StonehengeEverything you know is wrong.  That’s the message being sent from the 2011 UFO Science and Consciousness Conference, held in Johannesburg, South Africa last week.

While you’re sitting around wondering if we’re alone in the universe, and waiting until we’re finally contacted by aliens…wake up!  They’re already here, according to conference organizer Michael Tellinger.

“There’s a battle for Earth by some interesting dark forces,” Tellinger told News 24. “All the governments in the world are puppets and instruments to implement the will of a small group of individuals. The royal political bloodline goes back thousand of years.”

Aliens, not unlike their human counterparts, have been mining our planet for gold for thousands of years, it would seem.

Tellinger believes that extraterrestrial beings visited our planet looking for precious metals approximately 300,000 years ago, cloned their own genetic structure, and gave rise to mankind as we know it today. Ever since that time, they’ve been in continuous contact with our world leaders.

“They came to Earth looking for gold. We are all still obsessed with gold,” Tellinger said.  Due to its diamonds and gold deposits, South Africa is “at the heart of this,” Tellinger added.

“South Africa has been dubbed as the cradle of humankind and the place where all life form began, thus the reason [South Africa] was selected as the host for the UFO Science and Consciousness Conference,” he told The Citizen. “We have scientific evidence that there was physical life before humans which were African knowledge keepers and custodians of secret knowledge.”

Tellinger’s statements about alien beings mining for gold have been widely covered by the South African media, while comparisons between gold-digging alien conspiracy theories and the plot of the movie “Cowboys & Aliens” have been well-documents by the blog io9.

There were even more stunning claims presented at the conference.

Laura Eisenhower, who says she is the great-granddaughter of former president Dwight Eisenhower, claims that our world leaders have not only been in close contact with aliens, but have also signed treaties with them in nearly every decade.

“Extra-terrestrials have been working with governments for a while,” she told News 24.

The three-day conference brought 13 speakers from around the world to South Africa.

We’ve talked about extraterrestrial disclosure here before, but what if aliens are already here, either working with or trying to overthrow the so-called Illuminati of the world?

Recently, the White House addressed an online petition asking for extraterrestrial disclosure, denying that humans had any contact with aliens.

Before you right this stuff off as conspiracy theory madness, remember, there are large gaps in our evolutionary chain that not even the best scientists on the planet have been able to explain.

What if everything we think we know is wrong?  Are you open to the possibilities?

Will you choose the red pill, or the blue pill?
