Forums - General Discussion - Notre Dame is on Fire

I was there yesterday and witnessed the moment the tall tower collapsed

I used to pass by it every morning at 6 to go school, its company in the morning lights (or darkness) always gave me a little comfort during my early (and difficult) days in France.

Heartbroken to see it in its current state, the restoration will take years and tons of money and won't be the same without the wood from 800 years ago that survived the numerous wars and the French revolution yet it didn't survive what's most likely to be an accident.

Does this mean they make the land available for a nice skyscraper

It's not funny. Who would want to get a nice skyscraper in the place Notre Dame? It'd be foolish. Besides, it's a very important place of worship and one a truly marvel of construction.



God bless You.

There were three ravens sat on a tree / They were as blacke as they might be / The one of them said to his mate, Where shall we our breakfast take?

Nonsense worship can be done anywhere, i find going to church majorly hypocritical same as worshipping socalled relics.

Religion doesnt require a place of worship it requires conviction and willpower. Not some fancy building. Religion and worship within oneself is all that is required. The wealth within and not the wealth visible

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

But fancy buildings are the best part of religion.

You can put fire on your own "fancy building" if you own one. This is Notre Dame we're talking about, it's a 800-year-old Christian place of worship. Millions of Christians have donated to build temples like that. It's not nonsense for millions of people of faith.

Wanting it to be burned down to be replaced by a skyscraper is just offensive, no matter how atheist you are.

Offensive? Are you joking? Offensive would have been if i said i was glad it was burned down because those heretics deserved no such place of powermongering.

At the moment i said it it looked like it was going to be totally destroyed, thus a logical conclusion was if the ground would have been redeveloped would the city have gone for big bucks.

While I agree about the religion, and a joke or not, this building in particular is an extremely important work in architecture and art, and stood for innovation and technical advancement. It’s construction was a huge achievement and the new techniques that were discovered in it’s design and development have been important to the advancement of western civilization. You’ll have to appreciate that this church is in part the reason why modern skyscrapers can be built at all, and is much more valuable to our culture than the biggest skyscraper one the site could ever be.

It was probably an accident.
