Not sure if anyone else has referenced the following (haven't read the whole thread), but Richard Carrier as a unique take on nothing coming from nothing. He says that if there is truly nothing, then the law or principle that nothing comes from nothing does not exist and therefore does not function, so something could come from nothing because there's nothing (heh) ruling that out.
