Can't we all just get along!

I'm reading a book about all the different religions from ancient to current times.  It is amazing how similar they all are.  The majority contain an aspect of good and evil, plus some form of a god or creator.

What I don't understand is why, with all the similarities, have there been so many wars and problems between the different beliefs?  If everyone could understand that people are all just trying to find some form of meaning in their lives whether it be Buddhism or Christianity, maybe there would be more tolerance.

Unfortunately, there are too many holier than thou morons out there who believe their religion is the right one and everyone else is wrong and going to be punished for believing so.

Unless someone goes out of their comfort zone (family beliefs) they will believe whatever they are brought up in according to location.  This alone is proof that there cannot be one ultimate religion.  Each civilization has their own beliefs according to what has been created in that specific region.

With today's society and our ability to travel to different locations, religions now have the means to promote their beliefs to all of the world; so now the religion with the most $$$ can spread the word.  Maybe this is why Christianity has the population majority with over 2 billion followers.  Of course Christianity includes many denominations from Catholic to Mormon; most of which believe the other is wrong!

Like my title says, Can't we all just get along!
