If you don't believe he knows the truth, you are deceiving yourself and being deceived.
Sorry to burst your bubble, but you're forgetting this Scripture.....
"You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and he stood NOT in the truth; BECAUSE TRUTH IS NOT IN hIM. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father thereof."- John 8:44

So are you saying that satan does not know he is a deceiver? And therefore not responsible for men being deceived? We know he knows Scripture. He tried to tempt Christ. We know that he is the accuser. We know that he goes around like a roaring lion, seeking whom he will devour. In order to deceive knowingly, one must know what the truth is that they are TURNING INTO a lie.
You're right. The truth is not in him, because he changes all truth into a lie. And he has from the beginning. That is not the same thing as saying he does NOT know what the truth IS. It is saying that he changes the truth to his lie. In order to deceive.
