re: Breaking: Notre Dame Cathedral on fire in Paris
I hadn't heard about the other church's in Paris that were vandalized, so it does make one wonder a bit. I hate to jump to conclusions though like it seems most on here do. Let the facts come out.

But it would close. This happened, supposedly, after closing

Look - I’m calling it right now.

This fire started right after it closed to the public. Some “visitor” of a particular religious persuasion set this fire at the end of the day knowing that would make it less likely to be discovered in time. The construction is just an added bonus because it likely meant there were flammable materials on site.

This was intentional.

Flame away but you’ll find out later I’m right if the French ever actually investigate and disclose what they find. .


My thinking is along the same lines.

Do I think this was a "terrorist attack" a la 9/11? No.

But I sure as hell think it's a pretty big damn coincidence for one of the most iconic Christian churches in the world to go in flames on Holy Week.

I think it was an individual actor with access and opportunity.

No comparison at all. Reports are no one has died in this incident. Quite a bit of difference.

Actually Ascension Day, May 30th this year, seems to be the most religious day in France. Everything is shut down and very few trains run.

Construction can certainly be the cause but construction happens all the time without fire, too. 


There have been multiple instances of fires happening during restoration in the last couple of years. In the UK alone, fires happened during restorations in Bristol, Exeter, and Glasgow the last couple of years. I'd argue that a fire during the restoration process is more likely, especially with older buildings. It's not uncommon.

Yes yes... Because nothing electric in a construction zone can overheat and catch fire


You’re jumping to conclusions that it was Muslims just like the Libs jump to conclusions during a mass shooting. Calm your horses and wait to see what the evidence shows.

What is wrong with flying water tankers dropping thousands of gallons of water on top of an 800 year old structure? Not sure why that needs to be explained to you.

Yea let's just do nothing. Solid advice

Yeah... definitely don't want to disturb the fire. You must respect the rights of the fire. And you might get the church (which is engulfed in flames) wet. Sure don't want to do that...
