4. The confusion arises from the fact that the terms "atheist" and "agnostic" aren't mutually exclusive

One describes belief, the other knowledge.



In common parlance however, "atheist" has come to mean "someone who thinks gods don't exist" while "agnostic" means "someone who isn't sure if gods exist."

Since you are comfortable defining other people's religions though, I'm sure you'll go ahead and define what atheism is too.
