How do you distinguish the differences between the terms?
Each term has a different meaning concerning what we believe about our world view.
All beliefs are based on what we know (or think we know). Some beliefs being true, while others being false.
So how do you distinguish the differences between Atheist and Agnostic?
Dawkins once used a scale from 1 to 10 to show at one end was belief in God and at the other total non belief. He actually saw himself somewhere along the scale towards non belief. Which would make him an agnostic more than a true atheist.
So you see an agnostic as a person who doesn't believe in God but isn't sure, where as an atheist is someone who doesn't believe in God but IS sure? If so, who is the person who does believe in God but isn't sure?
I see an agnostic as someone who neither believes in God or disbelieves in God.
They believe they do not know.
I see a true atheist as someone who believes (and thinks they know) that there is no God
If you believe in God (according to the bible) you are a Christian. Assumming you are also following Jesus. If you also doubt at times... That could simply make you human.
