Q: The Semitic scriptures (Jewish, Christian, Islamic) speak of common events and incidents. Why does Sikhism deny Adam and Eve to be the first man and woman? Why did the Guru's fail to mention a catastrophic flood with encircled the whole earth, and left one family on a ship laden with animals? Christianity, Judaism and Islam all speak extensively about this. It's a bit of a big point to miss.

Why is the father of Monotheism- Abraham. Whom Jews, Christians, Muslims all respect and testify to his monotheism, nowhere to be mentioned in Sikhi?

Or how about the Prophet Jonah who was engulfed whole by a whale, then was released on God's command onto a beach after he prayed inside his belly. All the other faiths talk of this event.

These above are not little things but major events in the history of mankind. Come on, the flooding of the whole earth! A whole City destroyed in one go! Because if the books of these religions are flawed then it would certainly need mentioning in order to clarify doubts. Why would God contradict himself by then sending a totally different religion i.e. Sikhism?

A: This question is based on the premise that the Semitic religions are true and come from God. Sikhism rejects this assumption. On panna 1350, Satguru Granth Sahib tells us "Baed Kataeb kaho mat jhoothay jhootaa jo naa bichaarai" which means, "Call the Vedas and the Semitic scriptures FALSE teachings, false is that person who does not reflect". The shabad then goes on to highlight the hypocrisy of the Mullahs. Sikhi does not accept any other religion as being "true".


Guru Gobind Singh jee's baaNee in Sudha Savaiyay clearly state that he himself has looked at every religion (matt) of this world but has found none reaching Vaheguru Pranpatee. In the end he writes that since they lack the real love (ratee) for Vaheguru, they are not worth even a cent (rattee).

Is there any room for argument here? Guru Gobind Singh jee makes it clear to us that none of the religions of the world reach Vaheguru. He writes that only Gurmat reaches him.

Raam Rahim, Puran Koran, Anaek kahai matt, ek naa maniyo||
Simrit shaster bed sabhai, baho bhed kahai, hum ek naa janiyo||

Translation: Raam, Raheem, Puraans and Koran: there are many religions, but I do not accept any of them. Simritis, Shastras, Vedas, all say many different things, but I do not recognise any of them.

Does this not reject every holy book and religion of the world? What more do we have to say?

So, it goes without saying that the different events spoken of in the Semitic scriptures are not acknowledged in Sree Guru Granth Saahib. The Gurus lived in an Islamic environment with total exposure to Islam. They were aware of all these stories, but rejected them as myths. Is it credible that the entire human race began from one "Adam" and women were created from the rib of Adam? How can you create a human out of a rib? Does this make any sense whatsoever?? And Noah's Ark, which was the big boat you speak of. How can all the creatures of the earth fit into ONE boat? The survival of a species is based on its gene pool. Reducing a species to TWO totally destroys its chances of survival by killing of its genetic ability to adapt to new environments. This is scientifically IMPOSSIBLE and ILLOGICAL.

Jonah being swallowed whole by a whale: yes, of course. This is a great event in human history that simply begs to be recorded. Again, this event makes NO sense. It is a fairy tale.

Abraham is of no consequence to Sikhism, because the concept of God in Sikhism is much more profound and deep than that found in the Semitic faiths. Abraham was a human who made mistakes and I believe even cheated on his wife, so why would Sikhs revere him?

The Semitic scriptures are books of fables and myths, which of course are similar as each book was based on the one before it. The myths within these "scriptures" are not believable and many adherents of these religions now freely admit it and take all that is written as moral stories meant to give a lesson. If the Semitic faiths are indeed such great sources of world history, where are the mentions of the dinosaurs!? Surely that would be something that couldn't' be missed! Adam and Eve were the first beings and thus must have lived along with or before Dinosaurs, so why haven't your scriptures made any reference to them?

The Sikh faith is a divinely revealed faith which was given to mankind by Satguru Nanak. It does not match with the three Semitic faiths, simply because Sikhism does not consider them to be revealed by God. Sree Guru Granth Saahib is a scripture which reveals God to the soul. It does not attempt to be a history text book. You present the Semitic scriptures as being great sources of world history and I ask again: then why does it miss such important events like the Ice Age and the existence of dinosaurs?
