Il paesino di Bugarach, alle pendici dei Pirenei francesi, sarà l'unico luogo a sopravvivere alla fine del mondo, prevista dal calendario Maya a dicembre del 2012: almeno secondo esperti di esoterismo, che già conoscono il luogo perchè la montagna che lo sovrasta è sede di eventi paranormali, e il paese è da tempo diventato rifugio dei cercatori di Ufo. La profezia secondo cui Bugarach è eletto a scampare all'Apocalisse spaventa le autorità: il sindaco Jean Pierre Delord, in carica da 34 anni, teme l'invasione di chi cerca la salvezza.
"Il pericolo è che se l'evento viene preso sottogamba dalle autorità, potremmo trovarci con 5-10-20mila persone, in completa anarchia, e non saremo capaci di affrontarlo. Se la gente poi scalerà la montagna in dicembre può essere pericoloso e a rischio incidenti".Per ora le temute orde di visitatori non si sono viste e gli stessi abitanti sembrano sminuire la portata di luci e fenomeni misteriosi associati alla montagna.
"Anche io ho assistito a cose che non so spiegare, ma non abbiamo il monopolio del paranormale: succede anche in altre parti del mondo".
L'effetto dell'allarme del sindaco, per ora, è stato lo schieramento in forze di militari lungo le strade locali e le colline: le autorità governative hanno annunciato che bloccheranno l'accesso alla montagna per motivi di sicurezza pubblica. Una delusione che accomuna appassionati di Ufo e scettici: per tornare alla normalità bisognerà aspettare il giorno dopo la fine del mondo. Sempre che arrivi.
Amazing footage of an UFO over the mountain Pic de Bugarach in France, March 28, 2012. A German hiker and a Spanish Mountain Group captured this video of this UFO / OVNI on top of the mountain. Do you really think there are Aliens in that mountain?? Hmm??
The tiny southern French hamlet of Bugarach is at the mercy of scams from droves of visitors who believe it is the only place in the world that will survive a 2012 apocalypse. A French government watchdog, which monitors sects, said the picturesque village should be monitored until December 21, 2012, when many believe the world will end, according to an ancient Mayan prophecy. Surrounded in legend for centuries, Bugarach and its rocky outcrop, the Pic de Bugarach, have attracted an influx of New Age visitors in recent months, pushing up property prices but also raising the threat of financial scams and psychological manipulation, the watchdog, known as Miviludes, said in a report published this week.
"I think we need to be careful. We shouldn't get paranoid, but when you see what happened at Waco in the United States, we know this kind of thinking can influence vulnerable people," the watchdog's president Georges Fenech said. Waco, Texas, made headlines in 1993 when federal agents raided the headquarters of the Branch Davidian movement, led by David Koresh, leading to a 50-day siege. The building was burnt down when agents eventually tried to force their way in, leaving about 80 people dead.
Bugarach, with a population of just 200, has long been considered magical, partly due to what locals claim is an "upside-down mountain" where the top layers of rock are older than the lower ones. The internet is awash with myths about the place - that the mountain is surrounded by a magnetic force, that it is the site of a concealed alien base, or even that it contains an underground access to another world. And now many have seized on it as the ultimate refuge with Doomsday rapidly approaching. Alerted to an influx of visitors by the mayor of Bugarach, Fenech said he recently visited the area, and found six settlements in the surrounding countryside set up by members of the American Ramtha School of Enlightenment. Other "gurus" and messianic groups have been organising fee-paying conferences at local hotels, Fenech said. "This is big business," he said. Aside from the risks in Bugarach, the Miviludes report also warned of the danger of increased activity by apocalyptic groups across France in the run-up to 2012, particularly in the wake of recent disasters that could be interpreted as omens. Climate and environmental fears, anxiety over pandemics after the 2009 swine flu outbreak, and the earthquake disaster in Japan are all reinforcing the idea of the Mayan calendar, Fenech said. Among the groups highlighted in the report, the Ramtha movement is said to be focusing on south-western France to spread its message, the report said. Founded by J.Z. Knight, the group claims to follow the mystic teachings of Ramtha, a Lemurean warrior who fought the residents of the mythical Atlantis 35,000 years ago, and is said to have discovered the secret of immortality. Other groups being watched include the Raelians, founded by a former sports-car journalist who claims to have had repeated encounters with aliens. The report says its aim is not to stigmatise movements but to inform the public about "groups or individuals whose doctrine or discourse follows an 'end-of-world' theory". A law was passed in France in 2001 making it an offence to abuse vulnerable people using heavy pressure techniques, meaning sects can be outlawed if there is evidence of fraud or abuse. American televangelist Harold Camping predicted the end of the world on May 21 this year. However, the date passed uneventfully. Camping revised his prophecy and now says that Judgment Day will come on October 21. Reuters
