Yeah pretty much this, I also think Icke goes completely off the track with the whole reptilian thing.
He makes decent cases for the illuminati and manipulation of power from behind the scenes, but that is not stuff that he came up with ... he's just working off of information from more reliable guys like Aaron Russo etc. before him.
IMO he just dilutes it with the whole reptilian angle, and that again makes the entire movement look like loonies. Like you guys, I'm also on the whole "never say never" thing, but unlike all this other stuff that has so much evidence and shady stuff behind it, he has no real basis for it. Like you said, a broadcasting color glitch now and then does not make people aliens. I've seen similar things in home DVDs and unless my family is aliens (ZOMG!), that seems pretty flimsy.
I think Sooj might be being a bit tongue in cheek with his support for that one, though I could be wrong. Although I suspect the royal family is a bunch of knobs tied in at the very top of all this as well.
I also think Icke's spiritual take on things is a bit off and misleading, though I agree with some of it. But again the spiritual realm of things is based more on speculation, life experiences, conscience and faith than hard proof anyway so this is just personal preference.
Anyway, true or not, the reptilian stuff makes for some great sci fi .. you guys ever seen "They Live" back in the day?
Holy Roddy piper nut shots fight!
