The Battle of Zama Didn't Happen as Documented

The Battle of Zama was supposedly the last battle of the Second Punic War. In the beginning of the battle, the elephants of Carthage supposedly charged at the Romans, were scared away by the loud noises of the Romans, attacked the Carthaginian left flank, and routed them. This is already flawed logic as the people who rode on the elephants were equipped with chisels to kill the elephants if they were to try to kill any of their own soldiers. After this, the Roman right flank cavalry was said...

As Pro, I will be arguing that Adolf Hitler (chancellor of Germany from 1933-1945) was a good artist.

This interrogation came to me when the issue of same-sex marriage was brought up a few years ago. I would often hear the argument "if two people love each other, why can't they get married ?". This argument proceeds, in my opinion, from a liberal conception of society. But based upon this logic, if love is all that matters when it comes to marriage, can I marry my sister if I claim to be in love with her ? Can I be married to 5 people if I say that I love them ? Can I marry a pencil as well ?...
