An atheist was out walking thru the woods one day when he happened upon a grizzly bear scatching himself on a tree. As soon as the atheist saw the bear the bear saw him and the chase was on. The atheist running as fast as he could kept glancing back and noticed the bear was slowly gaining on him. Then the obvious happened and the atheist tripped on some sticks and fell rolling on his back. He looked up and saw the bear right over him with his fangs showing and ready to clamp down on him, and the atheist yelled "oh God". Right then there was a flash of bright light and thunder, then time froze and the clouds parted.

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called the government. They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

As a hunter... I always been told you can't out run a bear.... so ...  all you got to do is out run your hunting partner!
