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.

He turned to look. He saw a 7-foot grizzly bear charge towards him.

He ran as fast as he could up the path. He looked over his shoulder & saw that the bear was closing in on him..

He looked over his shoulder again, & the bear was even closer.

He tripped & fell on the ground.

He rolled over to pick himself up but saw that the bear was right on top of him, reaching for him with his left paw & raising his right paw to strike him.

At that instant the Atheist cried out,
'Oh my God!'

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

As a bright light shone upon the man, a voice came out of the sky.

'You deny my existence for all these years, teach others I don't exist and even credit creation to 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 you could make the BEAR a Christian'?

'Very well,' said the voice.

The light went out. The sounds of the forest resumed. And the bear dropped his right paw, brought both paws together, bowed his head & spoke:

'Lord bless this food, which I am about to receive from thy bounty, Amen.'

LOL... nice one, B!

I guess the moral of this story is 'be careful about what you ask for, 'cause you might just get it'...

Just the thing I needed to wipe away a day's worth of work-related woe... :-)

An Atheist would never say that! So the joke is only playing to the righteous ears of Christians & theists. Invalid!

this atheist bugger thought that by asking the bear to become christian will prevent the bear from killing him,hahahahaha moral of the story don't ask favour or help from the person who hates you,you will end up being fooled around,e.g Palestinian asking help from USA to solve Israel occupation.

Oh wait, I have a good one. Why couldn't the christian stop preaching?
Because he was insecure.

p.s. An "pls enter your favorite label for a person who 'thinks for himself' or has different views, or any name that most comforts you", probably has come to terms with mortality and thus is at peace especially in such an event. He may cry, scream, and may most certainly be afraid, but he accepts life as it is, not as it should be.

This story is just like me..hahaha..At last we can laugh together as we look forward to have a peaceful Christmas.
I don't pray but i do wish that the polis nonsense towards JERIT will stop.
As we are about to close this year's chapter let's us hope and help the ISA detainees and their families.
Win the KT seat as a dedication to the ISA detainees and former detainees.

Good one zorro. Nothing like some cheers for Christmas. If he had ask God to turn the bear into a vegetarian, all he tend to lose would be the shirt on his back and the underwear that shielded him from the mosquitoes.

This is so funny. Nice to read some light-hearted humour once in a while, right! Breaks from the gloom and doom of reality news.

Take care, darling!

Dumb ! Dumb !

The atheist could have just ask God to make the bear a toothless, clawless, cuddly, vegetarian?

Say, did you hear about the one about the Mullah who asked God for some moolah to fund his operations? God told him to buy some health insurance.

Hahaha! good one Bernard.
