New Zealand discloses Secret UFO X-Files
Two years from now, on Dec. 21, 2012, the world will end, assuming you believe the Mayan calendar.

The peak of Bugarach has been shrouded in mystery, with various claims that it houses aliens in cavities beneath the rock. the stories did show a superposition between various myths and locations around the mountain. The student furthermore added an overview of various fortuitous discoveries made on the site over the last two centuries: vestiges, testimonies, memories, reports, etc. The whole showed a strange correlation between certain mythical accounts, often related to legendary underground universes, and actual events that had been witnessed and reported.
