Atheist Frontier - Questioning what's Real
   








Glossary - Skepticism

Skepticism, which is often misunderstood as a form of pessimism, plays an enormously important role in Atheism as the neutral process of differentiating between fact and fiction, verifiable proof and theories, logic and fallacy, etc.

A true skeptic is neither optimistic nor pessimistic.  Although a bias of optimism or pessimism is often difficult to completely eliminate, tools like the Scientific Method, when implemented correctly, can assist in being impartial due to a lack of regard for egos and personal views.
