Eric, a young bull rider, sees in a magazine about a huge bull that is so mean, no man has ever rode him in 10 years. He saw the photos and he wanted to see this bull for himself. So, he followed the magazine article to the town that owned the bull and right up to the front door of his keeper. A man answered the door and Eric told him why he was there. The man said “Well, son. I was about to go to church, so if you’d like to come along, afterwards I’ll show him to you.”
“Church?” Eric sneered. “No disrespect but there isn’t a god. There’s no evidence. Nobody’s ever seen him. It’s kind of stupid to believe something you read in a book, don’tcha think?”
The farmer thought a moment and said “Well, okay then. Get in the truck and I’ll take you to see that bull.”
The farmer drove Eric far out in the familiar field he saw in the magazine. Once they reached the center, the farmer stopped the truck and told Eric to get out, which he does. Then the farmer said “Start walking that way” he nodded with his head, “and about thirty minutes or so you’ll come to the church where I’ll be waiting. We’re having a big pot luck and your invited.”
Eric looked around wildly then said “Wait. You’re not going to leave me out here with that bull are you?!?”
The farmer looked around, shrugged and said “Well son, I don’t see any bull. Do you? Do you see any evidence that there is a bull out here or are you just taking it on faith because of what that magazine wrote? It’s kind of stupid to believe something you read in a book, don’tcha think?”
As he put the truck in gear, Erik ripped open the door and jumped back in, and asked to be taken back to his car.
