are Sikhism and other religions created just so that old people are not scared of death ?

That's why they always talk about after life next birth previous birth but nothing that helps in this life ?

That's why Gurbani keeps saying one who recites God's name daily is saved from death, But he will die anyway.

Dharmic people ( those who do good ) are always crushed and evil people are always powerful ( one may say that only God knows who is good and bad, but deep down we know this is true )

  • Religions are a holdover from the real spiritual experiences of their "founders." First the teacher teaches how everyone can have these experiences of God. Then people fail to practice. Then people worship a man who had an experience in the past. Then people fall into the delusion that God is outside and become lost in the trap of otherness. Unless people actually transform themselves and break through the enticing veil of maya, religion descends into ritual.
  • All religions started with a technology of self-transformation. When that is understood and practiced with full commitment it works.
  • I would say Dharmic people appear to get crushed and evil people appear to be powerful. That's what it is, appearance. In reality people either base themselves in love or in fear. Love is always stronger than fear in the long run. We tend to judge by appearances and in much too short a time frame.
