  1. https://www.rt.com/viral/341617-new-planets-discovered-life/ Don't let the title to mislead you, but they found some 3 new Earth-sized planets which makes me curious and both excited as it feels like we are closer and closer to find life. What's Sikhism's view on life or "Aliens", I know that this is very stupid, but I am just curious because I believe that the Guru Granth mentioned about devotees on other planets.


  2. So my parents are really religious a long time ago when I was young they weren't religious, but they became religious since my dad got a job, but now my parents are really wacko religious. It's starting to annoy me a lot and I have to pray with them. What do I do? I don't want to cause an argument with my parents over this its just gone too far.


  3. First of all I am not leaving Sikhism, as I am proud of my faith. I am just wondering whats people's reaction when someone leaves their religion, like for example in Islam they kill people if they leave their religion while for Christians who had left their religion will go to hell? What about us? I know that Sikhism doesn't kill people or tells them that they will be punished, but still. What will happen to those who leave their faith?


  4. Why hasn't anyone stopped 3HO from doing all of their manmat? If someone is new to Sikhi wouldn't that soul get permanently lost or extremely delayed in their journey to Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji's message going to these people?

    3HO, is I guess a scam, they pay like what 300 bucks and its just annoying..


  5. I'm not saying the way the Crusaders protecting their religion was in the best way; however, they tried to protect it according to their understanding, (most of the fighters in the Crusades were poor Christian people who couldn't even read the Bible).

    That's what I meant!

    Religion isn't the cause for evil; it is simply an excuse to be bad.


  6. The Crusaders probably were right as their holy land was conquered by a foreign power, without the Crusades happening the Christians would basically be slaves to Muslims especially with Jerusalem being theirs.

    I mean during the Crusades that soldiers killed civilians in the name of "God". In attacks so many nut jobs claim they do it for "God" and it angers me. They are using God In a bad away and it's horrible, like ISIS, they killed innocent civilians for being different and they did it for' "God", but the funny thing is, most of Islam hates ISIS and considers them a disgrace.


  7. If the Mughals were just some random fighters, why would they make Shaheedis of the light of Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji in the forms of both Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Arjun Dev Ji and Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji? They clearly conquered the land for the purpose of spreading their religion.

    Look, I am just saying that people use religon for their advtange and use it for bad things. Then they get away and people will blame on religon. Like the Abortion shooting Colorado, they blamed it on Christaitinity for the shootings, however the shooter was some wacko, who was told by God. In wars some people do it cause they said it from God. Come on, are people that stupid to believe that guy. Pretty much, people use God for bad things.

  8. Look, not all Atheists are bad. Yeah, religions caused war, but its not religions fault, its the people. Like the Crusades, the Church aka the Pope made Christianity declare war on Islam and caused so much death. Also, there are some morons who say, " Don't believe in this religion, go to hell", that's not true, that person is a <banned word filter activated> and is making religion look like a joke. Its not religions fault for causing destruction, its the people who use religion as a scapegoat. Like if someone causes damage, he will just use religion to get away with it and people will blame it on the faith. For the Atheism part, not all Atheists are rude or anything like that. My best friend is an Atheist, but he is a really nice friend of mine. Yeah there are some Atheists that make fun of people for believing in god, its their point of view, we can't criticize them. There are some Atheists that say god is fake and that people who believe in god are stupid, these people are making people think that Atheism is a rude, but its not true. So basically, its not religions or irreligion s fault, its the people who act like morons and make their own beliefs look like a joke.


  9. No why would Sikhs hate, pretty strong word to use for someone who does not believe in a higher being, but what's that saying ' you don't find too many atheists in a death zone'!

    Eh, my parents should me some path and there was some guy at the gurdwara telling people that, " People who don't believe in god say they are happy, but they are not happy". He is saying that non believers are depressed people, but that's false.


  10. Addition:

    Some atheists are real jerks though. I've often heard them moaning that 'religion is root cause of all war'; but they ignorantly ignore the fact that race and economic issues and greed for resources are more often the root causes of war. Some atheists do have a tendency to try and lay blame for all of societies ills at the religion's door in a way that makes no sense.

    Well, how is it religions fault. Like the Crusades, it wasn't Christianities fault, it was the Pope and the Church. You see the Church used Christianity as a scapegoat and used it for war. Like come on the Church used indulgences which were pieces of paper which people payed to reduce the punishment people received for their sins. Its not religion's fault, it's the people. Some people like to use religion as a tool and get away with it and people will blame it on religion. 2, not all Atheists are bad, my friend is a Atheist and he is a nice guy. That's my view, however some people like Richard Dawkins are giving Atheism a bad name, he bashes religion and preaching Atheism like a religion as well.


  11. We all want to be happy deep down but we can search through different avenues to reach there , some paths can be successful other not so much , but first you have to consider what is happiness ? is it purely owning stuff, or is it dependent on others i.e. their treatment of us ? Is is earning a big name or fame ? If you boil it all down it all gets to a point where you realise you are searching for something outside of you to satisfy that internal need for peace (the silencing of that restlessness/the demanding nature inside for more experiences etc) .What Sikhi shows us is that peace was always there it's just that our minds haven't twigged yet. when we do prayer we connect with that inner peace via the multiverse conciousness/Waheguru , that is not to say you cannot reach realisation through other religions. When you deny the existence of Waheguru you kind of remove yourself from the paths which help you towards self-realisation so it is harder to achieve that higher level of happiness/peace. No sikhs don't hate atheists they accept all people are living out their karma and some people are destined to be atheiest, agnostic, nominally of a faith, deeply faithful or even saints according to their previous actions and actions of this life.

    Thank you so much!

  12. Today, my mother showed me some path on the tv and it showed this Sikh telling everyone in the gurdwara, that people who don't believe in God who say they are happy, but they actually not and they pretend. I guess he is saying that Atheism is bad? For Sikhism we don't discriminate people's beliefs, but for the path on the tv the guy is saying people who don't believe in God are unhappy. I asked my mom and she believed it, yet she told me that people can believe anything they want. I am so confused and I don't believe that stuff at all. It was on ATV, a Gurdwara Sahib Damesh Surrey, BC.
