here's another way to put it.
If I think that what I think is exactly true, i.e completely corresponds to whats 'out there', then its a belief.
If its a provisional acceptance held as accurate until better data, experience and reasoning come along, its an idea.
This is crude and simplistic, but might help.
Its just an idea, anyway...
