Banana Man

First, The Infamous Banana Man


Banana Man (Ray Comfort) desperately wants to debate Richard Dawkins, and has even offered to pay him $10,000. Dawkins has a counter-offer: he'll do it for $100,000, to be donated to the RDF. Banana Man (Comfort) has now upped the ante to $20,000. It's not enough.

I would encourage teams of creationist philanthropists to get together, scrape up the $100K, and pass it along to Banana Man (Comfort), who will then deposit it in the coffers of the Richard Dawkins Foundation. Not only would creationists have finally done something productive and contributed to the promulgation of reason for once, but the spectacle of this debate would be a source of endless hilarity for years to come.

Richard does have a few other requests: that Banana Man (Comfort) reprise his banana argument, and that the event would have to be recorded by the RDF team, for the enlightenment of the world. It's not too much to ask.
