I've never watched the Lacerta Files
, so I can't really comment on whether or not they have been debunked just yet. However, the Reptilian
theory is just a spin on the old Illuminati/Freemason/Templar bogeyman motif.
People, by our very nature, seem to need some kind of conflict for us to engage in. I don't really know the psychological explanation for it, but,
you can see it as early as the rise of the Hebrews. The Lord (Yhvh) was opposed by the Satan, an angel who served as the adversary to Yhvh's divine
plan. Christianity, following in the footsteps of the Jews, continued this motif, by disconnecting the Satan from Yhvh, thus creating the Devil, the
father of all lies and evil, no longer subject to God's will, but forever seeking to undermine His greatness and glory.
As religion began to fall away, conspiracy theorists picked up the ball and continued to head for the end zone. Secret societies, like the Illuminati
and the Freemasons, became a stand in for the absent Devil. When it became clear that the Illuminati were a group that disbanded several hundred years
ago, and the Freemason's opened their doors to members and nonmembers alike, the common folk needed a new bogeyman.
Instead of turning to the Devil, or humans in league with him, the people looked to the skies, to an enemy whose motives could never be worked out,
whose presence could not be proved or disproved with theology or history: extraterrestrials; aliens.
Enter the Reptilians: alien-human hybrids from another world. Not present in Christian dogma, so not able to be disproved by it. Not a historical
society, so not able to be disproved by historical evidence. Not human, so not able to be disproved by science. They are a fantastical bogeyman, and
fantasy can survive within the human psyche, in lieu of reason, logic, and all efforts to the opposite.
Doesn't mean they actually exist though. When the UFO cult, and abduction phenomenon becomes a burnt out subject, the people will just invent a new
bogeyman. Not the Devil, the Illuminati, or the Reptilians. Something completely original without precedence in the previous incarnations.
