Well, I've read a couple of Icke's books.
I have to say I am not a fan of his theory, though kudos to him for making a go of it. He's done well out of it and I think his belief in it is
fairly sincere. Either that, or conspiracy theorism pays better than I thought and he has no shame (in which case, someone sign me up. No,
seriously, I'll sell out now).
I don't find his theory convincing. I mean, that's what it comes down to. Some of the science and scholarship is rather shakey, especially
anything involving Setchin. I find it very hard to believe such a world encompassing conspiracy could exist, as well. How everything of importance,
no matter how long ago, or how recent, ties into it. It suggests he's stuck on his theory as being The One True Theory and from now on will
interpret everything according to those beliefs.
In my opinion, a good CTer should be skeptical, especially of their own theories. If he can get evidence of his theory, of shapeshifting reptilians,
then fantastic. I'll publically renounce my position and defer to aspects of his theory. But when his evidence is circumstansial, based around
uncorroborated eye witness testimony and ancient myths, it kind of detracts from his credibility.
