Today Dailymail posted news on french Town Bugarach as follows:
Will this village be the only place to survive the end of the world next Friday?

French village Bugarach said to be only place that will survive Armageddon
Mayan calendar suggests world will end on December 21
Pic de Bugarach mountain overlooking village said to be an alien lair
Prophecy suggests aliens will emerge to pluck 'future survivors' to safety

Just I collected some news about that small french town which you can read it below.
The rocky mountain of Bugarach, rising just over 4,000 feet in the Corbières Mountains, is one of the poorest and least populated areas of France, has long attracted hikers and nature lovers who like to wander its gentle slopes in search of rare species of orchids.


"It's the town that will resist the end of the world," read a headline in La Dépêche recently, echoing "pilgrims" in Bugarach who believe that helpful extraterrestrials are waiting inside the mountain to whisk them away when the Mayan calendar ends on Dec. 21, 2012.

Bugarach – The Upside Down Mountain | South West Story

Bugarach – The Upside Down Mountain | South West Story | Bugarach | Scoop.it

The castle was built in the 16th and 17th centuries

 

As I write this post I realize that it will be already obsolete in 3 months, that it, if we – the earth inhabitants – are going to survive the fateful date of December 21, 1012.
If indeed the end of the Mayan calendar means the end of the world – as the New Age believers that flock to Bugarach think – then well, at least we have been there!
Taken at its face value Bugarach is a quiet charming little village at the feet of the peak with the same name, in heart of the Corbières region.
The Bugarach Mountain – that with its 1231 meters height dominates the region – is believed by some geologists to be an “upside down” mountain, which means that millions of years ago, at the time of the Pyreneean chain formation, a powerful explosion propelled its tip that landed afterwards the wrong way up.
The calcareous mountain with its uncounted number of caves, some of them not even yet explored, is also believed to have been the inspiration of Jules Verne’s books “Journey to the Centre of the Earth” and “Clovis Dardentor” where one of the characters is called Captain Bugarch.
The myth of the esoteric mountain resurfaced more recently in the ’60 when a certain Daniel Bettex started exploring the numerous cavities and, it seems, found a strange graffiti looking like the “Ark of the Testimony” – the chest containing the Tablets of Stone on which the Ten Commandments are inscribed – on a stretcher as well as the beginning of downward tunnel whose entrance was destroyed apparently intentionally.
In his correspondence with his friends Bettex reveled that he believed that he found in fact a road to a mysterious underground world.
Whatever the truth of his findings Bettex died one day unexpectedly in Bugarach.
Some other folk tales have the peak as a UFO landing patch, the place where the equally mysterious priest Saunier from the near by Rennes-le-Chateau village hid his treasure, a former nazi secret military base or, simpler, a point with a strong magnetic field that planes avoid (statement denied by the Civil Aviation Board)
These days the legends surrounding the mountain are again in overdrive with the arrival of the December 21, 2012 date when, some believe, Bugarach will be the only place left intact by the Armageddon.
Fact is that not only in the recent years the prices of land and houses have skyrocketed here but the little town of 200 people prepares for the arrival in December of around 100,000 visitors!

Bugarach

 

What does Bugarach in France have to do with 2012, armageddon, the end of the world, or prophecy and predictions of the apocalypse ?

In a series of posts on 2012 prediction review over the next weeks we look into this small French community hoping to find out how Bugarach has become a player in the 2012 phenomena.

We hope to answer how UFO's and religious sectarian cults meld Bugarach to the end of times....somehow.

We hope to discover some interesting facts about locals of this small France community and facts about expats and hippies who have found interest in the Pic de Bugarach which is an elevation in the Pyrenees Mountains.

We hope to identify who the cultists are who claim that this area of France is the safe haven that will carry them through 2012 alive.

We hope to discover how Atlantis and Lemuria, the lost continents of long ago eras, come to play a role in the growing relation between Bugarach and 2012.

We hope to discover how more down to earth people who believe these legends and religious convictions are a dangerous proposition that could lead to the death of followers are dealing with the relationship between 2012 and the small France community of Bugarach.

