The spire has fallen, and the roof has entirely collapsed into Notre Dame.

This is heartbreaking.

There is a saying.

Man fears time.
Time fears the pyramids.

12. Eventually but it's gonna be a while.

Nothing is permanent.

Even the mountains will eventually sink and new mountains will form as the continents drift and eventually come back together again.

14. Well of course. Nothing is permanent.

After all, the Appalachians were once higher than the Himalayas.

If I climb what is the highest point in my county, which is about 200 yards from my back yard, it is obvious from the limestone fossils that it was once at the bottom of the sea.

15. Yeah. The interior seaway covered most of North America.

Thousands of feet deep for a long time.

The Guadalupe mountains in Texas are coral reefs that grew that large underwater for that long. Not sure how long it took the reef to form.

16. This formation is Upper Carboniferous.

So about 300-320 Million years old.

The wife and I are fanatical fossil collectors.

25. I've got crates of stuff laying around here.

We've driven hundreds of miles on the weekends to prospect. There is a spot up on Lake Erie near Buffalo where Trilobites are just laying everywhere.

27. It's a great excuse for a drive... and to drink.

Drive to a spot, beat on rocks with a hammer, stop for lunch, have a beer or cocktail, maybe go to a different spot, beat on some more rocks, start heading back home via a few microbreweries, end up at our favorite cocktail lounge near home.

We're even importing a classic car for that specific purpose.

10. Very sad to see

I've never been in Notre Dame, but I've visited several other old cathedrals in Europe. They just fill one with awe. So many treasures and works of art will be lost. Breaks my heart.

22. Based on prior French terrorism attacks in France by muslims.

Today is the first day of Holy Week as well.

Can't rule it out.

24. I agree that it can't be ruled out

But I don't see anything pointing to arson by anyone as being a more likely cause than a construction accident, an electrical fire or any number of other things yet either.

23. How about you stick to the subject and knock off the personal attacks ?

Arson is always a consideration in any fire investigation.
