Conspiracy theorists will be in for a treat when aliens, UFOs and what the Vatican knows about them come up for discussion at an international conference in Johannesburg next month.

The UFO Science and Consciousness conference, organised by '80s musician and rapper Michael Tellinger, will include everyone from serious scientists to people whose views are based more on faith than fact.

"Of course, extraterrestrials exist - all ancient texts and even the Bible talk about them. People must remember that we are the descendant's of extraterrestrials," said Tellinger.

Experts on the panel include Claire Janisch, a chemical engineer focused on environmental technology and specialising in biomimicry.

US panellist Lloyd Pye is a researcher, author and lecturer known for his intervention theory. His breakthrough genetic research on the Star Child skull, a 900-year-old hominid skull that contains DNA unlike that of humans, has raised a global debate about the possibility of its cosmic origins.

On the other side of the spectrum, Laura Eisenhower, great granddaughter of former US president Dwight D Eisenhower, will speak about aliens and a treaty that she believes her great-grandfather signed with an extraterrestrial delegation.

"When Eisenhower was president he met an extra-terrestrial delegation; it was there where he signed a treaty. There was also an exchange of technology.

"Why do you think there was a drastic improvement in technology after Eisenhower was president?"

People will also be treated to a first-hand account on the inner workings of the Vatican. The keynote speaker will be Irish academic Miceal Ledwith, who spent 17 years as an adviser to the last two popes and 16 years as professor of systematic theology and as dean of the theology faculty at St Patrick's College, Dublin.

Tellinger said he will reveal the many secrets kept within the vaults of the Roman Catholic Church.

Tellinger insists that aliens are merely "highly evolved beings who exist on Earth and on other planets too".

"People who watch Star Trek will know what extraterrestrials look like," he said.
