An Aetheist In The Woods

Thursday, November 01, 2018

An atheist was walking through the woods. 'What majestic trees!' 'What powerful rivers!' What beautiful animals!' he said to himself. Suddenly, he heard a rustling in the bushes behind him.

He turned around and saw an 8-foot grizzly bear charging towards him. The atheist ran as fast as he could away from the grizz. He looked over his shoulder only to see the grizz was getting nearer. He again looked over his shoulder only to see the grizz almost upon him.

And then, he tripped and fell. On trying to recover, the grizz reached forward with his left paw ready to strike. At that instant, the atheist cried out: 'OH MY GOD!'

Time stopped. The bear froze. The forest was silent

A bright light shone down on the dis-believer and a voice came out of the sky.

'You deny my existence for all these years, you teach others I do not exist and even credit creation to cosmic accident. Do you expect me to help you out of your 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 GRIZZ a Christian?'…… a pause ……

The light went out. The sounds of the forest resumed and the grizz dropped his paw.

The grizz then bought both his paws together, bowed his head and softly spoke.
