The Reptilian Mythos:

On Monday’s show, paranormal investigator Scott Roberts talked about the pervasive presence of the serpent in human history, religion, and in the alien mythos of the Reptilians. He explored the idea that non-human intelligences, such as the Annunaki described by Zecharia Sitchin, visited and possibly created and controlled humans. Though the Annunaki weren’t specifically described as being serpentine in appearance, he conjectured they could be Reptilians. A mythology, which may or may not be true, has been built up around the Reptilians– that they dominated humankind in the ancient past, and continue to do so today from behind the scenes, he outlined. There may be anecdotal or circumstantial evidence regarding their presence, but it remains impossible to prove, he continued.

Roberts discussed the religious and cultural legends of the serpent which extend all the way back to the beginnings of civilization. Curiously, the serpent is generally both feared and revered at the same time. He noted that the serpent ‘Nachash’ in the Bible’s Garden of Eden is not referred to as Satan or Lucifer, but rather thought of as a trickster or mischief maker that brings chaos and the forbidden. Some positive depictions include the Chinese dragon which symbolized life and fertility, and in ancient Egypt, the serpent represented life and renewal, with its ability to shed its skin, and reveal a new one. Atum was the Egyptian snake-man deity, and Quetzalcotl, the feathered serpent god of the Mayans, he added.

In the Hindu texts, he noted, there were tales of Krishna, “who sat atop a coiled serpent beneath the Banyan tree and…delivered the forbidden knowledge of the gods to the humans.” He also spoke about the heretical Serpent Seed Doctrine– the idea that Satan spawned a child through Eve, and that this lineage of Lucifer continues on. Roberts, who is the one of the organizers of the Paradigm Symposium coming later this year, said he seeks to bridge the gap between the scientific and academic communities and the more fringe groups with their unconventional approaches and ideations.
