Actually whether one likes it or not, even the most cold-hearted and steely-eyed rationalist eventually has to just believe things. The trick is to keep beliefs to a minimum. Some of my beliefs include believing that the rules of first-order predicate logic can never fail, and that those rules are the same everywhere in the universe always. I have a few more, and so do you (and Bob) if you look deep. (None of this is to defend any claim that Bob "believes" some particular thing.)
