"II Chronicles 17" states "behold, and he raised up the pillars before the temple, one on the right hand and the other on the left and called the name of that on the right Jachin and that upon the left Boaz".
Since the dawn of civilization, two pillars have guarded the entrance of sacred and mysterious places. Whether in art or architecture, twin pillars are archetypal symbols representing an important gateway or passage toward the unknown.

It still happens but not every instance of a symbol is proof it is happening in that particular case, finish waking up.
Preponderance of the evidence means the superior weight of evidence upon the issues involved, which, while not enough to free the mind wholly from reasonable doubt, is yet sufficient to incline a reasonable and impartial mind to one side of the issue rather than the other.
The preponderance of the evidence is an evidentiary standard used in most civil cases. It’s a far less stringent standard than that used in criminal cases, which is beyond a reasonable doubt.

I haven't seen insurance claims but I read the donations are up to 700 million now just from a few billionaires.
The answer: None.
The vaunted cathedral has no insurance, a spokesman for the French Consulate in New York City told MarketWatch.
France owns Notre Dame, just like it owns all religious buildings erected before 1905, he said.
“The French State is self-insured for Notre Dame. It has no insurance. It is supposed to cover its own costs,” spokesman Paul Gadel said.
He said the contractors working at the church would be insured themselves, having liability policies.
“Typically that would provide cover to them with a limit somewhere in the ten of millions of euros. But, if they are found to be liable, that is going to be a drop in the ocean compared to what the actual cost of restoring the cathedral is,” Read said.
The French insurer AXA revealed Tuesday it underwrote policies for two of the contractors involved in ongoing renovation efforts when the fire started.
Ok dude, whatever. I’m not going to go around in circles with you trying to convince you what is already common knowledge.
