Is knowledge also a belief?

We already had the “understanding” discussion (look it up in the thread: “Is knowledge also a belief?”). All understanding has to do with information, but not all information has to do with understanding. A stone that gives information to a geologist does not need to understand the information that it gives.

Also, nobody said that bellief and knowledge are exactly the same, but they have the same evolutionary root.

Eliminating belief does not epistemologically help. Knowledge did not occur out of the nothingness and also not without help. If you believe that knowledge is absolutely independent, then you are more a believer than those who say that knowledge is not absolutely independent.
