So if I say in RDF (on web page X) that some other RDF web page (Y)
contains the keyword "dog", then you think you can conclude that I
believe everything Y says?   

Why do you want to refer to other pages?  Maybe you want to say "I read
that page" or, "That page has some information which I believe" or
maybe, "I recommend everyone read that page", etc.  Some of these kinds
of statements (like the middle one) do imply trust, but certainly not
all of them.
