>>Doomsday 2012: Thousands Queue For UFO Rescue At Pic de Bugarach
>>By JohnThomas Didymus

>>Bugarach - Thousands of "New Agers" are flocking to the village
>>of Bugarach in France to prepare for the end of the world on
>>December 21. The people are expecting that aliens will come to
>>save them from doomsday apocalypse by beaming them aboard their
>>spaceships.

>>UFO cults and the mystery of Pic de Bugarach

>I would guess the Heaven's Gate episode is not resonating with
>these "New Agers". Or, maybe there are people looking for a
>year long vacation in a very nice part of France.

>I can't believe that history is repeating itself so soon after
>the group suicide of people with the same belief system -
>i.e., the "aliens are coming to save us". Or, that there are
>large groups of people who sincerely believe they will be
>rescued by ETs. Has anybody researched this idea?


'When Prophecy Fails is a 1956 classic book in social psychology by
Leon Festinger, Henry Riecken, and Stanley Schachter about a UFO
religion that believes the end of the world is at hand.'
