    Yeah, I know. Which dictionary is that, by the way? There are several definitions of both terms. The prefix "a" itself means "without." An atheist is, listerally, one without god, and an agnostic is one without knowledge. Some dictionaries choose to adhere more closely to the literal meanings than others. Some go more for common usage. Some tend to philosophical or theological definitions, as opposed to lay man's terms. The truth is, both my definitions and yours are valid.

    I believe their is something more to life as we know it, who people manifest is on them, but for me yeah I believe their is a God, I just do not pigeon hole him/her with any religion!

    In other words, if you teach your cat to bark (output) and eat dog food (input) that doesn't make him a dog. It would have to chase cars, chew bones, and have puppies before I'd call it Rover ;-)
