You're playing semantics. As pointed out previously, just because we have no words to describe "before" outside of time doesn't mean that something came, for lack of a better word, "before". The Yupiks have several words for sea ice. Just because we only have the one phrase doesn't mean all of the forms described in the Yupik language do not exist. http://mentalfloss.com/article/33693/how-many-words-do-eskimos-really-have-snow In the case of "before" the Big Bang, we have a two fold problem; describing things outside of time and the complete inability to know the answer. Logic says the Universe just did't spontaneously pop into existence for no rhyme or reason, although you are free to believe it did.
