yeah, and starting from different false premises you can easily get to the opposite outcome (slavery non acceptable / Godfather not the Greatest).

How do you establish which is the best conclusion (truth or merely acceptable) if not on the basis of a rigorous check on logical reasoning?

Did I ever suggest to the contrary? A combination of checking the validity of the premises and the logic of the argument is the only tool we have.
