This is exactly what I was thinking! But the complex theological argument possibility fell through when she said, "I don't think there was anything before Christians." Meaning that nothing existed before human beings who believed in Christ. That makes my head hurt, so I'm forced to conclude that she is just catastrophically obtuse.
Exactly. "There was nothing before Jesus" is a perfectly normal theological position. "I don't think there was anything before Christians" is just idiocy.
