To start I will introduce myself and explain why I have asked this question to direct responses along a certain path. I am Canadian, 21, and currently taking socio-political thought and religious studies. I am ethnically Indian, and born to Sikh parents, however my religious affiliation (if you can call it a religious affiliation) is atheism. I have always been interested in religion, and especially Sikhism because of my obvious background with it. I chose to explore Sikhism for a paper because of that very reason, and I thought what better way to gain insight then to ask those actively within the community. I am asking this community to open up about their religion and beliefs and hopefully learn a lot in doing so. So with that out of the way, here are my questions. 1) What are the reasons you either believe you are sikh, or what makes you sikh. 2) Why did you choose sikhism over any other religion or lack of religion (please no hate comments towards other faiths). 3) Do you personally believe in evolution 4) What are your personal thoughts on reincarnation 5) What do you feel about the role or state of Sikhism today. 6) (This may be a leading question, but growing up in an Indian household and experiencing Indian community, I feel it is a very important one to ask) What are your thoughts on Indian women/girls in modern society. And what would you say to Indian women/girls participating in interfaith/interracial marriages/relationships. Thank you for all your help. I look forward to reading some insightful comments.
