← Update - Podcast June 5 Interview with Peter Boghossian - "Faith: Pretending to know things you don't know"

he mentions linguistics, and i think he has a good point because words have connotation as well as denotation. so, i'm wondering whether his use of the word "pretending" is a linguistic measure he's taken. the word includes a sense of "at some level you know something not to be the case" ... does any know if that is his intention? this is actually a question and not a comment, by the way.
