An Atheists Nightmare

Folks, I have a favor to ask... I'd like you to watch the following video, and then I have a question for you. There is no right or wrong answer, I just want to see if your first impressions were the same as mine. Thanks to Mr. TJ Shelby for the find.

Alright, so having watched that, here's the question:

Do you think that this video is:

A - A spoof by some guy with a wicked sense of humor, or

B - A fundamental christian presenting his deep personal belief that men and banana's were created in harmony with each other.

I'd ask that you take note of your honest feelings right now, and let me know in a comment to this post as to what they are.

OK, as promised... When I started watching it, I found myself chortling a little. I was at work at the time, so I couldn't laugh out loud, although, had I been at home, I think I may have done.

It's been said that sarcasm is the lowest form of wit, but as my younger brother points out... It's still a form!!

I love sarcasm, and her close sister, little Miss Satire.

Unfortunately though, this gentleman is dead serious. He honestly believes that God created the banana with it's bio-degradable, perforated wrapper and ingenious color indicators, and created it to fit perfectly into our hands.

If you ask me, using a banana for this example does seem a little funny, don't the great apes like bananas?

As a final observation, as the man described the shape of the banana, with it pointed tip and gentle curve, I did almost lose it. Maybe it's just my filthy mind, but I swear he 'tossed' a couple of adianoeta's - Which is a fancy word for a double entendre. I decided to use it instead, since double entendre is kind of a 'mouthful'.

OK, OK, I'll stop now!


  1. This guy is actually quite a well-known defender of creationism, and this video made the rounds of the atheosphere a while ago.

    In addition to the points you've noticed, others have pointed out that the modern, human-friendly banana wasn't plucked straight out of natural "creation" as-is -- it's largely a product of selective breeding/cultivation (by humans).

  2. I guess I must have missed it the first time around then!

    I was wondering about the genetic manipulation aspect to the banana. Genetic manipulation and selective breeding are basically evolution with a helping hand I guess!!

    Thanks for the visit, and I'm really enjoying you're latest series!
