there no source we can look at that will get us through? It's a vicious cycle, a catch 22 if you will. Can't trust what the Gov't tells us, the history books, etc. There is no paper trail to follow that is credible. It get to be like finding a corner in a round room. ARGH!
A scientific (or even merely logical) hypothesis is one which can be disproven. Basically, anytime a sceptic raises a question, the answer is either "you don't know jack about reality" or "you're too arrogant to see the obvious truth."

This reptoid stuff is a phantasy compiled by some psychologically needy people, probably teenagers.
1. All the "evidence" is taken from TV.
Pictures from TV? COME ON!! Appeals to "outer limits" and "star trek?" You're wasting my time with arguments like that. Why not use cartoons like the later Flintstones episodes? Is this what passes for photo evidence?
2. Claims about DNA
The fact is, most vertebrate DNA is pretty much identical. Most of the information is about building protein chains, after all--not hair color or blood type or anything. Give me a specific marker that you consider a reptoid chain, and then let's contact the human genome project, ok? Besides, if they can shape-shift, then the question of "reptoid" DNA is moot, right?
3. Claims about a "hollow/less dense earth."
You don't even need satelites to disprove this. You can estimate the mean density of rock/iron/nickel, and compare it with the mass of the moon, and then calculate the orbits of the earth and moon. I don't remember my numbers, but I do remember performing the calculations in my high school physics class. If there was a hollow earth/ then the mutual center of orbit would be much closer to the moon than it is. (It's actually below the earth's surface.) This means that the Earth has many times the mass of the moon, proving that earth isn't hollow, or even less dense than the theorized metal core and mantle of liquid rock.
4. Claims of reptoid control of humanity
Why do they want to control us? For food? For resources? What raw materials are being shipped off planet???? Can you give any numbers? Maybe they just control us because they are power-seeking. If so, they are doing an incredibly poor job. Give me a thousand shape-shifters and 100 years, and I will turn this planet into a plantation producing anything you want with a completely enslaved population, where the internet doesn't even exist.
5. Accusations of "arrogance" for anyone who questions the myth.
Isn't this what you're always accusing religious people of doing? It indicates to me that most of the proponents of reptoid theory are getting a type of "religious" satisfaction from it. They feel oppressed/undervalued, and reptoid mythology gives meaning to the world, and explains why the believers are not in power.
6. Indications that many believers in reptoid theory are teenagers
Most of the "pro-reptid" posters have atrocious spelling and grammar. They also generally have less than 3000 points.
Basically, this whole thread seems to be like the "Stargate SG-1 is REAL!" threads of a few months ago.

I am approaching this topic from a theoretical standpoint. Therefore, my intentions behind this post will be purely theoretical. I am interested in advancing the current discussion of a theory concerning possible alien intervention with humanity. I am not trying to convince anyone of anything.
Very explicitly, I am not interested in proving the theory; therefore, I will not respond to requests for "proof". In my humble opinion, "proof" of any theory is a scientific process involving measurement.
Null hypothesis: An extraterrestrial race referred to as "Reptilians" has never interacted with homo sapiens.
Alternative hypothesis: An extraterrestrial race referred to as "Reptilians" has interacted with homo sapiens.
I am interested in stimulating theory-based discussion related to either of the above two hypotheses.
I am looking forward to further theoretical discussion. Again though, I assert that there is no proof for anything at this point.

How do we know you're not a Reptilian--by the way you talk?
You've never seen ANY physical evidence to substantiate it? You refuse to believe the US Government reports, documents and testimony?
I looked in the Research Section of ATS, and it looks as if some of the Majestic12 documents are already here. Maybe MKULTRA, the ATS member, can direct you to the MKULTRA docs.
