Dad TORE APART home inspection

So me and my partner are both 31 and just got a home inspection on a house we really want to buy.

The home inspector has 19 years of experience and was recommended to us by 2 people.

The biggest issue was the aluminum wiring..? As the house was built in 1971. This seemed like the largest issue, we are getting an electrics report/audit to see what they think. I know nothing about this and realtor saying it’s common in 70s houses and I have to decide if it’s something I’m comfortable with or not.

Here comes my big issue. I brought my dad on the home inspection because my partner was unable to come during work. The home inspector said the house seems sturdy/sound, but my dad is LOSING HIS ABSOLUTE MIND telling me not to buy the house because one of the floor joists in the basement had “been cut”. He is “Not sure how far up the cut went but there is a crappy repair job on either side of the joist with 2 pieces of plywood” that is probably not to code.

The home inspector didn’t mention anything about this, shrugged it off, didn’t seem worried. My dad losing his mind, saying inspector “missed it”, wants me to get a second opinion and basically telling me not to buy the property.

The only reason I’m asking Reddit is because I know nothing about this. How much of this is my dad being a dad – or does this sound like a legit point.
