All the Revealed Faiths give a description of the creation of the Earth and Mankind
from Adam and Eve. Sikhism offers no account of creation. Did the Gurus not know?
The Sikh explanation of creation is much more detailed and true than the story of
Adam and Eve etc. Satguru has given the process clearly in Akaalee baanee. Satguru
first describes what was before creation: "Arbad, narbad dhundoo kaaraa, dharn na
gugana hukum apaaraa" pg 1035. This means for countless ages there was utter darkness
(nothingness), no heaven or earth. The will of Akaal reigned everywhere. No day no
night, no sun, no moon. Only Akaal stayed in solitary meditation.
Then guru jee says "keetaa pasaao eko kavao". With his one word, the universe was
created. Then what was the process? On panna 1037-38 Satguru describes that the
elements of air and water were evolved along with everything else in the universe.
On panna 19, Satguru says "sache te pavanaa bhaiyaa pavne te jal hoi. jal tay
tribhavan saajiyaa, ghat ghat jot samoi" from the true on, air (gases) were created
and from them was created water. From water arose the three worlds (metaphor or
common term for the universe and all within) with his divine light within all bodies.
Satguru continues and says, "kai baar pasario paasaar, sadaa sadaa ik ekankaar" many
times has creation been created (the universe been created) only Akaal is forever.
This clearly shows that satguru has told us that the universe has been created,
destroyed and recreated many times: we are just in one cycle of this creation. And
even commenting on other parts of the universe we can't see, Satguru says "kaytay
pavan panee baisantar" countless are the airs (atmospheres), waters and fires.
Thus it has been shown Satguru has given Sikhs an understanding of Gurmat that is
very scientific and matches the views of contemporary scientists. Very unlike
humanity being created out of mud and a human rib.
