The only reason I consider such things, like the existence of Europe or Paris is because I have faith in the people who tell me (Like the anchor men and women.)
Are you picking up what I'm puting down?
When I refer to knowledge and fact, I talk about things that can be proven. I've never been to Paris either, so I don't have any reason to believe it exists. But, it can be proven to me that it exists, if in no other way than that you can take me there and then I'll have no choice but to believe you. But you can't take me to Narnia, you can't show me a real dragon, and you can't take me to heaven and introduce me to God. When anyone can do any of those things for me, then I will admit that those things are knowable facts.
