    Recently, I have been watching videos of Hawkins and few other atheists. When comparing their point of view to how God is explained in sikhi, I see that we both are taling regarding same but they say it's evolution that fuctioning and we say it's god? What are your viewpoints?

    According to my understanding, God in Sikhism is both Nirgun and Sargun (no attributes and all attributes, respectively). This means that if "existence" is an attribute then God exists and does not exist. I believe this viewpoint was used by Guru Nanak to bring everyone together because no matter what you believe, it is included in the sargun/ nirgun concept. And that includes atheists,etc.
    Sikhs say God is the cause of everything, surely, evolution must be included in that. Although, SGGS does not explicitly say evolution is why we are here (as per my understanding), but it does not say evolution cannot be possible. So while, atheists say that that evolution is the cause, we say God caused evolution.

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!
