An atheist was taking a walk through the woods, admiring all that the
"accident of evolution" had created.
"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 charge towards him. He ran as fast as he could
up the path. He looked over his shoulder and saw that the bear was
He ran even faster, so scared that tears were coming to his eyes. He
looked over his shoulder again, and the bear was even closer. 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;
right on top of him; reaching for him with his left paw and raising his
right paw to strike him.

At that instant 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 his predicament? Am I to count you as a believer?"

The atheist looked directly into the light "it would be hypocritical to
ask to be a Christian after all these years, 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 
ogether...bowed his head and spoke:

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