Bob was an atheist. One day he 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 Bob was walking alongside the river he heard a rustling in the bushes behind. As he turned to look, the atheist 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 closing in on him. He tried to run 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 as he tried to run even faster, but he tripped and fell on the ground. He rolled over to pick himself up and saw the bear right on top of him raising his paw to kill him.
At that instant Bob cried out, “Oh my God!”
Just then, time stopped. The bear froze. The forest was silent. The river even stopped moving. A bright light shone upon Bob. A voice came out of the sky saying, “You denied My existence all of these years, taught others I don’t exist and even credited My creation to a cosmic accident and now you expect Me to help you out of this predicament? Am I to count you as a believer?”
The ever so proud Bob looked into the light and said, “It would be rather hypocritical for me to ask to be a Christian after all these years, but please make the bear a Christian?”
“Very well,” said the voice.
The light went out, the river ran and the sounds of the forest continued. The bear backed off, sat on his haunches, put his paws together, bowed his head and prayed, “Dear Lord, I thank you for this food that I’m about to eat.”
