We are all aware, I hope, of the scientific method, which can be used when there are objective observations to be made, a hypothesis to be thought of, and tests able to be designed and carried out to verify or not the initial hypothesis or theory (lower case t).

Do you think there is a philosophical method, a religious method, or an artistic method to determine independently verifiable facts and information in those subjects? If you think there are, how would they work? How would youget from guesswork to a method?

My opinion is that, no, there are not any such methods, but maybe this can elicit some responses, leading to posts which communicate, - and not just from the few of us stil here.

I saw this topic elsewhere, although not posed in quite the same way.
