Is there GOD?

Recommended Posts

Well tbh im a big follower of the atheist movement, i have unspoken and indescribable respect and love for people like Sam Harris, Christopher Hitchens Dan Dannet, Richard dawkins, who speak up for reason and the scientific method, you on the other hand i wouldn’t call i quote "most logically thinking person that i know of" due to the statements i made, which were not answered due to i think, not wanting to give it anytime, because you are stuck in your way of thinking.

i dont know what statements you made that were not answered. i would be happy to answer them. please ask again. i had a lot of replies to make to many people so i just started, it is possible some questions put to me were not answered.

Appreciate the time, what we can say is all religions are based on faith, but Guru Nanak jee Sikhi is different it’s based on falsifiability, let’s leave aside of all the implication, from why did it take so long to surface, or why so little amount of people this truth is available, this is about the claims of Truth and shouldn’t supersede this yet.

According to Guru Nanak dev jee the God claim can be proven now the leap of faith is will you spend a short amount of your time to follow what is laid out for you to realise God is real. I will lay out how we do this and what you expect to find.,

Geo: "So would you say that the followers of the Abrahamic religions are wrong given that there is only one god and therefor only one definition?"

@Geo

There is only one God, but there are more than one definition.

So Sikhs would continue to follow something that was written 500 years ago in North India.

Wow, how does that make Sikhs any different to Muslims following Islam, which is from the middle east.

Copernicus concluded that the earth revolves around the Sun over 500 years ago.

Why do we still believe in that?

Because that is the fact and science has proved it.

But you still not have answered, why would you follow something, which was written 500 years ago and completely base your life around these teaching.

So if something is old, then we cannot follow it?

Democracy was invented by the Greeks over 2,000 years ago, but we still follow that.

Democracy has evolved with time, democracy is an idea, its has no set ways. Democracy does not dictate on what to wear and what to eat.

So my question again, why would you follow scriptures that were written 500 years ago and completely base your life decisions on?

because it is true, it is provable again and again. the proof is there for everyone to see. and no one disputes this proof. no one disputes the fact that the earth orbits the sun.

the "facts" of religions are disputed by the majority of people.

the facts of christianity are disputed by all other religions and people of non beliefs including many "christian" non believers who were born into christian families

the facts of islam are disputed by everyone else

the facts of sikhism are disputed by a huge number of people because sikhs number so few compared to the world population.

How has the idea of democracy changed? Doesn't it mean rule by the people?

I don't understand the question you are repeating. Are you saying that if something is old, it shouldn't be followed?

Why are we speaking English then? It's so old. Why don't we come up with a new language?

the facts of sikhism are disputed by a huge number of people because sikhs number so few compared to the world population.

Which facts of Sikhism are they disputing?

and there have evolved many different democratic ways and these are debated every second of every day at some point in the world or another. there is no one place that decrees what democracy is and how we all must follow the one true way. (although the americans like to try :) )

well someone earlier said that gurbani is the way to god, or perhaps naam is the way to god or enlightenment - well this would be hotly disputed by christians who believe the way to god is through jesus christ. sikhism states there is one god, hindus appear to have many gods and godesses (this may be disputed)

So which religion is the America of the bunch? I think I know...haha.

Democracy would be hotly disputed by Communists.

What's up with that?

as i stated above there are different methods of democracy it is constantly evolving. there are different methods of voting (first past the post/ proportional representation)

there are varying amounts of decisions made by a voted parliament vs referendums for everything. some are constitutional monarchies some are republics some are not properly democratic (votes are rigged,intimidation,bribes)

english has been evolving as has virtually every language, new words are added, some are forgotten, slangs are invented, regional words and pronunciations. we would hardly recognise english as spoken when first invented. it has many influences taken from latin,spanish,french,german,italian. it is not a set of rules designed to govern your life - it is simply a language.

your points lack validity.

You mean like the evolution of many different religions?

So which religion is the America of the bunch? I think I know...haha.

do you mean the evolution of many types of religion? (strictly speaking it would be birth or invention) or do you mean the evolution of the each religions, meaning the ways they have changed and adapted?

yes it would, it would be disputed that it is wrong or right. its existence would not be disputed. other religions dispute the existence of other types of god and be extension the relevance of other religions.

      Hi, I am an avid road cyclist. For cycling seriously you have to wear padded shorts or bib shorts, they look something like this: https://podia.cc/shop/club-bib-shorts-regular/ These are not ordinary shorts. They are padded and they allow you to sit for long hours on the saddle, without them cycling for long distances is impossible. Forget even short distances. Therefore, wearing kacherra is not possible. Can the bib shorts be considered a substitute kacchera if wore one leg in and out. Also wearing kirpan, kungha is not possible while cycling. Well kungha might be possible. However, you do need to wear a helmet to take part in cycling events. I'd like to know if it is possible to even continue with cycling while being amritdhari. When I say cycling I am not talking about the casual neighbourhood rider. I am talking about serious cycling with professional gear. Best,
    • Its hard being a bystander to someone else'stragedy.  Theres no right thing to do or say or to help.  You dont want to pry or bring up sad kemories and make them cry. You also cant crack a joke or talk about the weather, its callous. Being silent is awkward.  Like at a funeral, what can you say? So civilized ppl are smart, they came up with ritualistic words that can ease the awkwardness and keep things moving along. I think its great. If someone is sick. I can say i hope you feel better and you can move away. If someones relatives died you can say Im so sorry to hear about your grandma. If you meet someone, Hello Nice to meet you.  For a mildly autistic or atleast socially impaired person, these phrases r a god send. They let me know the right thing to say and express with my facial expression as well. It really makes socializing easier, i have a blueprint for every occurence. And then i can ask them what i need and go on my way. Without endlessly agonising how do i approach a grieving person, will asking them for a favor now be callous etc    
    • This is a good idea. Ive thought of something similar.  Sangat is divided by area and jatha/affiliations. So the akj in toronto get 5 representatives as do taksalis, nihangs, nanksariye, missionary, and 1 miscellaneous in toronto. And akj, taksali etc in BC will have their own 5 representatives.  So to make decisions for toronto, each group will choose 1 of their panj(the jathedaar) to make the city wide panj. As they will be from different jathas, but each jatha has representation, what ever they decide applies to every jatha.  And then the state or province panj will be made when the ecity panj each choose one from within them to be jathedaar and represent them in state council. The fact that the different sects have to choose someone they all agree will represent them will hopefully make them chose the best character, honest, kamaii wale persons. And every jatha will sent their best as they would want their representative to be chosen as the jathedaar.   Similarily nationally, all the states have to choose the best 5 to send to national council.  And the national council will choose the best 5 to send to the international council. I dont know if that makes sense 
    • 100 percent truth right here. i watched a long interview a while back on  a former police detective in the UK who was investigating this crap in the 70s. those cases didnt involve ethnic men but whites and he was told to stop investigating immediatley. i think the reason they doing this now is cos the pakistanis r visible minority easier for english masses to scape goat well turning blind eye to the ones who profit most from this the ppl sitting at top
