What's The Selling Point Of Atheism?

From what I can gather about atheism.Its a belief in "nothing." There is NO real reason as to why you're here.Why you exist.There's no significant purpose or meaing to this life.There's nothin' beyong this realm.Life is random.Religion,God.

Be an atheist and that's mean your smarter. Ultimately aren't I taking my belief out of nothing and putting it into nothing?Because atheism is a belief is it not?Its not neutral and down the line.

There is NOTHING.So to go from believeing nothing("God") to believeing nothing(atheism)what's the selling point?Isn't everything at the end just pointless?Do I really understand anymore about this life or smarter just because I don't believe in God?

Now I'm not of any orgainzed faith or religion.Not trying slam atheist.Just asking questions.

Thoughts?

Update 3: WHEN I SAY "NOTHING" I DON'T MEAN THAT YOU DON'T HAVE VALUES IN YOUR LIFE. NOT WHAT I MEAN!!
