    As I recall, and this was from a botany lecture 20 years ago, there are over 300 different varieties of bananas.

    The kind we get here in the states are called "desert" bananas and they are some of the slowest to ripen. The major problem with shipping any other kind is that they will be black and spoiled by the time they get here.

    I think if we have any South or Central American posters in here they could offer more information. The professor said that bananas are a mainstay of people diets in South America the way the wheat is here.
    People often tell me that I fail to see the gravity of the situation.
    I see the gravity, and I say...

    Step right up folks and watch me defy gravity!

    Correct, they are not technically trees. But, it's an herb which is anywhere from 7 to 28 feet tall.

    This video makes me angry. I feel like smashing bananas now. I don't want Godfood.

    One of the funniest papers I ever wrote for one of my religion courses was a paper titled: God, the Supreme Automaton. It basically, in my opinion, showed that if God did exist then he had absolutely no free will and was nothing more then a robot. Which pissed just about every single person in my class off including the teacher, but they couldn't debunk the arguement.

    To top that I quickly told them that Hitler was a better speaker then Jesus and they flipped out yet again. When asked how the hell I could say that, I promptly asked them if they have any recordings of Jesus speaking...
    Awesome.

    Folks, I seem to be the only openly christian person on this thread. Let me just say I don't agree with what that guy said or how far Kurt Cameron's carrier has fallen.

    Note: I'm not trying to pick on Christianity, I'm rather fond of it, just the video itself and the reasoning therein.

    Okay, back to the bananas.

    Oh, and I agree about how much it sucks that Kurt Cameron's carrier has tanked. Maybe a banana commercial would help...

    edit: I should say that I'm not personally trying to pick on Christianity. What ever anybody else wants to say, that's fine by me.

    If god is truly omnipotent then is it possible for him to create a shuriken so large that even he himself cannot throw it?

    I had a dream when Kurt Cameron's "Left Behind" movie came out that I was at a table with him and the cast of Growing Pains for some celebrity dinner. I made fun of him the entire night for being in that movie but he couldn't cuss back at me because he was Chrisitian.



    Oh, Shaolinz, please share your paper. I have a theology class this summer at a Jesuit college [long story] so I would like plenty of ammunition.

    Man

    What cracks me up is every single point a religious person makes in an arguement like this plays to support of niche based speciation as well. Two creatures adapted to each other is a phenomena well accounted for by evolutionary theory.

    MaverickZ, I like the way your mind works.

    KempoFist, the answer to that is easily "maybe?"




    Picking on clueless morons like the guy in the video is like when you were in kindergarten and threw rocks at the mongoloid. If he's commiting logical fallacies like this to try to prove his point he's got bigger problems than the fact that human beings are evidentally meant to eat bananas and not much else.

    And if you want something else for a good laugh, I present to you a direct quote from Dover, Pennsylvania pastor Ray Mummert during that town's debate on intelligent design: "We've been attacked by the intelligent, educated segment of the culture."

    That sums up any debate on religion better than I ever could hope to.
