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.
