I note a statistically significant difference in language between the way theists and atheists describe their beliefs. While theists say they “believe in God,” atheists often so cunningly say “I don’t believe in a god.”

And I think this subtle difference in language is a product of a profound difference in thinking – a signal to us that two people are not talking about the same thing.
