How can you doubt existence of something which must exist in order to doubt?

I would say either retarded OR lying shitstains who only come here to stir up a shitstorm and use it as a way to claim that their sky daddy exists.
Science doesn't give a damn about religions, because "damns" are not measurable units and therefore have no place in research. As soon as it's possible to detect damns, we'll quantize perdition and number all the levels of hell. Until then, science doesn't care.

Actually I had long debate with atheists about descartes "I think therefore I am" quote and many indeed do doubt of it's validity which I found strange. How can something which doesn't exist think?

They are unfamiliar with Descartes.

don't be a tard bro..er......imagination bro. I am aware that I am non-existent to an extent that my existence is being used for nefarious reasons by some outside force. I am in fact a bundle of cells used to generate small electrical currents which provide power to them for whatever they need. For that they invented everything there is for me to enjoy in my short or long life. Currently, I am a mid fifties (in a planet called earths years- whatever that means) with a wife who has shunned sex, living with an apparition of a grandkid, and watching a ceiling fan as if blows what feels like cool air across my imaginative face. Life is great as a figment of my imagination. Unfortunately when I am terminated, or die, or am whatever they do when I am done, you will cease to exist as well. Ain't that the shits. You, who don't exist, are determined only by the supplanted imagery given to me by whoever they are....peace out....aw.. fuck off, I hate talking to myself.
A humans desire to live is exceeded only by their willingness to die for another. Even god cannot equal this magnificent sacrifice. No god has the right to judge them.-first tenant of the Panotheust

No they were not. But I'm not sure if they were trolling or they really think their own existence is uncertain.

If you can prove something that doesn't exist actually exists then you might be on to something.

Which exists. I am talking about people who doubt THEIR OWN existence. Not existence of other minds.

Maybe. I'm not sure what point they are trying to bring up.
