Personaly, I 'believe' you are correct in that statement, that it's more likely that God doesn't exist than he does exist, which is why I'm an atheist, but I cannot possibly claim to 'know' for definate that God doesn't exist, so my conclusion can really only be a 'belief'.

Well then to clear this up, I suggest that whenever you see me talking about atheism, you should automaticaly infer that that's the definition I'm using.
