When christians claim that atheists ignore the evidence for god, atheists point out that the evidence is lacking. I guess you could say that we try to have higher standards for evidence. Christians seem to think that asking questions constitutes evidence, such as "how could the universe form without God?". Atheists realize that such questions are not evidence at all. Only answers are evidence. There will always be questions, and their existence is not evidence for or against anything.

the fact that one believe something comes from nothing and the other believes everything comes from God are just different ways of saying I have no friggin clue.

But if you want to feel you are better than other people knock yourself out. In your case the evidence is so overwhelmingly to the contrary that there is no real reason to make an argument here.
