    the towers were designed to fall down when hit by a 40 ton jet plane traveling at 500mph and full of fuel

    jet planes didnt exist and neither did jet fuel when notre dame was designed, and fastest anybody could go was on a 1/2 ton horse (25mph?)

    (for those who dont get it- this is a stupid answer to a stupid question)

    If I had been hit. By something going 550 mph it would have. This was a simple fire, that ALMOST destroyed the two cathedral towers.

    Question of degree and kind,

    Notre Dame wasn't doused with close to 100,000 kg of jet fuel before the fire started.

    The twin towers pancake collapsed from the top down due to weight.

    The NDC is built of stone and the wood inside burned. The stone did not collapse.

    It takes less to hold up one cathedral than two towers.

    Because they just don't build things like they used to.

    P.S. The Twin Towers didn't completely collapse. There were jagged walls protruding out of the ground tens of stories high for more than a year. I know. I had to walk past it every day.

    Made of different materials and their size and shape are completely different.

    The cathedral wasn’t hit by jumbo jets filled with jet fuel.

    And they built things better back then. Stone doesn’t melt as easily as steel.
