The Illuminati, according to Icke, are descended from reptilians from Draco, who live in tunnels and caverns. Icke uses Doreal’s "Emerald Tablets",giving warnings of a Serpent Race. This were found in a Mayan temple where they had been deposited by Egyptian priests. Their supposed author, Thoth, had written them thirty-six thousand years ago in an Atlantean colony in Egypt. Like Zecharia Sithchen, Icke argues that the reptilians are Annunaki gods in the Enuma Elish.
