The Sikh scripture attempts to focus on the relevance of Scientific Vision and Interfaith Dialogue during the 3rd millennium. Science and Religion are not polarized in the Sikh text. The interrogative technique is very much at the heart of the SGGS, and is extremely valuable in that it instills freedom and creativity in the minds of its readers and hearers. Guru Nanak’s basic principle that we are made up of the same stuff as the rest of our universe prefigures the Big Bang Theory that we have all emerged from the basic matter of the universe. We discern in SGGS a process that “de-centers” the earth. Out focus is directed from the earth into exhilarating vistas beyond our notions of space and time. Interestingly, Guru Nanak made these claims when the geocentric model of the universe was still dominant.
