Skepticism and or Rationalism Leads to Humanism and Atheism?

“Damien, IMO – The link is skepticism which leads to humanism and atheism.” – Challenger   My responce, well, IMO – The link is rationalism which leads to humanism and atheism. A skeptical attitude is doubt or question as to the truth of something’ so skepticism is doubt or a call for proof it is not a positive fact confirming endeavor, that is rationalism.   “Fair enough. How can one be rational without doubt?” – Challenger   My responce, I do value reasoned skepticism (methodological skepticism as a useful tool as part of my rationalism if rationally warranted something one needs rationalism to determine).
