    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 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.

      @GeekGamerGuy81 Oh really, so Hitler was telling people to worship the God of the Bible rather than worshipping idols? Never heard of that before.....

      You just made the same argument that the Nazi's made when they starting burning books that disagreed with their racist, fascist, ideology.

    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.

      @secrets I never said you did. I used Africa as an example because it is an area which many starving people that is foreign. It's an example of why transferring just 300 million dollars won't help.

      Billions of dollars have been donated to Africa and yet the African governments waste it on weapons and luxuries for the leaders. It would be a waste of time.

    What people forget...Not only the fire but the water used to put it out will cause damage! 😐 This is the building that survived Hugenouts attack in the 16th Century Desecration during the French revolution, World war 1 and World war 2 but it is also the place where Mary Stuart Queen of Scots got married as well as James V not to mention the coronation of Napoleon Bonaparte and the canonisation of Joan of Arc took place here as well as the requiem masses when DeGaulle died and later on Mitterand...That building IS Paris...
