If you set out to disprove something that is what you will do, if you set out to prove something that is what you will do. Now whether how credible, valid, reliable that proof is, is a whole different topic.

There are scientific methods and logical reasoning methods of proving or disproving claims.

There is no reason to believe all claims are equally valid, or that claimants objectives of proof will be achieved.

Many claims are utterly whimsical and easily refuted, while established scientific theories will have been extensively tested and confirmed.
