Hallucinating is a result of a mental disorder and in some cases, gay marriage is a result of a mental disorder for the gays who became gay due to some kind of trauma and THAT'S been verified.You might want to cite evidence for that.

It could be pointed out, for example, that Africa at the time of slavery was still primarily a jungle, as yet uncivilized or industrialized. Life there was savage, as savage as the jungle for most people, and that it was the Africans themselves who first enslaved their own people. They sold their own people to other countries, and those brought to Europe, South America, America, and other countries, were in many ways better off than they had been in Africa.Logic test: Making the argument black people should be grateful for slavery makes a source realiable/unreliable?
