If your religion promotes hate, violence, and ignorance, you should switch to another religion. I would suggest for you to examine Christianity, read the Bible, and regularly go to a church that teaches the entire Bible. Jesus teach us love good & the truth, and hate evil & violence.
Of all ancient scriptures, only the Hebrew Bible and the Gospel teach the Supreme Golden Rule to agape-love others as ourselves. Agape-love comes from the hearts of people, and thus people desires to do good instead of just obeying rules. Contrast it to the Golden Rule "Do unto others as you want others do to you" or the Negative Golden Rule "Do not do unto others what you do not want others do to you." Unregenerated hearts would find ways to find legal loopholes at the cost of other people & peace. You can also find examples of agape-love in Jesus and His prophets.
Jesus vision is "world peace, goodwill toward people." See Luke 2;14, NKJV. Get a piece of paper & write down the names of the greatest scientists that you currently remember? Get another piece of paper & write down the names of humanitarian organizations that you can think of? Get another piece of paper & write down the names of the greatest universities? Then research their history, and you will most likely found them to be of Christian origins such as Newton, Galileo, Pasteur, Mendel, the Red Cross, Habitat For Humanity, The Salvation Army, reverend Harvard University, I think Yale & Princeton too.
Seek the truth with all your heart, and you will find it. Seek God with all your heart, and you will find the loving God Jesus, who led the Jews out of Egypt and destroyed evil. For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved (John 3:16-17).
Why is Christianity so beneficial to the world? If you look at the Gaussian distritbution, there are usually people at the ends (left or right) in any religions, but the Gaussian distribution for Christians as a whole are so biased in the good direction that overall in keep building up world peace. In western world, it may be hard to see as even the laws are founded on Biblical laws. However, you can see it in China. China is becoming a major Christianity with its Christians reading the Bible versus simply listening to preachers as we see in the west. With the growth of Christianity, peace and economic prosperity ensue. Whereas in the West as more churches stray away from the Bible, chaos increases. Reformations are the coming back of the churches to the Bible, and they were always followed by renaissances. Thus, I hope the Christians in the West start reading the Bible more and follow it thoroughly.
