Good observation on scepticism

Via Rational Jenn, I came upon this short post that makes a good observation on scepticism1

These humanists have gotten rid of God, but they are still left with altruism, a religious morality. I’ve decided their epistemology is also a leftover. Skepticism is basically the desire for knowledge to exist without context. They want to know something without sensing it and without forming any concepts about it. These folks will only admit they know something if they know it in the way God knows stuff, by no means at all. They have a religious epistemology, without the religion. Weird.

Very well put.

1) I spell that scepticism, not skepticism.
