David Vaughan Icke is one of the greatest conspiracy theorists that has ever lived. Many people have theorized that there is a secret world government but David took that theory, added some reptiles and a holographic moon, and a legend was born.
The life of David
David was a shy and nervous child who grew up in a very poor family, at times they would have to hide from the council man wanting to collect the rent. He failed at school and left at 15 to pursue a football career (as a goalkeeper) after being spotted by Coventry City. Unfortunately due to Rheumatoid arthritis he had to retire from football at the age of 21.
Icke began finding work as a reporter. He became a sports presenter for Newsnight in 1981, a year later he moved on to co-host the BBC sports program Grandstand. His contract terminated with the BBC in 1990.
Icke began to explore unconventional medicine during the 80's to help with his arthritis. In 1989 he saw a book on psychic healing by Betty Shine and decided to pay her a visit. On further meetings, Betty told Icke that he had been sent to heal the earth, and that the spirit world would start to use him to give messages to the people. The seed was sown.
It was at a burial ground in Peru in 1991 that Icke had an experience with a 'higher level of consciousness'.
