AITA for Creating a Universe Without Any Proof of My Existence and Then Punishing People for All Eternity if They Don’t Believe In Me?

My son (32M) and I have been arguing about this for ages. He says it’s unfair of me to require total unwavering belief without offering the slightest shred of evidence that I exist. I say he needs to stop blaming ME for other people’s suffering, despite the fact that I control the past, present, and future, that my will is all-encompassing, and that my plan cannot be deviated from.


Some background: my son lives at home, has no job, no wife, no kids, and is totally supported by me. Whenever I bring this up, he says it has nothing to do with what we’re talking about, and that I’m using ad hominem attacks to distract from the fact that I’m wrong.


NGL, it pisses me off because I am perfect in every way. When I told him that I literally am incapable of making mistakes, that any act perpetrated by me is by definition an infallible act, he rolled his eyes (kids! jfc) and said something about otters being rapists and a bunch of other woke nonsense. I told him to go to his room and he stomped away, calling me a boomer under his breath. Me! The Lord of all Creation!


Our conversation upset me so much that I sent a plague to decimate the human race. I’ll admit, I may have overreacted a little—but that was 700 years ago! Since then, I’ve been doing breathing exercises to help manage my explosive temper (every day is a practice, namaste). Once in a while, I slip up and let a few million die in a horrific act of genocide. But besides that, I’ve made nice progress.


I really want to resolve this argument with my son because it’s making life at home super tense. No matter how many times I tell him that faith requires having confidence in something you haven’t experienced with your senses, he won’t accept it. He says if that’s the case, then why did I give people the tool of reason, and make it essential to their advancement? I said that reason is good but it’s not a replacement for God’s Word, and he’s like, do you even hear yourself, Dad? Me me me!


He said I should make a post on reddit. I think I’m obviously in the right. I’m an all-powerful, all-knowing, immutable, perfectly good creator so I don’t see how I could possibly be wrong. But then again… AITA?
