This theory is going to sound primitive, and maybe stupid, but my brain allows me to have these thoughts, so I must get them out.

I have always feared spiders, since earliest I can remember. They always seem to be sneaking up on me, watching me from the wall, or living in the closet, under the couch, under my bed. I am always getting bit by them, and getting a rash, and a bump.
I have learned to live with them, even though I know they are in my house. But I kill them whenever I see them. Always.

Snakes on the other hand, do not cause me any fear, I find them intriguing, and when I see a yard snake I will usually grab him by his neck, and hold him up, then throw him over the fence. And I don't usually kill them, even when they spray their smell on me. Unless my wife sees it, because she is terrified of snakes. Like really crazy terrified, so I will kill it for her, so she knows it won't be back in the yard. But if she doesn't know about it, I will just huck it over the fence still alive. I don't understand why exactly.

Now more to the theory...

Ever since I have been convinced of the existance of Aliens (2 years maybe), I have tried to imagine meeting one face to face, at the most scariest times of night. Usually while I'm getting ready for bed, or laying in bed at night alone. I don't know why I do this, I guess I am testing myself mentally.
And sometimes, I can simulate the feeling I would have if an Alien in the room with me, or right in front of me in the dark. And it is a scary real feeling.
The wierd thing is...
I know if I meet a Grey face to face I would be beyond terrified, and I realized the feeling I got was exactly the same type of feeling I get with Spiders, only more intense, like I am meeting a giant intelligent upright spider.
But if I am imagining a Reptilian alien, the feeling of terror is not there. It is still an alien feeling, but not scary, more intriguing, like the feeling I get from snakes.

Here's whats weirder.
I have O- blood which is supposed to be pure blood.
And my sister-in-law (wifes sister) has O- blood and she is not afraid of snakes either. And she is afraid of spiders like me.

My wife has B+ and is terrified of snakes, but not spiders.

Then when I hear the theories of reptilians and "purebloods" for a ruling class, I start wondering, is there some connection to O- blood and reptilians?

Maybe some people could post their blood type and what they are afraid of, snakes or spiders.
Usually people are afraid of one or the other. But usually not both.

Okay, this is going to sound very odd, but I've had a very similar thought.

Blood type: O
Fear: Spiders (when I see them I freeze up!!!!)

When I see snakes, I like them...I kinda feel the same as you I guess. But I still don't see why there would be a connection...only that there may infact be one!

You're both off your rockers.

I have A+ and I'm scared of both.

I doubt very much that there is any relation to Reptilians or Greys based on blood type. However, this is just my personal opinion. However, I doubt very much that I am alone.

Here is an explanation of the origin of blood types. It appears the type O is a mutation rather than "pure" as you were hoping.

"Type O is the result of a simple point mutation that greatly reduced or destroyed the ability of Type A transferase to attach N-acetylgalactosamine to H substance. Note that this is an example of loss of information, so is irrelevant to particles-to-people evolution. This ineffective Type A transferase is called circulating protein. The ineffectiveness of type O’s circulating protein depends on the point in the DNA where the mutation occurred, because some type Os attach more N-acetylgalactosamine to H than others. This sometimes causes discrepancies among blood banks. The mutations probably happened early in human history, since O is the most common blood group. Unattached H substance itself is an antigen which results in the rare blood type Bombay or Oh."

Interesting theory and nice anecdotal evidence, but highly unlikely.

I always figured fear of spiders and snakes was inherited. I've seen on nature shows monkeys going crazy when they seen a snake.
Along with that I always figured baby's dreamed of falling, snakes, and spiders so they knew to be afraid of them.

But young monkies are also curious like no other creature, and will happily taunt the snake to investigate what it is.
It is experience that teach them it is dangerous... And of course parents.

Personally I'm not afraid of neither snake nor spider... Well maybe those Australian bastard variants.

Yes, I'm definetly afraid of Australians... What kind of alien would that relate to?

