Truly awful, all in less than the blink of an eye.

He made his mark whilst he was here.
Those were my exact sentiments when i read of this earlier.
Heaven knows, the loss of a child has to be one of the biggest tragedies anyone would have to endure, but to lose a child to such a random quirk of fate must be impossible to believe.

I wonder what 'God's plan' was there?
Uncalled for AH.
Absolutely heartbreaking. RIP Jordan.

That last line is out of order a-h.
absolutely tragic, rest now little one....
Mamya - // Uncalled for AH. //

I don't think so.

Myself and a couple of other regulars spend hours on here debating the notion of Christianity with a few fervents who continually bang on about 'God's Plan' and to be honest, it was the first thing that i thought of when I read about this tragedy.

If any Christian on here is offended by my reference to a cornerstone of their belief, then their faith cannot be strong enough to be justified - it's not just for arguments on the Religion section, it's supposed to be everywhere all the time.

If you think I am wrong, feel free to ignore my posts, I have no problem with that.
'ignore my posts' is not really in the spirit of the site though.
ummmm - // 'ignore my posts' is not really in the spirit of the site though. //

A fair point.

AH, "I wonder what 'God's plan' was there?" that was also the first thing I thought - tragedy, to be though further proof, if it were needed, that there cannot be a "god".
once more:
H, "I wonder what 'God's plan' was there?" that was also the first thing I thought - tragedy, further proof, if it were needed, that there cannot be a "god".
On reflection, I would not wish the thread to be diverted on the basis of an observation of mine - valid though i believe it to be.

To reiterate, I cannot begin to imagine the pain this little lad's family must be feeling, to lose their little one through what is clearly the hand of fate, nothing more.

I always think that, for any tragic loss, people can comfort themselves with the thought of chance being involved, but something as rare as this makes the futility of his loss even harder to comprehend.
A mature post AH . ( I think we are scared to say anything on AB now. RIP the wee boy .
Thank you anne.

I do stand by my post, because it is motivated by the thought that I as an atheist have absolutely no problem with the random vicissitudes visited on the human race by the random hand of fate.

What galls me is how anyone can seriously suggest that something like this is planned in advance, by a deity that could stop it, and that something good will come of it, even if those directly inolved will go to their graves, never having had an inkling of what that 'good' was ever supposed to be.

Which is fine on a relevant thread in the correct category.

But maybe not here, in relation to a particularly sad news story.

Yet is still being discussed in that vein...
He doesn't wish to divert the thread but has and will no doubt continue.
Feel free to start a thread about acts of god in Religion & Spirituality but please try and keep this thread clear of religious debate.
Absolutely tragic especially as a young boy.It is not unknown as I have known some instances where adult players have died.
grumpy - // It is not unknown as I have known some instances where adult players have died. //

Indeed - I always feel that in some way, the sheer randomness and unpredictability of a tragedy like this must make it so much harder to bear for those involved.
A-H supported by annieasquith have responded as they felt at the time,
Mamy and Lie -in- King responded by giving their own opinions.

All reasonable and I cannot see the need for management to intercede.
