Today’s date is 11.26.2012.

Not including today, our world has just another 25 days of existence.

As esoterics, quoting the Mayan Calendar, believe, on December 21, towards 11 in the morning, our World will cease to exist.

Mayan Calendar

However, one could survive this Apocalypse but only if one will be in the village of Bugarach which is in the Aude department of France.

Yet, just being in Bugarach won’t suffice.

No, you have to be on the spaceship which, from the beginning of time, has been waiting deep inside the 4,040 ft. high (1,231 meters)  Pic de Bugarach – Bugarach mountain peak –  to take the lucky few who would be able to reach it and scramble aboard this modern-day Noah’s Arc, up into the sky, to start a new world somewhere else, in another place or in another dimension.

I’ve written about Bugarach – population 189 and 503 miles (809 kilometers) southwest from Paris, here and here where you would be able to read all about Bugarach’s significance to esoteric and not only to esoteric folk but to those who believe there is more to life and death than meets the eye.

As you will read the mayor and inhabitants of Bugarach have been worried for some time about this date of December 21, 2012. They fear an influx of people hell-bent on not dying on this December day. Not only would they not be able to cope with thousands of visitors, but they also fear a Waco type mass suicide. A suicide of people who did not succeed in getting on to the spaceship and prefer rather to die at their own hand than in some terrible disaster – a flood or a fire. Or, a mass suicide of disappointed people: people who had looked forward to a new life in a better place, perhaps the paradise their faith made them believe would be theirs when their earthly life has ended, but there had been no ending and they were still on this planet of ours. And they still could not pay the bond on the house, or they still needed that operation for cancer, or they had to go back to that terrible job of theirs.

However, now Bugarach mayor Jean-Pierre Delord and the prefect of the region, Eric Freysselinard, 51, have clamped a ban on any “weirdos” to use the mayor’s description, from going anywhere near the Bugarach mountain.

The mayor said that the area is already “swarming with hippies, many of them naked, who drop litter and make a mess. This is no laughing matter. If 10,000 people turn up on December 21, our village will not be able to cope.”

Backed by Prefect Freysselinard, the area will now be closed off by a force of over 200 gendarmes (militarized police) and firemen which includes 11 gendarmes from the elite “mountain squadron”. The men will be in place from Monday, December 17 and until at least three days after Friday, December 21.

So, will this world still be around at nightfall on December 21?

That’s the question, but do know that this Doomsday prediction is the 183rd in the last 2000 years.

Is there a spaceship waiting deep inside the mountain peak to take a lucky few off to a New World …?



The inhabitants of Bugarach say they can’t take it anymore.

Thousands … tens of thousands … millions maybe … want to be in Bugarach when the clock strikes midnight this night, but the 198 who call the village ‘home’ want to get away from it. Far away from it.

Mayor Jean-Pierre Delord, in trying to keep the villagers calm told them on Wednesday that they should relax, should take it easy and that there was nothing to worry about because by Saturday, December 22, it will all be over.

Well, what he meant was that on Saturday morning, a weak winter sun caressing the Bugarach mountain peak, the world will still be in existence, and the visitors – the tourists, the pilgrims and the journalists  (there are easily one for each visitor) – would have gone back to their own homes and countries, and their village will once again be the tranquil haven as before.

Alas, some of the visitors interpreted Mayor Delord’s words differently and it was confirmation to them that the world was indeed going to come to an end on Friday.

One of them, a young man with long dark hair and in a long dark robe, wind and hair blowing in the mountain breeze, began to chant, “I know the Lord’s coming! The Lord’s coming! The Lord’s coming! Hallelujah!”

How he got into the village no one knew because 100 gendarmes either on foot, on motorcycles, in trucks and jeeps, have cordoned off the village and the Pic (mountain peak) and only villagers equipped with a pass have been allowed across the gendarmes’ barriers. Helicopters flying overhead are further ensuring that no one climbs over a hedge or swims through a stream to get to the mountain peak.

As villagers told this morning’s Le Parisien newspaper their mayor is exhausted.

