6.16 – THE REPTILIANS (7.25.14)


Bishopville, South Carolina. June, 1988. 2:00 a.m. 17-year-old Christopher Davis had pulled over on a deserted road near Scape Ore Swamp to fix a flat tire. Just as he finished, he heard a noise behind him. He saw a strange, seven-foot-tall creature with red glowing eyes running towards him. Davis started to drive away, but the creature caught up with him and jumped on the roof of the car. Swerving hard to throw the creature off, he saw it had three fingers and green skin. Finally, it fell from the car, and Davis sped away.

“And he ended up getting out of where he was, and he went immediately home. He was so upset that his parents called the police department. Sheriff Liston Truesdale actually went out there and interviewed him. He asked him to take a lie detector test and this young boy passed the lie detector test with flying colors.”

John Rhodes (Founder, Reptoid Research Ctr)

What Christopher Davis told the detective he saw was a Lizard Man.

“And what’s interesting is the police took the story very, very seriously. Although Christopher Davis’ sighting of the Lizard Man was certainly the most famous and infamous one, it’s not the only one. They tracked down a number of other witnesses who both previously and after had seen the Lizard Man.”

In the spring of 1988, a crop duster named Frank Mitchell reported seeing what he said was a Lizard Man cross his grassy runway one morning as he was about to take off. And two years later, in 1990, Bertha Blythers and her five children claimed they nearly hit a lizard-like man while driving near the same swamp. Could these incidents all be related? Is it merely coincidence that three separate people on three separate occasions reported seeing a lizard-like man near the Scape Ore Swamp?

“Could there possibly be another species of life down here, something we’re not aware of, and they’re interacting with people?”

John Rhodes (Founder, Reptoid Research Ctr)

Further sightings of a so-called Lizard Man have been reported not only in this area, but also in Tennessee, Illinois and Austria. In fact, alleged encounters with these creatures have become so widespread, they are now collectively known by one name: the Reptilians. But could accounts of the Reptilians be more than just the product of overactive imaginations? Ancient Astronaut Theorists say yes, and as evidence they point to the legends of serpent gods that can be found throughout the world.

“In South America, Quetzalcoatl, Kukulkan they’re always referenced as serpent gods. Even in Japan or ancient China we have these dragon emperors and dragon gods. It’s very possible that there was a time in the past that ancient man was interacting with what appear to be living serpent beings a lost reptilian race.”

(Author, Knowledge Apocalypse)

“We can find these stories of serpent gods all around the world. I don’t mean just, you know, particular geographic regions. But on every continent, on virtually every ancient culture. You have them in India. You have them in China. In Greece. In England. In South and North America. In Africa. I mean, it doesn’t matter where you go in the world, there are these direct references to these serpent-like beings that descended from the sky. So, to me, this is not a figment of the imagination. And certainly not coincidence.”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

In addition to myths and legends passed down through oral history, early written texts also speak of serpent beings that were once present on Earth.

“The Bible speaks of a reptilian race the Seraphim we read about them in the Book of Isaiah. Some will interpret them as being the fiery ones, but the correct understanding is reptilian. There’s always been knowledge of the Reptilians. Some are good, others bad.”

Rabbi Ariel Bar Tzadok (Founder, KosherTorah School)

“Religious texts tell of reptilian beings whose existence is inexorably linked to that of the earth and humankind. So, for example, in the Bible, the book of Genesis has a story about a serpent who tempts Eve, the first woman, by offering her the forbidden fruit from the Tree of Knowledge. Eve falls for the snake’s blandishments and she eats of that apple and forever changes human history, causing Adam and Eve to be expelled from the Garden of Eden and causing the serpent, too, to be punished in that he is doomed to slither upon the ground as a punishment for his disobeying God’s will.”

– Sabina Magliocco, Ph.D.
(Prof. of Anthropology & Folklore, CSU Northridge)

“It is understood, in ancient legend, that prior to God punishing the serpent, the serpent was completely humanoid in character. And that this serpent this nachash was only one of a race of reptilian beings who served God.”

   – Rabbi Ariel Bar Tzadok (Founder, KosherTorah School)

“When you hear that story from a modern perspective, it sounds an awful lot like what people describe as the Reptilians, lizard-like beings, or beings with the faces or visage of a viper.”

– William Henry (Author / Investigative Mythologist),
(Author, Freedom’s Gate), (The Judgment Day Device),
(Lost Secrets of the Watchers), (The Secret of Sion),
(Egypt: The Greatest Show on Earth)

But if the serpent in the Garden of Eden really was a reptilian alien, as Ancient Astronaut Theorists suggest, could there be similar stories recorded in the ancient texts of other cultures as well?

“In the Koran there’s a fascinating category of creatures known as the djinn. The djinn are ancient. They were here before humans. They’re a category unto themselves, not unlike angels. And at one point Iblis, the leader of the djinn, offended God, crossed him, was rebellious and was cursed like the serpents in the Garden of Eden and became earthbound, trapped on Earth for eternity and they are here with us.”

– Jonathan Young, Ph.D.
(Founding Curator, Joseph Campbell Archives)

“Throughout the Mediterranean and the Near East, there is a very strong belief linking snakes, skinks, lizards and other reptiles to supernatural or magical creatures and in some cases, to the souls of ancestors. So, it can be considered bad luck to kill one of these beings if you find it in the home because it might be a djinn or another kind of supernatural creature that is visiting you.”

– Sabina Magliocco, Ph.D.
(Prof. of Anthropology & Folklore, CSU Northridge)

The djinn. Kukulkan. The Serpent in the Garden of Eden. Could all of these stories about otherworldly serpent beings able to influence humanity be based on fact? And if they have been part of human history for thousands of years, where do they come from? Are they alien creatures coming to Earth from another planet, or could they be living right under our feet?
