End Of World: French Village Ready For Doomsday
A tiny village in the Pyrenees has been sealed off as police try to prevent an invasion by those seeking salvation from a predicted apocalypse.
The jagged mountain which dwarfs Bugarach is said to contain aliens, who plan to board a spacecraft and flee the Earth before the end of the world.
There are those, admittedly in a minority, who believe the ETs may take some humans for the ride, allowing them to perpetuate humanity.
About 500 gendarmes have blocked roads and paths leading to the mountain to prevent an unsightly, or even dangerous, stampede.
Potholes in the mountain have also been sealed, to prevent anyone trying to find any alien life in its depths.
The mountain has long been imbued with mystical powers, so many in the village are sympathetic to new-age philosophies.
The local baker Dominic Lemmens told Sky News: "Many people from this village see something in the sky, but they won't speak (about it).
"I say, 'Did you see yesterday the light on the peak,' He says, 'No' - and I see an old guy from the village smile."
At a local cafe, the owner has stored dozens of clips of UFOs he said were spotted flying to and from the mountain.
Patrice Etienne believes it merits further investigation, but doubts whether today's prediction has anything to do with an alien shuttle bus.
He told me that the object could even be from another dimension.
"When we see the object go into the mountain it disappears. There is no door, no opening."
"A lot of people are coming back from the mountain saying they heard strange noises like an earthquake, or they had a problem with their camera or their mobile phone.
"So they don't know what it is."
The prediction of the Earth's imminent demise comes from the end today of the 13th baktun, a period in the Mayan civilisation's "long calendar", which lasts 392 solar years.
While some believe it signals a new beginning, others predict it will mean the end of days.
Sharing the same day as the winter solstice has led one in 10 people to worry about some sort of event, according to a Reuters worldwide poll.
In Bugarach they will be pleased when the invasion of accredited journalists finally leaves, whether it be on a plane, a spacecraft, or in a fiery meteor shower.

Matthew 24:36 "concerning that day and hour nobody knows,neither the angels of the heaven or the son,but only the father".people get a bible read the scriptures,the end of this system is coming,but the mayans or anyone else doesnt know when it is,only jehovah,study these things for yourself
Or you could not put your faith in the Hebrew desert God Jehovah/Yahweh. . . Why not try Lilith? First wife of Adam,Mother Nature herself? She's the Big Boss Momma. . .
Why on earth did "James" get the thumbs down. He was only giving his "version" of events. Look at his name for Heaven's sake.
The authorities should arrest all those loonies that turn up, and keep society safe. End of the world...... what a crock. There are some feeble minded idiots in this world, and i don't just mean our politicians.

Shaun been trying to find out if you are flooded again?
I'm not getting on any alien spaceship. . . Not unless its a D12 class Klingon Bird of Prey - filled with Klingon females looking for human males to enslave and dominate. . . Then I'll get my coat!
stevie you would NEVER move away from Shakespeare country would you? Not even for Klingon females :D
I lived in Prague for years when I was in my 20's and visit my Czech friends every year since. If I didn't have kids i'd go back and live there for good. Id take Prague over Shakespeare country everyday of the week, even if it is my homeland. Just for the women alone!
ha ha ha :D I've changed my mind about moving down to Shakespeare country now LOL
It has been an absolute pleasure to have been a member of human race instead of an atom on Moon .........enjoyed knowing vast majority of you, and for those few who have been a bit nuisance, I have already forgiven you (yes that includes all the people who gives me thumbs down and Shirley sutton).........Hopefully the next human version will be kinder, Gentler a more peaceful......the warmonger bug should be fixed..........otherwise............ Merry Christmas & Happy New Year for 2013..........
