Ray Comfort and The Evolution of the Banana

For those who are not familiar with the background of this video I wanted to highlight something very critical other than the typical ridicule and silliness of it.  That Ray Comfort is using a banana (The atheist nightmare) as proof of God and a divine creator.  I myself find this to be odd, considering that the Banana is actually a well documented case of proof for evolution.  That 

The yellow banana is a well documented case of evolution and it how it has affected agriculture.  The yellow Banana has not always been around, It is actually a mutation of the green banana.  There are still green and red bananas around that have to be cooked to eat. The taste and the cooking of those early bananas are well documented in history of how they were used and cultivated.  Even the early wild banana was harvested and used in the ancient commercial industry.

The early Spanish explorers introduced banana plants into America around 1500 from Spain as a hardcore, large cooking banana, known as a Plantain banana. The amazing yellow fresh eating banana, that we know today sold by supermarkets, resulted from a mutation from the hardcore tissues of the parent plantain banana plant, that was then growing in Jamaica.  There in Jamaica in 1836 Jean Francois Poujot, a commercial business farmer found in his banana plantation a banana plant that had been producing soft & sweet tasty flavor unlike no other with a more yellowish skin pigment than all the others.  Being a smart and savvy businessman, he sectioned off his farm for the new funny looking yellow banana.  And thus expanded the banana market to include this new delicious yellow banana.

About M. Rodriguez

When I first received Christ salvation, I made it a priority to read the whole bible and I did. But it was the Bible that made me question my faith. For I found it flawed and lacking. Due to this I launched a personal inquiry/investigation into my faith, and ultimately realized that the Christian God of the Bible was indeed man-made. Now I Blog about those findings and life after Christ.

    I’m embarrassed for him. He doesn’t even seem to know how stupid his ideas are.

  2. Its an interesting but little known fact that most of the food we eat today was originally poisonous in the wild. This includes staples like wheat, which took generations of evolution of breeding before becoming safely edible.