Said one: “You know, he’s been getting phone calls every night from weirdoes asking him if he does not have a bunker they can rent.”

The villagers do not only find the ‘weirdoes’ annoying but so too the journalists. They complain that the moment they step outside, a journalist sticks a microphone into their face and a camera flashes.

“I wish,” said one aged villager to Le Parisien, “that it is going to start snowing and that a meter of snow will fall so that no one will be able to get here.”

Tranquil haven said someone.

Perhaps haven was not a good word to use.

Anyway … we’ll speak again on Saturday …

According to Roman Catholic tradition, Mary Magdalene, after fleeing persecution by leaving Jerusalem, eventually spent the last 20 odd years of her life in prayer and meditation, in the Sainte-Baume mountains of Southern France, after reaching shore at Saintes-Maries-de-la-mer. This chain of red peaks, then circled by deep native forest, was considered a fearful holy sanctuary. To the extent that Roman soldiers under Caesar’s command reportedly dared not enter it before a local sovereign had broken the spell by leading their way.
There, according to legend, she used as a shelter one of many inaccessible grottos (Baume stands for the Provencal dialect “bomo”, grotto) wherefrom a flock of angels would daily pick her up and airlift her to the hovering Saint Pilon (peak), on which she could receive God’s grace from her former companion Jesus.
Upon her death, her remains, enclosed in a precious silver shrine, were eventually preserved within a basilica it took about two centuries to erect, due to contingencies of the site. Later, in the Middle Ages, scavengers looted the whole scene, and her severed relics ended up scattered to a number of destinations, including Bugarach.

Now, recently (April 2011), the alleged murderer of his whole family, Xavier Dupont de Ligonnès, was apparently last located leaving a cheap motel in the vicinity, and heading for a hike, with only a small backpack, towards that grotto. Is this a coincidence, as he was known as a Christian fundamentalist? Or did he fall prey to some elaborate criminal scam? He was later nowhere to be seen.
Even though his body hasn’t been recovered, the official theory offered by the investigating team (yes, Gendarmerie) suggests that, unless he managed to emigrate stealthily to some remote part of the world, he may have committed suicide there, bringing justice to himself. They’re even doing further searches right now to recover the body. But that could hardly explain why he travelled around for over a week before disappearing, nor why he would take £ 200,000 worth of family jewelry (now missing) with him to take his own life. One might think the prosecutor in charge and the one responsible for the Chevaline murders investigation must be former alumni: their statements to the media are, word for word, strictly identical: “we need to close all the doors, no option has been ruled out yet, it may take up to 10 years to solve such a case, but 60 detectives are full-time on it”.
Another multiple murder case where we may wonder whether reports do not get muddled sometimes. Was there a “meeting” at Sainte-Baume, just like at Martinet, and what kind? “Ask the angels”, as Patti Smith used to sing. I guess I like Patti Smith.

Thank you for this very interesting comment.

re: Mary Magdalene: There are paintings and sculptures in the church at Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer of the Magdala which shows a small boat beside or behind her. It is interpreted that it refers to the small boat on which she and the children she had with Jesus, and the Holy Virgin, had sailed to France. I’ve not been to Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer or to Bugarach for that matter, but once December 21 has come and gone, I want to go there.

re: Xavier Dupont de Ligonnès.

Indeed this is a story as interesting as that of the Chevaline shootings, but as it is not international, it has received little interest outside France. I am now though interest in it, thanks to you,and tomorrow I will start to research it.

12-3-2012 at 17:29:09

I bet you’ll also find that case of interest. If you do, i’ll let you know what specific clues caught my attention.

12-3-2012 at 20:32:16

Tiens, tiens, Eugène Masse!

Alexander Cartier, 27/11/12, 18h32:

“French prosecutors seem to pass the same rhetoric classes.”

Eugène Masse, 3/12/12, 16h25:

“One might think the prosecutor in charge and the one responsible for the Chevaline murders investigation must be former alumni.”


On the other hand, the Nantes prosecutor, at least in this


article, did *only* mention closing doors.

