I was a bit peeved and disappointed on the Reptilian episode.
It jumped to conclusions very quickly, ending with a very confrontational and aggressive interview with Icke.
I'm not convinced of the Reptilian theories myself, but there's a big difference between a purported investigation, and a targeted, debunking rant.
I don't agree with Icke on everything, and especially not on his views on medicine and HIV.
However, on the topic of Reptilians the eyes of the one lady did change.
That was never even addressed or debunked (although it could have been faked with sleight of hand and lenses).
Why didn't Ventura come to South Africa and speak to Credo Mutwa?
He seconds the opinions of Icke.
Sure, maybe he's also a fake, but perhaps he would have answered the questions very differently.
Why were none of the Christian pastors and authors interviewed who also believe in shape-shifting and reptilians (just they claim these are demons,
rather than aliens)?
Actually they are inter-dimensional beings according to Icke, so there is a "spiritual" or non-physical aspect.
So ultimately it's going into religion, or people's beliefs, and that was never recognized.
Certainly a big portion of believers in shape-shifting come from a Christian, anti-Icke position.
This wasn't even mentioned in the program.
And then why were none of the claimed "reptilian" families interviewed?
Why seek out a local medium and a client?
Not very classy Mr Ventura.
I dare him to organize an interview with a royal family member and ask them to their face!
Clearly the way to see them would be to hang out with them.
Did Mr Ventura even attempt that?
No, of course not, because they probably wouldn't allow it.
And then, "show me a reptilian" is a neither here nor there as an argument.
Perhaps it would have been like going to Argentina in the 1950s and demanding:"Show me a Nazi"!
OK, we have have proof of Eichmann nowadays, but for many years they were just allegations.
There's probably even still societies and countries today where you won't immediately find a gay person.
The point is that just because one doesn't have immediate proof that something exists, doesn't mean that it doesn't.
Especially if the allegations are against a very exclusive, powerful and secretive group of people.
Historical background on reptilian gods and archetypes were mentioned for a second at the start, but never explored.
Instead we got a conclusion that our leaders are 'just humans" (whatever that means, when monarchies still believe they are appointed by God).
But then why do they practice the occult, and why are so many religions believers in possession?
Yes, they may be humans, but that does not negate the idea that some beings are very attracted to possessing humans.
Perhaps Mr Ventura could debunk each one of those beliefs, ranging from Voodoo to Islam?
I was a bit disappointed with the money that the Icke industry rakes in per year.
If I compare that to some pastors on Ministry Watch who use similar ideas (on demons instead of aliens), it is actually not much.
We also don't know his expenses, and his personal cut.
And whatever Icke might believe, to deliver a 9-hour lecture while keeping people enthralled is worth a high salary.
I feel Ventura could have done a better job by debunking all the claims in detail, instead of barging in on Icke and demanding to see proof right
Duh, if it was that simple, it wouldn't be a conspiracy!
So why hammer Icke when almost everyone on Ventura's show (including him) are really doing the same thing?
Why not ask Icke something like: "When did you first hear of the reptilians and how?"
Then one can start drawing conclusions, instead of attacking him.
