lots of atheists say that religions are the main source of hate in that world, and many of religious people claim the same of other religions they don't believe in
if that is real, and if really religions are so bad like that, why do the majority of people believe in a religion if a fact is obvious why religious ignore it

In my view, there is such a thing as unconditional love*. However, so far as I know it is:
relatively rare (doesn't happen to everyone, and infrequently happens to anyone),
usually extremely brief (typically lasting only moments),
is as much (or even more so) a perspective or way of perceiving as it is an emotion,
cannot be forced to come about (there is no guaranteed path to it, or means of bringing it about),

I've prayed to Woden, Thor, Dionysus, Freyja, Frigg, and various Pagan Deities. Also pray to the dead and find it spiritually satiating.
I believe that a human being can become a god or goddess , and that some of the Deities are spirits that once had a body.
I think much of the Bible...

What is your interpretation of John 1:18
Bibles can explain the verse de facto in the verse, some bibles doing so, not a problem.
Yet for those of us using the deity titles as specificity, in originality, this would clearly denote Jesus as a god, or The God, /monotheists.
Catholics don't view the Bible as sole authority. But I have been studying it quite seriously recently.
It makes me wonder about the average Catholic who has very little knowledge of scripture outside the gospels. Does it really matter? maybe not. Our Christian action is the main thing.
