For what context? I don't know, but I'm surprised there might be anything better than "ex nihilo", that seems to have a similar meaning plus insinuations of delusions of godhood?

Well, my original idea was to use it in the context of moral philosophy, but once I'd thought of it, I thought it could be used more widely.

You see, with moral philosophy, ex nihilo and a priori could imply "you've found the Root Of All Good", whereas ex tenues auras doesn't imply anything so grand.

Ah, good point. Yeah, I expected "ex nihilo" to be equally good, but you're right, if it COULD be taken non-sarcastically you may need to clarify it or say something else.
