The Reptilian conspiracy is a bizarre theory that says large, humanoid reptiles are taking over the world. According to the Reptilian conspiracy, the human race has been infiltrated by Reptilians—humanoid aliens who can shape-shift and take on human form—in order to manipulate human affairs, cause chaos, and create fear and hatred, negative emotions that give them strength. The Reptilians are also called Reptoids, Reptiloids, Saurians, Draconians, or Annunaki and are said to live beneath the surface of the earth, emerging to shape-shift and take roles in world leadership. Barack Obama, George W. Bush, and Queen Elizabeth II have all been identified as “lizard people” by conspiracy theorists—who claim to have photographic “proof” of their allegations.
The idea of humanity being threatened by large, reptilian creatures has been a staple of science fiction for years: Godzilla and the Creature from the Black Lagoon are old examples. The 1983 television mini-series V added a twist in that the reptile-like aliens disguised themselves as humans. But the Reptilian conspiracy had its start in 1998 when a British conspiracy theorist and former sports reporter by the name of David Icke published a book called The Biggest Secret. Various science fiction writers and other conspiracy theorists have since continued the idea of reptile-like humanoids attempting to enslave the world. Politicians sometimes make jokes about the Reptilian conspiracy, accusing one another of being part of it. In one Canadian case from 2003, a politician insulted his opposition by calling him an “evil, reptilian kitten-eater from another planet.”
The Bible does not address the Reptilian conspiracy for the same reason it does not address belief in the tooth fairy. The Bible’s instruction is “have nothing to do with godless myths” (1 Timothy 4:7), and the Reptilian conspiracy certainly falls under that classification. While it’s possible that demons could take on the shape of an alien or other creature in order to fool humans and cause chaos and fear, there is no evidence that they indeed do such things. Scripture gives no indication that the Reptilian conspiracy is anything other than a delusion or demonic deception.
