No, that's just simple questions that any rational being could ask. What was I born for?

The bad news- No reason at all, your daddy got a gleam in his eye and your momma got pregnant.

The good news- Now you can choose whatever life you want to live and enjoy the simple things as well as the not-so-simple things. It's a journey not a destination thing.

why does it matter? You actions don't affect universe in longterm.
if it does not matter what we do then that includes bitching about it so feel to quit whining about it you pussy.

An easy answer to this would be to call upon the Butterfly Effect, or to answer on the ground that my actions will make my own limited experience more enjoyable and that I lack the narcissistic need to feel universally important so I don't give a damn about my actual affect on the rest of the universe, but that's too easy and would probably go over your head, so here's a funny gif:

We are not living in 19th century. Contraception is available to everyone. So they consciously conceived me and they should answer why they brought me into this world.

In all seriousness, I think Buddhism would be a good fit for you, it teaches to accept reality as it is, not as you wish it to be and be at peace with that reality.

Well it cured me from fear of death - something that reason and rationality are unable to do.

I'm hoping that you are a poe because otherwise it'd be sad to see anybody so deeply wrapped up in fear that they are actually afraid to think for themselves.

Religion doesn't cure anybody from fear of death, it just provides a way to deny that you will ever die. Living a life in denial and cowering in fear, grovelling to an imaginary being is nothing but pathetic.

Reason and rationality allow you to understand reality better which allows you to put things into proper perspective. I know many atheists that are concerned about dying because that can be a slow, painful process; I don't know any that are afraid of death because they understand that there is nothing about that to be afraid of.

That does NOT mean that atheists want to die, just that they aren't afraid of being dead. It is the religious who dream up nonsense like hell and purgatory and limbo that focus on and promote fear of death. A rational person sees the inevitability, and even the necessity, of death and uses that to get more out of life while they have it.

Atheism: it's not just for communists any more!

Not my job. You need to cure yourself.

Reason and rationality also allow to understand poo but that doesn't mean I want to step in it.

Can't do it. So anyone else will try to cure me with reason and rationality?

Do you use knowledge only to get a job? You need knowledge daily. You need it every time you decide to do something. Every time you think about something. You need it every moment of your life.

At this point you could say "Why does it matter if you die anyways?"

Well, try saying that to all inventors in human history, people that discovered cures, or that understood the universe and helped us advance our knowledge even if by a tiny bit. Einstein is dead, but can you say his studies, his learning and then his discoveries were useless? Pointless? I definitely don't think so.

They didn't save him from dying, but who knows, maybe someday we will discover how to prolong our life ad interim at will. And when we do, you know what you'll need to be grateful for? Knowledge. And people studying and expanding that knowledge.
