In the above we have a man in Nigeria who has proven, scientifically, that the gays are gross.

Scientific methodology?

Magnets!

Well how the fuck do they work?

Apparently, south poles repel south poles, and north poles repel north poles.

North poles attract south poles though, so that means opposites attract. And men are like north poles, and women are like south poles... so that means being gay is an abomination... i guess.

One thing he perhaps didn't think of, is that the magnetic field lines loop back around from one pole to the other. So perhaps the north pole is the "front peice" and the south pole is the "where the sun doesn't shine" and magnets are really telling us that gay sex is super correct!

don't argue with it folks... that's just science right there.

Have you tried that? Looking for answers?
Or have you been content to be terrified of a thing you know nothing about?

Are you pushing your own short comings on us and safely hating them from a distance?

Is this the virtue of faith? To never change your mind: especially when you should?

Young Earth Creationists take offense at the idea that we have a common heritage with other animals. Why is being the descendant of a mud golem any better?

Confidence being an expectation built on past experience, evidence and extrapolation to the future. Faith being an expectation held in defiance of past experience and evidence.

Just say no to fallacious appeals to authority.

But that's not all. Amalaha, who says he'll win a Nobel prize one day, has also used chemistry, biology, and mathematics to disprove gay marriage.

Quote:
"Nigeria's laws on homosexual acts are notoriously harsh; current legislation punishes homosexual acts with up to 14 years in jail, or, in some northern regions of the country, death by stoning."


:evil: :( :evil:

come on Nigeria, catch up, you can do it.

Looks like another case of 'politically correct science.' Reminds me of the Lysenko fiasco in the old Soviet Union. :D

It would be funny if it weren't so scary. :o

Good Lysenko call out, Cattleman!

i was vaguely aware of him, but this prompted me to read up on it a bit! He was also, really REALLY good at science!

haha. Thanks!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trofim_Lysenko

This reminds me again of my topic "converging on the truth".
Real scientific discoveries are moderated by reality, not political pressure.

The offspring of mice which have had their tails cut off continue to be born with intact tails. An obvious example of the failure of Lemark and Lysenko's conception of genetics and evolution resides in the pants of the Jewish and Christian men among us.

That's an experiment that's been going on for the better part of a few thousand years! If you really did inherit the physical modifications done to your parents then each and every forskin is a miracle!
