A Mature Discussion About Religion

(A father is washing dishes in the kitchen. His ten-year old son enters.)

Son: Father, why do atheists hate God?

Father:  Who told you that nonsense?

Son: Uncle Bob was talking about religion with Mother in the living room.

Father: (Lowers his voice) Son, your uncle is an idiot. Atheists do not hate God because you cannot hate something if you do not believe it exists.

Son:  So what are we supposed to believe about God?

Father: I can only tell you what I believe and I expect you to make up your own mind later. I believe in the God of Christianity, which is also said to be the God of Judaism and Islam.

Son: Then I choose to believe as you do.

Father: So be it.  But as you grow older and learn more, you may reconsider that view. If you do, no matter what you end up with, I assure you that I will always love you.

Son: Thanks, Father.
