Hi Eric. Thankyou for the response. :)
I agree with: It doesn't matter if the way the words are used are somewhat different in one context than another, as long as it is understood what is meant.
My challenge is: The problem is that the words do not have well defined and understood definitions.
Ask a million different ordinary people to define energy and you will get close to a million different answers.
Ask a million different scientists studying energy to define energy and will still get a hundred thousand or more different answers.

I use 17 words to fully define energy: Energy is matter with existence in time, volume, charge and mass moving per second along a distance. :)
Force is harder because there are 2 types.
1. The gravitational, elctromanetic, weak nuclear and strong nuclear forces are fundamental forces produced by matter, are infinitely directional towards or away from the center and do not require movement. F = mass * acceleration applies so long as it is remembered the acceleration is due to the force produced by the matter
2. All other forces are due to matter moving per second, F = kg(m/s)/s and have a single constant or changing direction that is always the direction of movement of the matter.

Your statement: E=Mc^2 computes the quantity of energy you get when you convert some matter into energy; denies the simple reality that = does not mean converts into.
Your statements: It has been verified in experiments. It provides rules that get the mass right in numerous particle accelerator experiments; show that measurements follow the formula.
Not that matter with existence in time, volume, charge and mass moving per second along a distance has ??? done what :) ??? converted into some sort of nothing that is called energy?
Even though energy is produced, as just one example, by electrons (matter) moving per second along the distances of wires and circuits??
Or, as another example, by steam (matter) moving pistons per second along the distance of the circumference of the wheels of a steam train????
Your statement: I have no idea what you mean when you say "Energy has mass"; produces a brain freeze in me. :) All 3 words are very simple, it is only a 3 word sentence.
Your statement: what is meant by E=Mc^2 is well understood by physicists; I am trying to show that it is not well understood.

Let's look at the full equation. E^2 = (mc^2)^2 + (pc)^2.
Why is the formula the same form as Pythagoras' Theorem for a right angle triangle, c^2=a^2+b^2?
Well most very big and very small things spin with respect to themselves as they move with respect to everything else.
For example, the earth's day is one revolution of the earth spinning with respect to itself and the earth's year is one orbit of the earth moving with respect to the sun.
The scale of reality, ie us, that does not appear to spin with respect to itself as it moves with respect to everything else; is of course made up of a multitude of very small objects that are spinning with respect to themselves as they move with the object.
A rotation with respect to self is clockwise or anticlockwise around the center of mass, or an arrow that forms a circle.
A movement with respect to everything else is a line extending away from the center of mass.
Put the two together and you get a circle intersected by a radial from the circle's center, an intersection that is defined as a right angle.
© E^2 = (matter with existence in time, volume, mass and charge spinning with respect to itself (mc^2))^2 + (the same matter with existence in time, volume, mass and charge moving with respect to everything else (pc))^2. ©

Your statement: and practically applied frequently; is something that can happen without any understanding and/ or false explanations of how it is working.
For example fire has been used to cook and create for almost as long as we have existed, mostly without any understanding of what fire is or how it works.
Thankyou for your time :)
