    They could probably reconstruct with modern technology and materials (based on photos or blueprints etc) but even if it’s copied brick by brick- it will never be the “original”.

    We are the generation(s) that saw the twintowers fall.
    We are the generation(s) that saw notre dame burn.

    As a french, what is currently happening is insane. My family which is Christian is freaking out. This event is as shocking as a terrorist attack for not only the catholique but also every one else.

    Scaffolding were made around spire that fallen and broke through the roof.

    Hey, at least you're joke was light. (no pun intended) Mine was actually simpler but disturbing.
    Notre damn~
    I, too hope the people survive in the fire.

    As insensitive as it is, its too early for jokes at the moment. I would liken this loss as a grieving moment for a lot of people.

    "Ship of Theseus" The logic of fundamentally replacing/restoring the parts or entirety of an object, makes it either the same or different.
    In all likeness to "My Grandfather's Axe" story.

    Some will say it "is" the same and others will say it "is not" the same
