So in Germany they tore down some church for #coal of all things, an unprofitable and terribly climate-damaging form of energy.
This is beyond stupid,
@pinkprius such a shame
@pinkprius I guess thats one way of removing history......
@pinkprius Also looked at the replasment church and its a mordern one. FFS Destroying a bueatiful building and replacin git with an ugly one that will go of fashion in two years
It just _looked_ historic.
I dabble in history. Especially medieval period. There is more valueable stuff to rescue. Modern decorated bricks do not belong into this category. Unrelated to the coal idiocy.
@bekopharm: Just becuase it was an old building built in the 1800 dosnt mean it dost hold any significent value ( also i read the wikipage befor commenting the orginal comment). I do also have a personal bias towards stuff that looks old. becuase they look more pleasing to my eyes then the modern white buildings with tons of glass.
Wonder what would have happened if it was a mosque instead of a church.. 🤔
@AtlasFreeman I don't understand.
@pinkprius I'm a Muslim and I don't care much about churches. I can tell that for architects and artists like me, this is the loss of a grandly constructed ancient building. I hope that the artists managed to painting this building.
#RWE destroyed the whole area. Many small villages were wiped off the map. To get some lignite or just enough earth to fill up old holes.
When the game is over in 15 years, those in charge want to flood the mine for 40 years by tapping the Rhine.
Btw: the catholic church in the neighored #Otzenrath was even more unique.
When the girl of your first real kiss is gone, that is sad. But when the whole fucking town where you first kissed her is gone, it murders the memories.
And they built a new one ... That is really awful ! Insane !!
@pinkprius It looks like the Church is a mecha awaking
@pinkprius it’s fine they built a new one just as beautiful... oh... wait...
