    An atheist was walking through the woods.

    "What majestic trees!"
    "What powerful rivers!"
    "What beautiful animals!"
    He said to himself.

    As he was walking alongside the river, he heard a rustling in the bushes behind him.

    He turned to look.  He saw a 7-foot grizzly bear charge towards him.

    He ran as fast as he could up the path.  He looked over his shoulder & saw that the bear was closing in on him.

    He looked over his shoulder again, & the bear was even closer.

    He tripped & fell on the ground.

    He rolled over to pick himself up but saw that the bear was right on top of him, reaching for him with his left paw & raising his right paw to strike him.

    At that instant moment, the Atheist cried out:
    "Oh my God!"

    Time stopped.
    The bear froze.
    The forest was silent.

    As a bright light shone upon the man, a voice came out of the sky.

    "You deny my existence for all these years, teach others I don't exist and even credit creation to 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, and said:  "It would be hypocritical of me to suddenly ask you to treat me as a Christian now, but perhaps you could make the BEAR a Christian?"

    "Very well", said the voice.

    The light went out.  The sounds of the forest resumed.  And the bear dropped his right paw, brought both paws together, bowed his head & spoke:

    "Lord bless this food, which I am about to receive from Thy bounty through Christ our Lord, Amen."

    Cool!  This helps answer the old "Does a bear sh*t (an atheist perhaps) in the woods?" question.  smile
