I Got Yer Intelligent Design Right Here, Baby…

This is the funniest thing I’ve seen all week. (And it’s about both sex and atheism, which makes it an extra-special treat.)

No, it’s not the video. Although the video is hilarious, in an appalling “Holy crap, do people really believe this?” sort of way. But you have to watch the video to get the joke. (It’s only about a minute, and it really is quite entertaining. Video below the fold.)

Believe it or not, that’s not the joke. The joke is this comment by Imagine AZ on the Richard Dawkins website (where I found this gem via Pharyngula):

“Now, what I’m doing now is dropping my pants and bending over. Now, look at that. Notice that my anal opening is round and roughly the width of your penis. Go ahead and show them. Stick your penis in my anus. There. See how perfectly that fits? Also notice that my anal cavity goes deep enough to take the whole shaft. Go ahead and show them how you can repeatedly move your penis in and out. Good. See how perfectly that fits?”

My own comment was reasonably funny, along the lines of how thoughtful it was for God to create such a perfect food for humans… and then put it in a remote part of the world where it would be inaccessible to the majority of people around the world for most of human history. And in a somewhat more serious vein, other people have mentioned obvious counter-examples like the coconut, and have pointed out that the bananas we eat have been domesticated and bred by human farmers over thousands of years, and wild bananas are kind of a pain in the neck with a lot of seeds and not much fruit. But Imagine AZ has had me chuckling all week.

(Oh, BTW: The peanut butter video is pretty damn hilarious, too.)

    That is why I love gay men. I never would have thought of that in a million years, but it’s just the perfect comeback!
    I hope it’s safe to assume it was a gay man who wrote that. If not then I guess I’d be even more impressed.

    After reading this I think I need to have a banana and peanut butter sandwich right now! I feel so evolved!

    Is this for real? The banana guy really doen’t know how he’s perceived by non-beievers? He really believes this? And the peanut butter guy? I’m just gobsmacked that they can do this with a straight face.
    I’d have to laugh if it weren’t so fucking frightening and enraging. To think that folks like this are in charge of anything, much less the government and its institutions, just makes my head spin. It just boggles the mind. What non-”arguments” they put out there.
    Love the anal sex comeback, btw. Penises really DO fit well into anuses, I’ve found, as well as the occasional dildo. So well, in fact, that one might think they’d been designed for that very purpose!

    And God gave men balls to keep the dick from slamming too far up the buttcrack! We’re not worthy, we’re not worthy!

    The videos are fantastic. Five years ago, when I lived in Canada, I would have found them hilarious.
    I’ve spent the last five years living in small town Indiana and Ohio. I presently live about 30 minutes from the “museum” of creation.
    It is NOT funny anymore. Religion is a serious problem in America. It is mental poison, well packaged for children. To me, watching this poor man explain his banana theory is like watching a Parkinson’s patient slur his words. At least Parkinson’s leaves you a chance to really use your mind for a few years. This banana guy… I have only pity for a mind reduced to such mush.
