Metahistory.org charts a passage beyond the received scripts of history and culture,

Belief, by definition, depends on suspension of critical judgement.
The power of beliefs inheres mainly in the fact that they cannot
be judged, rationally refuted, or critically disproven—or proven.
They are "unfalsifiable," to use Carl Popper's term. Beliefs
