Q: O que significa What's the difference between "believe in god" and "believe god"??

Yeah, you're right about your suspicion. XD

"I believe in God" can mean many things, not just "existence" or "can help me", depends on the context.

It could also mean you believe He is powerful to save, or whatever attribute, character, etc.

"I believe in God"=
"I believe in God's power to save."
"I believe in God's existence."
"I believe in God's promise."
"I believe in God's faithfulness."

It depends on what you're talking about/is happening.

"Believing in someone" really means you "put/have faith in them", that's the term!

Hope this gives you a much clearer picture.

Q: Mostra-me frases de exemplo com what is the difference count and calculate.
A: count - to determine the number of something. It means adding up, or tally up.

e.g. She is counting the stars in the sky.
Note that it sounds strange to say that she is calculating the number of stars in the sky... unless she is a scientist, then that actually makes sense! So calculate in general implies more effort is required as compared to counting.

calculate - to figure out a value of something that involves more than simple counting.

e.g. Google Map can calculate the shortest route from your current location to your destination.

Sometimes for universities, "athletics department" can stand for the physical space where the athletics department is located, but it is not really like that with "police department".

"He conducted an experiment" He took control of the experiment and carried it out (again, not literally. "carry out" can sometimes mean to see it through until the end). This is more specific than "He did an experiment."

Basically, conduct is used for doing something while controlling it, if that makes sense. It's just more specific than "do"

Q: Como é que se diz isto em Inglês (EUA)? Hello !
What is the difference between “Also” or “Too” ?
Because Sometimes the people said “ I have that one also “ 🤔 and not too
A: “Also” y “Too” significan “también” en español pero tienen distintos usos.

Ambos quieren expresar “algo más”
Pero “Also” es para añadir algo. Por ejemplo, “I have a car and I also have a bike”
O “I also do that too” también puede ser expresado

“Too” puede ser usado cuando hacer algo también o cuando quieres expresar que algo es mucho. Ejemplo, “I like my car way too much”

Cuando una persona dice algo tipo “I have one also” pienso que está hablando incorrectamente a menos de que haya dicho eso añadiendo a algo que había dicho anteriormente, pero aún así es normal entre los nativos de un idioma ya que ellos usualmente se entienden.

Siempre se usan esas expresiones entre amigos y de manera casual, pero no para algo más formal.

Other questions about "Difference"

Q: what is the difference between reduce and decrease?
A: The main difference between the two is their usage rather than meaning.

We use "reduce" mostly as a transitive verb, so "the company reduced the cost" or "she reduced the volume".
It's usually incorrect to use it intransitively (there are some exceptions, however), so we wouldn't say something like "the price reduced" or "the volume reduced". We can use it in a passive construction, though, so "the price WAS reduced" is natural.

We use "decrease" both transitively and intransitively, so "she decreased the volume" and "the volume decreased" are fine. Passive constructions are okay but slightly less natural, so "the volume was decreased" is uncommon.

In short:
I reduced the volume ✅
I decreased the volume ✅
The volume reduced ❌
The volume decreased ✅
The volume was reduced ✅
The volume was decreased ❌
Q: As a noun,what is the difference between ‘response’ and ‘reply’?

Q: What's the difference between forelock / bangs / fringe in American English?
A: I have never heard forelock in regards to human hair, maybe more common with animals like horses.

Bangs is the most common term in the US, which refers to the hair hanging in front of the forehead/face.

Fringe might be used in the UK to refer to the same thing. I have never heard someone in the US say it.
Q: Could you please explain the difference between "on the contrary" and "to the contrary"? I'd appreciate it if you give me examples using them as well.
A: I have never actually used either of these phrases, but I think this link explains it quite well:

So “on the contrary” refers to a whole statement and comes after a comma

“To the contrary” marks contrast to a specific noun

Otherwise they mean the same thing!

I would say this is very formal, and the casual way of saying this is “on the other hand” (after a full stop)

Hope that helps :)
