Nigerian Grad Student Used Magnets To Prove Gay Marriage Is Wrong


A scientist in Nigeria has come up with the zany theory that gay marriage is wrong via an experiment using magnets and other methods. Chibuihem Amalaha, a graduate student of chemical engineering at the University of Lagos, claims that same-sex unions can be disproved scientifically and has the academic support of his university.

Nigerian newspaper The Daily Live profiled Amalaha, who has written and published various articles as a science reporter. Along with puffing his chest over his various achievements in science, Amalaha revealed his head-turning revelation that gay marriage is wrong and how his multilayer research proves as such.

From The Daily Live:

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 Pole 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. A female should not attract a female as South Pole of a magnet does not attract the South Pole of a magnet. But, when you bring a North Pole of a magnet and a South Pole of a magnet they will attract because they are not the same, indicating that a man will attract a woman because of the way nature has made a female.

Along with using his physics theory, Amalaha also introduced chemical, biological, and mathematical examples to debunk gay marriage and professors at his school back up his claims. Not only that, Amalaha was told by instructors that he will win a Nobel Prize one day for his research.

Amalaha was also commended by Dr. Henry Boyo, head of the Department of Physics at UNILAG. “He conceptualised the idea of using sciences and mathematics to prove gay marriage wrong and we have worked it here,” said Dr. Boyo to Daily Live. “Some people make claims to religion but he went a step further to use science and mathematics to prove gay marriage wrong.”

Earlier this year, the Nigerian government passed a controversial anti-gay bill, which threatens up to 14 years in jail for any offenders and even death by stoning in some remote parts of the African nation.

    Well let the truth be revealed in all ways and manners. LOL some people will do anything to hide their low self esteem. Just be the true you GOD made, even science will tell you the truth.

  • I don’t care what no one else does….I just know being gay ain’t for me!

  • kinge

    Don’t let anybody, take your manhood.

    What does a magnetic field have to do with someone’s sexuality. The experiment he performed is something much like what a child performs in elementary. This ignorance is laughable.

  • FairAndBalancedReporting

    Although this DOES sound like an incredibly stupid waste of a school’s resources AND a student’s scientific and mathematical ability, I had to wonder why the other scientific proof was not presented in this article. It was like the writer was trying to make this guy look even MORE stupid than he’s making himself look.

  • Bottom Line

    I bet u men aint wearing skinny jeans and lipstick over there! And why do the boy looking girls always be grabbing they crotch?? I mean why????

  • guessmyname

    Ummm… Only one problem … WE ARE NOT MAGNETS! lol

  • Jordan Petersen

    Hmm, it appears this discovery has not been found in our third world country of Nigeria, but humans are not magnets. Whoa. Where’s my nobel prize?

    • Don’t be dumb

      There’s obviously a bias by the writer. They chose to put up the elementary level proof and completely disregarded the proof using mathematics and physics. So that people like you could make ignorant comments like this one.

    You can also place a woman on one side of a wall, and a man on the other, and by moving the man around make the woman on the other side appear to levitate up and down the wall.

    Assuming you wrap their gentiles in very powerful magnets of course.