12-3-2012 at 21:40:48

The church at Rennes le Chateau supposedly where the Holy Graal rested, was this not a fake by a couple of Frenchmen, can’t recall the whole story.

Suggestions are the Holy Grail lies in the bloodline from Christ, Sangraal.

I have read that scholars believe Christ didn’t die on the cross, was tended to by his doctor and left the tomb to live a long life, no doubt with his wife Mary Magdelene.

There are many links to this story, I’ll choose this one:

and this one:

Haven’t been to either yet, on the list with the cave paintings near Bordeaux.

To Eugene, my late Aunt was a regular visitor to Lourdes, her life was very difficult, she was committed to the Catholic Religion and thought nothing of giving money she could ill afford to such adventures.

Someone else I am familiar with is a Buddist, but doesn’t go along with the Dalai Lama, she sends some 1,000 Euros a month to another sect, keeps herself and home without trimmings. She had a tragedy in her life some 30 years ago, has always been described as ethereal, has children and grandchildren, I can’t comprehend such ‘faith’, it certainly makes her feel special and chosen.

12-4-2012 at 09:11:44

@Lynda, @Alexander, @Eugene

Now we are talking!! Speak of the paranormal and I am there. Studied dozens of books about it.

I too believe that Jesus and Mary Magdalene were husband and wife and that she and Jesus’s mother came to France. This is of course blasphemous in the eyes of the devout. Well. Well. Well.

Alexander, you have a keen eye for detail. ‘Closing doors’ does it not say the same as ‘do not know’.

Eugene, I am interested. And how! Will contact you about it today.

12-4-2012 at 10:48:29

Agreed. As the saying goes, “Great minds think alike.. And fools rarely differ.”
Applied to prosecutors, that is.
The Nantes story certainly sounds very bizzare to me, for lots of reasons.
Closing doors? You definitely have to at one point. Meanwhile, in the Dupont de Ligonnes case, there are several that have been left wide open all along the investigation..

@Marilyn Z.

Wonderful writing and truly linked all possible geo sources for such a great event. Although I don’t believe in flying objects, I’m already sort of floating on a cloud by positive energy beamed by esoterics near black (upside-down) mountain. A chance to escape the Mayan apocalypse: the council has received letters more sinister and a postcard announcement of “a human sacrifice in the woods.”

Bugarach: the French village destined to survive the Mayan apocalypse

Whatever its origins, the Bugarach prophecy has implanted itself in France’s collective consciousness. Nicolas D’Estienne d’Orves, a novelist and opera critic for Le Figaro, released a book on it last week, The Village of the End of the World . A documentary on the life of villagers, The World Stops at Bugarach, will air on French TV, fittingly, on 20 December.

D’Estienne d’Orves says it was “impossible” to get to the bottom of the genesis of the Mayan Bugarach rumour. “It was grabbed on to because this is a place where there’s nothing, so you can easily project your fantasies on to it. It’s like filling a balloon with air,” he says. His book includes the letters received by Bugarach’s mayor over the past two years of apocalypse frenzy, including one well-wisher proposing to organise “The Bugarach music festival: a new world beginning for humanity” to coincide with the end of the world, in which he promised to get together Peter Gabriel, Pink Floyd, Paul McCartney, Paul Simon, Led Zeppelin, Jean Michel Jarre and the Black Eyed Peas.

Of course, understanding cu.rt. of 13 and pentagram explains all and convinces the ancient Celts amongst us. LOL

12-4-2012 at 12:21:40


Thanks for the links. I find all so interesting. Perhaps it is because I believe that there is more to life and death than meets the eye.

The title ‘The World Stops at Bugarach’ must have been inspired by ‘Christ Stopped at Eboli’ by Carlo Levi. A wonderful book if you have not read it and have time to do so.

I am thinking of this for a title for a future article ‘God did not stop at Bugarach’.

I have two guests coming for dinner on December 21. One of them said to me: “If there is still a world”.

I think there will be, but I will have a moment of deep thought, no doubt, around 11 a.m. on the 21st.

12-4-2012 at 16:21:10

I’m glad the aristocrat used a familiar caliber for such a massacre: a .22 rifle!

