Summary: My tenacious interlocutor returns to discuss his lively Street Epistemology Discord server engagements that occurred in the interim. I do some more "messaging" than normal in this one, likely in response to them asking me questions. te·na·cious /təˈnāSHəs/ adjective 1. tending to keep a firm hold of something; clinging or adhering closely. 2. not readily relinquishing a position, principle, or course of action; determined. 3. persisting in existence; not easily dispelled. Watch video of talk here: https://youtu.be/HQWeRF0OBG4 Note: I found in interesting how "importance" of the claim was being viewed differently by both parties here. The students seem to be using it as "needed" while I seem to be viewing it as "fantastic." If only I had asked something like, "Are you saying that, the more necessary a claim is to a person, the more likely the attestations of others from a long time ago are true?", or something to that effect. IL2 at one point asks, "What happens to me?," as if that should be a factor in assessing the truth of a claim. I was later reminded about a discussion I had about differences in adjective meanings, like we might see with a word like "important" or "extraordinary". In their view, it seems, if a claim is "important" to them personally (like "Jesus rose from the dead," it's less likely someone would lie or be mistaken about the claim, and therefore you can accept what they stated as true to a high degree of confidence. Whereas from my perspective (and perhaps others who might be more skeptically-minded) we see "importance" as a biasing factor to control for; the more important or impactful one might find a claim to them personally is a reason to apply more—not less—scrutiny to the supporting reasons. Check out Pinecreek on YouTube and his more advanced "Flying Man" ( https://youtu.be/2ZNiCpeF_Jg?t=4789 ) example, which is further along than I was here with my off-the-cuff car metaphor in 2019. I'd like to see this idea of how we might be using adjectives differently explored further in future SE discussions.
