There are too many errors in this series of posts for me correct. However there is one thing that has been said that is true - the universe does have 0 energy. This has nothing to do with matter/antimatter since both have positive energy and when they annihilate give off energy that is equal to their rest masses. The universe has 0 energy because the negative gravitational potential energy exactly offsets the positive mass energy that creates the gravitational field.