He had a mistress in Paris who fears for her life and another former friend Colette Deromme has disappeared in the village of Lorgues.

… the devout Catholic had a mistress living in the Val d’Oise department in Central France. Body discovered in Var: another victim of Dupont de Ligonnés?

12-4-2012 at 18:36:47

What would Burt Bacharach have said?


There’s also the film “Christ stopped at Eboli”!

12-6-2012 at 21:16:32

What did you think? You bet, I would certainly not eat horse meat, even though I know some people who do here and I respect their taste. But I like Walt Disney too much.
They only closed the last slaughterhouses in the States a few years ago, but I think there are still a few in the UK, and then it’s sold in France as a delicacy. Eating “chevaline” can also be some kind of a revenge somehow, like: http://theoatmeal.com/story/eat_horses
Nice pictures of yours though. I always thought the 13th arrondissement was only for Chinese food? On top of that I’m sick with stomach flu right now, so I survive on mash and chicken soup. Will resume contributions to your threads this weekend I guess.

12-13-2012 at 23:34:12

Daily Mail being helpful as usual :

@Marilyn, if you have French rolling news, BFMTV, iTELE, then you’ll know that the region is under siege. I do hope they have someone able to turn this into a positive, then again, will it matter ?

And that is the point, the world will end for all of us at some point, for many it is right now………..pfff !

I do not agree with my husband, he says ‘ If there is a mystery to life, then there must be a mystery to death’ – so we have agreed to knock twice when we get the other side, just to let the the other know.

Necredinta, frica, disperare, haos, sunt doar cateva dintre starile si sentimentele care ii caracterizeaza pe cei mai multi oameni in aceasta perioada de timp, nu intamplator denumita in Scriptura ca fiind cea a “ZILELOR DIN URMA”. Aceasta psihoza mediatica ce a cuprins intreaga planeta in momentul actual scoate la iveala cel mai evident lucru prevestit de Biblie, si anume: NECREDINTA SI NEPUTINTA OMULUI DE A SE INCREDE CU ADEVARAT IN DUMNEZEU!

Istoria omenirii a cunoscut prevestiri de tot felul privind un eventual “sfarsit al lumii”, insa oamenii nu au invatat nimic din toate aceste SEMNE FALSE si AMAGIRI prin care satan isi deruleaza cea mai mare lucrare de ratacire a omului. Biblia – Cuvantul lui Dumnezeu – reprezinta singurul loc in care se arata celor ce au “ochi si urechi de auzit” ca sfarsitul tuturor lucrurilor si implicit a intregului sistem format din MATERIE, TIMP si SPATIU nu va imbraca forma descrisa de mintea umana.

Anul 2012, calendarul Maya, civilizatia mayasa, si toate celelalte nascociri cu caracter apocaliptic, menite a-l aduce pe omul fara credinta la apogeul disperarii nu au nici un fundament biblic si, in mod evident, reprezinta o MINCIUNA si UN FALS dovedite prin Cuvantul lui Dumnezeu. Din nefericire, cea mai mare parte a omenirii, prin aportul sustinut al stiintei, cultelor religioase si al mass mediei, a cazut in aceasta capcana mediatica fara precedent. Marturie stau numeroasele exemple, surprinse pe intreg mapamondul, in care oameni apartinand tuturor categoriilor sociale si-au parasit locurile de munca, au renuntat la bani, la locuinte, unii chiar la familie, refugiindu-se in natura, cat mai departe de aglomeratiile urbane, construindu-si tot felul de adaposturi si buncare care sa ii salveze de la un posibil dezastru.

Very interesting, I am however not sure that it will be the end of the world. But I am sure it is good for business in Bugarach! So yes I will read your update on the 22 Dec 2012.

Matthew 24:36 (King James version)
But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels in heaven, but my Father only.
NIV translation:
No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.

Just watched an interesting programme The Mayan Apocalypse 2012, produced by Channel 4.

Too many years ago to recount, I read Chariots of the Gods and The Gold of the Gods, both left me with more questions than answers.
