Inside the Great Reptilian Conspiracy: From Queen Elizabeth to Barack Obama -- They Live!

Early on a mid-October afternoon in 2009, news broke that 6-year-old Falcon Heene was lost somewhere in the air as high as 7,000 feet, riding an experimental 20-foot Mylar helium balloon that had taken off from his family's backyard in Fort Collins, Colorado. Falcon's father, Richard, a self-described "science detective" and meteorologist, was in the early phase of building what he called a "3D low-altitude vehicle." While Richard was apparently elsewhere, one of Falcon's brothers alleged that he witnessed Falcon untie the balloon, and that it had taken off into the sky. The parents first called a local Denver news station; then they called 911. A child hunt ensued. Police and rescue personnel were sent flying down dirt roads to find the balloon. National Guard scrambled two UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters to assist search operations.

Five hours into the search, it emerged that Falcon was never aboard the balloon. He had apparently been hiding in a cardboard box in the rafters of the Heene family garage. A missing child story was now an amateur hoax story.

"[Heene] was motivated," his former assistant wrote in a tell-all a few days after the Balloon Boy hoax, by "the idea there are alien beings that walk among us and are shape shifters, able to resemble human beings and running the upper echelon of our government. Somehow a secret government has covered all this up since the U.S. was established, and the only way to get the truth out there was to use the mainstream media to raise Richard to a status of celebrity, so he could communicate with the masses."

Richard Heene, it turned out, wanted more than 15 minutes of fame. He had an important message for the world -- about Lizards and the New World Order. He is far from alone.

Tip Of the Iceberg

Richard Heene is one of hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions, of people who adhere to an overlapping series of modern-day conspiracy theories sharing a central thesis: Lizard-like aliens from outer space inhabit human bodies and control the human race.

Videos similar to the footage of the "reptilian" Hillary Clinton that Heene referred to number in the hundreds on YouTube. They join part of a much larger body of thousands of videos uploaded by conspiracy theorists in the reptilian circle that purportedly show proof of live, on-camera, human shape-shifting from human to lizard form. The videos typically feature news interviews with national political figures like Hillary, Queen Elizabeth II or George H.W. Bush, or segments from TV news broadcasts. Some of the footage is doctored to place lizard-like slitted pupils in the eyes of political elites, or is slowed down to mutate the voice of the speaker and enhance the semblance of a lizard-like hiss emanating from the mouth of, say, a local TV news woman's tendency to sustain the "S" in plural nouns.

Long before the days of YouTube, long before the dawn of our civilization, buried deep in mythology and ancient imagination is the notion of shape-shifting -- humans and gods inhabiting different animal or spiritual forms in the real world. Equally ancient is the human belief in the correlation of world events with the patterns of the cosmos, the desire to associate their gods with stars and planets and comets, and the conviction that their cosmic deities played a hand in the fates of heroes and tribes.

These two threads of belief are the basic building blocks for a wide host of astral-reptile deities across human history: the Mesoamerican god Quetzalcoatl, a feathered lizard who in his travels between the earth and the sky established their boundaries and gave order to the universe. The many dragons of Chinese legends traveled from earth to the heavens using clouds for transportation; the most powerful of the four Dragon Kings, known as Long Wang, could shift from human to reptile form, and had the power to flood cities or cause droughts.

For updating this myth for modern conspiracists, we can thank Russian pseudo-scholar Zecheria Sitchin. It was Sitchin's unsubstantiated translations of ancient Mesopotamian seals that combined reptile shape-shifting with the origin myth of the Sumerian deities, known as the Annunaki,who inhabited heaven and hell, and that these are the same beings called Nephilimin in the Bible. Sitchin summarized his origin thesis in a 2010 New York Times profile:

It starts with the planet Nibiru, whose long, elliptical orbit brings it near Earth once every 3,600 years or so. The [Annunaki] were technologically advanced humanlike beings, Mr. Sitchin said, standing about nine feet tall. Some 450,000 years ago, they detected reserves of gold in southeast Africa and made a colonial expedition to Earth, splashing down in what is now the Persian Gulf. Mr. Sitchin said these Nibiru-ites recruited laborers from Earth's erect primates to build eight great cities. Enki, who became the Sumerians' god of science, bestowed some of the Nibiru-ites' advanced genetic makeup upon these bipeds so they could work as miners. This is how Mr. Sitchin explains what scientists attribute to evolution. He says the aliens' cities were washed away in a great flood 30,000 years ago, after which they began passing on their knowledge to humans… the Nibiru-ites finally jetted home in their spacecraft, around 550 B.C.
