    I don't think Sikhism is a religion in the western sense and it ain't Abrahamic for sure.

    The message in the Adi Guru Granth resembles a united front or revolution rather than a consistent revelation.

    According to forum TOS you really should elaborate on this statement. What is evolving? What is not consistent?

    Please do not post cryptic, one-liner comments as threat starters. That type of posting is considered spam. Thank you.

    SPNadmin Ji, you are tactful and diplomatic as always!

    Dear Nirgun-data Ji

    I would offer the following comments:

    What is the "western sense." Also curious as to why you make this statement in the first place as clearly, its roots are not in any western philosophy or movement

    Yes it sure ain't! Thank God for that!!

    What do you mean by "United front" and "revolution" ?
    As for its revelation, it is actually thoroughly consistent throughout and many times more so than most of the Abrahamic religions and Western religions you have referred to

    If you disagree with this view, then I look forward to a detailed debate!

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!
