Oh come on!  Nobody had the guts to shove a banana up Ray's ass?

The angry creationist responses to the video are pretty hilarous too.

Does anyone not find this the most ironic bs ever.....?

This video has no evidence to back up what they are saying. They took what Ray Comfort said out of context for their own benefit. God is clearly known to be true by his creation. Everything the Bible says lines up with creation. Next time back yourself up with evidence even though I know you won't be able to.

So who created the pineapple and coconuts? If this marvelous creator is such a frigging miracle worker why did he put Mai Tais in such ridiculous packages? Why didn't he make chocolate cows for christ sake? Now that would be awesome! How about a nice cookie dough fruit?  :snork_lach:

I understand people in tropical areas are sometimes killed by perfectly designed falling coconuts.

The article soberly reported on nine injuries in Papua New Guinea due to falling coconuts, none fatal. Barss notes that a coconut palm tree commonly reaches 25 meters in height, that a coconut can weigh two kilograms or more, and that a two-kilogram coconut falling 25 meters would have a velocity of 80 kilometers per hour on impact and a force of as much as 1,000 kilograms. Several victims suffered fractured skulls, were rendered comatose, etc.

The irony is that the natives of Papua New Guinea, the people who domesticated the wild banana 8,000 years ago, remain a primitive agricultural tribal civilization for the most part.  This isn't due to any lack of ingenuity or resourcefulness, mind you.  One of the reasons for this is that, due to their island's geography, their ONLY major crops are the banana and taro.  Both are fairly starchy, and low in protein, and they are much more difficult to cultivate and grow than crops such as wheat, barley, or rice.  As a result, the people must devote most of their time just to feed their population, which means there's very little room for them to advance technologically.  The islands also lack any suitable beasts of burden, so everything needs to be done by hand.

Therefore it looks like God has royally screwed over the New Guineans.  But hey, at least he gave them intelligently designed bananas.

I found another video refuting the argument from bananas!  This one appears to have been added recently:



Heh, pineapples and coconuts.  :Tounge:
