Passion = Truth? How Jeffrey James Francis Ircink Sees The World? I love when people are passionate about something. That surging of emotion is the one honest measure of what truth is. It's a truthful display of how a person really feels about something or someone at that particular moment. That passion IS truth.

Random thought: 2002 Bali Bombings.

Not sure what I was doing on the Internet that led me to this subject, but...the 2002 Bali bombings occurred in October 2002 in the tourist district of Kuta on the Indonesian island of Bali, killing 182 people, 152 of whom were foreign nationals (88 from Australia alone), and 28 Indonesian citizens. 240 people were injured. Various members of Jemaah Islamiyah, a violent Islamist group, were convicted in relation to the bombings, including

Imam Samudra, Amrozi Nurhasyim and Mukhlas Ghufron (above) were convicted of the crime and executed by firing squad.

That little bastard terrorist on top? Upon hearing the sentence of death he immediately started screaming "Allahu Akbar" which means "God is great", and began doing jumping jacks. He then hugged his lawyers and told the court the judgement was made under laws he did not believe in. Despite his professed wish to die as a martyr, he - like Amrozi and Samudra - appealed against the sentence.

So my random thought is this: if these psychos are hell-bent on destroying everyone who's against them in the name of God and want to die a martyr's death, why did all three appeal their sentences? (Stupid, dumb, dead bastards)
