The most frequent argument for god is an admission of having a low bar for knowledge

The most common argument you hear for god’s existence is: How do you explain [whatever]?  How did life arise?  Why is everything so fine-tuned?  Etc, etc.  And when you don’t know, boom!  It’s god.

I’ve never understood that. You can’t assume a superior position by declaring that the height of your knowledge is equivalent to the depth of my ignorance.
