The only semblences between SF and fantasy are the structural ones ALL stories share. They are philosophically VERY different genres with different underpinnings, assumptions and methodologies.
I'm not going to bother repeating (again) the textbook definitions that show this to be the case.
Yep, considering My Name is Legion
has been a professional fiction editor for many years, you're probably better off not repeating definitions to him.
Argument from authority
Legion is talking out his hoo-hah. The definitions of SF and Fantasy as genre are well-established and understood and are NOT the same.
