    going down this path is dumb because people value things differently due to personal reasons (why I cite the grief tourism angle) but knowing all the art/artifacts were saved you only have to go back to Brazils national museum last year, setting aside the widespread destruction of literally thousands of years of cultural sites throughout Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, etc over recent history

    especially compared to a site we have to the nail data on and was largely rebuilt in the 19th century already

    admittedly should have bit my tongue seeing people melting down but i'm really bad at that obviously

    You're auditing emotional response to the burning of Notre-Dame while it is burning. This is an all-timer.

    It’s a thousand year old holy site in one the worlds most historical cities that’s one of the top 3 relics of the largest religion on the planet which has more or less ruled a significant part the world for thousands of years. Are you serious?

    Imagine being the company that was doing the renovations. Who in their right mind would hire the company that is responsible for the destruction of one of the most historically significant architectural sites in the world? Might as well close up shop and cut your losses.

    There's going to be no "cutting of losses." Assuming it was responsible, the renovation company became insolvent the moment the spire went down.
