I hope I posted this in the right place, I feel like there's a lot of places this could go.

I was watching the View today and Obama said we still have a REPTILIAN part of our brain, when he was asked why we are still racist.... I just thought it was kind of odd, especially reading the boards about all the reptilian conspiracies.

This is the only writing I could find about it so far.. I'm sure they'll be a clip about it later...




So was he comparing us to actual reptiles? i.e. lizards... or...?

It's known as the Triune Brain:


The triune brain consists of the reptilian complex, the paleomammalian complex (limbic system), and the neomammalian complex (neocortex), viewed as structures sequentially added to the forebrain in the course of evolution. The triune brain hypothesis became familiar to a broad popular audience through Carl Sagan's Pulitzer prize winning 1977 book The Dragons of Eden.


It's a theory that has never been accepted by the world wide neurobiologist community.

Of course, David Icke has plenty to say on the matter...

The Reptilian Brain

From that link:


As you will see, "territoriality" extends far beyond a patch of earth in humans--- and "will-to-power" has many masks. "Us" attack "Them" because of their skin color. It is the color display that "Us" attack. "Us" are cock lizards (& countless other reptiles). All racism is reptilian.


Has Obama been reading Ickes work?

Uh, gee I don't think it has do with "reptilians".
It just means we have an educated President for a change!
I can see how having an educated President might confuse people!

I can't believe I'm coming to his defense but he is referring to the R-complex part of the brain that is responsible for basic human motor skills. I disagree with him because I think racism is a learned behavior and not instinctual.

There is also a part of our brains that is derivative of when we were fish, which is responsible for our love of music. Obama is on the ball here with the Reptilian brain it's basically responsible for controlling alot of subconcious functions.

Really good link describing the evolution of the brain. It's not too heavy on the science either;

Thanks for all the cool links.

I'm not uneducated and confused.. I just don't know much about the topic.

I'll just continue to be a silent lurker.

Racism is a part of our survival instinct.
We naturally fear that which is different.
This is not necessessarily limited the difference of race.
Many years ago all Strangers were suspect of being a threat.

This fear of the different/strange runs across all species of animals.

You're reading too much into it because not only is it a common phrase but, those who use it, like Obama just did, don't/haven't even considered where it probably originated from.

Only us "Annunaki" believers/consider-ers realize where it stems from.

i tried to find the video for you, but there are at least 6 parts of the view, I didn't know the show was that long. i can't stand to watch that show for that long, so i'm sorry you'll need someone with more time on their hands. if he did say this, that would be funny, because david icke is the only other person i've ever heard talk about the reptilian brain publicly.

It was Kenya, no wait, that's his place of birth.

Was it Hawaii? Chicago? The mean streets of Akron?

The world may never know.

I'm sorry but I disagree with you.
Please explain what you mean by "different".
Sure people naturally fear what may be different, and if we see a person with two heads or three legs then yes, I would agree with you, but I don't think that applies to skin color.

Think about it, two toddlers of different races will naturally proceed to play with each other because they have yet to be influenced by the ideals of their society and/or the prejudices of their parents.

That's why I say racism is a learned behavior.

Maybe it's just a saying. If he looked embarassed it may be different. I am trying to filter out the anuk-whatever they are, race idea out of my head. because frankly its absurd and its weird enough on this site lol
MAYBE, maybe, maybe we don't come from this planet. That I can kind of swallow. But reptile humanoids? Jesus the alien?
It just goes too far sometimes. No offense....

As I said. He probably said it as a saying. Do you have a clip?

It is a common term used by many people.
jeez.

Not really. It just indicates that he doesn't really believe in allah.
