    Default The Atheist's Worst Nightmare: The Banana

    I noticed there's a "head to head" news show on this week (I think it's ABC), with Kirk Cameron and some Christian pastor arguing with two atheists about whether God exists.

    Aside from Kirk Cameron, the concept sounded interesting... but I hope it's better than this video clip I found.

    Criticism/comments?

One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    I have to confess that I sent that link to a lot of people after seeing it for the first time a while ago. I thought it was an absolutely brilliant parody. I only found out recently that it was serious.
    JBS Haldane's Four Stages of Scientific Theories:

    1. This is worthless nonsense.
    2. This is an interesting, but perverse, point of view.
    3. This is true, but quite unimportant.
    4. I always said so.

    Yeah, that banana crap is the worst argument ever. What scares me is that it's so successful on certain types of people.

    On a semi-related note, I saw a drink today advertised as being "Bananatastic." More like "Bananacrappy" or "Bananagetthatthefuckawayfromme."

    There's nothing more gut-wrenching than the feeling of "Oh my god, they meant that."

    Something like that.

    Pathetic. Can we ever find a video of a Christian doing something intelligent?

    Hey, wait! I thought that was the "peanut butter" clip, not the banana cli...

    Oh my.

    And here I was figuring it would just be something about ID... which at least sounds more intelligent than the infamous "banana" strategy.

    It isn't intelligent, but I could make a video about how we know there is intelligent design because, no matter whether we are newborns or aged, our index fingers are always the right size to fit comfortably in our nostrils. Not only that, it is a clear sign that it is God's will that we pick our noses.

    Do it! You could start the next next internet viral video phenomenon! Your fame would culminate with a guest spot on the Benny Hinn Ministries show on TBN, or maybe even 700 Club.
