    Islam, the religion of peace

    Millennial Couple Bikes Near ISIS Territory to Prove ‘Humans Are Kind’ and Gets Killed

    And the Darwin Award goes to...

    Jay Austin and Lauren Geoghegan, both 29, last year quit their office jobs in Washington, DC, to embark on the journey.

    “You read the papers and you’re led to believe that the world is a big, scary place," Austin wrote.

    “People, the narrative goes, are not to be trusted. People are bad. People are evil."

    “I don’t buy it," he continued. "Evil is a make-believe concept we’ve invented to deal with the complexities of fellow humans holding values and beliefs and perspectives different than our own... By and large, humans are kind. Self-interested sometimes, myopic sometimes, but kind. Generous and wonderful and kind.”

    However, Austin and Geoghegan's dream trip came to a tragic and gruesome end when they got to Tajikistan, a ​weak state with a known terrorist threat that shares a border with Afghanistan, where ISIS and other terrorist groups are ​highly active. They were riding their bikes through the country on July 29 when a car rammed them, ​​according to CBS News. Five men got out of the car and stabbed the couple to death along with two other cyclists, one from Switzerland and the other from the Netherlands.

    Two days later, ISIS released a video showing the same men sitting in front of the group's black flag. They looked at the camera and vowed to kill "disbelievers," ​according to The New York Times.

    nail bunny, the guy that constantly claims not to be alt-right while constantly using their memes, phrases and exemplifying all their attitudes and embracing all their opinions.
