Is there GOD?

Recommended Posts

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.

following on from this, it is widely accepted that communism is a failed idea. hardly anywhere in the world is communist now, cuba and north korea being the exceptions and they are not doing too well. im quite sure that their people would vote for democracy if they had the chance.

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.

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?

So there are different branches of democracy? Do they all stay true to the definition of democracy (rule by the people)? If not then they are not democracies.

Is it like Judaism and Islam being derived from the sons of Abraham? Christianity coming from Judaism?

Maybe like Sikhism, Buddhism and Jainism having their roots in Hinduism?

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.

Which religion disputes the existence of another type of God?

every religion that claims theirs is the only way. automatically rejecting other religions and by extension all other gods.

Like how the Aztec religion is a failed idea, right?

I bet the natives are happy there are no more human sacrifices!

Lol.

Well there are other ways. There is just disagreement on which way is right.

Just like the various branches of democracy disagree on which is the right method of governance.

democracy is an idea, there is nothing to dispute its existence. religions are doctrines with nothing to support their main objective - none of them provide any proof that god exists.

yes there are many failed religions as i mentioned earlier in my posts. no one worships zeus or Ra or apollo anymore. but at the time, there would have been many followers. in time there will be no followers of the current religions and either new ones will have taken their place or religion will have mostly died out. on the whole religious beliefs are decreasing world wide unfortunately they are not always being replaced by something positive.

yes they disagree and one might say that our way will increase your wealth by 3% per year or another might say our way will improve your health service. they DONT say unless you follow our way you are going to hell and we are going to heaven :)

night night. to be continued tomorrow. my head hurts - maybe i should meditate :)

So how would you go about proving God's existence, or lack there of?

So religion needs followers to exist? What if there was only one person who practiced the faith? Would it still exist?

Tylenol should do the trick for your headache.

One more thing: Sikhism's holy book "Guru Granth Sahib" contains writings of Hindus and Muslims. They can't be rotting in hell if they are in our holy book, right?

Good night.

Gurbani teaches us one thing that is important "God is Truth, he is ultimate truth, in every created thing/being". Comparing Gurbani with other holy books Quran, Bible or any other holy book, prior to that we need to look what gurbani says about people of other religion. It clearly emphasis for every one of any religion there is no middle man between u and god, Guru is the guide which will guide you the path and gurbani does so. Every individual, be that be of any religion christian, muslim, hindu or anyone can be merged with god, condition : remember god, be truthful, honest, hard working, loyal to your relations with your family i.e. good husband,father,son etc. Be Truth. These relations should be taken as responsibility given by god. Simple example is If you want to be a doctor there is only one way.

then are other methods wrong?

if that is the right way, then are other ways wrong ways?

so what is the point of leading a good life? what is the point of following all the rules and being pure of thought? what do you get? extra heaven?

Read and understand Japji Sahib and Sukhmani Sahib. Until then don't bother to reply.

doesnt it seem amazing to you sikhs that you are a part of this amazing and very, very exclusive religion and only the very best of you have a chance of getting to heaven? it must be pretty quiet up there given the restrictive entrance requirements.

I haven't checked it out how it is up there.

does that mean nothing that is said anywhere else can be true? you have avoided answering the point because you know that both answers are ridiculous.

No, you are the one avoiding all my questions and refusing to read or learn anything suggested to you before you ask your next question. If you don't bother about what is being told to you, why would anyone bother about your opinion either?

i cannot take that challenge. i cant read punjabi and i dont have the time. i am happy with life, i have no problems that cannot be solved. i dont need answers to the meaning of life and since i dont believe in the after life or heaven or hell, i have no need to read the manual which gets me there. you know very little of my brain, i dont know how you can reach your conclusions. i am by far the most logically thinking person that i know of personally.

That tells a lot about you, your viewpoint, and exposes the reason for 24 pages worth of entertainment for yourself and wasting other people's time. If thats the kind of attitude and arrogance you have then you can go ahead and believe whatever you want to believe it. No one here will be bothered to entertain you anymore than they already have.
