Couldn't it be all three?
Without love there is no hate, and without hate there is no love. Like North and South, Positive and Negative, AC/DC and Rihanna.
Also, in my honest opinion, Science, however amazingly spectacular it may be, is the answer to how and what, as opposed to why; Man's greatest struggle. This is where 'religion', of any kind, likes to join the philosophical conga line of infinite wisdom.