French village which will 'survive 2012 Armageddon' plagued by visitors

French village which will 'survive 2012 Armageddon' plagued by visitors | Bugarach | Scoop.it

The mayor of Bugarach, Jean-Pierre Delord stands on the outskirts of the village

 

The Telegraph :

 

The mayor of a picturesque French village has threatened to call in the army to seal it off from a tide of New Age fanatics and UFO watchers, who are convinced it is the only place on Earth to be spared Armageddon in 2012.

 

 

By Henry Samuel, Paris 5:00PM GMT 21 Dec 2010


Bugarach, population 189, is a peaceful farming village in the Aude region, southwestern France and sits at the foot of the Pic de Bugarach, the highest mountain in the Corbières wine-growing area.
But in the past few months, the quiet village has been inundated by groups of esoteric outsiders who believe the peak is an "alien garage".
According to them, extraterrestrials are quietly waiting in a massive cavity beneath the rock for the world to end, at which point they will leave, taking, it is hoped, a lucky few humans with them.
Most believe Armageddon will take place on December 21, 2012, the end date of the ancient Maya calendar, at which point they predict human civilisation will come to an end. Another favourite date mentioned is 12, December, 2012. They see Bugarach as one of perhaps several "sacred mountains" sheltered from the cataclysm.
"This is no laughing matter," Jean-Pierre Delord, the mayor, told The Daily Telegraph.

 

"If tomorrow 10,000 people turn up, as a village of 200 people we will not be able to cope. I have informed the regional authorities of our concerns and want the army to be at hand if necessary come December 2012."
Mr Delord said people had been coming to the village for the past 10 years or so in search of alien life following a post in an UFO review by a local man, who has since died. "He claimed he had seen aliens and heard the humming of their spacecraft under the mountain," he said.
The internet abounds with tales of the late President François Mitterrand being curiously heliported on to the peak, of mysterious digs conducted by the Nazis and later Mossad, the Israeli secret services.
A visit to Bugarach is said to have inspired Steven Spielberg in his film, Close Encounters of the Third Kind – although the actual mountain he used is Devil's Tower in Wyoming. It is also where Jules Verne found the entrance and the inspiration for A Journey to the Centre of the Earth.
Recently, however, interest in the site had skyrocketed, said the mayor, with online UFO websites, many in the US, advising people to seek shelter in Bugarach as the countdown to Armageddon commences.
"Many come and pray on the mountainside. I've even seen one man doing some ritual totally nude up there," said Mr Delord.
Sigrid Benard, who runs the Maison de la Nature guesthouse, said UFO tourists were taking over. "At first, my clientele was 72 per cent ramblers. Today, I have 68 per cent 'esoteric visitors'," he said.
Several "Ufologists" have bought up properties in the small hamlet of Le Linas, in the mountain's shadow for "extortionate" prices, and locals have complained they are being priced out of the market. Strange sect-like courses are held for up to €800 a week. "For this price, you are introduced to a guru, made to go on a procession, offered a christening and other rubbish, all payable in cash," said Mr Delord.
Valerie Austin, a retired Briton from Newcastle who settled in Bugarach 22 years ago who said the alien watchers were spoiling the village atmosphere.
"You can't go for a peaceful walk anymore. It's a beautiful area, but now you find people chanting lying around meditating. Everybody has the right to their own beliefs, but the place no longer feels like ours." She said alien watchers planted strange objects on the mountainside.
Recently she found a black virgin statuette cemented to the rock face.
Although she described the alien claims as "total rubbish", she said there was nevertheless something special about the place.
"It has a magnetic force in the scientific sense of the word. There is a special feeling here, but if I really believed the world were about to end, I'd have a whale of a time over the next two years" rather than look for salvation, she said.

End of days? ... cloud shrouds the mysterious Pic de Bugarach in south-west France

 

THE Sun has had a close encounter with a mysterious mountain which doom-mongers believe is their only hope when the world ends in 18 days time.

They think the eerie peak conceals a spaceship “garage” manned by extra-terrestrial beings.

