Difference Between Agnosticism and Atheism

According to Wikipedia, Agnosticism is the philosophical view that certain metaphysical claims – such as the existence of God or the supernatural – are unknown and perhaps unknowable.

Whereas, Atheism is, in the broadest sense, the absence of belief in the existence of deities. Less broadly, atheism is the rejection of belief that any deities exist. In an even narrower sense, atheism is specifically the position that there are no deities. Atheism is contrasted with theism, which, in its most general form, is the belief that at least one deity exists.
