An atheist and a cowboy end up sitting next to each other on a plane in this amusing short story. And when the atheist tries to dispute the presence of God, the cowboy knows exactly how to silence him!
Some travelers prefer to keep to themselves when flying alone. Others might rather converse with the stranger seated next to them. But what happens when those two passengers have diametrically opposed points of view about life?
This identical scenario is shown in a hilarious social media story about an atheist and a cowboy who plainly believes in God. Even though the story is made up, the punchline is true!
The story being shared on Facebook goes as follows: “An atheist was seated next to a dusty old cowboy on an airplane and he turned to him and said, ‘Do you want to talk? Flights go quicker if you strike up a conversation with your fellow passenger.’
The old cowboy, who had just started to read his book, replied to the total stranger, ‘What would you want to talk about?’ ‘Oh, I don’t know,’ said the atheist. ‘How about why there is no God, or no Heaven or Hell, or no life after death?’ as he smiled smugly.
‘Okay,’ he said. ‘Those could be interesting topics but let me ask you a question first. A horse, a cow, and a deer all eat the same stuff – grass. Yet a deer excretes little pellets, while a cow turns out a flat patty, but a horse produces clumps. Why do you suppose that is?’
The atheist, visibly surprised by the old cowboy’s intelligence, thinks about it and says, ‘Hmmm, I have no idea.’ To which the cowboy replies, ‘Do you really feel qualified to discuss God, Heaven and Hell, or life after death, when you don’t know crap?’” We hope this funny story brightened your day. Be sure to share the atheist and cowboy joke with someone who could use a smile!
