Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris on fire

Few weeks back I read about churches being torched all over France. It was not very publicized. First thing I thought of at the time was Notre Dame. If you look at the pictures there was scaffolding all around it, they were obviously doing repairs to the building. Most likely a construction fire..

Hey JJ
yes it was an on going construction project!
Just because a contractor is on site don't jump to the conclusion that it must be a construction fire!
You are dealing with a structure that is primarily built inside of extremely old timber that has not seen the light of day in centuries.
This wood is dryer than a popcorn fart.
You are dealing with a process that has a bazillion candles on the inside.
You are dealing with a time which is one week before Easter which undoubted is a very busy time for the Church and the people that run the structure.
Perhaps it is just a careless use of a candle left unattended that fell over or a match carelessly discarded by a patron.
Who know's?? But lets just not jump to conclusions and start finger pointing.
The world regardless of your faith has lost a Heritage structure of monumental proportions.
Even if the church is rebuilt it will NEVER be original.

Even if you're not religious, it's a sad loss of a historical building. Wasn't it the tallest building in the world for a long stretch?

It is a huge loss. Was built 800 years ago. Just heard two of the richest families in France donated 300 million already.

This is really sad, visited the Church a few years back, beautiful, along with the history it represents.

Very sad.

Makes you wonder though. This building has stood the test of time and a "reno" caused it to burn down?????

We are taking 2 world wars, riots, weather, age, etc. and nothing, but do some work on it and poof, it goes up in flames.

I don't get it. If it was a construction fire, someone is responsible. His head should be on a spike for this. We should know who and how.

I don't get how they have even called this an accident, not arson. The embers were still smouldering, so how do you know it was an accident? Unless someone on the crew told people how it happened and if that is the case, then that person who did this should be told to us. In my humble opinion.

YEP, and it still continues, bum raps or not.

As long as ANY religion is allowed to brain wash/indoctrinate the young, will continue, until some government steps up and treats religions like a business, and makes the brain washing of the young illegal.

Another screw up.

Notre-Dame Cathedral was struck by a devastating fire and YouTube had a mistake with a new feature. In the US and South Korea, Youtube accidentally displayed info panel related to the 9/11 attacks. The panels are meant to combat misinformation and conspiracy theories, reports Business Insider. The feature is intended to link viewers to verified sources on trending news subjects.

The panels were automatically triggered as the fire at Notre-Dame Cathedral captured global attention. YouTube says it has disabled the panels for live streams related to the fire. Multiple YouTube viewers tracking the devastating fire at the Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris reported it.

1. I don't think you understand what they teach in that building. :biggrin2:

2. This is so sexist.....what couldn't it be a woman's head that needs to be on a spike? Admins need to block this sexist post! :biggrin2:

Please go and read post # 4 that I put up trying to correct JJ's post!
I am not saying it was male or female and I am not saying it was a construction fire.
I am saying please wait until the investigation is over.
This is a very horrific fire that happened and pointing the finger now is not right.
I have personal experience in this type of matter and you are just adding to the frenzy of "Oh it was a construction site so they started the fire"
Any construction site around the world will have that finger pointed at them unless people STOP and wait for the investigation.
Can you just imagine the thoughts that are running in the minds of ALL construction workers on that site right now.
Please Please Please wait for the investigation to be complete.

Latest "suspicion", is an electrical short started the fire, which of coarse, means absolutely nothing.

Except make it seem officials,... are on the job.

I agree. I was laughing at myself. It is totally sexist to write/assume gender. Mine was not meant to inject gender either but I did.

I was just owning my shit.

I have no problem waiting BTW, but the French president already said it was not arson. That is not waiting for an investigation, then embers were still smouldering when he announced it.

It it has been announced it is suspected to be an accident related to the Reno, so as you can see, it is not me saying a construction mistake, it is the authorities making those assumptions and that is all they are telling us.

Read on and shake your head and good call by the man.

There were accusations that the wildly rich were trying to wash their reputations during a time of national tragedy.

Can you imagine, 100 million, 200 million in one click! said Philippe Martinez, head of the militant CGT labor union. It really shows the inequalities in this country.

If they are able to give dozens of millions to rebuild Notre Dame, he added, they should stop telling us that there is no money to pay for social inequalities.

Unless they acquired their fortunes illegally, then a union rabble-rouser black mailer, of all people, have nothing to complain about.

Plus, would you suggest that the government of France steel those donors money, maybe in Venezuela, being a socialist country.

Tell the union rabble-rouser to go and live in Venezuela, there is no inequalities there, everybody is socialist poor.
