And this leads to the question of how did this point get there?
The Big Bang theory hinges on the fact that our universe is constantly expanding outward infinitesimally. Logically, if the universe is expanding outward, it had to come from somewhere, aka "the center". That's where the "Big Bang" comes from. You must remember that this "point" you are referring too is also infinitesimally small, so small one can't even really describe it. To say it "came" from somewhere is misleading as it is impossible to perceive.
