Euro Hippies' Apocalyptic Noah's Ark

By the Left Coast Rebel

Via the UK's The Independent:

A mountain looming over a French commune with a population of just 200 is being touted as a modern Noah's Ark when doomsday arrives – supposedly less than nine months from now. A rapidly increasing stream of New Age believers – or esoterics, as locals call them – have descended in their camper van-loads on the usually picturesque and tranquil Pyrenean village of Bugarach. They believe that when apocalypse strikes on 21 December this year, the aliens waiting in their spacecraft inside Pic de Bugarach will save all the humans near by and beam them off to the next age.As the cataclysmic date – which, according to eschatological beliefs and predicted astrological alignments, concludes a 5,125-year cycle in the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar – nears, the goings-on around the peak have become more bizarre and ritualistic.

Wow.  This group sounds way too similar to the Heaven's Gate cult here in San Diego and we all know how that ended.

  1. I bet they smoke a lot of Mary Jane the night before the big event. I wouldn't put these people in the same catagory as present day preppers, however. Wonder how the word got out this was the place to go on that world-ending day? I suspect it came from a smokey cloud of faux enlightenment.
