Can you tell me anything that you know with absolutely no doubt?

I exist. My wife exists. I love her. I recognize the color blue. I can distinguish between a circle and a square. 1+1=2. 2+2=4. Etc. Etc. I could go on all day.

Clever take on "I think therefore i am." One problem for you though, you admitted that either you exist because you think, or that at the very least your thoughts exist. Either way, SOMETHING exists, even if you can't be sure what. Thus you know SOMETHING, and if you can know something, you can know other things as well. Your whole system of (non)belief collapses any way you look at it.
