The Atheist

An atheist was walking through the woods one day in Alaska, admiring all that evolution had created. "What majestic trees! What a powerful river! What beautiful animals!" He said to himself. As he was walking alongside the river, he heard a rustling in the bushes behind him. Turning to look, he saw a 13 foot Kodiak Brown Bear beginning to charge toward him. He ran as fast as he could down the path. He looked over his shoulder and saw that the bear was rapidly closing on him. Somehow, he ran even faster, so scared that tears came to his eyes. He looked again & the bear was even closer. His heart pounding in his chest, he tried to run faster yet. But alas, he tripped and fell to the ground.
As he rolled over to pick himself up, the bear was right over him, reaching for him with it's left paw and raising it's right paw to strike him....he yelled out, "Oh my God!"
Time stopped....
The bear froze.....
The forest was silent....
Even the river stopped moving.....
As a brilliant light shone upon the man, a thunderous voice came from all around,
GOD SPOKE:
"YOU DENY MY EXISTENCE FOR ALL THESE YEARS, TEACH OTHERS THAT I DON'T EXIST AND EVEN CREDIT CREATION TO SOME COSMIC ACCIDENT. DO YOU EXPECT ME TO HELP YOU OUT OF THE PREDICAMENT? AM I TO COUNT YOU NOW AS A BELIEVER?"
Difficult as it was, the atheist looked directly into the light & said, "It would be hypocritical to ask to be a Christian after all these years, but perhaps you could make the bear a Christian?"
"VERY WELL," SAID GOD.
The light went out....
The river ran....
The sound of the forest resumed....
And the bear dropped down on his knees, brought both paws together,
Bowed his head and spoke: "Lord, thank you for this food which I am about to receive, Amen".
