..gravity, magnetism, mathematics, logic, geology, physics, and on and on and on. I believe them because they cohere. All are predicated on fundamental axioms, and the evidence plus logic simply bolsters their "claims."

I also believe in taxation and rape and cancer and diabetes. Again, as an empiricist (or "Humean", or "anarcho-materialist", or "atheist", or "realitarian"...) the overwhelming evidence convinces me. I believe in many things of which I disapprove, yet their existence seems to be irrefutable.
