In the end, what they really don't understand is HOW we know the things we know. So it makes them suspect what we know.

I see it as the converse; they know the things they know, and for them the HOW is that they've simply decided that they know--the scripture/cult leader/voice in my head said so, so it must be true.  Having chosen such an empty and useless methodology for supporting their knowledge, they assume that science must have based its findings on the same arbitrary, made-up, and useless HOWs of knowing, which are then open to be attacked despite any actual understanding of what those HOWs are (but don't you dare attack my HOWs, you anti-religious bigot..... even though I can describe your HOWs as a religion if it suits my argument, etc. etc.).
