Without a doubt Lizards ARE REAL, how do you know Stanley? Simple, I'VE SEEN THEM. ;-) On the other hand here is a brief history regarding the Illuminati, all my own work. ;-)
I do believe it goes back centuries, in fact to be exact, to the year America was founded ha ha ha. Question, is the illuminati real? Well they were when founded in the late 1700's then known as the Order of the Illuminati or, the Bavarian Illuminati, as it's known today.
There are so many versions of what the Illuminati could be, are they Satanic? Masonic? Atheist? Reptilian? The theorists can't even agree on who, or what they are. Hollywood's done its bit to add to all this crap in the 20/21st century.
