Peanut Butter and Bananas ... Yum!


There is a new entry in the "How to Turn Food Into Arguments for God" Sweepstakes. The ever popular and ridiculous Ray Comfort opened the contest with his Argumentum ad Bananae:

Now Chuck Missler has countered with peanut butter:

It seems that Chuckie thinks that if abiogenesis is right, there should be new life popping out of every food jar.

Now, of course, we don't have any good handle on how the first life arose but the processing our food undergoes is pretty well designed to make sure that the possible set of conditions (that have occurred to us so far) that could have lead to life would not be present in our foodstuffs. Even if some new life form arose now, it would have to contend with other life forms, which have had a billion or two years evolutionary head start, that would find the new guy on the block both tasty and incredibly defenseless. None of this bears on the massive evidence we have that life, once it arose, has evolved.

But, hey! When have creationists ever let ignorance stop them?

Didn't Colbert tell Dawkins that Reese's Peanut Butter Cups were proof of the existence of God?
I don't know about the peanut butter part of them, but Wilkins will tell you that chocolate is the best philosophical argument for God.
Sorry, not new. I'm sure I saw that Missler vid (or one very like it) on the order of two years ago.
bananas and peanut butter? crazy thoughts. but!: i don't like either the one nor the other. ban them, eat them, burn them - no matter what...nice thoughts by the way, did i already mention!? ;)
These examples don't include the best proof--images of the Mother-of-God appearing on French Toast and potato chips, or His Noodly Theophany in my bowl of spaghetti.
My personal favorite was when Jesus decided to appear on a dog's butt.
