Follow as in on twitter? They are probably laughing at his lunacy.

Follow as in disciples? Drop them, they'll thick your a lizard person.

He was right about Jimmy Savile and the paedophiles in the upper echelons of the BBC and government.

His main mistake was claiming to be the son of God. It gave skeptics ammunition to discount everything else he says.

I did some further research, unwilling to simply go with the flow of public opinion. It turns out that his 'shapeshifting lizards' statement has also been misconstrued. He is referring to the sort of person (most people in leadership positions) whose brains are more developed in the primitive area that used to be more prevalent when humans were less developed - the parts that push us to take risks.

So, although he doesn't exactly cover himself in glory in terms of public face, it's worth taking a look at some of his views and beliefs before immediately discounting him.

cao that's interesting about his theory on people in leadership and makes sense when you put it that way. No foresight, lack of empathy, just acting on impulse (those are dominant qualities in our politicians).

All that being said, I have a couple of David Icke followers as friends and in some ways, they have lost a bit of credibility to me. Still, my curiosity is piqued and of course I'm going to check out David Icke's site. grin
