The Banana Argument Insults Everyone

Ray Comfort doesn’t just insult your intelligence. He insults the very creatures he’s distantly related to:


Of course, Ray doesn’t believe he’s related to Bobo. This is his understanding of evolution:


Yikes, that’s a lot of ignorance.

  • I’m still convinced that Ray Comfort is just an elaborate hoax out to make Christians look stubborn and ignorant . Poe’s Law strikes again, I suppose.

    The bananas we eat are intelligently designed. Just by us and not a god. Wild bananas are unappetizing in the extreme (at least to me).

  • Richard Wade

    Ray as an individual may be more closely related to bananas than to apes, hence the attraction.

  • Shane

    You accidentally cropped out the caption for that bottom picture: “Gay Sex Orgy”.

    For once, Ray and I agree on something.

    I kind of laugh, though, at what Ray had to do to make him realize the first scenario is full of fail. Any zoos been robbed lately?

    It’s very difficult to deal with those who see an “ordered universe” and set up the question of “randomness or creator”, expecting nobody to think in all rationality that it all came together through random processes.

    But that, of course, is the most amazing thing about evolution to those that understand the process – that it turns randomness into order. It’s very simple to set up a computer program to show this, allowing only a random starting point, and random mutations, but picking from the population those that are “most fit” for their “environment”, and you rapidly converge on the solution to your problem, yet all you used were random numbers. And we know through our study of chaos in mathematics, that order will form from apparent randomness quite easily. We see “randomness” when we see things we don’t understand the full complexity of, and indeed, they appear random. But more often than not, it’s either highly complex or chaotic systems at work that are not random.

    From his blog:

    Special Thanks to Atheists: For many years I compared a coke can to a banana, in a parody. Atheists edited the coke can from a video clip and sent it around the world, saying that I believed that the banana was proof of the existence of God. But in their effort to make me look foolish they unwittingly gave me a huge international platform.

    Is he REALLY claiming that atheists shopped a video about a coke can to make him look like an irretrievable retard? That’s not a rhetorical question.

    For those interested, here’s an article that pretty much explains and destroys the banana argument

    I’m organizing a trip to see the spiders at the national zoo next weekend.
    Someone pointed out that they have banana spiders then said: The banana spider – the atheist arachnophobe’s worst nightmare.

    I have a similar theory about Ann Coulter….

    I think Andy Kaufman never died and this ‘Ann Coulter’ person is just another of his faux personas like Tony Clifton 🙂

    that’s the ONLY scenario that makes me ‘feel ok’ when I’m forced to think about Ann Coulter.
