We checked, this is NOT a story from the Onion! But it sure would fit.
Amalaha says that his ‘groundbreaking’ experiments have shown that the north and south poles of two magnets are attracted to each other while same poles repel each other.
He concludes that this “means that man cannot attract another man because they are the same, and a woman should not attract a woman because they are the same. That is how I used physics to prove gay marriage wrong”.
His other high-school standard experiments include showing that negative ions are attracted to positive ones in the process of electrolysis. “That is what electrolysis is showing us, that gay marriage is wrong in the area of chemistry,” he states.
Despite massive evidence that homosexuality is all too common in nature, Amalaha further insists that biology also indicates that same-sex attraction is unnatural.
Amalaha claims that he’s the first person in the world to scientifically show that same-sex marriage is wrong, adding “In general, same sex marriage is evil. It should be stopped by those practicing it”.
In a country where being gay can land you in prison for years or even death by stoning in certain parts of the country, this “scientist” is having his research and “discoveries” supported and promoted by other scientists, like by Dr. Henry Boyo at the Department of Physics at the University of Lagos, who claims Chibuihem Amalaha’s research is scientifically proven to be true.
We really can’t begin to dismantle a framework that is… not even wrong, just so warped and irrational.
Chibuihem Amalaha is hoping for a Nobel Prize for this sham inquiry! Sorry, but they don’t give out the Nobel Prize in absurdity and homophobia. Sick. And a disgrace to real scientists everywhere.
