    A wild banana:

    extremist nut realize real banana

    The banana that fits perfectly into Ray's... hand... was created by man. The irony BURNS.

    Man, I miss the Ray and Kirk comedy show...

    This is just silly.

    And disproven.

    Why can't you just let people believe or not believe what they want?

    Why attack athiests?

    Let's say that humans didn't breed the banana into that shape. It could have happened through evolution. If the banana's main form of seed dispersion was to be eaten and pooped out by primates, it would evolve to be more appealing to primates. That means it would taste better to primates, be easier for primates to hold, etc.

    But from a creationist's perspective, I doubt God made the banana into that shape so it could be held easily. That shape was designed for... other purposes.

    Sorry, but your 23-second video doesn't show them eating the bananas. It doesn't even show them picking any.

    The important fallacy of the argument is that it ignores the fact that the banana has been intelligently designed—by humans, through artificial selection. This is incredibly common for most, if not all, fruits, vegetables, and even animals that we use for food or to improve their utility to us. The banana was first domesticated around 8,000-9,000 years ago, probably in Papua New Guinea.[2] To say that bananas are naturally designed to be the perfect food for humans is, at best, wishful thinking.

    There is nothing natural about the banana as we know it today. The banana in the form that Comfort uses to illustrate his point is in fact an asexual clone quite different from its wild predecessors. It is only through human cultivation that it has managed to survive this complete lack of natural, sexual propagation. The wild banana, the predecessor of the cultivated fruit favorite, does reproduce sexually, pollinating their flowers in the usual way, and having the botanical equivalent of sex. These wild bananas are small, dry cacao-pod-looking things loaded with inedible seeds. The soft, yellow flesh of the edible varieties is the result of collective mutations cultivated thousands of years ago. But this selection has rendered the fruits of these plants completely sterile, and so unable to survive in a wild "natural" state.

    The Lord works in mysterious ways. How are they cultivated without being able to reproduce?

    Not really mysterious at all...once again science answers the call...
    All widely cultivated bananas today descend from the two wild bananas Musa acuminata and Musa balbisiana. While the original wild bananas contained large seeds, diploid or polyploid cultivars (some being hybrids) with tiny seeds are preferred for human raw fruit consumption.[57] These are propagated asexually from offshoots. The plant is allowed to produce two shoots at a time; a larger one for immediate fruiting and a smaller "sucker" or "follower" to produce fruit in 6–8 months. The life of a banana plantation is 25 years or longer, during which time the individual stools or planting sites may move slightly from their original positions as lateral rhizome formation dictates.[citation needed]

    Cultivated bananas are parthenocarpic, i.e. the flesh of the fruit swells and ripens without its seeds being fertilized and developing. Lacking viable seeds, propagation typically involves farmers removing and transplanting part of the underground stem (called a corm). Usually this is done by carefully removing a sucker (a vertical shoot that develops from the base of the banana pseudostem) with some roots intact. However, small sympodial corms, representing not yet elongated suckers, are easier to transplant and can be left out of the ground for up to two weeks; they require minimal care and can be shipped in bulk.[citation needed]
