Which of these two books is more holy?

Post by Thinktank »

The Sikhs book says 'God is in farm work.'
Of course the Punjab area is the breadbasket of India so they're going
to encourage farmers by saying God likes farm work.

The Jew's Talmud says farming is the lowest of occupations. ( I think )
The Jews say their Talmud is also a holy book.

So here is my question:

Which book is actually holy? The Sikh's book? Or the Talmud?

You could check with the Sikhs and Jews, but you'll likely get the same answer from both: "My book is best."

So asking a Jew or a Sikh if his book is holy is a lot like asking the RCMP if
they did anything wrong when they tasered someone five times.

So I try to decide - What Would God Say? Is farm labour a good thing? Or the lowest
occupation?

And I've come to the conclusion working for minimum wage on another person's farm
in pesticides is the lowest occupation - one point for the Jews.

But......... without farms we all starve - so God really does like farms - one point for the Sikhs.

So neither of their books is holy. they were just written by people.

Which leads to another question - is the bible holy?

Tanakh is Jewish Holy book
Talmud is the body of Jewish civil and ceremonial law

The Siri Guru Granth Sahib is the Sikh's holy book

To each of the above faiths their holy book is Holy to them, hows that for answer.

Using a bit of logic, I'd say the Sikhs are right when they say "God is in farm work". First of all, you have to consider the fact that everything originates from thought. If you look around yourself, you can see that the desk, the computer, the flooring, the windows, the house etc., all originated from thoughts and ideas, then manifested into reality. Using this logic, whose thoughts originated the earth and plant life? If you believe in God, you would have to say it was God's thoughts that originated those things, therefore, what could be more "holy" than working with God's thoughts?
