To me, this would fall under the heading of discernment, which the Holy Spirit would grant as a spiritual gift to believers, in addition to furnishing the guidance contained in Scripture, which the Holy Spirit inspired in its entirety, and which can serve as a standard with which conflicting information can be compared and exposed.

Use of that discernment, as well as ever-increasing familiarity with the Bible, permits believers to detect or distinguish genuine or true doctrine or findings from information that (even if presented "in sheep's clothing" (Matthew 7:15)), could have the effect (or even the actual intent) of sowing doubt, or of coming between the believer and God.