Cult members pray the aliens will emerge to pluck them to safety in their craft when — according to the calendar of the ancient Maya civilisation of Central America — Armageddon comes on December 21.

We saw how hippies and New Age oddballs have thrown up makeshift camps in the shadow of the 4,040ft cloud-shrouded summit of the Pic de Bugarach in south-western France.

The mountain, with a network of deep caves, is thought to have inspired the Steven Spielberg movie Close Encounters Of The Third Kind and the classic novel Journey To The Centre Of The Earth.

 
(...)  

 

 

David, 30, who quit his telecoms job in the French city of Tours to live in a bus in a forest near Bugarach, told The Sun: “There are serious things going on here — I want to know what these objects are.

“These things exist and people have the right to know.”

David, who did not reveal his surname, was not fully convinced that the world will end on December 21 but said: “I do think the capitalist system is going to collapse then.”

Street artist and local children’s co-ordinator Alain Didier insisted he had seen UFOs.

Challenging French rural eco plumbing freaks out pilgrims to Bugarach apocalypse site funny satire story

Challenging French rural eco plumbing freaks out pilgrims to Bugarach apocalypse site funny satire story | Bugarach | Scoop.it
Aude, France - A camper van convoy heading south to the apocalyptic 2012 town of Bugarach is threatening to sue UK tour operators HippyWheels amid a gruelling three day experience of local extreme plumbing.

Treacherous wintry conditions saw the close-down of all tourist facilities sending 40 Yuletide travellers packed inside five souped-up Airstreams into unchartered rural territory.

The pilgrimage was to have arrived in the Bugarach UFO mothership base on Russian Christmas Day 7 January in preparation for the first of the year's full moon ceremonies.

But it ended up holed up in a dilapidated former campsite just south of Rennes-Les-Bains on the D14.

A fiendish configuration of mountains and dense forestry sees the ancient beauty spot untrammeled by wi-fi, cell phone signals or any form of organised electricity - something that the HippyWheels Winter 2011-12 catalogue failed to point out in its blurb.

Then late this evening a faint signal via a combination of carrier pigeon, morse code, semaphore and G-1 managed to transmit an SOS from stranded travelers to the Pyrenean mountain site.

Their plight chiefly concerns primitive conditions after onboard portaloos all froze up and/or caved in under unrelenting pressure during the stranding.

A diary entry retrieved from traveling tour guide Miss Sky Lotusblossom advises that 'at zero degrees on an ass-freezing January night the (only) open plan outdoor composting lav enjoys a panoramic 360-degree view of surrounding countryside and is the most sophisticated sanitation facility for 30 miles.'

Bugarach has become the epicenter of a worldwide apocalyptic movement claiming special sanctuary for all who shelter within a one mile radius of its extraordinary peak.

Last year its Mayor Jean-Pierre Delord threatened to call in the army if the influx of wacky-baccy Mayan 2012 apocalypse travelers continued to swamp the town's otherwise peaceful life.

Tales of how the late French President François Mitterrand had once been curiously 'heliported' on to the Bugarach outcrop's peak, of some mystery digs conducted by the Nazis and later Mossad have all culminated in creating the world's biggest magnet for Armageddon nutz.

The next scheduled UFO flypast near the Arc de Triomphe is this Friday the 13th of January.

2012: Will Bugarach and Los Angeles be spared?

2012: Will Bugarach and Los Angeles be spared? | Bugarach | Scoop.it
Bob Thiel
, LA Church History & End Prophecy Examiner
December 22, 2010

COGwriter

Last year Sony released its 2012 movie. Sony invited this Examiner to Century City (near Hollywood) to watch the press pre-release preview. The movie was number 1 when it first opened. It is did fantastically well in overseas markets like China (see Chinese Pleased With China’s Portrayal in Sony’s 2012 Movie, Indonesia Less So) and Russia (see 2012 a Hit in Russia).

The movie portrays Los Angeles, India, the Vatican, and other places being destroyed by a flood, two years from now. The main ones that survive, survive on what could best be described as flotilla of modern versions of Noah’s Ark.

