The is no such thing as nothing, it is a mathematical value or a grammatical term. It can not have ontology.

It is self evident in the term "nothing". Nothing is no thing the term proves my proves my position.

Con

If nothing was "no thing" then you would not be able to say it and therefore this argument could not exist in this reality. so there has to be something as "no thing" and then there's the movie where the nothingness is coming in there nothingness is such a thing perhaps a creature of some sort. If you would like to argue nothing is "no thing" then perhaps you would like to argue that infinite is everything, anything, or anyone. http://www.dictionary.com... on this dictionary it says "something that is nonexistent." but in that sentence it says that it is SOMETHING that is nonexistent therefore it is still something but it just does exist in this realm or universe.

"no such thing as nothing," Most of the universe is nothing, (not a thing but space defined by things). But then again without this nothing we would not have a univers as we know and dont know it. So "nothing" is probably a lot of something I do not know about. The same could probable be sad about the space between atoms. space between proton and electron..And the space between "smaller parts".

True you cant land on nothing throwing a dice. You cant trow an average of 3,5 in a throw. And possibilities do not exist. You can not throw a "16,66 %" "6"..
