    And thus the Spires of the decivers tempels will fall and people will be one step closer to reincarnate more honest older gods.
    ..seriously though ,such a shame on a old building as its a 'mummie' showing what construction methods was used at that time , but its also a good example why you never should skip on the maintance..regular frequvent maintance often is the sort with the least risk of accidents...turning into catastrophies.
    sort of reminds me though on how much many of the far far older remnants of civilization sufferd in the middle east and africa due to the last centuries of unstable politics there :/

      plumps talk though..urgh..so pointlessly plump.... yes a historical building , but hardly the greatest treasure in the world I saytheres no 'greatest' there are many 'great' ones..but no 'greatest' ...or would anyone dare to try and argue wich hade most vaule...pyramids....buhddist tempels..or christian tempels ? after all they all are inffused with historical vaule byond measure.
      wich includes being reminders of negative stuff aswell..for he whom is blind to history ,is doomed to repeat it.

    I'm glad this IDOL has been burnt down ! Praise God ! People need to worship the true GOD of heaven rather than some temporary & PROUD man made architectural IDOL.

      +GeekGamerGuy81 There are no dots to connect. I don't ADVOCATE burning down buildings. I'm simply pleased it has happened because it's hopefully showing people that buildings are only temporary LIFELESS stones, mortar, wood and paint. I find it amazing people mourn so much over lifeless structures that can do NOTHING. The only ETERNAL things are HEAVEN, HELL, GOD, and PEOPLE. Focus in these things, rather structures that really just symbolise mans PRIDE. Perhaps this fire was to HUMBLE some people, who think such man made buildings are timeless - well this shows - they are NOT.

      +Brad Disen Hitler was telling people to burn anything and everything that disagreed with the philosophy that he espoused. You just advocated the burning of a historic landmark because if offended your beliefs. I'll let you connect the rest of the dots.

    I heard Notre Dame was built by a satanic person called "2 horns" in French that sold his soul to the devil. Also every person entering that building will get possesd. It's confirmed. The satanic satututes surrounding the building are inhabited by demons/jinns. They watch every person entering the building.

      The most that we can be sure of is that the Cathedral deserves all the love she can be given. To whatever conclusions and answers that get drawn from her as the inspections continue, will most hopefully become justified by the thorough and certain revival she will receive. 🙏🏼

      +Jonathan Mahoney Yes I am aware of the facts, hence my post - They do NOT know what caused yet have categorically ruled out any deliberate/terror related cause before one inspector had set foot in the cathedral. And I quote -
      'The Paris prosecutor's office said it was treating the fire as an accident, ruling out arson and possible terror-related motives'

      An investigation of this magnitude usually takes months to conclude, so like I said incredibly fast detective work on their part, but thanks for your valid input.

      An expert explained that the way of building at the time allows for fire to propagate in hidden spaces, e.g. a space between the outer metal roof and the inner wooden roof, and remain unnoticed. Also the framework was made of 1300 very dry oak trees, so once set ablaze nothing could stop it.
