| | How do you discern metaphysical truth?
A lot of people, including those on this forum, seem to feel very certain about the truth or falsehood of any number of metaphysical claims.
My question is, how do you discern what is true from what is false when it comes to metaphysics?
For example, some people believe in any number of different creator deities and argue about which one is really the supreme one. Others deny the existence of any deity of this sort. Some believe in a "source". Some believe in affirmative prayer or law of attraction. Some believe in an afterlife, others do not. Some seem to stitch a bunch of different beliefs together to make many of them true.
What methods, if any, do you use to discern whether beliefs you have or would like to have are true or false? How much emphasis do you put on the truthfulness of your beliefs relative to how useful or agreeable they are to you?
