I can’t seem to find a decent, embeddable version of the Comfort/RRS Nightline “debate”, but fortunately, there’s no shortage of inanity on the side of the Way of the Master. Most of you will have seen this one already.
Evidence in favor of God: non-slip surface, perforated wrapper, intuitive ripeness indicator, pull-tab, hand-and-mouth-fittery, ease of digestibility. Apparently.
Behold, Ray Comfort’s nightmare:
That’s a wild banana. It’s marginally edible, if you aren’t too picky, but that’s about it.
(Click for to make bigger; there’s another one here.)
The banana Comfort is waving around (a dessert banana) is the result of many, many generations of careful selective breeding, and even within the category of fruits that most people would consider to be a banana (that is, not including wild ones), there are plenty which are only worth eating after extensive preparation (the plantain comes to mind).
Comfort’s banana isn’t evidence of God so much as it is evidence of human ingenuity and, ironically, evolution.
Ah, but of course, they do believe in micro-evolution~
Incidentally, Nick Gisburne made a video response to the banana video. Included behind the cut.
