Thanks Josh! I agree that the empirical challenges you mention are much more serious. But one thing that I'd suggest is that changing the way we talk about these issues is worthwhile even here. For instance, I don't think we should take the studies we have to indicate e.g. that 'intuitions are stable cross culturally' or that 'intuitions are unaffected by disgust cues'. Different intuitions will be different. Likely some will be stable, others not. Some will be crossculturally varible, others not. Even within a category like 'epistemic intuition', I doubt we have enough data to draw a generalization like the one you suggest above. Maybe intuitions about the epistemic import of reliability e.g. work differently from intuitions about whether knowledge is the norm of assertion. I'm opposed to drawing broad conclusions from the data on either side. The full picture is likely to be tremendously more complex.
