      An atheist 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 he was walking alongside the river he heard a
      rustling in the bushes behind. As 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 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 he 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 the man, and a voice came out of the sky saying, "You
      deny my existence all of these years, teach others I don't exist and
      even credit my creation to a cosmic accident and now do you except me
      to help you out of this predicament? Am I to count you as a believer?"

      The atheist, ever so proud, looked into the light and said "it would be
      rather hypocritical to ask to be a Christian after all these years, but
      could you make the bear a Christian?" "Very well," said the voice. As
      the light went out, the river ran, the sounds of the forest continued
      and the bear put his paw down. The bear then brought both paws
      together, bowed his head and said, "Lord I thank you for this food which
      I am about to receive."
