The Bible Found
Unharmed in the Middle of The Destruction of the Pentagon-Reported
to Be Truth! but Unproven!
of eRumor This brief email says that
an unharmed Bible was found in the midst of the wreckage of the
terrorist attack on the Pentagon and that anything around it or two
floors above it was not damaged..
This has gotten a lot of
attention in the email underground.
There was a book found unharmed on a stool in a second-story office
in the damaged portion of the Pentagon. A newspaper article
quoted a soldier as saying it was a Bible. There are other
reports from people who've seen pictures of the book on the stool
and who speculate that it was a dictionary. None of the
pictures of the book is close enough to tell what it is so, apart

"Yet, as he looked up into the black chasm torn into the symbol
of the mightiest military in the world, Williams saw a sign of hope.
On a second floor, right next to where the jet sheared off a section
of the building, was an undisturbed stool. And on it was a thick,
open book. Fellow searchers who had gotten a close look said it was
a Bible. It was not burned. Nor was anything around it or on the two
floors above it. 'I'm not as religious as some, but that would have
me thinking,' the soldier said. 'I just can't explain it.'"
Because of the level of interest in this story, TruthOrFiction.com
has tried to find some first-hand information from soldiers or
others who were on the scene. We have found other soldiers who
were told that the book was a Bible, but we've not found any who
actually saw it.
There are pictures of the book on the stool and we've viewed them,
but they are inconclusive. The book is large and it does not
seem that there would be a Bible of that size in a Pentagon office,
but that was the report from among soldiers on the evening of the
