Is nothing accually something? For example: There is nothing here. If nothing is something, something would accually be here. Nothing is a part of something.
?
You could get more advanced if you say air and atoms are there so therefore something is here.
?
Nothing would be a part of something or you could say nothing is a small catagory of something.
?
But something is not nothing. It can only be nothing is a part of something.
?
I make nothing for dinner. So i may have not made anything but i still did make nothing. Therefore nothing is something.
?
Now can you bring up anything[b]?

alright try this one.

If nothing is something then what do you call a absence of something?

nothing is not somthing and somthing is not nothing.
They are polar extremes, they are boolean values. they are like on or off. There is iether somthing or there is nothing.
To say that you cooked nothing for dinner means nothing you did no coocking therefore you didn't cook somthing, you coocked nothing which isn't a somthing.

The first post is incredibly wrong... you start by saying is nothing somthing? and then say if it is then somthing would be here the somthinging being nothing and then conclude that nothing is part of somthing because of this. i was only refering to the first line.

That is so cool.

Oh and by the way, how do I get into that "Debate Tournament/Silly Threads" section? :--)

Well people, this is simple, nothing is clearly not something. These two cannot coexist. It is either one or the other. Define: a set as a collection of objects. Thus a set is empty if there's no objects (nothing) inside it. Suppose an arbitrary object is an element of the empty set; but the empty set has no objects! Contradiction. Thus the object cannot be an element of the empty set. Closed. Thus nothin' aint somethin'!

In the 4 known dimensions; w, h, d, and time, nothing does not exist. There is always something there, be it air, dark matter, or anything else. There is no such thing as anti-matter. In the form of an idea, "I cooked nothing for dinner." nothing is still nothing. The sentence didn't referred to an action that never took place anyway.

This post made me wonder if the thought process might be another dimension... Thanks for causing me to think.
