Well, they must exist, or you couldn't talk about them. If you think of something that *really* doesn't exist, such as the non-abelian group of order four, then you can't talk about it, can you. Come to think of it, I grew up in England, where I don't think the Easter Bunny does exist -- or at least I've never heard of it.
