The  Mayans announced today that when the world ends on December 21, 2012 – France will survive!

Mayans predicted the end of the world – and they are convinced that they will be proved correct.  But WWN has learned that they also predicted that France will survive the apocalypse.


Mayan scholar, Dr. James Bellanca told WWN:  “It seems illogical that the world will end, but a single country will survive.  But what the Mayans have said is that the world – meaning all the humans – will vanish on December 21, 2012.  But, after carefully examining a recently unearthed tablet, it is clear that the Mayans predicted that anyone who is in France at the time of the Apocalypse – will survive.

This might explain why thousands of people are flocking to the  foothills of the Pyrenees, to a tiny village nestled amid breathtaking landscapes.

Bugarach … the place to spend Christmas this year?

Bugarach, with its two narrow streets, 176 residents, little agriculture, scores of wild orchids and virtually no pollution, was barely heard of a few years ago. Now, it’s arguably the most famous village in France, known variously as  “the village at the end of the world” or  “chosen village”, or “the doomsday destination”.

According to Mayan prophecy the sleepy village of Bugarach will be the capital of the new world, France.  The mayor, Jean-Pierre Delord, a farmer in his 60s, was the first to report the apocalyptic forecast about France. He mentioned it at a council meeting, suggesting special security measures, perhaps army logistics, to handle an influx of visitors in December 2012. Someone at the meeting told the local press and before long world news agencies and Japanese TV crews were pacing the cobbles asking baffled villagers their views on armageddon.

Bugarach peak, which some believe will be spared the apocalypse.

Some in Bugarach believe that an alien spaceship from Planet Zeeba will come on December 21, 2012 and save all the residents.  However, Dr. Bellanca told WWN that there will be no alien rescue of humans on the Mayan doomsday date.  “No, all of France will be saved.  No aliens will come to save the people of Bugarach.  But, the Mayans predicted that those people who are in Bugarach on that date, will be come the rulers of the new world.  So, if you want to be a King or a Queen in the new world – pack your bags for Bugarach.”


The French government is proud that they are the “chosen people” of the Mayans.  “We always knew we were special and this confirms it,” said former President Sarkozy.  “French people are much more evolved than any others on the planet.  This has been obvious for centuries.”
