Solipsism doesn't say you don't exist it only says that everything except you is your dream.
But do you agree with Descartes that your thoughts are enough evidence of your existence?

Because apparently there are people in this topic who disagree with Descartes so I wonder if they are not certain if they exist or not.
Would be funny if there are people walking around not knowing if they exist or not.

RE: I think therefore I am
Nah in all seriousness. Like I said earlier, it just makes more sense to me and the way I think. I could be wrong.

Seldon would you be able to read this message if nothing exists at all?

RE: I think therefore I am
Sorry mate, I was being silly. I do that. Yes I believe that I exist. I believe that I exist because I am sat here considering my existence. If I didn't exist then I would not be aware of anything at all. Though, that doesn't mean that I think that I am just a mind projecting the world around me. Like I said earlier I think that my mind is a byproduct of my material composition. Slightly off topic. I was making chit chat.

I'm merely a product of your mind. Or am I not? Could anyone be certain.

I think *pause for dramatic effect* that you're confusing the question with that age old, lesser popular adage, 'Cogito Ergo Es'.

RE: I think therefore I am
I think the question "do you exist" is an enigma. The proper question should be "when did you become aware of your existence?"

The empirical evidence of a persons "existence" would be easy to prove, however, the self awareness of existing has to be self realised at some point in ones early life.

But when?

If bullshit were music some people would be a brass band.

Nothing, nevermind..... I'm not going to waste any more time on the subject.
