Not true. But if it was, so what?

I think he's jealous of our ability to be good, decent people WITHOUT the promise of a reward of eternity in paradise

I accept atheism because there is no evidence of a god, and thus no reason to believe in one.
And if by selfish desires, you mean the desire to live a peaceful happy life, and let other people do the same, as long as they don't disrupt my life excessively, then yes, I indulge my selfish desires as much as I can.

Also because the evidence does not support any other position.

How do you "accept" atheism? It's not like there's a whole belief system to adhere to. It's just "I see no evidence for the existence of any gods". That's about it.
My selfish desires and ideals are to try and be a good person, to treat others as I want to be treated; with kindness and respect, and I think that a job worth doing, is a job worth doing well.

Nope, but it's a nice perk. I can choose my own ideals, yours are continually supplied by some authority, who actually uses his brain?

A lot more people proclaim Christianity so they can pretend they're something they're not ( better than others)

People generally accept fundamentalism so they can indulge their own selfish desires and ideals and still convince themselves that god likes them best and is all ready to give them a set of keys to a mansion in heaven.

I don't accept atheism, I reject the idea of God.
