Maybe. I'm not sure what point they are trying to bring up.
Do the words double speak mean anything to you? You don't really need a point with double speak as long as people buy the bullshit.

Admit it. You're secretly green with envy.

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

I would say insane, not retarted.  If you don't exist than that hottie doesn't exist, neither does her family, so if you're ted bundy, you might as well act on your desire to rape and murder and necrophilia, cuz you don't exist in the first place!   :rotflmao:

It should be I exist physically and have a brain, therefore I think I am. Who is the I doing the thinking I am? We are conscious beings because we have a material existence, we are conscious which is real, but the we that we think we are is an illusion, but a very persistent one unless you get brain damage or put under anesthesia. This idea of a mind (or soul) without a physical body is the idea that they are separate things when they are not from black and white thinking, just like arguing about inherent or learned behavior, when it can be from both. This is not logical thinking. When we have a pain in our toe, is it in the toe or the mind, or both? The physical world is self evident, the mind or soul without a body is not.   Solitary

This is a very good question because it depends on what is meant by existing and doubt. The existence of something that is physical is self evident, but the existence of mental workings is not unless it is shown to be true from neurology. When you are unconscious do you still exist mentally? Isn't it obvious that in order to think or doubt you have to be conscious mentally and exist physically.  Solitary

So if you doubt your own existence and jump to a conclusion, where do you land?  :think:

Learned about this in philosophy... unfortunately near the beginning of the class, which made it impossible to take anything seriously after that. Such a goofy position to take.

Define what it means to exist
