    Nah, I wouldn't play the conspiracy theory game. Prolly just some idiot who was smoking near some flammable chemicals.
    (Dammit, I gotta stop watching 1970s made-for-TV ripoffs of The Towering Inferno. :P)

    That's where it gets muddy...

    See, the cathedral is owned by the state, but loaned for free to the church, on the condition that the latter take care of the upkeep cots. Which they didn't. Which led to the cathedral deteriorating to the point that in the '90s there were severe warnings about potential collapse, and eventually the state had to intervene (only recent-ish they got around it). And well, that led to the renovations now that may have led to the fire.

    So yeaaaah, the church is probably not gonna be helping shit despite the fact they were borrowing that place for free and not doing their part of the deal in the first place.

    Color me surprised.
    A Black Falcon: no, computer games and video games are NOT the same thing. Video games are on consoles, computer games are on PC. The two kinds of games are different, and have significantly different design styles, distribution methods, and game genre selections. Computer gaming and console (video) gaming are NOT the same thing."

    If we start throwing around conspiracy theories, this thread will go down into politics pretty fast.

    Doubt there is any conspiracy theories worth mentioning here.

    Either you have an accident caused by some careless crew member(s) doing the renovations or you have arson by some asshole who will surely end up murdered in prison for what they did. I lean very strongly towards the former.

    I wonder how much financial rallying was done for the child abuse victims. Out here the Catholic Church is ALWAYS begging for money and I will 100% guarantee the churches start asking for $$$$ for the building that was burned and ya know what? People will give otherwise they've punched their ticket to hell, according to some manipulators. I digress Baloo.

    Organized religion is the biggest crime against humanity. Itís the mob without guns.

    Kind of a visual metaphor for what's happening to France in general if you ask me. Still, the thought of all that history being destroyed is horrible.

    Understand you are speaking of the French so there shouldn't be any surprise.

    Anyways, I don't think religion is necessarily the problem UNTIL people allow themselves victims of manipulation. The Catholic Church is a billion dollar business and IMO it should front the $$$$ rather than soliciting money from private people. A fool and his money are soon parted.

    So religion isn't the problem until it's a problem? Kinda sounds like religion is the problem.

    He's talking about spirituality. I wish I was spiritual, the alternative isn't great.
