I dont think so. Just finding out that there is a place of nothing(void) and giving it a name to remember it by doesn't mean that it is something.*A void is just a empty space, withought atoms.*To make this sentence short it was called a void. Although, yes, it CAN be considered something. Yup thats it, nothing is soemthing which does not have atoms, but it can be considered something in the sense that it exists.

But can something without atoms exist?

Yeah sure. I mean, there are voids evrywhere. I often wondered what was between atoms, and found out that emtiness was called ether. Something withought atoms exists, , but ofcorse it does not cover any space. If the building blocks of nature had been squares, then there would be no empty space in between them. An ether is that tiny space that an atom can't cover because it has a circle shape.

Another thing that is nothing yet something I believe...Memories or dreams. You can argue that its electrical or something like that reacting.. but its not something physical that would contain atoms..just my two cents.

Personal memories would be as much something as a file on your PC is something. Is a PC file something? Depends on your definition I think.

well, void is space, which is a physical property, so i would say that physically it is something. still, it is about the minimum amount of physical reality that can exist before becoming nonexistence.
let me put it this way. nonexistence is essential for raw existence to come into being. i would consider void raw existence, in that it doesn't require any kind of physical agent to exist. however, space is essential for matter to exist, which makes up the physical universe. space is the agent that makes matter possible, and that is its only characteristic.
i think "nothing" is nonexistence, which does not take up space at all, and has no characteristics. anything with characteristics is something, because a characteristic is something.
thats my two cents

Nothing is nothing indeed why would nothing be something? If nothing was something than would something not be nothing? Where would we be then? Nowhere or somewhere?

Nothing is something because because we know it's nothing.
Anyway, I was thinking a while ago, and thought of something, which seemed as a paradox to me.
Now, heat is caused by rapid movements of atoms, and rapid movements of atoms is caused by heat, So what starts the process?!?!?!? Its a bit like what came first, the chicken or the egg.

Man I'm telling you nothing is nothing.
If nothing is something then we can't be sure of anything. then anything which has to be something which can be nothing- that throws off everything. If that is the case then we know nothing So then to preserve the order of things we need to hold on to the principle that nothing is indeed nothing.

If nothing were nothing, would we be talking about it? What would it mean to say that we were talking about nothing? Furthermore, I think that it is very much the case that we know nothing....which is still something.

the only thing that is not anything(and cant be talked about) is whatever doesn't have an opposite. What i mean is, the most basic aspects of existence(and nonexistence) have polar opposites, which they oppose. so, the property of "something" is that it exists. it is opposed by the property of "nothing," which is that it doesn't. but how can it be nonexistent if it has a property and an opposite that opposes it? this kind of cancels out its complete nonexistence. when everything that has properties is organized into a whole and labeled "that which has property" its opposite must be "that which does not have property," which would give it a property, being that it has no properties. so, i would say that the only thing that truly does not exist is whatever has no opposite, and therefore no properties. but i don't think this is possible.

nothing-- i really don't know-probably it's something which is void of everything. it's kind of near the meaning of emptiness though not quiite empty.it's just nothing but it has great impact on everyone and everything...so it is something,.
