Well Made Banana Debunks Evolution; Or Does it?

A hilarious video by Kirk Cameron, until I realized he was actually serious, attempts to prove creationism by showing how a well made Banana fits into your hand (btw: and so does something else too) for eating. See Kirk’s video below:

As many of you know that there is more to the story of banana than he knows. See this video below for a proper explanation and debunking the idiocy above.

These people trying to prove God with such silly examples is actually making a fool of themselves. Wild banana is nowhere like the domesticated banana of today (see the video above). Also by the same logic God has created even the bad things like AIDS, Cancer, Multiple Schlerosis and fundamentalists like the one shown above. What excuse do you have for such stupid creations from God?

The yellow is, far from being the mark of a right banana placed by Almighty G-d, is an artificial mark of the accelerated artificial ripening process (flooding the container with gas that ripens quickly)

Could you please provide more documentation as to the history of the banana and proper documentation of the selective breeding that gave us our current bananas? I may not know the right words to google, but didn’t really see anything that truely covered that or had any source/s to suggest reliability.

I assume you are familiar with Ray’s message, but I would be remiss not to touch on it. Ray cares about you, as do I, we do not want you to spend eternity tormented in fire. Everyone will be judged by a just and holy God, what do we have to gain from you? We aren’t asking you for money, we aren’t asking you to join a church, Ray isn’t asking you to buy his books, he offers them for people who want them and are willing to buy them, he doesn’t have a problem giving free books away, etc.

Imagine how you will feel when you wake up and realize that you are wrong? You will wish you had listened. I’ve prayed for you.

However, feel free to make fun of me or wahtever, but please do provide me with some reliable information on what the video claims about the background of the banana. I have no problem with that being the case, selective breeding has done many things, but to take something without any evidence whatsoever, would be silly, don’t you think? Odd that I wrote it that way, considering evolutionists are surprised at how few transitional forms they can find etc. (they really have no transitional forms, but they atleast even realize that they don’t have hte multitude they ought to if evolution is true). Even Richard Dawkins is intrigued by the notion of intelligent design, he just is unwilling for it to be God.

So please do provide reliable historic or scientific source, regardless of your disagreement with me.

Thank you very much - Jason

P.S. I didn’t pay close to Ray’s references to Einstein in the clip, but have seen some of his other references to Einstein, in those Ray made it clear that Einstein didn’t believe in the living God, just that Einstein (and other intelligent men) understood from creation that there must have been a creator.

Your comments on Einstein are not entirely accurate. Einstein did not believe in a personal God but he did believe in a higher power. He certainly was no fan of atheists!

Here are some quotes, “I have repeatedly said that in my opinion the idea of a personal God is a childlike one, but I do not share the crusading spirit of the professional atheist whose fervor is mostly due to a painful act of liberation from the fetters of religious indoctrination received in youth. I prefer an attitude of humility corresponding to the weakness of our intellectual understanding of nature and of our own being. (Albert Einstein)”

I want to know how God created this world. I am not interested in this or that phenomenon, in the spectrum of this or that element. I want to know his thoughts. The rest are details. (The Expanded Quotable Einstein, Princeton University Press, 2000 p.202)

As far as the banana, whether we look at a modern banana or a wild one, or any other variety we would all agree that they are part of the banana family, right? This is no different than the human family, cat family, dog family etc. Creationists will never dispute evolution within a species. The big question is what did the Banana evolve from? Can you trace it back to the first living cell? Speaking of the original cell, when did the animal and plant cells split up and why?

Big Bang? the galaxy collusion is just another theory. It can’t be proven and many other theories exist in the scientific community. What I really can’t understand is where did all this matter in the universe come from and what triggered this big explosion called the “Big Bang?” Did you ever see something come out of nothing? If you can demonstrate matter coming our of nothing (just produce one gram for me) in a repeatable lab experiment I will convert.

Yeah, and what about coconuts and pineapples? I god purposely designs fruits to be convenient to eat or not to be convenient to eat, why did he make these and others so tasty but so hard to get to? Are they naughty? Evil? I’m sure Comfort would simply say that this is part of god’s plan and having faith means not questioning it and not trying to explain it. Well, I realize I’m putting words in his mouth but if this were in fact his argument (I’m sure it would at least be something close to this), then he has absolutely no business (as the type of religious person he is) spouting out this garbage about bananas proving god’s existence.
