In the Satanic Bible it says 'God, by any name that he is called or by no name at all, is seen as the balancing force of nature, not at all concerned with human suffering' or something like that. If so, why do Satanists insist that they are their own gods, that there is no god, or whatever? And if there is no Satan or there's a Satan that isn't concerned with us, why acknowledge (s)he and say 'Hail Satan'?

If you think it's a dumb question, that would imply that you realize an easy answer to it, in which case, why are you asking?

It is in fact easy. Did you read the sentences preceeding the one you quote?

Man has always created his gods, rather than his gods creating him.

...the Satanist simply accepts the definition which suits him best.

That pretty well sums it up.
