well in Piscean age that was for 2000 years ended in 2012 was the age of Jesus christ,Muhammad and Buddha was the age of "first i believe then i experience" but as now in 2019 it's the dawn of Aquarian age we are moving to "first i experience then i believe" which is the age of Guru Nanak.Sikhism is a very practical and advance religion.

Guru Nanak stopped a boulder with his hand, so that was experience first I would say

Doubt is described very clearly in Gurbani. It is the veil of doubt that prevents us from joining God and seeing Truth. So that in itself reveals that it is a mistaken question. If we are Sikhs, we accept our Guru. The word of God has come directly to our Guru Jis and is written. It is not like Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji is full of stories, it is full of facts. Some of which science is only now starting to realize, and some of which is yet to be realized. It isn't blind faith. One must first accept the path, to have the lived experience and realize how it is actually true. Giani Sant Singh Ji Maskeen's kathas address this - in religion, one must have faith first and then they will realize afterwards.

Faith is only possible for the person who has all the good things happening to him/her.
