Sometimes I think believers must be the nastiest people in existence because they always tell me that without religion they would be crazy killing machines.
Not knowing even of the existence of a supreme being is our default state. Nature is the only 'thing' that happens around us and we are all part of it.

So Pope Gregory, you are a Catholic obviously. So how did the pope know?

No. Bible and pope are both parts of the same body: religion.
And that's all it is, I can be aware of a lot of things without placing "great trust and faith" in them.
“Bible and pope are the same things”, just an endless fount of ignorance and dumb, please stop and think
The anointing of Jesus’s head or feet are events recorded in the four gospels. The account in Matthew 26, Mark 14, and John 12 has as its location the city of Bethany in the south and involves Mary the sister of Martha and Lazarus. The event in Luke features an unknown sinful woman, and is in the northern region, as Luke 7 indicates Jesus was ministering in the northern regions of Nain and Capernaum. The honorific anointing with perfume is an action frequently mentioned in other literature from the time; however, using long hair to dry Jesus's feet, as in John and Luke, is not recorded elsewhere, and should be regarded as an exceptional gesture. Considerable debate has discussed the identity of the woman, the location, timing, and the message.
Mary Magdalene is traditionally depicted with a vessel of ointment, in reference to the Anointing of Jesus.
