Atheism In The Woods

Grizzly Bear

An atheist was walking through the woods…

“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 him. When he turned, he saw a 7-foot grizzly bear charging toward him!

He started to run as fast as he could, but realized the bear was closing in on him.

Then, he tripped and fell to the ground. When he rolled over the bear was right on top of him, raising his paw to strike him. At that instant the Atheist cried out, “Oh my God!”

Time Stopped! The bear froze. The forest was silent.

Jesus LightThen, a bright light shone upon the man, and a voice said, “You deny my existence for all these years, teach others that I don’t exist, and even credit creation to some cosmic ‘accident’. Do you expect me to help you out of this predicament? Can I count on 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. Then the bear brought both paws together, bowed his head and said…

“Blesss us, O Lord, for these Thy gifts, which we are about to receive, through Thy bounty, through Christ the Lord, Amen.”

    Mr Skinner,
    Let Mr. Colbert know about the four maulings that happened within the Anchorage city limits last summer. If he is trying to imply bears do not pose much of a threat, I would like to see if he changes his mind after one day of fishing in the Chugiak National Park where every other fisherman (at least) is packing heat.

    The joke was that bears are posed to take over [i] this very nation[/i]. I have no doubt bears are dangerous but they are not the number one threat faciing the nation.

    Note 27 deaths in the 2000s which means that they are around the lethality of sharks, but less than that of almost anything else.
