First you must explain what your mean...I'm a little confused.

I don't know, it seems that the accusation being leveled is that I can't understand the arguments, or criticisms, of religious beliefs and doctrines, but I think this accusation has little merit, because I can't think of what it is here that I'm not able to understand about the opposing viewpoints.

It seems the tendency here is to equate the fact that I don't believe as you do, that this amounts to not being able to understand what you believe. You can understand a competing argument, an opposing view, without agreeing with it. I think the question here is interesting, but perhaps not as interesting for others as it is for me.

You don't even understand what people are telling you about this subject. Laughat

And that reception is what I would expect, which is not to be everybody's cup of tea.
If my relationship with unbelievers even on the internet where primarily negative that might mean something, but it's not. I get along well with more unbelievers than I don't, so that's a positive, particularly on the internet with strangers.

The reception you get is not only because you're a theist, but because you're dishonest and an outright liar.

Oh, and all this time I thought it was because I was a theist and balding. But I guess my dishonesty and outright lying make better sense than my receding hair line.

Your goofy appearance plays no discernible role in the stupid shit you spew forth in your dishonest discourse.
