By admitting you might know nothing you throw absolutes out the door
No. Holy crap is that a strawman. We know, for example, that when objects fall on earth they do so with an acceleration of 9.8 m/s^2. I know my birth name. I know the president is Barack Obama.
That stuff won't change (EDIT: except for the President, in which case I will still know that Barack Obama was at least President from 2009-2013).
Because we don't know everything, we might know nothing is nonsense.
"Because I haven't collected every dollar in the world, I have no money."
"Because I don't know every baseball statistic ever, I can't know that Ryan Braun hit more than .300 last year."
"Because I don't know every player on Alabama's football team, I can't know any of them."
Holy logical fallacies batman.

I know you know things! But in your worldview you can't.
You steal from my worldview is what I'm saying
Once again, you keep repeating yourself. Either show evidence of that, or stop it.
We absolutely can know things. I just stated a bunch of things I know. Then I just stated how the "if you don't know everything, you know nothing" statement is nothing but a (really stupid) fallacy.
If you have actual proof, spit it out. Otherwise stop repeating it. It's not true and it wasn't true the previous 9,000 times you said it.
You already said there's a possibility that you know nothing
Physics are the order of the universe. Things happen based on a set of rules, even if applied scientists haven't observed or theoretical scientists haven't tested them all yet. Romans thought Zeus was throwing lightning bolts; now we have evidence and understanding of how static electricity works. Turns out lightning is just a bunch of electrons trying to balance.
God can exist, but order in the universe doesn't prove anything. Physics can just be in the same way that a God can just be; that's not stealing from or proving a creationist worldview.

Yes because in your worldview there cannot be absolute laws of physics
Why? You have said this a million times and never explained yourself once.
Because laws of science are only state tendencies that we have recently observed in our part of the universe. In a world with no God, you will never be able to claim absolute truth because it doesn't exist. Like you said earlier, you have very small amount of know knowledge while the universe has an infinite amount. There is always the possibility of that knowledge completely contradicting everything you think you know.
Sorry for the delay, I was driving
I already addressed the "if you don't know everything, then you could know nothing" fallacy. You didn't respond to that post, so either you missed it or ignored it on purpose.
What is your standard of truth?
Nonsense question. Could you please rephrase?
How do you define truth in your worldview?
So truth would be what corresponds reality?
That's what the link I posted said.
How do you know what's real?
Observation of the world around us.
So you use your senses?
How do you know your senses are valid?
