Well, seeing as we can all agree on how there is no definitive evidence supporting the idea of the Reptilian race, perhaps it would be better for us
to attempt to locate the source of the speculation.
Personally, the first time i ever encountered an example of a race of Reptiles in the eyes of western media was in watching a show called V by Kenneth
Johnson - the series itself went on to propogate a series of novels and comic books, and even a video game.
All of which revolving around a race of aliens visiting earth in the guise of human skin, when in reality they were reptiles.
It was explained that "On Earth, the dinosaurs were destroyed by a massive cataclysmic event, but who is to say that on other planets, where
dinosaur-like creatures existed, that cataclysmic event did not occur?".
Anyway, apparently the purpose of his creation was to highlight the means in which the Nazis subverted Germany in the 20th century, with Characters
providing supporting roles for this - for example; A Boy just out of high school joins a youth movement designed to welcome the aliens to earth, but
it later becomes apparent that the youth movement is nothing more than a front for rounding up scientists, who may become aware of "The Visitor's"
(as referred to in the series) true identities.
The young boy's grandfather (i think, i did see it a few years ago) was a jew who survived the holocaust, but is promptly sold out by his brainwashed
grandson's ambition to unite the two species (which is what the kid thinks is happening).
Personally on the concept of Reptiles, I think a lot of the more paranoid speculation is just feed-back from years of science fiction being forced
down our throats, inevitably becoming distorted by individuals seeking a cause to support.
However, i'm not about to just leave it at that - my original premise was to find out where people are getting the ideas of reptilian aliens
from, thereby allowing us to recognise the true source of the speculation.
If there is no evidence, then we must rely on where these ideas are coming from, as that is the source of the belief.
