This strawman is a bizarre mixture of mischaracterizations between the topics of the Big Bang and Abiogenesis.

"So, you think that life just exploded out of nothing?"

Besides the ignorance of the aforementioned topics, this strawman also uses the fallacious accusation that atheists believe that everything is an accident in an attempt to make atheists seem silly or misguided.

Counter Apologetics

  • The Big Bang doesn't make any assertions about what came "before" it, whether it was "nothing" or "something". It describes everything we know up to shortly (a very small fraction of a second) after the "bang".
  • Various abiogenesis theories tend to stipulate that life emerged from already present materials and chemicals.
  • Even if scientists were making this claim, the theist is also left with the same problem - where did their god come from? At least science has evidence to back up its claims.
