My stance to any belief is - if it helps you and motivates you to practice the noble eightfold path- then go ahead and believe it! if it hinders you in the path to 1) becoming a better person 2) developing mindfulness, concentration and insight- then please let go..
In any case, what can be verified now- we need to hold lightly- what more needs to be said about that which cannot be verified now! We may have faith in the Buddha's word- nothing wrong in that- only people who have trust issues find this a problem- but even then, please let go.. Arguments about who is right, is in the realm of defilements-kilesa, IMO.
