The atheist looked directly into the light, and said, "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!"
What an odd answer by the atheist. Maybe he answered the way he did because he was scared as hell and couldn't think straight? I think that is how most atheist --> theist conversions work.
His correct answer of course should have been something along the lines of "Yes, I now have a reason to assume you exist, unlike before when I had absolutely no reason at all other than what other PEOPLE (people like myself) told me. Of course, it could still be that you are a figment of my imagination - maybe I bumped my head when I fell and am now unconscious - but currently I have no reason to assume that, so yeah, I suppose you are in fact real. Pleased to meet you." Would it be hypocritical of the man (of me, for that matter) to "believe" in God once he gets face to face with God who has just frozen time, Whodey?
It is worth noting that in real life this never happens. I could climb a large building, get onto the roof, spread my arms to the sky and shout "God! Please! Show me you exist!" and then jump off, and all that would happen is I would splatter to the ground. I could be chased by ten hungry bears, my whole family could be chased by 50 hungry bears, the world could be overrun by a massive amount of hungry bears and God would still not show up. No matter how hard you would scream "GOD!!!" right before a bear would bite off your right arm, God would still not show up. Try it, it will not happen! Have you got enough faith to try it? I don't think so.
Also, is it the Christian way to eat non-believers? How lovely.
Also, I am confused. Is it the man-eating monsterbear that is supposed to be a metaphor for Obama? Or is it the dirty, no good, lazy atheist scoundrel that is Obama? You should be a little bit more clear as to which of your villains is Obama.
