Comfort, Cameron, and Bananas

As you all probably know, I love to pick on Ray Comfort’s brand of religious faith — the kind of faith that is condescendingly righteous and all-consuming, the kind of faith that is so certain it can even tell when people don’t really believe the things they say they believe, such as when he says:

There is a difference between being a “believer” and being a Christian. Every sane human being is a “believer” in God’s existence. Some people pretend He doesn’t exist (atheists) but they know He does.

But what you may not know is that Ray joined up with Kirk Cameron (from “Growing Pains” “fame”) a few years back to present “scientific proof” of God’s existence. The proof was a banana. That’s not metaphor; the proof was actually a banana — more specifically the perfectly “designed” nature of bananas for human consumption. What many have pointed out since then is that modern bananas have been genetically altered to their present shape and size… by us.  In any case, here is a clip from that presentation. Enjoy!

    .. but you can’t cheat. Why do we have appendixes, why does cells sometime start growing into cancer? Seems to be a mediocre design to me. Oh, and by the way, who designed the designer?

  2. i just know that Freud would have a lot to say about that banana …
