The banana: “the atheist’s worst nightmare”

April 11, 2008

Behold, the power of stupidity:

I think this may be the worst argument I’ve ever heard.  Yes, the banana.  So perfect, it’s easy to propagate with the seeds it produces.  Wait, no.  It’s a triploid mutant which is completely sterile and has to be propagated by cloning.  It’s also practically disease free, and certainly doesn’t require massive amounts of fungicide to grow.  But, by God, he is right that bananas certainly are easy to eat.  Pomegranates, it seems, were created by Satan. 

Or maybe we like to eat bananas because they are so easy to eat, not the other way around.  If God were trying to create the “perfect food,” he probably should have put more protein in it.  In fact, many people in the third world have protein deficiency problems caused by a diet consisting largely of plantains (a type of banana).  Oh wait, this is an application of the more general principle that God hates poor people and wants them to suffer.  Aha!  So this is just another example of God’s perfection!

    From RandyNewman.com, God’s Song


    That’s why I love mankind

    I recoil in horror from the foulness of thee
    From the squalor and the filth and the misery
    How we laugh up here in heaven at the prayers you offer me
    That’s why I love mankind

    The Christians and the Jews were having a jamboree
    The Buddhists and the Hindus joined on satellite TV
    They picked their four greatest priests
    And they began to speak
    They said, “Lord, a plague is on the world
    Lord, no man is free
    The temples that we built to you
    Have tumbled into the sea
    Lord, if you won’t take care of us
    Won’t you please, please let us be?”
    And the Lord said
    And the Lord said

    I burn down your cities-how blind you must be
    I take from you your children and you say how blessed are we
    You all must be crazy to put your faith in me
    That’s why I love mankind
    You really need me
    That’s why I love mankind

    The most amazing thing to me is the reference to satellite TV. The song came out in 1972-1973. Time folding I assume.

    I like that song, thanks Ted.

    LOL, that video was great. I haven’t seen the mixed one only the original.

    Like the bananas themselves which grow in hanging clusters, this particular example of creationist stupidity is… (wait for it) low-hanging fruit.
    (ducks, runs)  :coolsmirk:

    …and deserves a comical response
