Previously, I explained a fatal scientific error in the Granth (Sikh scripture) which describes the moon as a lamp. In this entry, I shall expose another error in the Granth, which is the idea that the planet Earth is being carried on the head of a bull:
Dhoul Dharam da-i-aa kaa poot.
The mythical bull is Dharma, the son of compassion;
santokh thaap rakhi-aa jin soot.
this is what patiently holds the earth in its place.
Dhavlai upar kaytaa bhaar.
What a great load there is on the bull!
aapay Dhartee Dha-ul akaasaN.
He Himself is the earth, the mythical bull which supports it and the Akaashic ethers.
hukmay Dhartee Dha-ul sir bhaaraN.
The Hukam of His Command is the mythical bull which supports the burden of the earth on its head.
