  • Simple Question for the Atheist

    Why are so many different types of food that grow from the earth so dang tasty?

    I would ask for clarification, but you'd just say "answer the question".

    Because it's been loaded to the point of collapse.
    The only thing I find more ridiculous than Christianity is the fact that so many people believe it.

      What would you like to see clarified? What is it loaded with?

        Do you mean

        1. Why does this food grow at all, or
        2. Why do we find it tasty

        ?

            Because not finding it tasty causes you to not eat it, and die.
            Not finding food tasty is naturally selected against.

              So who or what was motivated to protect us from dying?

                Natural selection has no motivation.
                Those unlucky enough not to find food tasty, die off.

                  Who or what naturally selected figs and several hundred other types of vegetation to so wonderfully fit our taste buds?

                    Did dinosaurs go extinct because food lost its taste?

                      Again, they don't fit our tastebuds; our tastebuds fit them.
                      And if they don't, we die.

                      Natural selection doesn't choose food for us; it gets rid of the us-es that don't like the plants and animals we eat, that would exist anyway.

                        A meterorite impact - and the ensuing global darkness and contamination - left them either with nothing to eat, or nothing they could eat.

                          You keep talking about selection. Who or what selected the taste of tomatoes to so wonderfully fit our palette? And what species went extinct because food stopped tasting good?

                            So not because food wasn't tasty.

                              I hate tomatoes.
                              Explain that one.

                              I think you think food was put here and made delicious for us, and that nothing will change this opinion.
                              Thus, I'm stopping here.