Doesn't hold up. It's a cultural thing as well as individual training.

For the record, I'm not afraid of spiders, snakes, or much of anything else.

lol my opinion is that certain people enviroment when growing up determins their fears, worries... etc. for example if your growing up around a parent who is afraid of spiders then you would (as children do) learn off your parents in a way.

Personally i'm not afraid of any living animal on this planet. i have learned to live along side all animals as i (stupidly) think that if i dont harm them, they wont harm me.

I'm not at all trying to say that this is fact, I just think that everyone should consider the possibility here...Just what I think though

I like spiders and snakes. My grandmother is terrified by spiders I almost gave her a hart attack when I was small with a fake spider. Its funny my mother-in-law fears worms so bad she has nightmares about them.Yet my wife has no fear of them what so ever. Funny, now I'm really interested where fears like these comes from.

I am A/B+ and I don't fear either, but I am wary around them, I usually don't kill spiders since they catch flies and mosquitoes, but I always fear of being bit though even though they are not severely poisonous...

I don't fear snakes but I haven't ran into many of them at all...

I fear Greys like nothing else, but I have little fear for reptillians...

I am very phobic for Jellyfish though and sometimes other Invertibretes like Worms and Snails but not nearly as bad...

Well spiders and snakes to really worry me all that much.
We do have some poisonous spiders over here so I guess you have
to be wary.
Snakes, I just keep out of their way.
As far as the blood time thing, I don't really buy it all that much, not to
say that it isn't true or anything, I could be wrong.

Interesting thought though.

O -

I have a bad fear of being bitten by spiders, not so much a fear of the crawly little devils themselves. When I was young I had a scary run-in with some Black Widows. Didn't get bit, but I have been very fearful of them since.
I have been bit by other types of spiders before, one in NC made a golfball sized knot in my forearm for about a week. Last year I had a major crisis with Wolf spiders. It got cooler outside and they found their way into the house. I would get home from work and find 3 - 4 crawling around and hiding under things. I used long tweesers to pick them up and then quickly stick them in a cup of clear silicone oil, where they would not attempt to crawl back out. I still look around for them from time to time but haven't seen one in a while.

Snakes, not a problem. Played with them all the time as a kid.

Every mammal (including humans) fear of reptiles. Reptiles evolved through hundreds of millions of years, and very few mammals had the skill to catch and eat one near their size. Imagine, that lions, the king of wildlife fear from crocodiles, and always the crocodiles win any battle with them.

An armoured, well equipped reptile is a deadly weapon to any animal. As we try to imagine a reptilian humanoid, a deadly man-eater pops into our mind, with long sharp teeth, and other fatal weapons like deadly claw, and for most of it: a very detailed mind, that is/was always part of a flesh eater.

Kdx175, I have O- and i feel the same way! this is weird but ive even thought at night wat i would do if a grey would walk in my room! This is crazy! Isnt it weird how we ae alike! Ur theory might just be true!

.......Not to be rude or anything but I think your all just a tad bit paranoid.

I can't say that I care for snakes though I'm not "scared" of them, but I really do dislike spiders. Something about all the legs freaks me out, not to mention all the sci-fi flicks involving giant spiders eating human beings.

My solution is to step on them whenever possible. I'm bigger.

I have often wondered this, but I know they'd never catch my off guard since i'll be alarmed by their UFO, the sound and light emitting from it will be so obnoxious it would wake me up...and then i'll be either on my guard or hiding...

O+

I have no problem with small spiders, but if they are bigger than a couple of cm, I freak out, and end up killing it. Small spiders I just pick up and take outside.

Snakes are cool, I've got no problems with snakes

I also think about what I'd do if a rep or grey appeared in my room. I'd probably say Hello, why are you here.

I feel slightly uncomfortable around ostriches though, but I dont really get too freaked out. Ostriches look like this images.google.co.nz...
