    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 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, "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."

    No, I was on another site and someone wanted us to tell a joke. I couldn't think of any but another lady said this one and I loved it.

    Funny, but I can't help but feel as if there's a subtle message against atheism in there.
