Show him all the reviews.
Show him all the youtube videos
Tell him that this game won GotY indie.
Tell him that OVER 9000 people have bought the game.
Tell him the following
"Look,i'm either spending this cash on minecraft or on prostitutes"

Ask him why he won't buy you it.
It's a safe, legal, virus free game if his worrying bout that.
Try letting him play the PC gamer or whatever demo.
Show him the reviews.
Do some work round your house to get the money.
Show him videos.

That'd be a problem.
His father may say "There's a freed demo,you can play it instead of the full game"

Yes But also the kid trying to get minecraft may say; "But dad you can only play it for 3 minecraft days then you have to buy it"

Just give him the money back in cash after he bought it for you. That way it will cost him nothing, so he wont have a reason to not buy it for you). Its your money, so you can do with it what you want, right?

Its not 9000 people, its over two million copies of the game sold O.O

Just prove that there is nothing that can go wrong if he buys it for you. Second, One of the best ways is to ask if you can help him with some work. Like for example: If your family is buildning something at home, a new addition to the house, a garage or something; Then just ask if you can help him with some of the hardwork.

People always suggest that when we get one of these "how can I convince my dad to buy me the game" threads.  The last thing you want to do is show a responsible parent this "wretched hive of scum and villainy".  j/k

How do you start a vote thing like on the nether update? Becuz so that we can make one here and THEN he'll think,
"Jeez, alot of ppl do play minecraft! Here you go son!" AND BOOM! :)  :SSSS:  :SSSS:  YOU GOT MINECRAFT!
If this is a good idea tell me how to make one of those vote thingy.

Give him two choices;

1. You'll give him the money and purchase the game safely and LEGALLY

2. You'll pirate the game then report HIM for 'stealing' it as I'd imagine your 'net connection is in his name.

He'll either buy you the game or punch you in the face!

Just show him that video. The moment the reference to lego comes up, he should understand.

Here's a different review as well.

It costs like $20.  Save up money, ask him to buy it, pay him back if he does.
Minecraft is a game about placing blocks to build anything you can imagine. (Source)

Anything built within Minecraft, using only Minecraft, without using bugs, is legit.
If you don't want to build mob traps, that's fine.  Just don't tell us it's cheating.

I hate when people use the wrong tool on a block, I'm just really annoyed by their ignorance :)

edit: oh and I disagree with minecraft being anything at all like WoW
