Lol, calm down didn't think you would go out all attack. Firstly your point on Badshah Darvesh Sahib Sri Guru Gobind Singh Maharaj, yes the 10th master did tell us to follow the king of kings Dhan Dhan Sahib SGGS Maharaj, I'm not disagreeing here. I'm under no ilusion, Sri Dasam Granth is not the living Guru. However, if you dont believe in Sri Dasam Granth, what Nitnem are you going to do with 60% of the bani is from the wisdom of the great 10th master.
Another good point, if Sahib-e-Kamaal Sahib Sri Guru Gobind Singh Maharaj wanted us to read Sri Dasam Granth, the Dasam Bani would have been in the living master Dhan Dhan Sahib SGGS Maharaj. This is where people make a mistake. This ties in with your argument about structure of Dasam Bani compared to the bani of the great great 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 9th masters. This is why:
Dasam Granth Sahib was not created specfically for guidance in living a Gursikh life, or how to mediate or not to treat ill of women and other similar principles of life that the king of Kings Dhan Dhan Sahib SGGS Maharaj shows us. Dasam Granth was made to produce the warrior spirit and give strength to Khalsa during the battles. This is why people assume that because Chandi Di Vaar, Chandi Chritar and other hindu-god references involved hindu god's, it means that Dasam Granth is fake. Clearly, if you doing Rehrass Sahib da Path shudh, you will read this line every day.
Mai na gadeshah(i) pritham manaaoon|| Kishan Bishan kab-hoon nah dhiaaoon|| Kaan sune paihchaan na tin son|| Liv laagimoripag in son||434||
I do not adore Ganesha in the beginning and also do not mediatate on Krishna and Vishnu; I have only heard about them with my ears and I do not recognize them; my consciousness is absorbed at the feet of the Supreme Kal (the Immanent Brahman).434.
This is quite clear from 10th master. Chartiropakhya, again debated by many, is simple. Charitar = story, opakhyan= told from a long time ago. Here, Guru Sahib has used many western tales about women and how they play tricks. It is moral guidance given by the great 10th master.
Finally, you can debate the legtimacy of the Dasam Granth. But I find it funny man. When one of your family members are in hospital with serious problems, or you are scared of a bully, or you want to well in your exams. Why is it that the first thing people will run to for guidance is Chaupai Sahib, a dasam granth bani. Its a bit of double standards isn't it. Jaap Sahib, Akaal Ustat, Chaupaid Sahib and Twaie Praasad Svayeeai all sing praises of the great almighty God, echocing the praises set out by the greatest philopsher this world has ever seen, the greatest 1st master. Sahib Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji Maharaj.
Dasam Granth isn't living Guru. But it isn't fake. If you are a amritdhari Sikh, what nitnem will you do. If you abandon Dasam Granth, you are virtually saying thanks but no thanks on the sacrificer of sons, the greatest warrior alongside his grandfather, the emperors of emperors, Nasoor Mansoor Guru Gobind Singh. Even if my arguments are a bit dodgy, I bow to the efforts of Sahib-e-Kamaal the 10th master, hence why I take privilage in reading Dasam Granth bani.
