Alright, somebody has to take the other side... Guess who.
For starters, David Icke, if you remove nothing but the Reptilian stuff, delivers a fantastic amount of fairly unique information of exceptional
quality. And does so with a sincerity that IMO is undeniable. A couple people mentioned that he promotes his books frequently; implying he is just a
greedy player. Well, he most certainly does promote his books often. The man has three kids, a wife, an ex-wife and travel expenses that I doubt are
insignificant. Do you expect him to live on random philanthropic donations? Aside from his occasional talks (which I'm sure turn a decent profit)
his books are his primary source of income. Give a guy a break. Were you so brave as to adopt an approach to life similar to his, I'd bet you'd be
mentioning your books quite frequently as well. Even if he was becoming fabulously wealthy, so what? I doubt many of us, given the opportunity,
would pass up a means to achieve a 6+ figure income. No one talks trash about Steven King when he (and his publisher and distributor) markets his
books mercilessly in every bookstore in the country. Enough of that.
Reptilians... yeah, it's a tough one to swallow. I'm choking on it right now in fact.
First off, lets consider the shape-shifting business. Now Icke's basis for supporting this idea comes from a series of eye-witnesses of this
phenomenon he encountered over approximately a two week period in the U.S. In that time he was approached by about 12 unrelated individuals, all
describing similar reptilian shape-shifting encounters. I'm gonna have to say, "My butt." The only reasonable explanation of this for me is that
his message up to that point was striking a bit too close to home for some people and these people were sent to Icke as disinformation. I think it
worked and has resulted in this discrediting topic.
As for the concept of Reptilians in general. After dropping the shape-shifting, it isn't quite so unbelievable. The notion of beings just outside
our perceptual frequency range, messing with humanity for sustenance and power I can deal with as possible (even if it is straight out of Star Trek:
TNG.) In fact I can lend the concept a drop of credibility from personal experience with individuals of royal descent having frequent, drastic
personality changes of the type described as characteristic of "reptilian possession" or whatever you wanna call it. Furthermore, if one doesn't
let their imagination of giant, biped lizards wearing crowns blur their judgment, it is clear that we have no idea what such beings may appear like,
were we able to perceive them. "Reptilian" may likely be an exaggeration of some quality they have that is reptile-like but not so ridiculous as
the vision of the Lizard King in a meeting with George Bush discussing plans for the NWO.
So, while saying, "I believe" would be a gross overstatement; denial would be too. Plus, if I base my bias on the strength of the rest of Icke's
message, I could almost say that some reptilian-ish beings asserting a fair amount of control over human affairs is a real possibility.
