Why is there something instead of nothing?
>>
because if there were nothing there wouldn't be something
>>
Because something always existed, just not always the way something exists now
>>

Cool language quirk: Nothing: No Thing: An Idea: Everything: Everything in all places at all times: No one thing: Nothing: An Idea

Every language has a semantic regarding that being the essence of reality, it's quite remarkable to review them really
\:^]
>>
Why would there be nothing when there's so many more ways to be something?

But wait. Could there be a way for there to be more than one way for nothing to be? Is this even a coherent thought? Could the words even exist to have a coherent thought about this? Hell if I know.

Because there never was a beginning to anything, just an infinite past

Not in the way that you mean
>>
If there was nothing you wouldn't be asking this question. For all we know the chance of the universe actually exploding via the big bang may a stupidly low chance like 1 in 10 trillion, but in our universe (or time) it happened, and so we are here to observe it. When our universe collapses on itself again there could be quadrillions of years before it explodes again.

why are they mutually exclusive?

Rhetorical question?

nothing cannot exist

Nope, what makes you think we're anything but nothing right now? Isn't reality nothing more than absurdity, and absurdity doesn't need a why.
>>
>>7768952

Because God decided to create something
>>
'something' is the default state
'something' is the only state
'nothing' doesn't exist
'nothing' has never existed
all there has ever been, all there is now, and all there ever will be is existence / something
nothing is simply a concept of the human mind that does not exist, has not ever existed and will not ever exist
>>
>>7769658
it looks like you are talking about God
>>
>>7768952
Because if there was only nothing you would not be here to wonder about it.
>>
>>7769664
Think of nothing like darkness. It doesn't exist. It isn't measurable. It doesn't have any property unique to itself. Darkness is just the absence of light. When all light in a closed space = 0. Nothing is when everything in a closed space = O. But because of how physics works, there isn't a container that exists which can contain nothing without contamination.

Just like with darkness, nothing cannot exist; it is instead the lack of existence
>>
Why should there be nothing?
>>
"I don't know" is the only acceptable answer.
>>
>>7769136
Of course. Some_thing: there exists something.
No_thing: there doesn't exist anything.
