Ok, let's try it:

Why then do we see atheists consistently getting the way that they negatively present themselves wrong?

Not sure that helps. Would you be willing to try again?

Not sure how it's a fallacy if it's true. You've been invited on several occations to present evidence for a central athiest doctrine, but have not. Therefore, if there is not central doctrine that guides behavior, then only individuals can be held accountable for what they do.

So you would feel better if atheists (as a whole) were less intelligent?

Participation in these forums is voluntary. No one is forcing you to read. Also, if theists have the right to post their thoughts and opinions, then atheists have an equal right to post theirs' (and vice versa).

Bad arguments and fallacious thinking are bad arguments and fallacious thinking. Not sure how the shody rationale for theism is our fault. If people don't like having their arguments refuted then perhaps they aren't prepared to participate in such dialogs.

That's quite the accusation, coming from you (as he painstakingly responds to every single point in this post, knowing that none of his points will be acknowledged).

Examples?

And when the belief actually is delusional? Again, not sure how that's our fault.

Guilty. Although in my defense I don't think it's wrong to ask for straight answers to straight questions when a dialog is being held in good faith. So maybe I'm only partially to blame on that one.

Yep, I'm sure that there are. Just like those right-handed serial killers.
