From the page: A bomb that should have leveled a building somehow spared 167 innocent people that stood unprotected in the same room. Did God send down angels to protect them? Were they protected by the loving spirits of relatives? Or was it just a case of blind luck that only the hostage takers met there end on that day?
The only thing that can be said for certainty is that - through divine will or incredible chance - Cokeville was the sight of a miracle.
What's up with guardian angels? they guard you until...they don't? What about all the children who DO perish? And why is a bomb that didn't kill anyone, didn't even blow the roof off the fucking ceiling, a "miracle" instead of just a poorly made bomb?
The Miracle of Cokeville
Cokeville Wyoming was the sight of a parent's worst nightmare on May 16th, 1986 when a mentally disturbed man and his wife entered an elementary school with guns and a homemade gasoline bomb.
The man's name was David Young, a former town marshal. He had been the tiny's towns only police officer in six months during 1979 and when he was fired, he moved to Tucson, Arizona. He and his wife returned to Cokeville in 1986 and carried out their insidious plan. Young had a manifesto called "Zero-Infiniti" and proclaimed "this is a revolution!" as he and his wife took an entire generation - over 160 children and teachers - hostage and wouldn't release them until he was given 300 million dollars and a personal phone call from the President of the United States.

Bomb malfunctioned, 70 casualties, no "miracle".
So apparently everyone who died in Columbine or 9/11 deserved to die or didn't have relatives who loved them enough to say them?
Cthulu protect us.
im not christian or any religion. but i liked it.
really miracles do happen even if your not christian, islamic or watever.
This site is interesting overall but this page is ruined by the rant at the end. Seriously, what was the point in adding that?
Thumbs down due to the extremist, aggressive, angry rant at the bottom of the page. Was an interesting read up until the part the author felt the need to attack everyone who disagreed with him in some manor.
 Although to be fair to the author, the mark on the wall does look like something otherworldly-- Cthulhu
I wouldn't have said anything if not for that addition at the end but...
From the page: "All of these stories may seem like a child's fancy had it not been for the miraculous survival of everyone in the room."
You've got two very easy ways to read this sentence. The one I got was something like "I'm only blinding myself to my usual BS filters because this sounds spectacular and I want a miracle to believe in."
As for anonymity, well, I use it more to keep mass mailed adverts out of my mailbox more than anything. If you really want my identity so that you can presumably launch attacks on my character and try to get my community to shun me you only need to ask.
People actually taking time out of your lives to refute this: go play outside.
"Crap Factory" is correct.
Yes, it's a fascinating story. No, it's not proof of anything metaphysical. "Mystery?" Hardly.
"Bomb experts called out to the scene were stunned."
The information I found says: "only one of the bomb's five blasting caps went off. According to investigators at the time, if the bomb had functioned properly, it would have blown off the side of the building" Yeah. As in, that would most likely be why they weren't more seriously injured, not because of "angels". No mention in any of the printed articles about baffled authorities.
"Never once did I attribute the children's survival to God or angels, I merely reported the facts and the eyewitness accounts and invited readers to make up their own minds."
The article is clearly presented from a heavily biased point of view. You presented some of the facts, and not even very well.
For instance, you forgot things like (as a TIME Magazine blog recounts) "It seared young faces with flash burns and ignited clothes. Reeling teachers shoved children through the blown-out windows onto the grass outside, where they lay screaming and shivering with shock as their parents fought through police lines to reach them. Some 70 people were later hospitalized; at least one child had burns over 50% of his body." Maybe the angels didn't like him as much. Oh well.
Above all, don't be getting all righteous and put out because people on the internets don't agree with something that boils down to your faith (which, by definition, is something that defies provability). It's especially ridicule-worthy when it's plainly obvious what you believe, and yet you purport to be neutral -- that's just intellectual dishonesty.
P.S., I'm not, as the page says, under a "shroud of protected anonymity"; this username is my real full name, and I link in my SU profile to my external website with further real life information about me. Imagine!
