Mythologies from all over world incorporate some sort of snake or lizard-men.
lies lies lies! They are here, th...they hide! Among us. Maybe you are one of them?
One thing is for sure is that humans have been fascinated with snakes and snakes or some kind of reptile was incorporated in their culture and beliefs.
I think there is something to this.
You always see references to snakes in so many things: The Egyptians, the Sumerians, in the bible, other African tribes, Hindus, Chinese (dragon), South Americans. Different continents with the same animal revered in some way.
Excuse me but you are wrong. If you knew anything about the Anasazi, Hopi and Zuni myths and legends, you would know that even they themselves say what they are. This is not an interpretation. These myths and legends come directly from the descendants of these tribes themselves. Unless of course you are saying you know better than these Native Americans did, and you believe they are just crazy.
I am sorry, but your theory is flat out wrong. Hopi Indians as well as the Chinese have many stories of shape shifting reptilians that predate your scientist from 1980 and 1940's Hollywood.
.... new research has shown that it is possible for some information to be inherited biologically through chemical changes that occur in DNA.
Researchers at the Emory University School of Medicine, in Atlanta, found that mice can pass on learned information about traumatic or stressful experiences – in this case a fear of the smell of cherry blossom – to subsequent generations.
The results may help to explain why people suffer from seemingly irrational phobias – it may be based on the inherited experiences of their ancestors.

Why go to the 70s when the 90s had better information and technology
as far as origins my brain is still shot from learning elsewhere on another thread but still nice to see you around and please don't take my monster bat

"I also hope in the interest of Denying Ignorance this finally puts the Reptilian Alien myth to rest"
The reptilian myth spans thousands of years and you're putting it to bed in a single thread??
Those petroglyphs are not representative of "reptilian aliens".
You dont know that. Your re just shrugging off the stories, artifacts etc as unrelated to serve the relevance of your thread.
Not at all. I recognize them for what they are. Stories. Fictions. Myths. And modern day shoehorning them into the "Ancient Alien" narrative, no matter how ridiculous it is.
Not to mention, most of those petroglyphs look nothing like these supposed "reptilians".
They represent animal spirits, gods, etc.
Perhaps you should talk with cultural anthropologists about those artifacts, you know, people who actually have a better understanding of the subtleties of distinct cultures, their languages, mythology, religion etc.... rather than just listen to this guy:
One doesn't need "stories" when one understand their historical and cultural context.

Dinosaurs lived for over 250 million years, it seems like they had plenty of time to evolve into higher forms before the k/T event. If they did evolve how would we know?
Fossilized Bones. Plain and simple. The same way we know they existed at all.edit on 30-12-2013 by JadeStar because: (no reason given)
Great thread astronomer lady.
Well researched and set out.
Now if we can only get you to listen to some of our dinosaur UFO music (instead of that infernal din young people call music), you may be able to convince me there's something to this 'astronomy' (and ergo, science) racket.
Also, massively in your favour (and OT like much else of my brief commentary), is the fact that you can use apostrophes correctly. Not a failing of youth alone, but it makes a grumpy grammarian happy to see such a thing.
