General / Off-Topic Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris is Burning

What is your house built from?
The house I live in is over 80 years old. built from the normal stuff, they build houses in those days. it is not mine, I just rent it.

JB, sometimes I wonder why you interact with me. Is it for my intelligent insights, or are you just trying to bait me?

Do you really think I'm baiting you, or are you just claiming victim status to avoid being nailed down to your positions, which I strenuously disagree with and think you should be able to defend?

On that note: living in a stick built house isn't a very defensible position to lobby against other people from being able to live in their own stick built houses. See? That's not baiting you at all, but rather educating.

And I do like debating with you. It's far more stimulating to discuss things with those on the opposite side of the spectrum then those who agree.
 
I understand that 'management' is a positive thing. But the true is, that management is not what is going on across the planet, as far as most tree felling is concerned.

Yes I do have a thing about trees, in general. Since the age of 10, I have been growing them form seed and planting them, all over the place. It is a beautiful thing to be able to go somewhere and look up and say 'I planted that'.
I cut a tree that was blocking the view from my window. Does that make me a bad person?

Of course not.

This reminds me of a story by the old Duke of Westminster. The guy owned a major chunk on the UK and on his personal estate he had a really big house, set at the top of a grassed hill; which lead down to a lake. Anyway: There was a 500 year old Oak tree, a real magnificent thing, but if you looked from his house, it blocked the view of the lake. So he got in a team of specialists and had the whole thing moved, about 30 meters to one side. When asked, why? He said; "I think that is what god would have done; if he had the money."

That you have to admire.
 
Another French Church Burns on Easter Sunday, Probable Arson!
Not pointing fingers, but some people did something!
Bad bad.

"The origin of the fire is not known the investigation is continuing"
Nothing indicating arson I'm calling fake news.
The fire destroyed the confessional.

Given the horrors of the Sri Lanka terrorist attacks on Christian worshipers and the proximity to Easter, all of this has a very bad smell to it. Too many attacks, too many fires, too many attempts at arson for me to believe that it's not connected.
 
I'm not saying they're connected, im saying that it's worth considering. You don't find it odd? The almost constant stream of attacks and (as far as we know at this point) accidents surrounding Christian institutions during a major Christian holiday? To deny that there is a pattern forming that is worth at the very least examining strikes me as being very narrow minded.

I don't understand french, but what i heard in the news was that it was confirmed by the police it was probably arson, so we just need to wait until all the facts are on the table.
 
Constant stream of attacks? Sri Lanka looks pretty isolated atm.
The Gendarmes are flatly stating that the source hasn't been confirmed yet. Anyone claiming otherwise is flat out lying.

The BBC did mention, someone had said the Easter attacks were revenge for Christchurch, but it was only mentioned, the once. I.S. has now claimed the Easter attacks as theirs, but they do that for everything.

It could be just that, Church fires are news right now and so that now, any fire in a church, becomes big news.

That said, it still does not rule out, that they could be connected, or happened due to a similar motive.

Yeah, that's a good point. Lot of focus right now in the media. On the other hand, anti-Christian sentiment seems to very ramped up, too.
