    Therefore, he must be trolling. So, fucking infract him.
    Are you having an anger tantrum?
    While I personally believe that culture is an enrichment, it can certainly be argued that it’s a means to define one group from another, which results in exclusiveness, which means it’s divisive in nature.

    Just because you can’t understand or disagree with an argument, does not make it an infraction.

    @OP

    Sad to see such a monument go. Nothing lasts forever though, and 850 years is a pretty good run. Now we either rebuild, or make something entirely new out of it. Either way, it shall be a form of progress.


    Infracted for trolling.

    That's the thing. The forest where the wood was from doesnt exist anymore. The stones used they dont know where it's from. The arts and techniques used to build it is lost to time.
    You can rebuild something to look like it was before using some makeshift way, but it's going to last a few decades, not a thousand year like it used to be.

    How the fuck is disagreeing with the relevance of religious buildings trolling?

    I honestly was taken aback, how does one respond to that in a cogent way?

    Perfectly logical deductions based on what has been happening and what will continue to happen. Just as logical as thinking this was an "accident".

    How about the Muslims all over social media celebrating Notre Dame burning to the ground?

You can't rebuild a structure and then pretend "Oh it's been there for almost a millenium..."

    The whole point of having these old buildings around and spending billions per year in keeping them alive is to preserve something ancient. If the stone structure of Notre Dame falls, you might as well scrap the entire thing and build a modern church on top of it. Or nothing at all, like in Hamburg.

    you can't put a price on history. once it's gone it's gone forever.

    You can't. But to be fair, this isn't an american notion. You'll always have idiots who fail to grasp the concept of art, history and cultural heritage, simply because they haven't had any notable education to speak off. They're primitives, their lives will never amass to something, and they will always live in the civilizations built by greater men, never to achieve anything noteworthy in their entire life. They'll never know that, of course. Stupidity is like death. You don't realize your dead, or stupid, you simply are, it isn't a problem for you, only for those around you.

    Gorgeous building architecturally, very interesting history held within and a whole lot of sweat, blood and tears to erect the structure over the course of multiple centuries.

    Hopefully, it was just a construction accident and with that being said, i'd sure hate to be THAT guy tomorrow. That's a big whoops, like major big time, holy shit, whoops.

    We do have a little. St. Augustine in Florida and Puerto Rico both have buildings from the 1520s, with technically counts. And we have Pueblo structures from 100 BC to about 1400 AD (Well, technically all the way to 2019, since we still build them sometimes).

    It isn't the same though, readily acknowledge. These are priceless structures, and I hate to lose them no matter where they are.

    Could we, for the sake of this discussion and your own account, not derail the thread into a religion bashing contest?

    your the one who picked the picture are you daft? its not like any one made you post a white guy in a bandana as your big bad evil Muslim.

    a terror attack two years ago also isn't relevant at all and we have people in this very thread saying it was a good thing it burned because they don't like religion.

    there is literally not a single sign or link to Muslims.

    And the Old Testament of the Bible is full of hatefull things aswell. What is your point? If someone blew up the Kaaba, there would be idiots here cheering aswell. Retards are retards, no matter what race or religion they come from.

    Yeah.. the photo is fake anyway. Notice how they are right by the front of the cathedral, but the entire island was evacuated an hour before the flames reached the bell towers? (Which the flames have in that photo).

    You know how I can tell hate fanatics from normal people? Simple deduction...

    Here a normal chain of thoughts: Wooden framwork, French safety laws (lol) and an active construction site working with lead and apparently blowtorches... okay, must have been an accident.

    Hysterical hate fanatics: Wooden framework, French safety laws (lol) and an ctive construction site working with lead and apparently blowtorches... okay, and it was a church, so clearly MUSLIMS!!1

    See, one is horsies, the other is zebras. Little hint: I don't like you very much if you think zebras, drawa your conclusions from that and then go on internet forums throwing it out like... just an innocent little "oh... those muslims, the world would burn, if ti was them, wouldn't it"

    We know what these hate fanatics are doing, we know their agenda and by now we know how they work. Fuck them.
