    A man went to a barber shop to have his hair and his
    beard cut as always. He started to have a good
    conversation with the barber who attended him. They
    talked about so many things and various subjects.

    Suddenly, they touched the subject of God.

    The barber said: "Look man, I don't believe that God
    exists as you say so."

    "Why do you say that?" - asked the client.

    "Well, it's so easy, you just have to go out in the
    street to realize that God does not exist. Oh, tell
    me, if God existed, would there be so many sick
    people? Would there be abandoned children?" If God
    existed, there would be no suffering nor pain. I can't
    think of a God who permits all of these things."

    The client stopped for a moment thinking, but he
    didn't want to respond so as to prevent an argument.

    The barber finished his job and the client went out of
    the shop. Just after he left the barber shop he saw a
    man in the street with a long hair and beard (it
    seemed that it had been a long time since he had his
    cut and he looked so untidy).

    Then the client again entered the barber shop and he
    said to the barber: "Know what? Barbers do not exist."


    "How come they don't exist?"- asked the barber. "Well,
    I am here and I am a barber."

    "No!" - the client exclaimed. "They don't exist
    because if they did, there would be no people with
    long hair and beard like that man who walks in the
    street."

    "Ah, barbers do exist, what happens is that people do
    not come to me."

    "Exactly!"- affirmed the client. "That's the point.
    God does exist, what happens is people don't go to Him
    and do not look for Him; that's why there's so much
    pain and suffering in the world."

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
