Actually coming from a singular point is different than coming from nothing. Sounds like you lack the understanding of how the big bang theory actually functions therefore I'll discard whatever insults you're hurling at people who believe it. I have to go to my job at the moment so don't have time to get into philosophical debates about religion but yeah, science is awesome and you should respect it instead of using illogical fallacies to try and pwn people who use it as the tool that it is. It's not a religion, its a way of thinking. That's also coming from someone who understands how religion works and grew up in a religious household. Learn to be skeptical of everything not just shit you don't believe. Be skeptical about your own beliefs because I am. I didn't say big bang was even guaranteed how the universe started. That's just where evidence leads us. Could change tomorrow and I'd be fine with that, that would just require overwhelming evidence to disprove. Beauty of science and critical thinking.

Humans may crave absolute certainty; they may aspire to it; they may pretend, as partisans of certain religions do, to have attained it. But the history of science—by far the most successful claim to knowledge accessible to humans—teaches that the most we can hope for is successive improvement of our understanding, learning from our mistakes, and a asymptotic approach to the Universe, but with the proviso that absolute certainty will always elude us. ~ Carl Sagan

The hard but just rule is that if the ideas don’t work, you must throw them away. Don’t waste neurons on what doesn’t work. Devote those neurons to new ideas that better explain the data~ Also Carl Sagan (Look him up and appreciate him, read a demon haunted world sometime)
