Kooks Converge on France’s Mount Moonbat

Great news: aliens are coming to take some moonbats off our hands — or at least, that’s what the moonbats believe.

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.

As the cataclysmic date — which, according to eschatological beliefs and predicted astrological alignments, concludes a 5,125-year cycle in the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar — nears, the goings-on around the peak have become more bizarre and ritualistic. …

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.

As many as 100,000 kooks are planning a trip to Mount Moonbat. They won’t be the only ones who will be disappointed if the aliens don’t transport them to someplace far away.

    Careful… making fun of people who believe in a magic force in the sky might get you in trouble around these parts…

  2. cmon people says:

    (for the record, i just checked your back catalog… not a word about the religious dumbasses who thought the world was gonna end back in May 2011. Why didn’t you make fun of those retards, too? Oh riiiight…because you are all intellectually dishonest, and only complain and/or deride people from the “other team”. Nothing like a paper trail to prove your inability to function as an adult member of society… )

    cmon – I’m surprised there’s wifi up there on the mountaintop.

    They ought to get together with the folks at the big “Woodstock for Fools” shindig. All confused minds ought to be in one, easy-to-maintain place.

    They make the Heaven’s Gate Castration Comet Club members look almost sane.

    Mount Moonbat… in the village of Booger… what?

    Remember the “harmonic convergence”? When everybody went up on a hilltop and hummed? It doesn’t seem like THAT worked; maybe this one will 😉

    Very fitting words for you to swallow and digest clown. I see you still haven’t received your bitch slap yet.

    Anyone who put their faith in Harold Camping’s predictions was an idiot. Feel better?

    Believing in magical forces in the sky? Sounds like nature worship to me. Are there any nature worshiping conservative minded people out there who follow this blog?

    “cmon people says: March 27, 2012 at 10:35 am”

    It was mentioned, yawned and laughed at and forgotten.

    The thing is, they were NOT “religious” per se, they were simply GULLABLE dopes DESPERATLY looking for something to “believe” in; much like regressives such as yourself.

  12. James McEnanly says:

    I doubt the sanity of anyone who decides to go mountain climbing in the nude in late December.The mountain looks like it would be a challenge for an experienced climber in the best of conditions.

  13. whotothewhat says:

    It would be great if someone could create a A self-fulfilling prophecy for the whack jobs and nuke it.

  14. Jimbo says:

    When they all get there, put up a fence and don’t let them out.

  15. dapenguin says:

    no no no, not a mountain, y’all are supposed to meet inside an active volcano, that is where you will be picked up

  16. AC says:

    They’re going to need several tanker trucks of Kool-Aid to get that party started.

    Or ended.

  17. Jodie says:

    The Bible says that God created Mankind in His own image. New Agers have twisted that and say that MAN created God in his image and that they are all their own gods.

    But, in reality:

    “25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.”

    Romans 1:25
    New International Version (NIV)

  18. Gordy says:

    Jodie, don’t forget verse 22: “Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.”

  19. Adam says:

    cmon, Harold Camping’s group that believed the Rapture would occur last May were a very small, ultra- lunatic- fringe group that next to nobody actually believed. That period was my senior year at a theological seminary (I myself am an aspiring minister), I was interacting with a heck of a lot of people who espoused all manner of Christian theological disciplines and doctrines, and yet I never personally came across a single one of them that believed in Camping’s “Prophecy.” They all dismissed him as a charlatan, as did I. In fact, to believe Camping was correct (Even before he was disproven) would go contrary to what is taught in the Bible, for two reasons:
    1. Jesus Himself specifically said that no man can know what day or hour He will return to Earth before it actually happens. Camping claimed to know both, so thus he contradicted Jesus’s words.
    2. Camping had many years earlier claimed the Rapture would occur in 1994. That obviously didn’t come true. There is a passage in the Old Testament which says that if anyone claiming to be a “Prophet” makes a single prediction that doesn’t come true, that person is a false prophet and thus one shouldn’t listen to him.
    As for why we’re bringing up these freaks here and yet we never made any articles about Camping, keep in mind that the whole purpose of this website is to document the more insane fringe elements of the far left. Camping’s false prophecies did not fall into that category, so thus they were not mentioned.

    The people involved in this story are just ridiculous dopes who go along with these freaky “New Age” type religions so they can feel “Spiritual” without having to worry about those icky judgments on their personal behavior/ lifestyles that can be found in mainstream religions.

    Has anyone seen Lao lately? I guess this explains it.
