You realize that everybody understands exactly what you mean, and that is precisely why they think you sound so retarded?
This is just like atheism, where a person will pretend that a rejection of knowledge is a sign of intelligence, and instead of ever attempting to understand the knowledge they reject, they will constantly re-frame it into the context of this knowledge being useless, because of the fact they can't directly perceive it with their senses.
Zero in almost all applications where negative numbers are used it is more reasonable to be used as a point of origin.
Say you have a table that is designed to track your debts and surpluses, which we'll measure in gold. Some of the people recorded on the table have sold you items, for which you have given them gold, and others you have sold items who have not payed and owe you gold.
How can you express this? The first thing you need to do is define your units, which without negative numbers, you could define as the total amount of gold in the world and record what fraction of the gold you currently have, which you could then divide as you sell or buy things from others. In this case you could have 1/317 gold, and when you buy a donkey with 1/96th of you gold, you would have to say you now have...95/30432 gold. Now, you sell your donkey to John for twice the price...now how much hold does he owe you? Do you see how complicated this has become, and for no good reason?
Instead, it would be a lot simpler to start your trading log at the value of "0". You buy a donkey for 10 ounces of gold. Now you your value is reduced to -10 ounces of gold. You sell the donkey for twice the price to John, and now you have 10 ounces of gold in surplus. This makes things a million times easier than trying to use alternative units just because you can't directly perceive negative numbers.
