Tonight on Dateline this is the direct quote from Sam:
“I know that the religious belief, the dogmatism, the faith is unnecessary. I know you don’t need faith, you don’t need to pretend to know things you don’t know in order to investigate spiritual experience, or to have spiritual experience.”
#1. Your argument contridicts itself. How can you “know” that what others “know” or pretend to “know” is not the same “knowledge” that you admonish yourself in having.

You are too loose in stating what true knowledge is.
