That's simplisitc.  You commonly refer to agreement of beliefs, as in "Do you believe 2+2=4?"  Science is only possible because people can agree on facts.  The account of how Alfred Russell Wallace tried to prove that the Earth is round to the head of the Flat Earth Society is a cautionary tale about that.
