Why is this such a bad thing to say? It seems to me that this is just another way in which theists are protected from reality. There is no evidence for the existence of such a creature.
Yes, the universe exists and yes, life exists and yes, we do not know the exact mechanisms that caused these two things.
But, so what? That doesn’t mean that there might be a super intelligent, if somewhat insane and sadistic, alien out there that did either.
Why in hell should any of us have to tip toe around their baseless assertion that such a creature exists to begin with?
It’s like they’re children and we want to avoid a tantrum. It’s not that we doubt ourselves. It’s that we don’t believe them. What’s the problem in bluntly rejecting their story?
Besides, they’re not children. They’re grown adults and many of these grown adults rake in millions, if not more, peddling the absurd idea of a creator alien that’s personally concerned with the trials and tribulations of a bunch of hairless apes on a pale blue dot.
Maybe it’s time we quit coddling them and let them have as big of a tantrum as they want.
