Well, I can understand if you think that what you said should not have been taken personally, but I don't think you know what 'hate' really is. All genocide; the Holocaust, Inquisitions, ISIS, they all start with dismissiveness, condescension, insensitivity to what others believe. Its no skin off my back. I have no trouble sleeping at night, but you have been desensitized. I know this from my own struggle with hate addiction. You don't even realize how antagonistic your words really are.
The bible is just as quotable as any other piece of literature, especially so in a conversation about faith.
Think on it.

If someone asks "is there a cat in the box?"
"yes", like "no" are stances of belief until the box is looked into
"I don't know" doesn't describe atheism, but agnosticism
If when asked if you believe in a god you reply 'yes' you're a theist, if you reply with anything else (including 'I don't know') you're an atheist.
Hey wait a minute no one blew them off. I read them and I have to say it is a shame that this had happened.
