    How exactly do you mean the word 'have'?

    It is impossible for "nothing" to exist.

    Just think about it. In it is the knowledge of the existence of God.

    Are you saying that pondering nothing is like pondering God?'

    Or Gods existence is equivalent to the existence of Nothing?

    Or that God is as likely to exist as 'nothing'?

    Or are you under the delusion that if Nothing cant exist then God must exist?

    Please explain your logic.

    nothing is irrelevant simply because there must be someone to acknowledge that nothing which would mean there is something. just as it is pointless to discuss time before the big bang

    that being said, i find joseph's logic leapy (it makes a lot of leaps, none of which reasonable )

    As soon as nothing exists, it becomes something.
    Hence the non-existence of nothing.

    "Please explain your logic."

    When I say that it is impossible for nothing to exist I mean that nothing doesn't exist. If nothing existed then there would be nothing, and that's impossible. Can you explaining how nothing can exist?

    Since "something" does exist it is only logical that "something" existed since before the imagination of man. And that "something" is what we call God.

    Please reply.

    "As soon as nothing exists, it becomes something."

    Nothing never exists. So how can nothing "become" something?

    "Hence the non-existence of nothing."

    Exactly. Since nothing is non-existant, and "something" is existant, how does "something" exist except that it has a cause?
