For years now, I have sought truth through doubt. The scientific method attempts to disprove hypotheses, rather than prove them. Why not do the same with philosophical ideals? Cartesian Skepticism seeks to disprove every truth, no matter how probable that truth seems.

One quickly realizes how many truths we humans tend to take for granted, without proof. It's only a matter of time before a dedicated Cartesian skeptic learns that there is virtually no "true" proof of anything, aside from perhaps the existence of self. Hence, the famous saying by Renee Descartes:

Cogito ergo sum, Latin for "I think, therefore I am."
