David Icke

David Icke (born April 29, 1952 [1] (http://www.davidicke.com/icke/about)) is a British former footballer and football commentator, now better known as a controversial writer and conspiracy theorist.

He was born in the city of Leicester in the English Midlands, into what he calls a "working class" family. Having wanted to be a professional footballer for quite some time, he left school to play for Coventry City[?] and Hereford United[?] in the English league, where he played as a goalkeeper.

His football career was brought to a premature end by rheumatoid arthritis, at which point he joined the BBC. He became fairly well known as a broadcaster in this period.

After leaving the BBC he became an activist for the Green Party rising swiftly to become their media spokesperson. He left the Green party in 1991 and began to express unconventional views. He claimed that he was God, or Son of God, or some sort of God in a more general sense (it depended on the interview). After being widely derided and ridiculed, often on TV, he disappeared from public view for a short time.

He returned to the limelight in the late 1990s with a book, The Biggest Secret: The Book That Will Change the World. In it he claimed to have discovered that the world was being run by a New World Order, controlled by twelve-foot tall human-blood-drinking shapeshifting alien lizards. The group, known as the Babylonian Brotherhood, implicates practically every world leader as either an alien, or working for them. The "evidence" for this is often considered absurd by non-adherents. For instance, he apparently claims that the car-rental company Avis is actually a front for the Brotherhood. His evidence? Avis spelled backwards is Siva, a member of the Hindu pantheon – so they must be involved.

Some anti-racist activists around the Western World have decried Icke's theories as being anti-semitic. The activists say that when he speaks of repitles he is speaking of Jews. However, Icke has denyed those allegations. Icke explains that the reptilians are not humans of any race, but are extra-dimentional entities that enter and control human minds. He also says that the white race (those with blue eyes in particular) are most susceptible to reptilian influence.

He has since published a number of additional books following this theme at various levels of detail, the first being too large to be read by most casual readers. His latest work continues in this thread, an attempt to explain the September 11, 2001 Terrorist Attack as being a part of this lizard-led conspiracy.
