A good suggestion, but what does it mean "to verify their
claims"? It probably means, 'to show that their claims are
true'... in which case we're back to the drawing board. It's
hard to get past 'truth', other than not to simply reject the
very concept, which I'm not sure is possible for anyone who
considers him/herself capable of making rational decisions.
