Can there be nothing?

Do you believe in complete “nothingness” as the alternative to “everything?” If the knowable universe is everything... was there “nothing” before the universe came into being? And how can there be nothing? anyhoo... I know the answer, but I just wanna know what you think!

"Nothing" is everything not visible. "Everything" is everything visible, as well as "Invisible". So now, do I win a "Philosopher's Stone"?

I suggest "nothingness" has nothing to do with visibility or invisibility. It has to do with existence.

Does this help? (I'm guessing, "No." ) ?

One way to look at it is when I die I will no longer exist and will return to nothing.

I look forward to your answer.

“Nothing” is just another part of “everything!” ?

I don't have a clue. I'm just here because someone told me there would be wine and weed.

I was told there would be cookies. You just can’t trust agnostics ...

@mzbehavin If that were the case, I wouldn't be here.

You know the answer? Please, by all means, continue to keep it to yourself.

"Nothing" is a concept. That is all.

I find the idea hard to get excited about.
