Joke: Atheist and a bear

An atheist was taking a walk through the woods, admiring all that
evolution had created.

"What majestic trees! What powerful rivers! What beautiful animals!", he

said to himself. As he was walking along the river, he heard a rustling
in the bushes behind him. When he turned to see what the casue was, he
saw a 7-foot grizzly charging right towards him. He ran as fast as he
could. He looked over his shoulder and saw that the bear was closing, He

ran even faster, crying in fear. He looked over his shoulder again, and
the bear was even closer. His heart was pounding and he tried to run
even faster. He tripped and fell on the ground. He rolled over to pick
himself up, but saw the bear right on top of him, reaching for him with
his left paw and raising his right paw to strike him.

At that moment, the Atheist cried out "Oh my God!...." Time stopped. The

bear froze. The forest was silent. Even the river stopped moving.

As a bright light shone upon the man, a voice came out of the sky, "You
deny my existence for all of these years; teach others I don''t exist;
and even credit creation to a cosmic accident. Do you expect me to help
you out of this predicament? Am I to count you as a believer?"

The atheist looked directly into the light "It would be hypocritical of
me to suddenly ask You to treat me as Christian now, but perhaps could
you make the bear a Christian?" "Very well," said the voice.

The light went out. The river ran again. And the sounds of the forest
resumed.

And then the bear dropped his right paw ..... brought both paws
together...bowed his head and spoke: "Lord, for this food which I am
about to receive, I am truly thankful."
