Why be an atheist?

If a deity or deities exist they are either weak, apathetic, or malevolent. Far too much shit happens for me to ever believe anything like that could be good and in the end I don’t benefit from believe something like that could exist so my only reaction to discovering that a deity could exist would be telling it to suck my dick. So I have every reason to believe that none of the known gods of all religions exist and if they have a problem with that then they can come find me. Else, it’s not my problem and I’m perfectly content with their nonexistence. I owe no deity any of my attention or belief, and they’ve done nothing to deserve it.
