Scattered mythological and archaeological evidence lends credibility to the theories of an ancient reptilian race. Possibly extra terrestrial in origin and possibly of Earthly origin that may have pre-dated or even coexisted with the Human Race. The Ubaid Lizardmen are an example of Reptilian People. These artifacts however, lack an extant civilization or mythos to help explain them.
Lost City of The Lizard People - Los Angeles California hosts a local legend that came to light in the 1930s. A Mining engineer named George Warren Shufelt was searching for oil, or other lucrative minerals deposits when he claims to have stumbled upon the tunnel system with hid high tech gadget. In a conversation with Little Chief Green Leaf of the Hopi Indians [AKA L. Macklin] Shufelt learned of a native legend regarding a lost civilization deep under Los Angeles. It was said to be one of five possible such cities in the Western USA. A second possible candidate lays under the Colorado Dessert.
Ubaid Lizard Men - The Ubaid Lizardmen - Ancient Alien theorists have speculated that perhaps theses lizardman figurines depict an ancient race of star people who came to Earth in the Ubaidian Era. Nay Sayers point out that the Ubaid civilization practiced skull modification whereby the skull was manipulated from infancy to deform to an oblong shape. This would explain the head shapes. The almond-shaped oval eyes are a common primitive stylistic rendering of Asiatic features, and less pronounced examples have earlier been found around the region. But why the two features were merged together on one genre of sculpture is a mystery in of itself. The Ubaid themselves were not Asiatic, had they been there would have been a more realistic depiction of the eyes - which is evidenced by ancient oriental art.
Reptilian Race - Myths, legends and some archaeological evidence lends weight to the theories of an ancient reptilian race. Possibly extra terrestrial in origin and possibly of Earthly origin that may have pre-dated or even coexisted with the Human Race.
Silurian Hypothesis Humanities Predecessors - A provocative paper entitled "The Silurian Hypothesis" takes "Worlds before our Own" [Brad Steiger] to a new level. It is a scientific look at the possibility of there being an intelligent species that may have populated the Earth before the age of humans. References to an ancient race of intelligent reptilians is made. It is further implied that these reptilians / lizard people existed on Earth before mankind.
