The Banana--The Atheist's Nightmare.

Contained within an evangelical pamphlet handed to me at the mall this weekend. Page one reads:

Note that the banana:
  1. Is shaped for human hand
  2. Has non-slip surface
  3. Has outward indicator of inward contents: Green--too early, Yellow--Just right, Black--too late.
  4. Has a tab for removal of wrapper
  5. Is preforated on wrapper
  6. Bio-degradable wrapper
  7. Is shaped for human mouth
  8. Has a point at top for ease of entry
  9. Is plaesing to the taste buds
  10. Is curved towards the face to make eating process easy

To say that the banana happened by accident is even more unintelligent than to say that no one designed the Coca Cola can.

There's just so much that could be said that, well... I'm left speechless. I would suggest that the Ministers at The School of Biblical Evangelism check the web browser history's of their 7000 students. It would appear that some of their activity on the web might be affecting their work.

I'm not sure what your point is. Everything proves the existence of God, but proving the existence of God is the absence of faith.

To paraphrase Freud - sometimes a bananna is just a bannana.

The only point I was making was that in addition to it being a poorly constructed argument for the proof of intelligent design, the aspiring evangelical wack jobs just might be spending too much time checking out the Bang Bros. website et al.

Not that I've ever been to that site before...

It seems to me that points 7 - 10 could easily apply to another banana-like object.

11. If you hold it backwards and keep it in your jacket pocket, it can be used to commit "armed" robbery.

12. Has a slippery peel for easy comedy

13. Fits almost perfectly in tailpipes

Can somebody please point me to a fruit that does NOT have a bio-degradable wrapper?

I can think of some more practical uses for a banana...

Fruit of the Loom?

I don't get it Billecart-babe, what other practical uses are you suggesting?

But maybe they're on to something. Doesn't banana peel have THC in it? Put THAT in your pipe and smoke it!
