For those who thought that the "hippies" disappeared in the 1970s comes this story from the UK publication "The Independent" titled "Hippies head for Noah’s Ark: Queue here for rescue aboard alien spaceship."

According to the article:

"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."

For decades, there has been a belief that Pic de Bugarach, which, at 1,230 metres, is the highest in the Corbières mountain range, possesses an eery power. Often called the "upside-down mountain" – geologists think that it exploded after its formation and the top landed the wrong way up – it is thought to have inspired Jules Verne's Journey to the Centre of the Earth and Steven Spielberg's Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Since the 1960s, it has attracted New Agers, who insist that it emits special magnetic waves.

Further, rumours persist that the country's late president François Mitterrand was transported by helicopter on to the peak, while the Nazis, and, later, Israel's Mossad, performed mysterious digs there. Now the nearby village is awash with New Agers, who have boosted the local economy, though their naked group climbs up to the peak have raised concerns as well as eyebrows. Among other oddities, some hikers have been spotted scaling the mountain carrying a ball with a golden ring, strung together by a single thread."

So whether you're "a true believer," a "hippie," or just someone who is concerned about the happenings on December 21st, it looks like France might be an interesting place to visit during the upcoming months.

Interesting story, Chief. I wonder if the estimated 100,000 people will actually go there by December 21st.

I don't know, but if so then Monsieur Delord will have to pony up a boatload of wine and cheese for the party on December 22nd.

(That's as opposed to the "whine and cheese" we see on this here blog site every day.....)

This is interesting. You know it will be interesting to observe just what does take place on the 22nd of December.

Frankly at this stage I don't think anything will surprise me.

We have already been witness to so very much change.

I hope it's not the "ultimate" change - but then again remember all the hoopla surrounding Y2K. That came and went, and the only one to experience "the end of the world" shortly therafter was Al Gore.

Ya gotta wonder what goes through the minds of people the day after the shabang goes down. You would think that maybe it would be time to actaully start preparing for the future, not the final rekoning. Remember, its not how fast you get there, it is how you go. The buisnessman in me wants to get shirts made that say " I survived the end of the world and all I got was this crummy t-shirt" for the 22nd. Things like tis really illustate how fragile the human condition is.

Yes - the end of the world has been at hand for thousands of years. Here Smithsonian.com lists 10 predicted "doomsdays" that never happened:
