Why doesn't God love Atheists? One has to figure, if God loved Atheists then, having experienced God's love, they wouldn't be Atheists?

(John 3:16) “For God loved the world so much that he gave his only-begotten Son, so that everyone exercising faith in him might not be destroyed but have everlasting life."
God doesn't force people to believe and accept the good news of his kingdom.

It is entirely possible to reject the love of someone who loves us, either another human being, or God.

God loves everyone.
Entropy -- "Given that God is typically portrayed as affection starved and craving worship" Funny! You're a real hoot! : )

I'm sure Odin loves Atheists despite them not believing in him.

It's a 2-way street, which is God's part and there is man's part. As illustrated in 2 Chron. 7:14.

But most atheists were believers at one time, they are atheists because they don't believe God exist. Primarily because there is no proof any gods actually exist.
God loves EVERYONE (Jn 3:16)--in this life.
The afterlife is a whole different story (Rev 21:8), and greatly depends on how each of us responds to God's love in this life.

Because there are no gods to love atheists, because there are no gods.
God loves everybody! Enough to be the perfect Father and allow His/Her children free will.
When we are born we are effectively blind, and gradually we open our eyes and our other senses, brain, heart. etc. Then we go to school for advancement, and have respite breaks and go back and learn more - according to our abilities and progress.
It is the same (equivalent) spiritually - as above, so below. We don't criticise babies for being who they are so maybe we might try not to judge people who are "spiritual infants" for their as yet spiritual blindness. We were all there once!

No one can experience love from something they don't believe exist.