 

Because the date of the start of the “Mayan flood” is two years from now, it is making the news again. There was something in the news yesterday about a village in France that many believe will survive 2012.

Notice the headline:

French village which will ‘survive 2012 Armageddon’ plagued by visitors

Telegraph - Dec 21, 2010 http://bit.ly/rUCVIV  


Essentially, since the area is isolated and some consider the village of Bugarach is in “sacred mountains”, the 189 residents there are concerned that thousands will descend upon it in about two years and overwhelm the local population. It has been getting a lot of visitors who are checking it out, just in case they wish to flee there.

Now, unless the French village is bombed or some major disaster strikes it, I believe it will survive December 21, 2012 and be fine on December 22, 2012 (though possibly a bit crowded). Yet, I believe that the same is true for Los Angeles, India, the Vatican, and other places that Sony’s 2012 movie shows will be destroyed by flood.

Why?

Because the world will not end in a flood (Genesis 9).

Now, in Sony’s defense, the movie it produced was based on one particular interpretation of a centuries old Mayan prophecy.

In the 16th century Mayan writing known as the Chilam Balam there is the following:

But when the law of the katun has run its course, the God will bring about a great deluge again which will be the end of the world. When this is over, then our Lord Jesus Christ will descend over the valley of Jehoshaphat beside the town of Jerusalem where he redeemed us with his holy blood (José Hoíl J, Roys R. The Book of Chilam Balam of Chumayel. Roys Publisher, 1933. Reprint Forgotten Books, 1967, p. 62).

Since the Mayan calendar ends when one of the katuns is finished (December 21, 2012), some interpret that the world will end in a flood that begins that date, and that presumably all we see by December 22, 2012 until most drown.

But notice that the particular Mayan prophecy, which by the way is the most explicit one about the world ending in a flood (prior to the 16th century the Mayans did not write, but essentially used a picture written communication system which 21st century scholars interpret in various ways), says that Jesus will return. As it turns out, the book that mentions Jesus the most, the Holy Bible, has this to say about a disasterous flood:

8 Then God spoke to Noah and to his sons with him, saying: 9 "And as for Me, behold, I establish My covenant with you and with your descendants after you, 10 and with every living creature that is with you: the birds, the cattle, and every beast of the earth with you, of all that go out of the ark, every beast of the earth. 11 Thus I establish My covenant with you: Never again shall all flesh be cut off by the waters of the flood; never again shall there be a flood to destroy the earth." (Genesis 9:8-11, NKJV)

So, no, the world as we know it will not be destroyed by December 22, 2012. Los Angeles residents do not need to live in fear that their county will be destroyed like the 2012 movie portrays. The Bible is clear that the world will not be destroyed by a flood.

However, it is likely that when the world does not end in a flood, that on December 22, 2012 scoffers will rise up and discount all prophecy. Because of misinterpretations of 2012 and certain media, hype, many will doubt Bible prophecy. Notice that the Apostle Peter warned about this:

1 Beloved, I now write to you this second epistle (in both of which I stir up your pure minds by way of reminder), 2 that you may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us, the apostles of the Lord and Savior, 3 knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, 4 and saying, "Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation." 5 For this they willfully forget: that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water, 6 by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water. 7 But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

8 But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 9 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.

10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up. 11 Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, 12 looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? (2 Peter 3:1-13)

So, no, we in Southern California do not need to go to French mountains to survive the end of the world and return of Jesus Christ on December 21/22, 2012. But yes Jesus will return and the world as we know it will end. But that will not be for a few years later. You do not need to go to France in two years, but please do not scoff at Bible prophecy, as it will come to pass.

Do Mayan/Hindu/Hopi/Buddhist/New Age/Nostradamus prophecies have any value here? Why might Satan have inspired this date? Does the Dresden codex show destruction of the earth by flood? Can the great tribulation start before 2012? How might Barack Obama be involved in 2012?

And since it was published, world events have aligned with at least 14 predictions in the book and many more will to come to pass. It clearly explains much of what will and will not happen in 2012 and the signs that believers need to be looking for.
