After all, how do we square his definition with the person who says "I don't know, ...it's a faith position"?

It "squares" perfectly, it is simply honesty.

I agree that it might be honest, but you haven't answered how we square that particular statement with Dr Boghossian's faith definition (which was what I was asking)? After all, according to him, the speaker would be saying: "I don't know, ...it's [me pretending to know things I don't know]"? Unless I'm missing something...
