Talking OT: "The Athiest and the Bear"

An atheist was walking through the woods one day, admiring all that evolution had created. "What majestic trees! What a powerful river! What beautiful animals!" he said to himself. As he was walking alongside the river, he heard a rustling in the bushes behind him. Turning to look, he saw a 8 foot grizzly bear
beginning to charge towards him.

He ran as fast as he could down the path. He looked over his shoulder and saw that the bear was rapidly closing on him. Somehow, he ran even faster, so scared that tears came to his eyes.

He looked again and the bear was even closer. His heart pounding in his chest, he tried to run faster yet. But alas, he tripped and fell to the ground. As he rolled over to pick himself up, the bear was right over him, reaching for him with its left paw and raising its right paw to strike him.

Time stopped.


The bear froze.


The forest was silent.


Even the river stopped moving ...


As a brilliant light shone upon the man, a thunderous voice came from all around,

"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 Predictament?

Am I To Count You As A Believer???"

Difficult as it was, the atheist looked directly into the light and said, "It would be hypocritical to ask to be a Christian after all these years, but perhaps you could make the bear a Christian?"

"Very Well." said The Voice.

The light went out.

The river ran.

The sounds of the forest resumed.


.... and the bear dropped down on his knees, brought both paws together, bowed his head and spoke:


"Lord, thank you for this food which I am about to receive."

Supercrash and everyone.
I just feel compelled to respond on this one. I posted up a few smilies because I thought it was funny; as a joke.

SC, your smilies are appropriate, but I hope you can see that your comments are off-color. This is a free county at the moment, but this board is not about off-color remarks. Nothing else like that exists on this board.

RT, maybe you can just delete the the thread, and repost it, and no one will poop in the punchbowl.

RT knows me better than anyone else on this board...he knows that I appreciate a joke more than anyone (This one rates a .25, sorry). I didn't want to "poop" on anything. 4 kids died 2 days ago here in Dallas in a bus crash as they were on their way to "church camp." I don't appreciate making light of that kind of situation. Making a hurtful comment is not justified by placing a " " after it.

BTW...with regard to your "list," are you going to put me in "Time out" too?
