UFO cult: aliens inside French mountain will save us from 2012 apocalypse

6 years ago641 views

Members of a New Age cult believe aliens hiding inside a mountain in France will save them from the December 21, 2012 Mayan apocalypse.

Throngs of pilgrims have already descended upon a small village in southwest France to hike the Pic de Bugarach, where they say a UFO is buried. The ship will supposedly ferry them to safety on doomsday, which will occur at the end of this year according to an interpretation of the ancient Mayan calendar.

The mountain is attracting a wide variety of fringe believers. French watchdog group Miviludes reports that members of Ramtha's School of Enlightenment have set up camp in the area. Founded by J.Z. Knight, the group studies the teachings of a mythical warrior named Ramtha who supposedly slayed the people of Atlantis.

Though it may seem laughable, the situation could quickly become dangerous. It is estimated that the village of Bugarach's population will surge from 200 to 100,000 as December 21 nears, and local officials fear there could be mass suicides as with past UFO cults.
