Chibuihem AmalahaYeah, we know that you guys are much more interested in hearing about instantly debunked Star Wars rumors and awesome space-related discoveries than anything with any kind of an agenda behind it. Climate change, in particular, seems to be one of the most polarizing subjects we can talk about. Speaking of polarization, were you guys all aware that magnets could be used to prove that gay marriage is wrong? Well, it can’t, really, but don’t tell that to University of Lagos post-grad student Chibuihem Amalaha, who has recently gone public with this bullshittery, along with a few other “scientific” ways in which chemistry, biology, and mathematics also disprove loving, same-sex marriages. Did anyone catch the polarization pun in all that?

This is definitely the kind of story that gets me hot under my collar (with rage, not lust), especially when Amalaha describes the reasons behind his “research.” Get used to the quote marks, folks.

In recent time I found that gay marriage, which is homosexuality and lesbianism, is eating deep into the fabric of our human nature all over the world and this was why nations of Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed by God because they were into gay practice. That is, a man marrying another man and a woman marrying another woman.

So, he’s basing this all on two cities that have never been definitively proven to exist, and on God’s alleged reaction to said cities. This isn’t the place for a religion debate, so we’ll just say this theory is on the opposite end of critical thinking. Also, I’m pretty sure the word “sodomy” has very little to do with marriage, regardless of the sexes of those involved. This fucking guy…

Okay, so let’s dive head first into his “experiments.” “I used two bar magnets in my research,” Amalaha says:

A bar magnet is a horizontal magnet that has the North Pole and the South Pole and when you bring two bar magnets and you bring the North Poles together you find that the two North Poles will not attract. They will repel, that is, they will push away themselves showing that a man should not attract a man. If you bring two South Poles together you find that the two South Poles will not attract indicating that same sex marriage should not hold.

He then goes on to pull the wool out from over our eyes by telling us that opposite poles are attracted to one another. I’m pretty sure Paula Abdul told us this back in the day, and she’s as full of shit as anyone in the relationship department.

opposites attract
This is closer to sodomy than gay marriage. So is stealing the covers.

So how about that biological “proof?” All it takes is a quick trip to the zoo:

We have seen that the female of a fowl is called hen and the male of a fowl is called a cock. We have never seen where a cock is having sex with a cock and we have never seen where a hen is having sex with another. Even among lions when you go to the zoo you find out that lion does not mate with a lion instead a lion will mate with a lioness showing that a lion being a male will mate with lioness being a female. Now if animals that are of even lower creature understand so much, how come human being made in the higher image of God that is even of higher creature will be thinking of a man having sex with another and woman having sex with another woman?

Then he talks about how men and women can’t get pregnant from have sex with the same gender. I expect this guy wrote a paper as a child on why square pegs can’t fit in round holes.

As for math and chemistry, he talks transitive properties and how acids and bases are different. All of his “science” can be read in the link above. You can also find him talking about the actual good things he’s done with his brain, but that’s neither here nor there as far as this story goes. It’s one thing when someone like Orson Scott Card just openly rants against gay marriage, eventually and begrudgingly accepting its legality. It’s another thing entirely when someone says that the simplest principles in science are what proves that gay marriage is wrong. Beliefs are beliefs, and facts are facts. They do not cross each other’s paths here.
