^See the pattern as a telling indication of zero being an even number?
I'd like to know from any who disagree, how could 0 not be an even number?
Zero is an even number. In other words, its parity—the quality of an integer being even or odd—is even. Zero fits the definition of "even number": it is an integer multiple of 2, namely 0 × 2. As a result, zero shares all the properties that characterize even numbers: 0 is divisible by 2, 0 is surrounded on both sides by odd numbers, 0 is the sum of an integer (0) with itself, and a set of 0 objects can be split into two equal sets.

0 is an anti-number.
0 - is a complete circle; it has no beginning; it has no ending
Well, obviously, this would be dependent upon context, which is something that we do not currently have.

it's less than 1 but more than -1, which, when you think about it, is daft as you cannot really have less than nothing.
there is -1 degree, but surely that just denotes that the zero is in the wrong place.
lol. All of the above.

Do you have a source for that, or are you just making that up?
0 - is infinity
