Anyone else doubt the authoratative validity of our Rabbinic tradition?

The idea that the oral Torah was given to us via Moshe by Hashem is fundamental to the authority of the Rabbinic system we have today. In the end, we simply have to trust/believe that this was the case. To my knowledge, no mezuzah or tefellin have been discovered and dated to the first temple period, which would strengthen the argument that such practices go back to Moshe, and are not a result/creation of Jews of later period (likely in Babylon). Until such material evidence is found, am I justified in my doubt of the rabbinic tradition?
