    Subject: THE ATHEIST


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

    As he continued walking alongside the river he heard a rustling in the
    bushes. Turning to look, he saw a 7 foot grizzly charging towards him.

    He ran as fast as he could up the path. Looking over his shoulder he saw that
    the bear was closing in on him. 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 raising his paw to take a swipe at him. At that instant the atheist
    cried out: "Oh my God!..."

    Time stopped.

    The bear froze.

    The forest was silent.

    It was then that a bright light shone upon the man and a voice came out of
    the sky saying: "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, could you make
    the BEAR a Christian?"

    "Very well," said the voice! . The light went out. And the sounds of the
    forest resumed.

    And then the bear lowered his paw, bowed his head and spoke:

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

    That reminds me of the story about two friends camping. A bear walks into their campsite and starts tearing up everything. One of the guys is about to run out of the tent when he notices his "friend" is putting on his shoes. The first guy yells, " You're crazy! You'll never outrun that bear!" His friend calmly replies, "I don't have to. I only have to outrun you."

    Hm.

    I think the companion joke to the atheist joke ends, "and the Christian said 'God save me!' just before the bear ate him."

    Shoe on the other foot, and all that...
