    An atheist was taking a walk through the woods. He said to himself: What majestic trees! What powerful rivers! What beautiful animals!"

    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 and saw that the bear was closing in on him. He looked over his shoulder again, and the bear was even closer. 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. 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 booming 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 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. The bear dropped his right paw, brought both paws together and bowed his head and spoke:

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