- Alternative Character Interpretation: Beside the issues brought up under Space Jews, there has been some speculation that Arizona Wilder, the primary informant on The Reptilians, was a government plant, intended to introduce the alien angle as a way of discrediting Icke's findings on secret societies and political corruption.

- Hilarious in Hindsight: You've heard of faking one's death, right? The comical fantasy novel series Anonymous Rex runs on the idea that the dinosaurs faked their extinction. They live among us wearing highly convincing human disguises (that they only take off in private) and are indoctrinated since childhood to kill any real human who rumbles their ruse. This is exceedingly similar to Icke's theories — intelligent, sentient reptiles exist, live among us disguised as humans, and aren't keen on the rest of us finding out about their existence. If I didn't know any better, I'd say Icke saw a dino change out of his guise and survived, but interpreted things rather differently...
