An estimated 20,000 New Age believers who say the "upside down" mountain in France is home to aliens who will rescue them from an impending end of the world that will take place on December 21, 2012. They have saturated a small French commune near the foot of the picturesque Pic de Bugarach. They believe a race of alien beings that will emerge to rescue the gathered humans and transport them to a new civilization. The French government is concerned about mass suicides taking place in advance of the December 21 date. The government is expecting another 80,000 members of the cult to arrive over the next few months.
