    • It was definitely over 1,000 degrees in that church. The stone walls would trap in the heat and turn it into an oven.

    • Yall wanna talk science, lets talk science. 1. That isnt pure gold. Pure gold is too soft to actually make anything out of, the most common high purity alloys melts around 900-950°C. 2. The flash point of wood is actually 575°c, but unimpeded, can burn as high as 1200°c.

    • False. - The fire burned at 1400°c - Stone melts at 1200°c - PURE gold melts at 1064°c, cross isn't pure. Hope science is just an interest for this guys, and not his field of study. Science disagrees with him.

    • "A wood fire burns at 600" Might I remind you that was not your typical fire place fire. The entire fucking building was up in flames and anyone with the slightest bit of background in science would know a fire that large would be burning at extremely high temperatures.

    • No soot and no ash on the cross, and the heat in there definitely couldve reached that temperature. Brainlet atheists at it again thinking they know science.

    • Gold is one of the easiest metals to melt honestly. That and lead. It’s honestly a miracle that cross didn’t warp or anything. Being in flames for hours and hours inside of a stone surrounding is pretty remarkable.

    • The fire reached temperatures of about 1900°F. Gold melts at about 1950°F. While the flames weren't technically hot enough to melt the cross, they absolutely should have caused some damage to it at that temperature, and yet, they didn't. Not to mention, the altar was still standing as well...

    • Ok first off it was maybe 700 degrees in there. Stone walls trapping heat won’t add an extra 400. Wood and paper and stuff burns from 400-600. Second it’s impressive because with the fire and structural collapse of the rafters the cross was untouched. Not just it was unmelted.
