Really? That's like asking if black is a color, someone wrote the same idea before me but got it backwards and said white. black is the absense of color, white is all colors. A rainbow, is white light prismatically seperated by water showing all the colors split hence the rainbow. Silence is the absense of vibrations, the main necessary component for sound, which also still exists whether you can hear it or not, in both the being present sense, and the capability sense. The laws of physics dont cease to exist If I'm not there to witness it. And the sound spectrum goes far into ranges beyond my capabilities, which again doesnt mean it isnt making a sound just because I cant hear it.
No, silence is the absense of sound, yet it is the sound of one hand clapping. (How is that for being profound?) The really hard answer to agree upon is the "If a tree in the forest falls and no one is around does it make a sound?" Most people think of sound as something that is heard or detectable. The trouble with assuming on predujdice is factors may have changed. Another similar question is if white is a colour? In drawing it is the total absence of colour. In light it is the combination of the primary light colours of red, green and blue which make up any and all colours. Black is the absence of colour in light.
No, it's Not. Silence is not a Sound. Silence is defined by the absence of sound. Sound is a vibration that typically propagates as an audible wave of pressure, through a transmission medium such as a gas, liquid or solid. There is no sound at all in outer space, since there is no medium that can sustain its propagation.
It depends on how edgy you wanna be. In a poetic sense, say things like "silence is the loudest sound" or "The silence spoke louder than words." It makes a perfect metaphor, but In a literal sense, silence is the opposite of sound, and true silence can only be found in a silence chamber or in a vacuum.

Yes. Go into a quiet room, and you’ll hear it. It’s a faint white noise, like you’d hear inside a seashell. When people were put inside a room with no sounds playing and asked whether or not they heard anything, 93% of them said they did. So I think it is entirely reasonable to say that silence does have a sound. If you are put into an anechoic chamber—that’s a special room padded with sound-absorbing foam, so it’s much quieter than a room with no added sounds, even one that’s regularly sound-insulated—you will become very aware of the sounds of your own body: your breathing, for instance, and your heartbeat. So even then, there are sounds you will hear in silence. Credits: Mark Grinstein-Camacho, lived in Boston, MA (1995-2012) Link: https://qr.ae/TWPoFQ
