For the most part you're probably just creating strawmen to beat up, though I don't doubt you'll find some examples.
Rationalism leads to Protestantism leads to atheism.

Many of the clichés are totally meaningless, imo!

 Nope!

Most of my links come from Christians themselves.

Well, I think you are and I think it's quite obvious. As I said, I'm not saying you won't find any examples but in all my years of being a Christian I can't say I've come across many. The other alternative, of course, is that such examples are mostly confined to certain types of Christianity which I will not utter here.

Apparently 99.9975% atheist because I believe in one out of 4000 believed in (an atheist on Facebook). Yes, check the maths as well.

They may well be, but it doesn't necessarily mean that the Christians you got them from like the cliches they list.
Are your, or your friends'/relatives', garages, lofts or sheds full of unused DIY gear, sewing/knitting machines or fabric and haberdashery stuff?
