Sophie’s thoughts on God

Actual conversation with Sophie in the car yesterday:

Sophie: How did God make the world?

Me: Well, there are a lot of ideas about how the world was created. What do you think?

Sophie: I think God made all the plants and now he’s dead, but there are people to build everything else we need now.

Me: You think God is dead? Why?

Sophie: Because he was such an old man.

Me: Long diatribe about how God isn’t a person, doesn’t have a gender, isn’t dead, yadda yadda yadda.

Sophie: Well, when someone’s dead you can keep them in your heart. So that’s what I think we should do with God.
