In fact both are as different as chalk and cheese. I guess you need to study both over again. And your adamant refusal to accept the definitions inspite of having been provided with the authenticated references, has led me to study heat and temperature over again. To check if I was wrong anywhere I had a study of heat and temperature for half an hour just a little earlier, and what I have come up with is that the definitions of both heat and temperature as put forward by you are wrong. I have already detailed about temperature. I have elaborated heat in detail in reply to chemguy's post below. Read it carefully.
I can rattle of a thousand more references to prove that heat is a form of energy and temperature a measure of it. Can you just provide me only reference to prove me wrong? Please do me this favour.
Here is the reference..

And every where, u have been giving ur own "intellectual analysis and interpretation", not references..
