Hate's a strong word.

"hate" and "hated" appear nearly 200 times in the bible.

Well it's no surprise why Atheist seem to hate Theists so much. I would to if I had things shoved in my face like that.
"Let he who is without sin cast the first stone".
"3 “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? 4 How can you say to your brother,‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye."
"12 So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets. 13 “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it."
"21 “Not everyone who says to me,‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me on that day,‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ 23 Then I will tell them plainly,‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’

So I make a statement where I say I have sympathy for why Atheists seem to hate Theists so much because I see Theists shoving their own hate things in the face of Atheists, and then I get criticized by Atheists for saying that. Amazing. I would have thought that Theists would have criticized me first.

The internet can be hostile.

However, I felt that you trying to put me, as a non-believer, into a box marked, "Hates All Theists". That's not the case. I don't.

I never mentioned you specifically at all. I think you can figure out which multiple Atheists here DO fit the bill. It's not hard to see. And I merely observed the comments that Theists make towards them that are equally hateful, so I could see where all the bad feelings on either side come from.

As far as me, I take no negative comments directed at me seriously at all. I merely wonder what someone could possibly be thinking when they make them and whether they even read the post that I made. But at the end of the day, it's just words anyway on a silly little forum and everybody forgets the little kiddie nursery rhyme of "sticks and stones may break my bones but words can never hurt me". Maybe some people need to re-attend the first grade, because they sure DO get hurt and angry over words.

Sometimes, I'll pull out the scalpel and finally respond back in a really bad and deep cutting way, just to show them the mirror. But if someone is civil with me, I am always civil with them, and it even takes me a while to become uncivil or cutting to them, but after a while, sometimes, after a while, that's the right answer.

Cowardly theist liar, first faking a conversation, and then regressing back to the theist spam tactics.
I knew your game before you even started punk.
So what others have said is true. You ARE 16 years old. I think the use of the word "punk" pretty much sums it all up. But heck, you're not angry at all, right? Oh no, no no no, not me. LOL!!!

Well according to the rules of the English Language, if it is used as a descriptive title for something, then it is capitalized. Even if I forget to do that sometimes.

Aren't you from Sweden? Descriptive titles get capitalized in the middle of sentences in English. If Theism, which is a descriptive title, is capitalized, then the rules of English also say that Atheism gets capitalized as well. Languages are not supposed to have religious biases.

I've chosen not to capitalise the religious terms I have no respect for.

Yes they are. Every bit as much as Theism and Theist. Go look it up in the dictionary. As I said, language does not discriminate based on ideology. If you want to do so, then fine, that's your choice.
