“Skeptical Humorist” is a play on “Secular Humanist,” which is apparently a term applied to atheists by religious fundamentalists.

I prefer the US English spelling for most words, where it differs from UK English. It is interesting that both “Skeptical” and “Humorist” have different spellings in the US and in the UK. I feel that “Skeptical” is more faithful to the original Greek.
