One of the most popular conspiracy theories of the 21st century is that of a “reptilian elite.” This theory suggests that shape-shifting reptilian beings have infiltrated the upper echelons of society, including governments, banks, and royal families. Proponents of this theory claim that these reptilian beings are not only controlling everything but also deriving energy from human suffering.
The Origin of the Reptilian Elite Theory
The origin of this theory can be traced back to David Icke, a former professional footballer and sports broadcaster turned conspiracy theorist. In 1999, he published a book titled “The Biggest Secret,” which presented this theory and claimed that these reptilian beings have been controlling humanity for centuries. Since then, the theory has gained a following, and many people believe in its validity.
Lack of Scientific Evidence
Despite its popularity, there is no scientific evidence to support the existence of a reptilian elite. The theory is based purely on speculation and has no factual basis. The idea of shape-shifting reptilians is simply impossible and has no basis in science or reality.
Even if we set aside the issue of shape-shifting, there is no concrete evidence to support the idea that a group of powerful beings is controlling our lives. Governments and other institutions have always been controlled by a group of people, but there is no credible evidence that these are extraterrestrial or shape-shifting creatures.
The Danger of Believing
Believing in the existence of a reptilian elite can be dangerous, both individually and collectively. For individuals, it can lead to paranoia, delusion, and mental instability. When it comes to society as a whole, it can weaken our trust in institutions and each other.
Many people who believe in the reptilian elite theory also believe in other baseless claims, such as the flat earth theory or anti-vaccination. This leads to people acting based on beliefs that are not supported by evidence, and that can ultimately lead to harm to themselves or others.
