Street Epistemology (SE): Alejandro and Karen
San Antonio, TX
21 July 2014
NOTE: While I will be the first to say that I am a novice at Street Epistemology, I would rather go out and try to learn by doing, rather than sit back and do nothing. It is my hope that these videos will inspire others to approach people who hold supernatural beliefs and discuss the methodology they used to arrive at those positions.

EXTENDED ALEJANDRO AND KAREN INTERVIEW: http://youtu.be/NW5wJLOhoC4
Alejandro and Karen are Christians who were both exposed to their religious beliefs by family, and use a combination of personal experience and faith to conclude that their God belief is at the 100 percent mark.
We define faith and discuss a couple of examples where they use that method for their God belief, but we discover that it is unlikely they use that same method for other times in their lives. After a brief discussion about what either Alejandro or Karen would accept to discover if their belief was not true, Alejandro suggests the corpse of Jesus.
However, it quickly becomes clear they would never accept the claim that the found corpse was Jesus.
Note: Since our conversation wandered a bit here and there, and there was also some nagging background noise, I decided to make a few edits to the footage when compiling the initial interview. I have, however, uploaded the full, unedited, extended video, the link to which you can find above.
Please let me know if you notice any mistakes so that I can address them here for self-improvement.
