The main point of solipsism is that you would not behave differently if solipsism turned out to be true. You can test it quite easily like this: Stand in the middle of a road. Try not to get out of the way of a truck bearing down at you because the truck exists only in your imagination. Go on, try it. After all you asserted yourself that you don't have a solid argument for "other things".

FW doesn't want to test his ideas because they can't stand up to a moment's honest scrutiny, and he's busy making this into his religion.
