The Atheist

An atheist was taking a walk through the woods. "What
majestic trees! What powerful rivers! What beautiful animals!" he said
to himself.


As he continued walking alongside the river he heard a
rustling in the bushes. Turning to look, he saw a 7 foot grizzly
charging towards him.

He ran as fast as he could up the path. Looking over
his shoulder he saw that the bear was closing in on him. His heart was
pumping frantically 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 raising his paw to take a swipe at him.
at that instant the atheist cried out: "Oh my God.."

Time stopped.

The bear froze.

The forest was silent.

It was then that a bright light shone down upon the
man and a voice came out of the sky saying:

"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 a Christian now, but perhaps, could you make the BEAR a
Christian?"

"Very well," said the voice.

The light went out and the sounds of the forest resumed.

Then the bear lowered his paw, bowed his head and
spoke:

"Lord, bless this food which I am about to receive and
for which I am truly thankful. Amen."

If logic didn't went missing here so much it could be a good joke
