Comment: No such thing as nothing.

(See in situ)

No such thing as nothing.

I agree that from our current perspective, it requires faith to believe what the ultimate Something is, the fundamental reality behind all else; but I disagree that everything had to have come from nothing. Even if you only have a material universe, with energy, etc. that arises from a quantum mechanical system, that system is not 'nothing', right? And, obviously, from the theistic point of view, the ultimate Something is a Someone, Who isn't nothing either.

If you have any kind of system that underlies everything else, that isn't nothing. I don't think there ever was or ever will be a true 'nothing', from a fundamental, metaphysical perspective.
