I wish to debate someone over the existance (or none-existance) of nothingness. I contend nothing, is, always something.

Debate format to be negotiated between myself and my opponent.

Is there anyone out there willing to oppose me on this topic?

It all depends on how you define nothing. I don't want to get into a debate and be sucked in by some premeditated semantic loophole.

Do we agree on this definition?:

Nothing - The absence of matter and energy

I will contend that nothing, is, Always nothing.
