Have you ever noticed that when a church burns the steeple remains standing. When there is a tornado the steeple remains standing. Through all types of weather, when the building collapses the steeple still remains standing. What is your explanation?

Interesting. I never thought about that. But wouldn't they use all of the same materials. All of the same wood? Etc.?
I'm not sure that they don't. You see the same thing in places like Tornado Alley (i.e. Kansas and Oklahoma) where there is always one part of the house that seems untouched while the rest of it looks like something out of Independence Day.
I remember reading that during WW2 bombing raids churches and cathedrals were completely destroyed, yet sometimes just the steeple remained standing. I'm sure that gave people some comfort at the time.
