Cameron is most famous for his banana argument which he heralded as "The Atheists Worst Nightmare". In this scene with Ray Comfort, he takes a banana and demonstrates the properties that show that it is the perfect food created by God for humans. He demonstrates that the peel is non-slip, its ridges fit perfectly to those in human hands for easy gripping, it has a "pop-cap" for easy peeling and is therefore designed by an intelligent designer i.e. God.
 
  
What Cameron utterly fails to grasp is the fact that he is demonstrating the properties of a domesticated banana. What that means is the banana we have come to know and love has been selectively bred and manipulated to have those properties. Therefore, all Kirk Cameron succeeded in proving was the fact that he had not researched anything and demonstrated a "theory" which he must have come up with 5 minutes prior to the segment with no basic understanding of what he was saying

Today he is an ardent apologist, appearing in the movie version of Left Behind, and hosting The Way of the Master with Ray Comfort. Kirk also starred in the movie Fireproof in which he portrays a firefighter who, during marital struggles, follows his father's suggestion to turn to God and the Bible to try to save the marriage.
