It's more telling that there were "serpent" gods worshipped in the past.
As we know, "gods" are usually mistaken derivatives of otherworldly beings that existed at the time which did not fit into the lowly knowledge of
Flying suns = UFOs
Magical men = "gifted" healers
For all we know, the reptilian gods are really alien species from another planet, who have visited us before and are still visiting. Maybe they
haven't even left, and are still reproducing!
Would also answer the question of why many members in high power are seen as reptiles - but not all - and that is because some of them have had
extensive lineages in history, and thus, have a connection to the ancient histories of these "species".
For example, the Clintons are usually said to be reptiles. More Bill than Hillary, but Hillary has got her fair share of theories too, least of 'em
reptilian ones. Bill, however, has entire books dedicated to his "reptile" heritage. Likewise, for Bush, though the Bushes have been theorized to be
another type of alien altogether, with guns ablazing, economy a-crashing, and world a-destroying.
Why doesn't Barack Obama get these claims?
Because while Obama is Muslim, yada yada, closeted terrorist, yada yada, the one conspiracy that he is exempt from is the "President is Alien"
conspiracy, because he does not have lineage in US politics and has no particular presence in history.
Whereas the Clintons, Bushes, have, and in UK politics there's the Queen and her entire monarch, etc.
