All human language uses words that persons with all points of view use to describe their point of views uncertainty, which in reality, in mathematical or scientific terms is better defined as a hypothesis, or in legal terms and allegation, or statistically, probability or a confidence interval.

I either know something to be true, from gathering a preponderance of the evidence, maybe even to the point of eliminating reasonable doubt, or I can say that I do not know a thing to be true. I could say speculate, assume, or even hypothesize, but that's hard to do in polite conversation while eating guacamole and chips and trying not to sound like a nerd. :)
