The speed at which the cause was determined to be an accident suggests to me it was terrorism.

In September 2016 a car bomb next to the cathedral was defused. In February 2017 arrests were made of people plotting to attack the cathedral*. So far in 2019 churches across France have been vandalizes including arson**.

Notre Dame Cathedral has been in state of repair/revitalization/rebuilding/etc for most of it's existence. It seems peculiar that at almost no time during all that work such a devastating fire broke out. Especially during the days of torches and candle light.

Yet, the smoke has not even cleared and we are rolling with "accident". Why not go with "undetermined" until such time as it's...determined?

I can say, it's easy to see why the French government and their EU landlords would want to avoid any hint of malfeasance.

A water reservoir, covered with a lead roof, is located between the two towers, behind the colonnade and the gallery and in front of the nave and the pignon. It can be used to quickly extinguish a fire.

The above few lines can be found just above iconography on ;

16 Historic Statues Removed From Notre-Dame Cathedral 4 Days Before Fire


Is this the French version of training operations coincidentally happening the day of a major catastrophic event?

I would agree blaming the fire on an intentional act at this point is as speculative as saying it wasn't.


Precisely. I'm not looking to point the finger at anyone as culpable, but I am pointing a big ol' fat finger at the folks who have a priori decided it's just a big boo-boo.

Precisely. The old Shakespearean adage, "The lady doth protest too much, methinks," clearly applies here. You go shouting one thing before it needs to be shouted, I'm gonna doubt what you're shouting.

Exactly! This is all just a big misunderstanding! The alarm went off, but the people trained for such things in the Nation with some of the most valuable real estate on Earth just couldn't find the fire.


So, you think it was inside job, then. Not a Muslim extremist or terrorist group. Probably just some priests looking for an insurance payoff.




Notre Dame is not insured.

I'll tell you who it isn't, it's not Aliens, it's not the Illuminati, it's not the Cthulhu (lol), and it's not the Muslims or even Rick Astley.

So who's left?

Some of the art was insured by Lloyd's of London. Some of it was insured by Swiss Re.

Dammit! Rick Astley was my next choice. I honestly don't know who you're implying.

Pretty funny you think the absence of 'taking' credit is despositive of causation.

Maybe not dispositive, but certainly something to be considered - especially considering the ones most likely to have done this if it was intentional usually like to take credit for these kinds of things.

No that's the French version of preserving your treasured artifacts while renovation work is being carried out. You wouldn't believe how common this is!
