Technically, saying that God is nothing is to say that God does not exist. However, your previous postings and the fact that you referred to "Nothing" rather than "nothing" makes clear that that is not what you mean.
I also note that you, like various others who come to philosophy forums, often refer to zero and one and create little hieroglyphic type euqations to explain the conceptions in your minds. As I say, you are not the only one. I am not sure if all of you who do this are "speaking the same language" as each other or have your own particular approach. It does seem that many are inspired by the notions of 0/1 and nothing/everything/The All.
Personally, my only experiences with nothingness have been during deep sleep, general anaesthetic and fainting. If God is nothingness then it would seem that It is rejuvenating, incredibly boring dull and ultimately lesser than everything that exists :)
