My Dad said something disturbing to me today
My Dad believes that there is a lot of evil in the world. He told me that God doesn't want a lot of people hanging around for too long. Doesn't that just sound sickening? There are innocent people who aren't evil. Sometimes I just can't believe my Dad and what he believes. So does that mean that God doesn't want me to hang around for too long either? I don't believe in God but what my dad told me was disturbing. What are your thoughts?

I agree very disturbing. Sorry your dad feels that way. But I'm very glad despite that, you were able to get out from under all of that and bask in reality.

Well, if god doesn't want too many people to hang around for too long, he's not succeeding. There are more and more people all the time and they live longer and longer...

LOL, couldn't god sit on his throne on Mars? It's what Dr. Manhattan did:

That just sounds like a non-answer as to why people die prematurely.

If god(s) existed it might be more problematic.

Since they don't, maybe take it as a true beleiver's™ wishful thinking.

He probably doesn't mean *you* specifically.

It means there is no god and your dad would like to get rid of a lot of people that piss him off.

Remember:

It sounds a lot like his thoughts on his religion falls in line with how a Seventh Day Adventist thinks. Waiting for their Imaginary Friend to come take them away to a special happy place and destroy all the people he doesn't like....he your dad, not the he your dads imaginary friend!

Did you question him about that? Seem kind of bizarre to me. Nonsensical.
