Could God have made a world without suffering?

Yes, God can make a world without suffering.  In fact, he already did when he made the world before it fell into sin.  Adam and Eve were living in the Garden of Eden in a world where there was no suffering, no murder, and no lying. But when they rebelled against God, suffering entered into the world. So, God did not make a world with suffering in it. See also, Atheism, Adam and Eve, and Suffering

Do atheists hate the God they don't believe in?

People behave according to what they believe, not what they don't believe. When an atheist says God doesn't exist, or denies him, or works hard to disprove His existence, he is behaving in a manner that is consistent with what he believes. Likewise, when an atheist speaks against God by accusing Him of immorality, then he is displaying his disdain for God. Christians often encounter such displays of contempt for God when atheists cite God-ordered Old Testament events that atheists believe are morally wrong. When they do this, they are demonstrating their scorn for God by accusing him of doing what is wrong, and therefore being wrong. Disdain, contempt, and scorn are all synonymous with hate.
