Now I'm a believer?

    Picked up from another forum today:

    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. "

    Well, well, well, Peter. We've rediscovered our sense of humour. That is a truly funny joke. I will pass it on to all my friends.

    (Maybe the man should have been an Anglican ;))
