I never understood this about "agnostics"

I think the question is in the semantics. What meaning of atheist is true? What meaning of agnostic is true? How do we know who to believe? What meaning is taken most seriously? I've heard Agnosticism described as "One who doubts the existence of god". Also heard it as "Whether or not God exists is unknowable" So which is correct? I used to consider myself agnostic because I didn't feel I could prove the lack of existence of "A" god. I still do doubt the existence of god. However, lately I have become more prone to also "deny" the existence of god.
