Which one of those claims do you not believe to be true?
What do you mean by "believe to be true"?
You have informed me that there is a spider on my shoulder. This causes an image of a spider to appear in my mind. Since I would want to remove a spider from my shoulder gently/set it free and I have no reason to suspect deception from you I will probably look at my shoulder. At that moment I will either see a spider there or I will not.
If I see a spider - then I will remove it.
If I don't see a spider - I will probably say something like "Where?"
And at this point you will either giggle (suggesting that you've pranked me)
Or you will reach and remove a spider off my shoulder (which I have failed to see in my field of vision).
I can go in more detail and higher resolution about the thoughts that go through my head and the decisions that I make as I collect more information.
In this detailed movie I have set out. Where is the "truth" and "belief" in this interaction?
