They are everywhere! Forms might differ,relationship to dragon differs between cultures but it is present in myths everywhere. From American indians via Europe/China/Middle East (not sure about Africa) to Australian aborigenes.
Still not accept the reptilian race/ dimensions idea, but it is clear to me that its not as simple as it used to be. Why Humanity is so obsessed with overgrown superpowerful intelligent snake-like reptilians with varient add-ons?
Over 100 different charges had been leveled against the Templars. Most of them were dubious, as they were the same charges that were leveled against the Cathars and many of King Philip's enemies; he had earlier kidnapped Pope Boniface VIII and charged him with near identical offenses of heresy, spitting and urinating on the cross, and sodomy. Yet Malcolm Barber observes that historians "find it difficult to accept that an affair of such enormity rests upon total fabrication". The "Chinon Parchment suggests that the Templars did indeed spit on the cross,"
"In the trial of the Templars one of their main charges was their supposed worship of a heathen idol-head known as a 'Baphomet' ('Baphomet' = Mahomet = Muhammad)
Baphomet (English pronunciation: /ˈbæfɵmɛt/, from medieval Latin Baphometh, baffometi, Occitan Bafometz) is an imagined pagan deity (i.e., a product of Christian folklore concerning pagans), revived in the 19th century as a figure of occultism and Satanism. Often mistaken for Satan, it represents the duality of male and female, as well as Heaven and Hell or night and day signified by the raising of one arm and the downward gesture of the other. It can be taken in fact, to represent any of the major harmonious dichotomies of the cosmos. It first appeared in 11th and 12th century Latin and Provençal as a corruption of "Mahomet", the Latinisation of "Muhammad", but later it appeared as a term for a pagan idol in trial transcripts of the Inquisition of the Knights Templar in the early 14th century.

Maybe the guy has advanced dementia, and is getting trolled on camera. Because that is sort of how it looks to me, and it is bumming me out.
Here, OP, I found this while poking around.
It's an expired listing for a genuine Templar Djinn "Dragon Lord" ring. The going price was $8,888.00.
There is a truly immense pile of flavor text accompanying the listing. A warning to epileptics: many flashing Maltese cross .gifs ahead.
This, though, was my favorite bit:
You will be given a sacred Templar cleansing/anointing ritual (by email) that must be performed as well as an evocation ritual . His true name will be provided only to the new companion by email.
For almost nine grand, I should effing hope so.
The worship of Baphomet seems to have some truth to it.
Greenough modeled his massive (30 tons) figure of “Enthroned Washington” on the great statue of Zeus Olympios which was one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World (and which was destroyed in late Antiquity).

a few random notes (because I know at length whatever I write will be overlooked by most)
-Dagon (from Sirius) created the Dogon tribe - who based their calendar on the 50 year orbit of Sirius B around Sir. A - they also spoke of a third, yet to be discovered star - though its presence as a perturber can be observed in the deviations of B's orbit. "God is to Man what Man is to Dog."
Conclusions. These deep images allow us to search for small but yet undetected companions to Sirius. Apart from Sirius-B, no other source is detected within the total 25´´ field. A comparison of the flux expected from the faintest known brown dwarfs at the distance of Sirius demonstrates that the above limiting magnitudes correspond to a star of spectral type later than T5 at 5´´ and T7 at 10´´. Using theoretical spectra of brown dwarfs and planet-size objects, we also show that the end of the brown dwarf sequence is reached in the outer part of the image. The minimum detectable mass is around 10 inside the planetary limit, indicating that an extrasolar planet at a projected distance of ~25 AU from Sirius would have been detected.
