All the religions on Earth could be 100% wrong and there could still be a Purpose, a Reason, a Creator (or, perhaps more likely, creators). As an atheist I doubt it, but I don't object to THAT belief.
We'll never learn how to solve the problem of "too many apes and not enough bananas" while God commands us to breed. We can't even address a problem until we see it. In that regard the Abrahamic religions, in particular, are like a "whispering blindfold".
The beautiful words in the Bible, Torah, and the Qur'an do NOT excuse the revolting words and horrific ideas that remain. The fact that you have to threaten some people with eternal torture to make them believe it (or say they believe it) should tell you all you need to know.
