I hope when they rebuild it, they add in some strong fire prevention features. They were awfully slack about a national treasure. Stupid buggers.

I'm waiting with amusement for the conspiracy theories about the fire to surface.

First guess was Rees - Mogg. He hinted at trouble ...

If it was a Brexiter, it was a week or two too late.

Hopefully it wasn't a kraut. Then Lonestar's dream of a disintegrating EU might eventuate.

Le Oignon
17 April 2019

PARIS—Following a massive fire that destroyed significant portions of the Catholic cathedral, Paris officials vowed Tuesday to rebuild Notre Dame despite the cosmic absurdity of seeking inherent meaning in the fleeting creations of man. “We will come together as a nation to reconstruct Notre Dame, no matter the fundamental irrationality of imbuing mere man-made structures of stone and wood with any sort of deeper meaning in an existence where entropy is the only universal truth,” said French president Emmanuel Macron in a press conference, adding that the government had already received more than $700 million in pledged funding for a restoration project that will “serve as but a momentary impediment to the corrosive sands of time.” “Notre Dame was built, destroyed, and rebuilt over the course of hundreds of years, and we will rebuild it again, only to watch it decay once more, for indeed that is its fate, as it is the fate of all of man’s works. Like Sisyphus pushing the boulder up the mountain, we will endeavor to fix the cathedral despite all empirical evidence to the contrary, in a world which demonstrates time and time again that there is nothing real to be found in worshipping the ersatz edifices that serve as a sorry facsimile of any real human connection. We expect this completely arbitrary and fundamentally meaningless process to take 10 to 15 years.” Taking a drag on a cigarette, Macron added that French officials mourned the Catholic relics and artworks lost or damaged in the blaze, even if they are “but false idols and profane images merely serving to fracture the spiritual connection one ought to devote totally to God.”

This is not "conspiracy" info...this is the facts. Ask a FreeMason what really happened here...they know, but will not tell you the truth. Come out of the Matrix they have created all around us. (They told us we were in a Matrix, they had to, thats what makes their Magic work)
Many bits of information have surfaced, but you won't hear about them on CNN, CNBC, FOX, ect..
The call was not called in until hours later. Thats when the Firemen arrived. The "idols" were all removed from this "Church" a few days before this planned destruction.
This is all Kabalist, Satanic, FreeMason doings. They practice "Babylonian Magic" , and they "have" to tell you everything before they do it. This is how they make the magic work. You will see, all threw History these things were shown to us in advance.
Well, I could go on and on, but, just watch the videos.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sn7-l27sSP0
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8uwPWs6AMxA
And there are many , many more videos out there. They are telling us that "Times up"..the time of the Gentiles carrying the Gospel to the world is almost ended. The Pope is bringing all the religions of the world, into a One World Religion, controlled by the Kabalist, Satanic Jews. "Times up"..they are telling us this in Movies, music, Award shows, every where, now.

Thugs set fire to churches and smear poo on walls amid warnings France’s Christian heritage is under attack from ‘militant secularism’: Figures show 875 churches in France were vandalised last year

CHURCHES across France have been set on fire and poo smeared on walls as the country’s Christian heritage is said to be under attack from “militant secularism”.

Recent incidents have included a fire in Saint-Sulpice church in Paris, human poo daubed on a wall in Notre-Dame-des-Enfacts in Nimes, and an organ vandalised at Saint-Denis basilica outside Paris.

Some politicians have claimed the country’s Christian heritage is under threat from petty criminals encouraged by “militant secularism”.

Figures released by French police showed that 875 of France’s 42,258 churches were vandalised last year.

A further 129 churches reported thefts from the premises.

The interior ministry said that 59 cemeteries were also vandalised.

While the figures are down on the previous year when there were 1,045 acts of vandalism and 109 thefts they are still at a “worrying level”, according to Le Figaro.

Republicans MP Valerie Boyer said: “Every day, at least two churches are profaned.”

Critics of Prime Minister Edouard Philippe’s government have said it is not doing enough to stop the problem.

Following the fire at Saint-Sulpice, which cops say was started deliberately, the leader of the Republicans Laurent Wauquiez said the media had failed to give the issue more prominence.

He said: “Saint-Sulpice is not only a church, it’s a part of who we are. That’s enough of this code of silence.”

Draw a picture of Mohammod, though, and the ragheads throw a wobbly.

"My first thought was that it was an arson because the fire spread too quickly.
But then I learned a few things which makes me think that an accident is a possibility, without ruling out an arson attack.

1/ There were no fire extinction system, no sprinkler.
2/ There was a fire detection system but it was defective (or it was sabotaged). At the first alarm someone showed up, inspected the area where the fire was supposed to be and didn't see anything because the fire started somewhere else. Maybe the had already false alarms before and didn't worry.
At the second alarm, 20 min later, the smoke was already visible through the roof.
3/ The fire started in the spire. The spire was not build with oak in the 12th century but with pine in the 19th century. It was already a late redesign.
Pine burn much faster and the shape of the spire makes it perfect for accelerated ignition.
4/ There were many secondary pieces of wooden constructions under the main roof which could burn also very quickly.
5/ A study 4 years ago showed that risks were very high should a fire start upthere. That something should be done ASAP to secure the attic. Of course they didn't do anything. The municipality answered it was none of their business. Now that everything has been reduced to ashes, it's a national drama.
6/ It's not uncommon that roofs take fire during renovation. Thought, on that day, no work was done which could cause a fire.

The reason to think it was a criminal act:
1/ The speed of the fire surprised everybody. It took less than 20 minutes to take all over the roof.
2/ It happened just after the last worker on the scaffholder left, and gave back the keys to the guardian."

For those interested, this interview and article answers many questions about the circumstances surrounding the burning of the Notre Dame cathedral. It appears that this interview with the Notre Dame architect is being suppressed and not available through the general media outlets. Some of the comments by readers of this article are also interesting.

Notre Dame Architect: Blaze Was No Accident

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3745373/posts

"...a former chief architect of the Notre Dame – whose analysis has been virtually ignored – believes the accident theory makes no sense.

... Mouton explained that the oak timbers that made up the cathedral’s roof had become hardened after more than 800 years and wouldn’t burn easily.

“You would need a lot of kindling to succeed,” said Mouton, who served as the chief architect from 2000 to 2013. “It stupefies me.”

Authorities suspect some type of electrical fire sparked the blaze, but Mouton believes that’s not possible.

... we updated all the electrical wiring of Notre Dame. So there is no possibility of a short circuit,” he said. “We updated to conform with the contemporary norms, even going very far – all the detection and protection systems against fire in the cathedral.”

Nicolas Gueury, who electrified another set of bells in the cathedral in 2007, told the Times he thought about that possibility but has ruled it out.

“For me, this would be impossible,” he said, pointing out that numerous redundant safeguards, including circuit breakers and shielding, were installed.

“It was draconian. We tripled the precautions,” he said.

“We were all hyper-prudent. You don’t do just anything in the forest,” he said, referring to the medieval timbers that supported the roof. “It was hyper-securitized.”

A contractor admitted last Wednesday that workers renovating the cathedral flouted a ban on smoking. But he insisted “in no way could a cigarette butt be the cause of the fire at Notre-Dame.”
