I know its definitely not the battery cuz my lights and alarm still work but when I turn the key in the ignition all you hear is a knocking sound from the engine, is this the starter? I have a brand new ignition module so its not that, its gotta be the starter, right?

First check your battery connections. Make sure that they are clean and on there tight. Then If that doesn't help, I would look at the starter. It isn't too hard to take off and if you take it to an Autozone, they will test it for free.

The starter draws more current than the alarm and the starter, still try boosting it. If not it sounds like the solenoid is NFG or something like that.
But who cares for the price of a new one they are cheap enough since they last for a long time.
