My theory, in a nutshell:
Around 10000-12000 years ago there was a civilization based around the Black Sea, the remnants of which are slowly being unearthed in recent decades.
A tribe of these people were more technological than other tribes of hunter-gatherers and had developed advanced techniques of metal work. They wore
armour made up of bronze scales which would tarnish and turn green giving them the appearance of lizard men or fish men. Their descendants, the
Scythians, were even described as such by Josephus. Also, the Phrygian Cap comes from them.
Icke et al., took these and other descriptions literally and started the whole reptilians are aliens propaganda in order to sell books.
For more detail I direct you to my thread on the topic:
