    They used to - before SIN ENTERED THE WORLD!!!! 😲

    And God said unto them, "Fine, if you like apples so much, then cursed art the watermelons for thy sake; in the heat of the sun shalt thou toil to carry their unwieldy shape."

    Thats because God made them for Dodos to eat. (Ice Age - the movie).

    it would appear to me that if the shape of the human hand has ANYTHING to do with the shape of a banana, it is because we once were apes. it is likely that the apes hand evolved to grow a thumb so it could grasp things such as bananas and tree branches. it's a chicken and egg thing, the banana was not made to fit it's consumer, that would make no sense; the hand was made to fit the banana.

    So, our hands will eventually be large enough to carry watermelons?

    i don't see that happening. it would seem to me that we are primarily evolving intellectually because of our innovations in technology, we don't need to evolve physically.
    edit: there may or may not be evidence for this, it's just a hypothesis i pulled out of my rear end.

    You are incorrect. Many fruit evolve specifically for the purpose of seed dispersal via consumers and thus do evolve to fit the consumers needs.
    However, bananas are eaten in the wild by a wild variety of animals including birds, elephants and monkeys. I don't see them as particularly suited to humans.

    Fruit generally are a dispersal method in their own right. The flesh of a fruit is the ovary wall of the plant (the little star thing at the bottom of most fruits was the flower). The flesh can be simply used to provide nutrients for the developing seed, yet often it is eaten by, for example, small mammals, which eat the fruit (and the seed), move somewhere else, then deficate the seed out. Thus the seed is dispersed in a new location, with a handy source of nutrients.

    All right, that comes across as a little desperate. There are a billion ways one can prove God does not exist without having to go to the produce section at Giant Eagle.

    EV is making a parody of a Creationist video which claims that bananas prove the existence of God (of course, bananas are not natural - they were bred to their present form by humans).

    To a certain extent. Bananas certainly never existed naturally as large as the usual variety is now. However, some smaller bananas are still being bred. Truth is, there are hundreds of species of edible banana, and most people are only exposed to one or two, not counting plantains.
