    Sorry, i don't have an answer to your question. Just this: in the tme that it took you to type "sorry for the lazy typing" you could have made your post more understandable.

    lol ok sorry

    let me try again

    christian ethics state that humanity has been given dominion over the planet, so humanity can use this power for the good of mankind. But then again they also share the view that God is in control and that God can punish or reward its creation.

    how are sikhs supposed to treat the environment
    like we kno that every human is equal etc but r we allowed to use animals for transportation? r we allowed to use their fur etc? [i kno this is basic stuff n i hav an inkling tht sikhs r not encouraged to do this, but i jus wana kno in more detail to the reasons 'why'..]

    are there any explanations to natural disasters and the loss of innocent life?
    kalyug?

    sorry if its still not clear..i did try my best.

    Gurfateh

    In Japu Ji Sahib,we are told Balihari Kudrat Vasia.ie be ready to sacrifice for that(God) who lives in nature.

    Unlike natural powers being wordshipped in other faiths we have Akal served within whole of the nature.So that means to attach sprituality while serving the environment.
