The question that irritates me the most is "Where did you come from if you don't believe in God?" I used to answer "Some Sperm and Egg my parents threw together" just to piss the questioner off. Then I heard "The Universe from Nothing" on Youtube a couple years ago and now my answer just drives them to hysteria. I start out with " Well, there were some atoms floating around" and they jump on Evo-denial. I smile and hold up a hand and say "I haven't even got to our sun forming yet, we've got billions of years to go before we even start talking about the formation of the Milky Way. I then start back into free floating atoms exerting gravitational pull on one another to eventually start forming the first molecules and glaze goes the eyes along with a few surly comments about scientism and they never bother me again
