    Notre Dame Cathedral Fire

    Figured I'd post a thread about news for a change. Anyway, this started an hour or two ago.

    Current live stream:



    It's all extremely flammable being a 12th century structure. I'm not sure how the fire started but as you can imagine it all lit up pretty quickly. The whole spire fell down an hour or so ago and the firefighters have been trying to rush out the art and artefacts inside. I've been inside this cathedral. I know Paris fairly well, though I was a teenager when I went to the cathedral. To be honest I don't get sentimental over these things but I can understand why a lot of people would find it distressing.

    I heard it'll burn to the ground. Well, I've got the stream open. (We're naturally drawn to terrible things, aren't we? ) Anybody else ever visited this cathedral?

    When I heard this I thought the same thing. Given that they have had issues with the Eiffel Tower and other historical buildings/statues being vandalized or broken, I couldn't help but feel this way. Paris is a mess and it is a shame to see a once beautiful city be filled with crime, litter and despair.

    Was it? Admittedly, I haven't been following the story that closely so pardon my ignorance but considering the troubles France has been going through, I wouldn't be surprised if that's the case. Really sad that it's being burned down, a place of historical importance no less.

    Yep. Although it was 10 years ago.

    Yeah,

    The problem with the idea that it was an accident is that you have to assume a level of incompetence so colossal that it couldn't exist, in my view.

    That structure has stood the test of time all the way up to now, even with people using candles to illuminate it after dark.

    For centuries.


    Also factor in that there have already been several attacks on Christian holy places in France

    Oh wow, I didn't even consider the fact that Easter is next Sunday... This makes the timing even weirder. I hope it was just a coincidence and an accident but I am being to feel more and more like it was intentional. What a horrific thing to do.

    I didn't even know about those other fires in France. Even though I don't check the news every single day, I do most days. Frankly I'm not surprised that I hadn't learnt of this.

    I think Paul Joseph Watson's video really sums up the main issues here.

    Jim: "How do you know?"
    Gene: "I don't!"
