    An atheist was walking through the woods... when he stopped and thought:

    "What majestic trees! What powerful rivers! What beautiful animals!" the
    atheist said to himself.

    Then, 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 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 that the
    bear was 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.

    As a bright light shone upon the man, a voice came out of the sky... "You
    deny my existence for all these years... and try to 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 now count you as a believer?"

    The atheist looked directly into the light, "Well, 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 God.

    The light went out. The sounds of the forest resumed. And the bear dropped
    his right paw, brought both paws together, bowed his head and spoke:

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