"Have I entered an alternate reality?"

That was my question today at lunch today when a couple of my friends talked about their belief in Reptilians. Seriously, they believe that shape shifting lizard people from another planet walk among us. The scary thing is that these are normal guys, guys I count as good friends, not some sorry sots afflicted with paranoid schizophrenia. Of course they believe that the US government arranged 9/11 and that the Illuminati (who happen to be Reptilians) are running the world. (I'm surprised they haven't brought up chemtrails yet.) Am I supposed to listen to this BS and pretend that it has any relation to reality? Sorry, not gonna happen, even if it makes me look like the close minded skeptic. I'm going to ridicule these ideas and ask for evidence, and some vague comment about dark matter making up 90% of the universe isn't going to cut it.

I hope you will join me and speak up for reality if you find yourself in this type of situation.

You know, I wasn't going to tell you, but the truth is, I'm a reptilian myself. Hatched from a leathery egg, I didn't achieve a fully humanoid appearance until the age of 12... just a few years before you met me.

@Ilorien
Fully humanoid appearance? Hmm...

You have not entered an alternate reality! Why would you question your beliefs when hearing this kind of malarky? Seriously, someone tells you they think there are reptilian people walking the earth and you question yourself? You don't flat out attack them and scream out that they are wack jobs and make a huge scene wherever you are at the time... or just laugh in their face? Does this rant make me close minded? And I always thought there was something a bit slippery about ilorien... questionable at best!
