43. Yes, I see the difference.
The problem is, the average person does not see the difference, and that is why there are two, mutually exclusive definitions in the dictionary for the same word.

as for which on is "correct" and which one is "incorrect", they are BOTH in the dictionary, so they are both "correct", unless you have some other definition for the word "correct" that involves your personal preferences rather than the authoritative sources.

As for what self-proclaimed "atheists" believe, don't we need to see the result of a poll before we can know if your claim or my claim is true? Otherwise we are both just spouting crap out of our asses just because we think it's true.

Can you post polls? (I can't. I'm too poor to afford it)

If you can, post this:

Poll for Atheists only:

1) I am an atheist and I believe there is no God.
2) I am an atheist and I don't know if there is a God or not.

The first is the position of the "strong atheist", the second is the position of the agnostic atheist that has no beliefs about god one way or the other. What will the poll results be? I'm very curious to find out if I am right or wrong, nut myu personal experience convinces me I'm right and that #1 will win the poll, even though I'm a #2 agnostic atheist.
