France bans access to doomsday 'safe zone'

Those travelling to Pic de Bugarach before December 21st will now be turned away by authorities.

For many who believe that the world will end in about one month's time, a hilltop in the southwest of France represents the last hope of salvation against the upcoming apocalypse. French authorities however have other ideas - concerns over the disruption caused by visitors to the region has resulted in officials actively banning anyone from going there.

"We are expecting a few visionaries, a few people who believe in this end of the world, but in extremely limited numbers," said state representative Eric Freysselinard. "We are expecting greater numbers of people who are just curious, but in numbers we cannot determine. Above all, we are expecting lots of journalists."

Some believe that the hilltop at Pic de Bugarach will be the site of a rescue effort by an alien race who will send craft to pick up all those who are there on the day before the end of the world.

"France on Friday dashed the hopes of those who had planned to take refuge in one of the few places on Earth some believe will be spared when the world ends on December 21."

-facepalm- Maybe most of humanity does need to be wiped out Seriously, if it's the "end of the world" then no place is safe...not even a mountain in France. I wonder what all these Mayan Doomsday people are going to say the day after our supposed demise? They'll find some new date and make up a reason why it didn't happen. lol

Well, I First heard about 2012 back in 97' & I put my life on hold... Yeah, 15 years ago. A friend of a friend came in & was distraught, saying he was gutted that the world would end in 15 years... & here we are with sixteen days to go! wonder how he's coping? I know it's hard having to carry the burden of the coming apocalypse but I must say that I for one pity the fool, & myself as I too got suckered in. But perhaps there really is something catastrophic about to happen! I have been "prepping" for a while now, & I don't think any of us are ready for the possibility of an ... [More]

Here's the thing. How much of our lives should we spend contemplating the "end" of anything? I say none, nada, nitch. If an end comes, then that time is the only piece of time worth devoting to the event/s. People lose so much of their lives "worrying" over the future or stuck in "regrets" for past events - all that time their mind is busy with these worries and regrets is time that they are not engaged in actual living, So how much of your life is going to be devoted to an "apocolypse" and how will you feel years later when you find you can't have that wasted time back?

I know mate, Truer word were never said! I am one of those people & it is sad I know, But we've only got 12 days to save the earth!! My new years resolution is to start living again & stop worrying.. Trust me. Would be cool if Aliens landed though We'll see in less than two week's.. or we wont? Well, the odd day dream of high adventure / alien invasion is not quite the same as totally believing the world is gonna end is it? I'm betting you count your Kung Fu an equal to anything thrown away in your wishful thinking - we all do when it comes to the "hollywood" version of the apocalypse ... [More]

Unfortunately most people think the Mayans predicted the end of the world on Dec 21, 2012...They did not, the calendar looks like it ends and some other stuff, but nothing about "the world ending". Other philosophers have predicted a "Apocalypse" or "Revelation" without a specific and/or exact date...I do think those predictions are practical and we are getting closer to when those events where predicted to happen...and that is not the 21st of December of 2012...possibly between 2015 and 2050 more or less.

A friend of mines aunty and uncle have "fled to higher ground". Whereas others here in Australia have stocked up massive warehouses full of stuff to survive, apparently Nibiru is going to pass by too... If the world was actually going to end, there aint no mountain high enough, ain't no valley low enough, ain't no river wide enough, to keep you from getting killed.
