### Why isn't the Pythagorean theorem a law?

The axiomatic structure of geometry, as initiated by Euclid and
then developed by other mathematicians starts of with 8 axioms or
postulates which are self-evident truths". Chains of logical
reasoning can be used to prove theorems which are then accepted as
additional truths, and so on. Geometry does not have laws, as
such.
