This is the open thread for the program. No topic, just calls. Caller Eric, from AZ, most fun. Can something come from nothing? Can there *be* nothing? If it *is* or *was*–then could it have actually been nothing? If nothing does exist, does that mean it’s something? If nothing cannot be (as Eric defined it as nonbeing), then it can never have been–and so there has always been, according to Eric, something–by definition. So, something has never come from nothing–as nothing cannot be. I’m not sure Eric had thought this through before calling, despite his boast that he beat George (H.) Smith in a debate.
